As we have been coming to the Cape the last 40 years, we do go to places out of nostalgia, The Four Seasons Ices cream is one of them. I do not know if the ice cream used to taste better, I do know that it has become very expensive. 2 medium icecreams, = $8.80 U.S. The ice am was... More

We've been to Four Seas several times. Ice cream is good - lots of flavors and options. We love the building itself - very unique. Rolling, uneven floors; old; however this may NOT be good for someone unstable on their feet or for wheelchair access. Very narrow and somewhat "hilly" inside and out (my reason for 4 not 5.) We...

Don't be intimidated by the long line, it moves fast and it's worth the wait. Try the black raspberry ice cream it's outstanding. JFK had Four Seas ice cream shipped to the White House. It's that good!

The ice cream was good, but I've definitely have had better. The place is tiny and not very clean. Counters were all sticky and you can see all the ice cream scoopers sitting in foamy ice cream water. Just gross. Cash only! We have been here in the past and I think the ice cream has definitely gone down hill... More

Four seas ice cream and been around for many many years! Simply because it is one of the best ice cream places on Cape Cod. It's creamy smooth and all natural. The line to get in is never ending and I think it starts the minute the place opens. But believe me it's more that worth the wait. Thumbs up... More

I may be biased since I've come here since I was a little girl but it's the best ice cream anywhere. Every year I make sure to visit at least once, even though it's a three hour drive from where I live now (ok, so I do visit family while I'm at it). But where else can you get Cantaloupe... More

Have been to Four Seas many times over the years as others in my family want to go. I enjoy the atmosphere, the wait, the craziness but I will skip the ice cream next time! i want to like it and enjoy the texture but always underwhelmed by the taste. I am a chocolate guy and their chocolate is just... More

Cash only. No waffle cones. No waffle bowls. My children threw away their chocolate and black raspberry. Never before did they ever!!! Go to Katie's.

You must either work for Katie's or good friends b/c you left reviews within minutes of each other. In the 50+ yrs I've been associated with Four Seas never seen a child throw away our chocolate or Black raspberry or any flavor! I will gladly give a blind taste test to any person or you children! I'll buy the ice... More

This is the most amazing ice cream you can get on the cape. Whether it a walk in or a sit down meal, the atmosphere is positively wonderful. It will truly take you back to the 1970's

Since 1934, Four Seas has provided Cape Cod with the finest ice cream and customer service. An old blacksmith shop turned ice cream parlor is where, you can sit on stools at the counter or at a dining room table. Old-fashioned ice cream sodas, frappes, and ice cream flavors like ginger, penuche pecan, cookie do, fresh peach, and black raspberry. Four Seas has been winning national and local competitions for decades, and has been named in the top ten ice creams in the country by several publications. We are committed to working with customers’ needs, from delivery options to unique flavors created especially for a specific company. Many local restaurants, ice cream stores, beach clubs, caterers, golf clubs, and local markets purchase wholesale 3 gallon tubs, toppings, cones, and/or quarts. Off-Season hours 11-5 Wednesday thru Sundays for quarts, toppings, and ice cream cakes.
