A multitude of ice cream's, ices, sundaes and smoothies. Between the three of us we had five different flavors, and all were good. The selections include all your favorites but I was also surprised to find orange-pineapple, and it was goooood. They also have a wide selection of cakes and other desserts. There is table seating available. The only reason... More

I enjoyed going there for ice cream after dinner. I think I am going to go there again in the future. Servings are generous.

the line is always long at Lizzie's - good selection of flavors - i got the no-sugar added coffee and it was not remarkable - hoping for more flavor. honestly, could be a bit cleaner on the table tops. It was a cold evening, so maybe I would be more upbeat on a summer evening.

The ice cream at Lizzy's is beyond good. It's fresh, homemade, and will bring joy to anyone's taste buds. Unfortunately, seating in the shop itself is limited, and on crowded summer nights the line is often out the door. However, this is a small price to pay for the sheer goodness of the ice cream at this hidden gem.

You can travel around greater Boston but you will not find a better place for Ice Cream and is so user friendly, they love children, adults and groups, they have off and on entertainment and this place has become a downtown destination for Waltham, Ma visitors located in the midst of so many of the best restaurants in Metro-West it...

We attended a Christmas show in Waltham and were happy to find someplace open afterwards for dessert. We passed by the pastries on display and had the ice cream. I found it grainy with flakes of ice, not creamy. My ice cream had the flavor of cinnamon but needed something more. A bit disappointing.

Long lines are the only drawback here. Excellent selection of yummy things to put a smile on the faces of both the young and the old.

Reliably excellent ice cream. Wide variety of flavors. Sometimes on weekends a trio of musicians play Renaissance music in the back room: recorders of various sizes, auto-harp, cello-like stringed instrument, plus some singing. Unique and a plus.

We visit Lizzy's often and enjoy it immensely! The chocolate orgy and mocha lace are our favorites. I also keep a quart of their ginger ice cream on hand at home. It's great!
