We stopped after visiting the Peabody Essex Museum and weren't disappointed. There were numerous patrons on a chilly November afternoon, which obviously bodes well. And, we weren't disappointed. The selection was very good and we tried before making our final choices. I had the peanut butter chocolate and think it was one of the best versions thereof that I've ever... More

This was probably the best ice cream I have ever had. Period. Such amazing inventive ice creams. I only spent 2 days in the Salem/Peabody area and I went both days.

Good size portions. Really nice help. They even let my young son change his when he didn't like the flavor he picked. Huge selection.

I have been going here for years and love it. It is a family place, owned by a local family who are very involved and generous in the community. The portions are huge - anything with chocolate chips is amazing, the chunks of chocolate are huge! Love the chocolate peanut butter!

I have been going to Treadwell my whole life. Always excellent. Scoops are huge. Baby is enough for 2 people. Sundaes are enormous. Great flavor selection and good service. Just a word to the wise, the person who takes your order, takes the whole order for all persons in your group. Also, the line can get very long in the... More

Authentic yogurts and ice creams. Peppermint, coffee, moose tracks, and heath were some of the most notable flavors. For those nor from the northeast, the frappes are a yogurt or ice cream shake, not a coffee milk shaken like you'd find in Greece. Could use a little more seating, butget to tread wells .

Treadwell’s is one of my favorite ice cream stands. It offers the usual cones, cups, sundaes, splits, frappes, and floats plus a few items like popcorn, hot dogs and coffee, although I’ve never ventured to the non-dairy section of the menu. The ice cream is rich and creamy and is available in a large number of flavors, a few of... More

I think the people giving positive reviews of Treadwell's must be locals who haven't been to too many other ice cream stands north of Boston. I mean, the ice cream was good, but I wouldn't call it excellent. The fact that it's made on site is definitely a plus, but that is pretty standard in New England. In my opinion,... More

There isn't a thing not to love about Treadwell's in Salem, MA. Open all year long, ice cream lovers come from all over (and I mean all over...I live in Connecticut) to partake in this lusciously, sinful delight. If you can remember those flavorful malts we used to get at the local soda fountain down the street in the ole’... More
