This is a little gem in Carlisle. Both their ice cream and custard were great, although I preferred the ice cream. I got a scoop of caramel cheesecake ice cream and it was super creamy and not too sweet. The chocolate custard with cookie dough was great too but I would have enjoyed it more if the serving portion wasn't... More

I thought the ice cream was good but pricey for the portions that they give you. Girlfriend loved it

They have the greatest soft serve vanilla custard in the planet! I was also lucky enough to have the fresh native peaches offered to make a stellar peach sundae to die for.

Massey's has been in business since I can remember and I am 60 years old. While they only serve ice cream products, it is a hit for the locals. Love their shakes, sundae's, floats and banana splits. Great prices and located in a nice part of town, near Dickinson College.

Went to Massey's for an ice cream on a hot day when we were visiting Carlisle during the Chrysler show! It was terrific! Hand dipped flavors change daily and included fun flavors in addition to the regulars (vanilla and chocolate). I tried the maple bacon and it was great! They also had gluten free cones - a real treat for... More

Great place to go if you have a hankering for a very good milkshake. The ice cream is right up there too. Can't go wrong by stopping at Massey's for a treat.

Finished dinner early and decided to stop by Massey's for dessert. Caught it at just the right time; no waiting, which is very unusual. Ordered our usual, an Artic Mount and a Sundie. The selection of hand dipped custard favors is overwhelming. You always get large scoops and lots of topping. Best custard and value in the area. A 'Must... More

Don't leave Carlisle before stopping at Massey's Frozen Custard! I adore their tall, thick malted milk shakes. To die for! Their sundaes are excellent as well, but can't compare to the milkshakes. The shakes are so big that you can savor them for an hour and won't be hungry again for hours! It's a popular place with lots of parking... More
