I've been going here with my family since I was about 4. I always had frozen pudding and grandma had ginger. We'd share a bite with each other. After leaving Provincetown that morning, we stopped by for an ice cream lunch. The owner and worker were wonderfully helpful, and we got to talking. The owner was a student of mine when he was in 8th grade in Hyannis. Small world. You can't go wrong with their ice cream as it's as good as I remember, but I'd recommend bringing a cooler so you can take some of it home with you. That was my one regret; we didn't have a cooler, and it would have melted by the time we got home which was over an hour away.

I went the weekend after Labor Day. It was open; however they only sold prepacked ice cream. You could get three sizes, one smaller than a pint, the other two larger. Everything was served in containers and they would not make milkshakes or put the ice cream on a cone. I've heard great things about Four Seas, but the service was not friendly and the offerings were so narrow that they would be better off simply closing Labor Day and not being open during the winter.

Great variety of flavors and high-quality ice cream! This is a must-stop if you are nearby. My girlfriend is not a big ice cream eater normally, but she loved it!

was what my great grandmother taught me. So we hit up Four Seas before dinner as they close early this time of year. And they only serve prepackaged ice cream, so the "small" is already in a plastic cup. Tastes as good as ever, but the options are fewer by mid September

Was not in a mood for an ice cream. But as soon as you eat your first spoonful, you know it’s different from anything you’ve had before.

My wife couldn’t resist it either. Soft and light and delicious.
