We visited in October and the choices were relatively limited but it didn't stop us from making a few visits! We thought that it was tasty but have a place closer to our home that we like better.

Great ice cream shop. A ton of flavors and combos to choose from. Ask for a sample taste if aren't sure about a flavor. Go there at the beginning of your visit, so you can keep going back for more!

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

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.
