I almost always get the chocolate peanut butter or the coffee Oreo but there are many more flavors to choose from. Reasonably priced and delicious as always. Keep up the good work guys!

The bomb! We tried this homemade ice cream at the Lobster Claw And Pound and got hooked. The ice cream is so creamy, large selection and super friendly service. Thank you and yes, we will be back.

Stopped by Martel's at about 6:30pm. There was no wait to order, the sunday and freeze were both delicious, and the staff was helpful and friendly.

Have a varity of ice cream, and it's very good, price is reasonable. but if it is in the evening don't sit at the picnic table you will get alot of bug bites.
