We enjoy the years gone by atmosphere. It is always like stepping back in time whenever we visit. The ice cream options are excellent and their ice cream cakes rock! Their personalization of the cakes and attention to detail, along with the quaintness of this establishment, make it an absolute favorite of mine!

I repeat! Only for Ice cream. It is hard to believe that the home of the best malts in the country is home to the worst food.

We enjoyed eating here. We had some deep fried vegetables and shakes. Service and food were good. Very nostalgic and quaint.

Enjoyed the ice cream and the staff are great!! We talked to the gal behind the counter and she's been helpful with directing us to better places than we have tried in the area (see other reviews). She's concurred with much of what I've stated about the others!

If you love ice cream, you need to taste Mullen's! This has been a favorite ice cream place of mine since I was a kid. They have many different flavors and you can get it in a waffle cone, regular cone, or a dish. It's very creamy ice cream which, in my opinion, makes the difference. One of my favorites... More

Want a taste of the old fashioned atmosphere of an ice cream shop. My husband and went on our first date here and it hasn't changed a bit. The food is great but the ice cream tops it all. If you are a malt or shake lover- be sure to have one. If you do have someone a little older... More

Stopped at Mullen's with my kids the other night because they LOVE it. It has fun, old atmosphere and is part of Watertown history, but the high school girls that work there are often inattentive and seem to care more about the friends that stopped in than the other customers. Overall ok though.

Working in Watertown I heard wonderful things about Mullen's and was not disappointed! They have excellent ice cream and malts and I love their broccoli bites! I plan on putting this spot down as a place to stop at when meeting friends in Watertown!
