I remember coming here as a kid and this is where all of the baseball teams would come after the nightly games. The ice cream still hasn't changed and consistently remains to be the best soft serve in town. Make sure to request cherry dip on top of your ice cream!

We were out exploring the local area and stumbled onto the Dairy Train...They had great tasting ice cream...I got the kiddie cone, and it was HUGE and tasted so good! Glad I didn't order a larger one, I would have never been able to eat it! :) it was yummy!!

If you are looking for ice cream in Rockport, this is definitely the place to go. Our weekends would not be complete without a visit to Dairy Train. There is a wide variety of flavors and choices. The portions are ENORMOUS. Opt for the " kiddy" size. Our kids love it and so do we!

Once a year, when it feels like summer, I make a trip to the Dairy Train. I went early in June this year and was not disappointed. They have a great selection of flavors (hard and soft) and the service was great. They even have mistakes that you can purchase for your dog which is a cute idea. I got... More

The Dairy Train in Rockport, and its sister company Ro's Harbor Scoops in Gloucester, have a huge selection of different, high quality ice cream and frozen yoghurt. There literally is a flavor for everyone. I am particularly crazy about the soft serve twist (chocolate and vanilla), which is the best I ever had. Absolutely delicious! Ro and her staff are...
