Love their ice cream....stopped after visiting the Centerville library. Unfortunately, even mid afternoon it's busy. And you have to reach over sitting patrons to order and receive your ice cream. This is challenging for someone with a disability.

We had heard all about this local ice cream legend, and since we were staying right across the street at the Craigville Beach Inn it was inevitable we would be paying a visit-- or two -- as it turned out! Big crowds Friday and Saturday nights but moved quickly and servers were efficient. Only disappointments were that many of the... More

MMMM. What can you say about a place that provided ice cream to Caroline Kennedy's wedding party? This place is a must do when visiting the Cape. It is walking distance from the beach house on Craigsville Beach where we were staying.

A longtime favorite among locals, I've yet to bring an outsider in here who wasn't converted to my belief that this is the best ice cream in the world. Chip chocolate ice cream cone if it's your first visit. Lobster sandwich if you're there before lunch service ends.

My husband and I enjoyed the best ice cream we've probably ever had here on our honeymoon. We loved it so much that we called to see about having it shipped to us (a little too expensive). So do yourself a favor and have your fill while you are here!

Some of the best ice cream I've ever had, and I'm an addict. The classic structure keeps up its charm and the staff are extremely friendly people.

No credit cards but an ATM is on site in case you rarely carry cash Some different flavors but enough solid choices if you aren't feeling brave. I thought their prices reasonable and their employees very friendly and patient. (I tried three flavors but ultimately went with a staid choice. My husband was irritated but there wasn't a line waiting!)... More

If you love peanut butter, they have several options for the sweet tooth! There are long lines in summer but that just tells you how great a find it is.

Four Seas was opened many years ago by my math teacher, who only hired workers that could add all items on an order in their head. To this day his son continues the tradition, and it is s true relic and a blast from yesteryear! The thickest creamiest ice cream, and nice lite sorbet go well with hot fudge on... More
