The French raspberry truffle is the bomb. All the ice cream flavors are wonderful and the lemon sorbet is amazing as is their hot fudge sauce.

I decided to make a quick stop here today to get my daughter some ice cream for a treat after work. There was one car in the parking lot and so I thought it would be a quick stop which it needed to be since I had my groceries in the hot car. There was a young girl hand packing... More

We know ice cream from traveling. Smugglers is by far the Supreme ice Cream Parlor on the Cape. Black Raspberry and Coconut are definitely the Favorites. They make their own Superb Whip Cream to go on your favorite Sundae.

Smuggler's has excellent ice cream: great flavor, not overly heavy, reasonably priced for home made ice cream. Their fudge sauce is fantastic. When I was there last year, they sold individual slices of their ice cream cake / pie; this time, they didn't have slices available (I admit I was disappointed), although it was the end of the season. Hopefully... More

Ok, so I have tried the top 2 or 3 home made ice cream places in the Dennis/Harwich area of Cape Cod to find the best ginger ice cream and Smuggler's beats the others. It is sooo creamy with big pieces of ginger in each bite - try it :)

The ice cream here is really, really good - I had (on different visits) the salty carmel, the pistachio (with real pistachio nuts) and chocolate chip and they were all excellent. A pint is around $6 and a single scoop around $4.50 - so it might be cheaper to get the ice cream in pints to go. The place gets... More

Some women diet down to fit into clothes. Some diet down for school reunions. I diet down every year for a summer of Smuggler.

Always good ice cream. Always a line but it moves quickly. Their new salt caramel flavour is delicious. I also love their grapenut with vanilla. A Cape Cod staple.

This is a big favorite with locals and tourists alike. Lots of choices of ice cream, sizes, toppings, etc. Ice cream cakes or pies are available, too. It's a local tradition to come here and then sit out on the lawn or lean against the railings and enjoy a sumer evening.

We have been enjoying this ice cream shop for years. They have many many favors & different types of cones. Even when lines are long it moves along quickly - they have a lot of staff behind counter - very efficient. Best ice cream shop on cape. This year it was $4. For single scoop & $4.75 for double scoop... More
