Murphy's Eats & Treats
Ashland, Massachusetts

It's June and summer is in full swing. It's time for another season of Eat Up New England's Sizzlin' Summer Spots. Our first stop this summer is Murphy's Eats and Treats in Ashland, Massachusetts.

Murphy's is the place where everyone in town goes for ice cream on a warm summer day. Their ice cream window makes you feel like you're on the Cape. They serve all of the classics like cookie dough and moose tracks. Murphy's also sells soft serve, including unique flavors like orange creamsicle. 

Murphy's is also a good spot to quench your seafood craving. I enjoyed their clam strips plate, a large portion of clam strips over crinkle fries. Among their other seafood options are lobster rolls and a whole belly clam roll. They also offer burgers, hot dogs, salads. grilled cheese and kids meals.

After dinner and ice cream, check out Murphy's mini golf course. , , ,
