Fine Cape-Cod-type clam shack, lots of deep-fried seafood options with picnic tables out on the lawn. Wonderful relaxing atmosphere if you can go-with-the-flow of lots of families out enjoying themselves in the humid warmth of a New England summer evening. Makes waiting in line seem like fun. Clam strips especially good. Lobster roll also available. Fine selection of ice creams,... More

This is a wonderful spring-thru-fall hangout for everybody in the Norwood-Walpole-Dedham-Westwood-Medfield-Millis-Dover area. Wonderful ice cream and equivalents, plus a small restaurant for fried clams, hot dogs, etc. Bubbling Brook is a major multi-town institution! Good outdoor seating, and family pets are welcome to join the warm weather rumpus. Very affordable, great welcoming attitude - lots of fun, not fine dining!

My wife and I stopped in for a quick dinner last week. Everything is fried, and it all tastes the same. I couldn't tell the difference among the shrimp, scallops and clams. Onion rings too. Fabulous ice cream treats. Hamburgers and sandwiches are very average.

While there is an eat in facility, it is the ice cream is the reason that we visit this location. Both soft serve, and hard ice creams are available. IT offer a wide variety to choose from. "Food" is available in the restaurant.

I can walk to Bubbling Brook and often do. It is very much like a 1896 New England seafood shack, but the emphasis is definitely ice cream. There is a sit down restaurant and food can also be ordered to go. The ice cream windows are outside. There are lots of picnic tables outside under a huge oak near a... More

It's still the same, but the prices are very high. $3.60 for a small soft-serve cone is too much. It's an OK destination for a bike ride or an evening drive, but be prepared to shell out some cash.

13 years of patronage and finding more disappointment than not. Food quality falling fast, prices not for the meek and ice cream portions for the prices disappointing... So sad...
