Amazing ice cream flavours and really wanted to try them all! Friendly staff, space outside to park and sit. Located just off the main street but you won't regret it!

Emack & Bolio continues its tradition of engaging the palette with its list of creative ice cream. Beyond the conventional vanilla, chocolate and mocha are a number of special flavors that are intriguing. Two flavors or sorbet and a non-sugar variety enhance their menu season after season. Hidden away from Main Street, E&B offers a secluded spot to enjoy your... More

Nice finish to our evening with very good ice cream. Waffle cone coated with chocolate and Heath made for a perfect pairing with a scoop of Espresso ice cream. My wife really enjoyed her scoop of moose tack as well. I understand I am on the Cape in a sweet nostalgic resort town but $12 for two scoops seems a... More

We visited just as they are gearing up for a new summer season - unfortunately they didn't have their excellent brownies, but we enjoyed some lovely ice cream - perfectly rich, creamy and loaded with flavor. Highly recommend this ice cream shop!

We thoroughly enjoyed the ice cream at Emack and Bolio's. It was creamy and full of flavor. My husband enjoyed the Beantown Buzz espresso ice cream so much that he said it might have been the best ice cream he has ever had. I had the Black Raspberry which was delicious. If only the name wasn't so hard to remember!

Have gone here every time we come. I like that one server takes care of each group individually. Cash only. Can be crowded. Seating is really outside. Do not expect to sit in. Only a few tables. The ice cream is yummy. I love the Salted Caramel chocolate covered pretzel. My daughter loves Grasshopper Pie (a mint cookie ice cream).... More

Cute place with not to miss ice cream. Three flavors tasted which all received rave reviews. They even had an iced beverage that a lactose free friend enjoyed. We also went to their shop in Well Fleet.

We arrived the day after Labor Day to enjoy minimal traffic and no lines which was reason enough to celebrate with creamy ice cream. Yummy! Ample parking and service was lovely - and patient when we couldn't decide what to choose. The dark chocolate ice cream was heavenly when topped with warm peanut butter sauce - we're still talking about... More
