Most any one who has had their ice cream would agree it ranks some of the best anywhere. Great selection of flavors The amount is generous.Not unusual for folks who live in Boston to take a drive North just for their ice cream.

The ice cream at Hodgie's is "THE BEST". Everything is homemade and all of the help, as well as the owner, always greet everyone with a smile. Last summer, when enjoying a visit from our grandchildren, our 7-year-old granddaughter said, "Grammie...I can read that sign on your kitchen counter. It says, 'Life is short...eat dessert first.'" I said to her,... More

The Hodgies experience is just that....An EXPERIENCE, most fun when treating the kids to the Hodgies 13 scooper and each of the kids had their own spoon to dig into it. Really good ice cream at a great value.

All ice home made on premises. Some unique flavors. Sizes are deceivingly huge! Never had a bad flavor or experience here!

We were in the area geocaching and saw this nostalgic roadside snack bar. We talked with a few patrons in the parking lot and decided on their recommendations that we should try it. I had the sausage roll and it was fine. Fun location that was being visited by many locals that were known by name. Nice throwback experience.

I have been going to hoagies since I was a baby. They offer amazing homemade ice cream in huge proportions !!! A kiddie is too much for a 200 lb man to eat.

This place is always packed on a hot sunny day. I just don't see the attraction. The ice cream is just average and the prices are also average. People come from all over but again I would not drive out of my way to go here.

Hoagie's is fine if you have a cast iron stomach, but it does not do great things for my digestive system.

Stopped on our way back from the beach. We have family/friends that rave about this place so we stopped in to grab ice cream. Yes the portions are huge, really ridiculously huge. But, the prices are high too. We didn't see anyone getting anything larger than a 1/4 Kiddie. The 4 of us each got a different flavor, they were... More
