All natural, hand made. Very nice selection, all delicious. I had a root beer float with vanilla ice cream, outstanding. Reasonably priced as well.

Nice homemade ice cream. Visited based on recommendation of friend. A bit expensive, but serving size is good. We skipped lunch and went for the peanut butter cookie dough.

On a island full of ice cream, this is the best. Great Flavors (peanut butter crunch, coconut were my favorites) plus good ones for kids. They also have shaved ice which is a favorite of my daughter. Eat quickly because this smooth, natural ice cream does melt quickly.

Our 11 old twins had ice cream here every night after dinner.. Pricey but there are no deals in Edgartown. Ice cream was tasty with awesome service. The students had a tip box that marked tuition... CUTE!!!

Probably the best ice cream on the island. Kinda hard to find on Dock st. across from the docks, but when you do, it's delicious......ice cream is all handmade with both average run of the mill flavors and a selection of eclectic flavors as well. I had the sea salt caramel truffle, and it was out of this world. Also... More

We tried a few different places for ice cream in Edgartown last week and this ice cream seemed the most homemade. We had some cookie dough and fudge mixture and it was delicious. We would have gone back again but they weren't open during the first part of the week.

Great place for a pick-me-up in Edgartown. Ice cream was delicious with some unique flavors but we stuck to the classics which they did well: root beer float and chocolate/chocolate chip.

We went here on the recommendation of our waitress at the Seafood Shanty, expecting good, homemade ice cream. I saw the s'mores flavor and went for it, expecting at minimum something involving chocolate and marshmallow. I am still unsure of the base ice cream flavor--it was light colored like vanilla but didn't have any vanilla or marshmallow taste to it.... More

Was bustling on a weekday night and after tasting a few flavors, I can see why! The espresso chip and black raspberry flavors were great and the cute candy shop atmosphere is fun. Convenient location right in Edgartown.

The Scoop Shack is a Mom and Pop ice cream shop located in Edgartown, MA on the beautiful island of Martha's Vineyard. Our Homemade ice cream is made from the finest ingredients in small batches right here in our shop. After years of culinary training and stints in two Michelin star restaurants I decided to try and make the best ice cream I had ever tasted. I truly believe that we have done that, and I hope that you do too.
