I really enjoyed my milkshake at Captain Dusty's Ice Cream. A quaint, small little hole in the wall, Captain Dusty's must get terribly busy. I got there just as the Captain was about to retire for the night and the girls let me and my buddy get a quick milkshake and cone. We were not disappointed! Rich, milky ice cream... More

Can you say heaven? This little hole in the wall ice cream shop was encountered on our walk to the House of Seven Gables. I was going to get an ice cream cone but I then saw the sign for this Mojo Frappe. I was in love after my first sip. I was ready to leave my husband and soar... More

Stopped in on a hot day to grab something sweet. The little girl behind the counter could have used another employee to help her out, as The line backed up pretty quick. I had the witches brew flavor in a cone and it was tasty, however my friends vanilla shake tasted "odd" so we promptly tossed it in the trash.

This stop was very worthwhile; the flavor choices are numerous, the servings are generous, the price is right and the taste was most enjoyable. It made the walk back to the parking garage less daunting in the afternoon heat.

Captain Dusty's is close to the House of the Seven Gables - we stopped after our tour for a treat. The ice cream selection was good, and the serving generous. It was good stuff. They also had two sherbets and two sorbets - our 12 year old had a mix of the sorbets and really enjoyed it. They have some... More

Great ice cream choices, some unique. Very friendly and outgoing staff. The "single scoop" servings are gigantic; take the cup when the staff recommends it! Fun place.

Not worth the walk out of town. Hard ice cream is served soft, didn't even stay on cones, stale waffle cone, no crunch in the butter crunch. Great fruit smoothy earned it 3 instead 2 stars.
