Great spot to take the grand kids. Easy walking distance and exceptional ice cream. The sundaes are spectacular!

They sell real frozen custard. The best treat in Cumberland county if you are an ice cream lover. Open all year in case your sweet craving hits in the winter time.

Seriously over-rated by locals! I've lived here 20 years and am yet to figure out the romance Carlisle has with this place. It's just ok Ice Cream. Brusters, Leos, even Ritas are better.

The hand-dipped custard is unequaled. I previously thought The Meadows franchise had the corner on frozen custard, but am glad a Carlisle local revealed the amazing products at Massey's. The fat content and sugar content but be through the roof, but who cares!

This truly is homemade. Flavor change so it is worth going often to try something new. Well worth the trip to Carlisle. Fresh made waffle cones are a plus

Visited on a Friday night in August. Scooped ice cream was great and service was quick. Prices are expensive.

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
