“Disappointed - did not taste homemade”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

The locals that we knew in Ptown told us this was the best ice cream place - we went twice and tried different flavors each night and both times were disappointed by the flavor of the ice cream. It did not taste homemade like creamery ice cream at all (i.e. Penn State or Boardwalk ice cream at NJ shore). Will not go for ice cream here again - wasted calories on this!

“This particular experience....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Was just here the other week and for the first time ever, ordered the soft ice cream....chocolate. Having had the hard ice cream all the other times, and loving it, i decided to try soft this time. Although it looked normal, the soft ice cream had absolutely zero flavor...in fact i wouldn't even have known it was ice cream after tasting it. Perhaps they mixed the flavours wrong, etc...not quite sure, but it was like licking tasteless cold cream with a brown tint. I would go back again though for the hard ice cream, but never ever for the soft.

“Fantastic ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

If you love ice cream, you'll love Lewis Brothers. I was conservative and got a twist soft serve with chocolate sprinkles (jimmies in Mass.) and it was great. But everyone else picked some of the different hard ice cream flavors, and everyone enjoyed it. Would definitely stop again if I were in P'Town.

“A Must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I'm a huge fan of home made ice cream so we had to stop here when we walked past it. I got the Almond Joy flavor and it was incredible! We ended up coming every single day of our stay in PTown... it was that good. I wanted to try different flavors but the almond joy was so good that i just kept ordering it! I ordered the kiddie size and it was probably still a couple scoop's worth of ice cream... big servings. My husband tried different flavors each time and said the peanut butter was his favorite. Whenever I'm back in town, I will definitely be coming here again.

“WHITE RUSSIAN is a must!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The mint chip ice cream was a little too minty, but the white russian flavor was delicious! It's an unusual flavor that was made perfectly by Lewis Brothers. I will be back for more of that!
