5 kids and 4 adults shared 5 kid-sized scoops, couldn't finish the 5th. We had the Sea Salt Caramel (really good, must try), Green Tea with Mint (Second favorite but didn't taste the green tea, it was like a really good mint ice cream), Black Raspberry Chip, Chocolate (average), Peanut Butter Crunch (really good, if you like PB). Best was... More

Generous helpings of delish, "homemade" ice cream (double scoops for the price of one). The staff is friendly and efficient and patient for those of us who like to taste test. The barrage of candy options was mindboggling---never saw so many varieties of taffy in my life. Yum.

Really yummy and creative flavors along with a big candy counter in case that isn't enough sugar! ;-)

All natural, hand made. Very nice selection, all delicious. I had a root beer float with vanilla ice cream, outstanding. Reasonably priced as well.

Nice homemade ice cream. Visited based on recommendation of friend. A bit expensive, but serving size is good. We skipped lunch and went for the peanut butter cookie dough.

On a island full of ice cream, this is the best. Great Flavors (peanut butter crunch, coconut were my favorites) plus good ones for kids. They also have shaved ice which is a favorite of my daughter. Eat quickly because this smooth, natural ice cream does melt quickly.

Our 11 old twins had ice cream here every night after dinner.. Pricey but there are no deals in Edgartown. Ice cream was tasty with awesome service. The students had a tip box that marked tuition... CUTE!!!

Probably the best ice cream on the island. Kinda hard to find on Dock st. across from the docks, but when you do, it's delicious......ice cream is all handmade with both average run of the mill flavors and a selection of eclectic flavors as well. I had the sea salt caramel truffle, and it was out of this world. Also... More

We tried a few different places for ice cream in Edgartown last week and this ice cream seemed the most homemade. We had some cookie dough and fudge mixture and it was delicious. We would have gone back again but they weren't open during the first part of the week.

Great place for a pick-me-up in Edgartown. Ice cream was delicious with some unique flavors but we stuck to the classics which they did well: root beer float and chocolate/chocolate chip.

The Scoop Shack is a Mom and Pop ice cream shop located in Edgartown, MA on the beautiful island of Martha's Vineyard. Our Homemade ice cream is made from the finest ingredients in small batches right here in our shop. After years of culinary training and stints in two Michelin star restaurants I decided to try and make the best ice cream I had ever tasted. I truly believe that we have done that, and I hope that you do too.
