This local chain has excellent ice cream and a neat backstory. We tried the Edgartown and Oak Bluffs stores and quality was consistent.

We tasted the sinful chocolate ice cream and went back on 3 occasion for more! Never had better in my life!

If you have been cycling on MV and comes across this delightful beergarden in Edgartown, treat yourself to a cold one.

This is a small place to enjoy the home-made ice cream at Edgartown - the famous island. They also serve sandwiches which we did not try. There was a big queue when we stopped here, but it was cleared very fast. Serving efficiency is excellent! We liked orange-pineapple flavour and it was very good. We strongly recommend Mad Martha's Homemade... More

Mad Martha's has been around for a long time. The ice cream is OK. It was a little watery with not a high enough fat content.

Excellent ice cream but the prices are phenomenally high. Visit the ATM or the local bank before you go.

A staple in Edgartown, MM's has a large selection of flavored, floats, ice cream sodas, and more. Recommended by many of the locals, it is among a number of such in Edgartown. My personal favorite is Scoop Shack, reviewed separately.

We usually stop in at Mad Martha's each summer, but perhaps I had forgotten the prices for just a single scoop of ice cream: six dollars for one scoop, with chocolate syrup. After an expensive dinner down the street, maybe this isn't so much, but obviously it made an impression on me. The ice cream is as good as always,... More

Like many Ice Creams shops on MV, cash is the only thing accepted. The Blueberry ice cream was especially good this summer. The average cost per scoop is $5, but for a family of 6 bring your cash.

Soo tasty!! I got the same flavor of ice cream every place I went while on the cape, and this place was the best!! Butter crunch is the way to go!! And from what my boyfriend says, the root beer floats are might fine as well!!!!
