Good old fashioned custard

Friendly waitstaff and helpfull. Great custard. Reminds me of my youth. Not far off the highway and open late in the summer.

I had been a huge fan of Massey's for many years, but ever since they've been under new ownership things just don't seem to be the quality they used to be. And the service is less than friendly. It's always been a younger crowd working there, but it used to be a friendly younger crowd. Whatever you do, DO NOT... More

This is the place for perfect old school soft serve. My husband loved it so much he went back for seconds.

I have tried other places but nothing beats Masseys frozen custard, I would never go anywhere else. It just doesn't compare! Love Masseys

If I could stop here every day, I would. I have tried several different things (hand-dipped, soft-serve, and milk shakes). They are each my "favorite". The only negative thing I have to say is that the menu sign is a little hard to read and the "flow" for ordering is a little awkward. Patrons come in from both doors, and... More

I've been going to Massey's since I was a kid. The chocolate/vanilla custard twist is always a favorite but a chocolate malt always makes my day! If you're traveling through Carlisle, PA....you cannot go wrong with an ice cream treat from Massey's!!

They've been here for many years and now they are open all year long. No indoor seating, so eat on benches or in car or take home. They always change up the flavors which is nice. Soft serve and hard. Favorite scoop is Crème Brulee which has bits and pieces of the crunchy sugar glaze in the vanilla ice cream.... More

Excellent! Loved the various flavors and would definitely go back. The custard is different from your normal ice cream so expect something similar but oh, so much better!

We stopped at Massey's many times when we lived in Carlisle and enjoy coming back whenever we're close by. They offer a large menu of offerings and large portion sizes. Something for everyone.
