“Save the Smuggler!”
Review of Ice Cream Smuggler

Ice Cream Smuggler
Ranked #2 of 8 Dessert in Dennis

Reviewed 25 September 2017 via mobile

The sign along Route 6A in Dennis caught our eye--homemade ice cream. Who could refuse that?
On a beautiful sunny day, an inviting temptation that did not disappoint. Noticing the window sign to "Save the Smuggler," we asked what we were saving to be told by the friendly owner that his landlady was addicting him to rent to another ice cream parlor. <Horrors!!!>
Sampling the chocolate ice creams, we opted for a double scoop, the chocolate peanut butter--a delicious blend of both- and chocolate chocolate chip, made from the original shop owner's recipe. My wife thought it could have used more chocolate, but then she likes deep, rich cocoa flavor. Nonetheless, it was a generous portion of refreshing, good homemade ice cream. Staff is friendly, place is clean, and if they're still there next year, we'll be back for another. Let's hope they can Save the Smuggler!

Ice Cream Smuggler was one of the Top Ten Ice cream Shops on the Cape as Identified in the Cape Cod Times and our last of the ten to visit. The Smuggler is on rte. 6A and easy to find. There is plenty of parking as well as seating both in and outside. You enter Smuggler's from the back and you walk into a very clean shop with the homemade ice cream on display in 2 counters as you wait in line to order. There is a separate sitting area with 5-6 tables inside with air conditioning.
I had 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream in a waffle cone and it was creamy and very tasty. The large cone appeared to be store bought rather than homemade. My husband had a hot fudge sundae with coffee ice cream, whipped cream, cherries and extra hot fudge. The coffee ice cream was very good and to his surprise the hot chocolate was on the bottom as well as on top of the ice cream and the nuts were hidden under the whipped cream. The service was very good. The ice cream shop business was brisk and we went at 1:30pm so I can only imagine they have a line at night.
Great place!

Amazing, what a choice!! Queuing was worth it as it allowed you time to decide. Just one scoop is sufficient as portions are unbelievable. Not really enough seating inside but there is a bit more outside.
Such a shame this place is having to close at the end of the season :-(. So get there quickly otherwise you'll miss out on a great find.

We have been coming to the Ice Cream Smuggler for many years and the ice cream is unmatched! Delicious, homemade and rich. The ice cream baristas are always super friendly no matter how busy they are. On our last visit, they saw we were taking a family photo outside by the signature large rock in their parking lot and brought out a vanilla ice cream cone for my toddler. She was so excited. Can not say enough about the quality of ice cream or the people <3.
