“BEST ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I LOVE the Captain! Never had a bad experience in the dozen or so years I've been visiting. Love the peanut butter fudge, orange creamsicle, peppermint stick!

“Large ice cream is VERY large.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Captain Dusty's Ice Cream in Manchester-by-the-Sea is a nice stop after a hot day at the beach. They have a variety of unusual flavors and very generous sizes.

“Don't get too excited...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

We were looking for a sweet treat after a great seafood dinner and came upon Captain Dusty's, just around the corner from where we were staying. It promised homemade ice cream and offered unique flavors...white russian, black raspberry, puppy paws...

The taste just wasn't memorable. What flavor that we there, quickly disappeared. It was creamy, just nothing special.
