“Wow soft ice cream!!!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

We took friends for dessert yesterday. They asked if we were sure we wanted to drive 35 minutes for icecream.
We we not disappointed. The best soft serve ever.
15 flavors....4 twists...The most creamy dense smooth soft icecream ever. I had lime cream twist. Yummy. My wife was dying to try the salted caramel. Her new favorite.

If you are near Albany, take the run up the Northway to Queensbury. You'll be glad you did

“The best ice cream in all the world”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Martha's ice cream is by far the best! Marthas only sells soft serve homemade ice cream but there was no other category to list this under other than "restaurant". Their unique soft serve flavors (cotton candy, peanut butter, orange cream swirl, lime swirl....) change weekly and can be seen on their website monthly flavor menu. When driving by there is a giant rooster/chicken which is lit up at night, and it is a drive in ice cream style place from way back in time where you wait outside the window to place your order. The lines at 10 pm (they close at 11 pm) stretch to the curb but the service is friendly and somewhat speedy. It is worth the wait anyway. I have never seen the lines during the day, I have always visited at night so I cannot comment on that. The portions are HUGE... I get a kitty ($1.39) and it is big! The price is a throwback from earlier times and it is amazing the prices have not caught up to 2014. On your next trip to Lake George Area you must try Marthas, or you have not been to all the must see "experiences" in the area.

“Best soft serve you will find”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Been going here for many years. Last several years the place has regained what it had lost for many years while under different ownership. I have traveled all over and tried ice cream everywhere. This is as good as it gets. Tons of flavors. Must have.

“Best ice cream place ever!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

I've been coming here since I was a little kid and it still remains my favorite iceam cream. Love all the flavors, especially the orange/lime/rasberry creme twists. Perfect place to go after the Great Escape or the movies.

“Don't miss it !”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Not much to say outside of the fact that it's AMAZING! The ice cream is rich and dense, the portions are great (sometimes they are just insane... But at least you've got quite a lot for the price!), and for the peoples tired of vanilla/chocolate, Martha's has a ton of flavors that they swap on almost a daily basis, so there's always a lot of variety. They recently added salt caramel and it's better than just eating a standard salted caramel, it's one of my favorites flavors.

Outside of regular cones, everything from sundaes to flurry's is amazing, so this is definitely a place you don't want to miss during your next trip to Lake George!
