This is a good place to get an ice cream or made to order dinner. It is an ice cream stand so keep that in mind. I've had the Fish and Fries and was pleasantly surprised as to how good it was. My favorite is their banana split, traditional banana split, great ice cream and plenty of it with all... More

I got their fishermen's platter which came with fried whole belly clams, scallops and haddock. It also came with French fries and onion rings. Unfortunately, all the fried food was soggy and undercooked. Ate a little and decided to just bring the rest home and eat it for leftovers hoping it would cook up better in the oven. My husband...

Axels just open for the season and my grandson & I just stopped in. It is a beautiful day and Axels was crowded, so it took a while to get served. Service was quick after we got to the windows. On beautiful, sunny & warm days and especially on the weekends expect service to take a while. The Ice cream... More

It is an outside picnic table place. No bathroom so make sure the kids go before you stop here. Also it is a cash only business. I like to go here for Fried Clams and ice cream. The ice cream is great and if you ask they'll give you a small cup with a dog biscuit for you little buddy... More

Our kids love the burgers and fries here just as much as the ice cream! Great summer place. Give it a try.

We have been going to Axel's for years and love it. Their fish fry is exceptional. My husband gets the clams, I get the scallops, and our daughter can't live without the fish and chips. Of course, the ice cream is phenomenal. My daughter used to work summers here, and she can attest to the cleanliness and care that is... More

We visit Axel's frequently as a family. I tend to stick with the frozen yogurt option of purple cow. My favorite! They have hard and soft serve. The hard ice cream is great - the soft is just the typical soft serve. They have lots of flavors for the hard ice cream. They also have a great selection food. Burgers,... More

Didn't have a very good experience with Axel's Memorial Day weekend as the staff was not on the ball. Ordered an Axel's special a Tuna Melt but what came out initially was nothing as the clerk neglected to put the tuna melt on the slip and all that came at the call window was a pulled pork sandwich and Sweet...
