“Generous Portions”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

J.P. Licks is centrally located around many restaurants which makes it a great place to go for dessert. The ice cream is very good. However, there are no tables to sit and enjoy the delicious treat. It does have what they call an "ice cream bar," by the front window, that accommodates about 4 to 6 people.

“Not worth the price!”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

JP Licks has very good ice cream but it is not worth the price. There are so many great ice cream places all over Cape Cod and they are only seasonal. These places manage to serve great ice cream for 1/3 of the price JP Licks charges and still make a profit. How does JP Licks get away with it? I can tell you -there is really no competition in the area. Therefore, the lines are long with people who have no other option other than buying half gallons of ice cream and scooping it at home.
