A great stop for good ice cream. In summer there are likely long lines, and the prices can be a bit of a shock! Check the Carousel Ice Cream store across Circuit ave. Same great taste and maybe shorter lines

Having spent the day biking around the Vineyard, we were looking for ice cream before catching the ferry. My single scoop chocolate cone was terrible. Really disappointing. Threw it away. Save yourself the five bucks.

my only complaint about this ice cream parlor is - it doesn't open until 12:00 noon. I love pumpkin ice cream - the highlighted flavor of the week when I was there. The pumpkin was great, as was the coconut, vanilla and pistachio. Make sure you save room - at least a couple of times a week to stop at... More

For the price of a single cone, more than $5.00, you would expect a little creamier and more flavorful ice cream. Coming from Cape Cod with local ice cream that is less expensive for a single scoop with way more flavor, this was a little disappointing

We stopped in after a stroll thru the streets of Oak Bluffs. It was delicious and refreshing. They serve decent size portions for the price. They had a lot of creative flavor options.

Mad Martha's is such a mainstay of MV, it's worth at least one visit. The ice cream is good, not extraordinary but definitely makes the kids (and adults) happy!

Home made ice cream is the best. Bit pricey, but worth it. Also has coffee and sandwiches. Favorite is the raspberry yogurt.
