“The Line Goes Around The Block”

Nantucket Ice Cream & Juice Guys
Price range: $5 - $10
Description: A favorite of Locals and Visitors alike! Come get a taste of the summer at Nantucket Ice Cream (open mid-May to mid-October). As the original home of Nantucket Nectars, we offer the island's best smoothies, in addition to gourmet ice cream, homemade cookies, snacks, cold drinks, coffee, hot dogs and take away breakfast. We are the closest stop to the Hy-Line Ferry and literally located ON the harbor! Come grab a cone and walk the docks while looking at the some of the world's most beautiful yachts... We love our office and we know you will too!

“The Line Goes Around The Block”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Even so it moves fast. There are two doors, either seems to be an entrance so choose one. There is no inside seating so it's grab and go. Send your two strongest clearest thinking people inside. Let them sort it out. Have a good idea what you want and be ready to blurt it out. Once you've made your haul and are outside eating the really fabulous (locally named) concoctions you can laugh at the "rookies" jumping from one line to the next thinking it will get them inside any faster.

“A Nantucket tradition”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

A definite must any time you are in Nantucket.
The ice cream is delicious with always changing interesting flavors
and the waffle cones are the best we have tried anywhere!
Long slow moving lines are the only minor complaint.

A fun place to return to year after year, ice cream cones eaten by the water on a hot day
takes me back to childhood.

"Blueberry Ice Cream" This is great ice cream in a classic blueberry flavor with the ambience of the wharf to go along with it

“Ok smoothie for the boardwalk!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Decent if not average smoothie! Honestly I was expecting a little more from the "original" Nantucket nectars spot. I heard the ice cream is good but I didn't try it. Average service from summering teens on a part time wage.

“Cool Down”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Nice way to cool down from a hot day walking the island! A bit on the high side in price. Plenty to chose from and the portions I received were big! Well worth the $$. Plus the view is nice if you just want to relax!
