No matter what time of the day, there seemed to be a line for ice cream from The Juice Bar. We tried it twice, just to be sure it was so delicious. Confirmed - so yummy! Big cones. Tried the Crantucket (vanilla ice cream with...dark chocolate covered sweetened cranberries), the Carl (chocolate with mini Marshmallows and chocolate chunks), peanut butter cup, vanilla, blackberry, toffee crunch, and almond joy. All highly recommended!More

Delicious and creamy. The coffee Oreo is full of Oreos. The Banana was smooth and tasty. The blackberry ice cream and raspberry sherbet weee good but the pistachio was better. Definitely expensive but worth the treat.

After waiting in line on one occasion starting from across the street (we went twice) I wondered what being the second most popular ice cream place on the Island must be like? I won't name names but its Jack and Charlies just around the corner....Are they like Hertz rent-a-car, second so they try harder? Anyway, yes, Juice bar is very good ice cream. Would I wait in line for 45 freakin' minutes if this said ice cream were on the mainland? %$)@ NO! But on Nantucket it's the only serious choice I guess. It moves quickly, the line that is but THEN you go out in the back and wait for your name to be called to get your ice cream. So it's a two step process which is a bit annoying and only adds to the wait for your holier-than-thou ice cream experience. Honestly, the waffle cones smell better than they taste, which IMHO was bland. Onward. Being from Massachusetts where we consume the most ice cream per capita of any US state and having no shortage of great ice cream here, Juice Bar is really good but also has no real competition either. Do Jack and Charlie try harder? Should you skip Juice Bar with their mondo-long lines? Will you suffer FOMO if you do? Hey, no one said vacationing would be easy or even that fun all the time, right?More

We tried the fresh watermelon juice which was delicious. They have so many flavors of homemade ice cream to try. We didnt really love the Crantucket. It came highly recommended but it was too sweet and the cranberries were so frozen that they were hard...to eat. Would recommend this cute shop for an ice cream for anyone visiting Nantucket. Seems to be a staple on the island.More

Excellent ice cream!! Some of the best I’ve ever had…while there was a fairly long line as expected, it was totally worth it.

It was a very disappointing recent experience especially considering the price and hype surrounding Juice Bar. It was close to $13 for a two scoop waffle cone of way overpriced coffee and chocolate. Unfortunately, the ice cream had very little flavor. Both the coffee and...chocolate seemed to be missing any coffee or chocolate???! So much so, that we thought we might have COVID? But the waffle cone tasted great, and we have subsequently tested negative, so we know it was not us. I will not be returning and saving my ice cream dollars for a Ben and Jerry's or a Klondike bar... tasty, reasonable and no need to fill out a mortgage application to eat.More

Do not be intimidated by the line! It moves very efficiently. Ice cream is also worth the hype with rotating special everyday. Thought it was a little pricey even for the island but worth splurge for a 1-2 time visit

If I'm walking by and the line is short, or there's no line, I'll get myself a 2 scoop waffle cup. It makes me so happy. Their Almond Joy ice cream is my favorite. I don't know how they do it year after year, but...it is pure happiness in a cup (or cone). It's a hoot to see the line in the evening, and they even have a crossing guard b/c the line stretches to the next block, but I get it. It's a tradition to have a Juice Bar ice cream. Don't pass up the opportunity if you find yourself anywhere around Broad St - near the Steamship ferry.More

Ice cream is creamy, good but not best I’ve ever tasted. Homemade cone is good, again not memorable. Most expensive ice cream I’ve ever had ($12 for waffle cone and 2 scoops) but this is Nantucket.

This is by far the best ice cream place in Nantucket, and the best one that I have ever been to. The ice cream is worth the wait, don’t be deterred by it. They only accept cash, but have an ATM inside if you need...it. Definitely try if you go to Nantucket. Tip: Go before the late evening rush to beat the line.More

Yes it's expensive but worth every penny. I have been eating Juice Bar ice cream since early 80s and it has seriously never let me down. Love this place.

We always stop here for ice cream. The ice cream is great, they have a wide variety in flavors and sizes. Everyone can find something. There is always a long line, and it moves quickly.

There are many ice cream choices on Nantucket and we heard from several folks this was the spot. Yes, it’s location is excellent but the ice cream was average. In Sconset we had Giffords of Maine freshly scooped ice cream at the local market, and...shipped in from Maine we enjoyed it more than The Juice Bar. Maybe we caught them on an off day, maybe not. I guess in the end the flavor simply did not stand out, but of course we finished it, after all it is ice cream!More

We were here on the last day of the season. Many flavors were sold out. There was line to buy the ice cream. We thought it was just average.

Sorry I was during the summer season in Nantucket. Why not contacting the Office of visitors or the business itself they might answer your question suitable.
