Best Ice Cream Ever!

Great Ice Cream in many flavors as well as yogurt. You can eat there and bring some home. My favorite - Kailua Chocolate Chip.

The only thing that was OK about my visit here was the ice cream - it was actually pretty decent, but definitely not the best I've had. I was very put off by how badly the man there was treating his female helper. He was constantly at her throat about everything, and he belittled her. She was very nice to... More

Annabelle's is by far the best ice cream we have ever had. Had it first in Portsmouth and then found their ice cream again at a little ice cream shop when we in Denmark, Maine at Stage Stop Ice Cream. We now look for it everywhere - but it's not easy to find - so we really appreciate it when... More

We stopped on the way back to Rhode Island from the white mountains. I had the peanut butter cup and it was really good. Not too sweet or heavy. The price is reasonable for homemade ice cream. I'm amused by people who think 3 or 4 dollars is a lot for a good dish of ice cream. It's expensive to... More

We recently visited Annabelle's on the recommendation of friends who live in the Portsmouth area and were rewarded with some of the best tasting ice creams we've had in ages. The shop was very clean and the staff friendly and very helpful when we wanted to taste a couple of flavors to decide what we wanted. I had the very... More

Great little place, recommended by locals, cash only so we had to go back in am as we had no cash with us at night but worth it. Great ice cream with one size, so no massive portions which is nice and homemade hot fudge, which makes a huge difference!

Initially disheartened by all the tubs being covered and hence non-visible, we quickly became disarmed as we sampled a few flavors. Although we were trying to watch the calories and opt for Fro-yo we yielded when we tasted the Expresso Coffee and the Chocolate Mint Chip. Save your calories elsewhere.

Delicious home-made ice cream. We live on the North Fork of Long Island near the best (in not just our view) ice cream parlor on the island....Magic Fountain. Annebelle's is right up there with, as we like to call it, Magic. I enjoyed their pistachio and my husband had vanilla maple, which was also very good.

The ice cream was excellent. The service person was not very friendly or helpful. She was almost rude to us.

It is small place which is little hard to locate but serves decent quality ice cream. We ordered Pirates treasure. It was Rum and Raisins based ice cream which was good. Though I would have liked little bit more of Rum :) The serving size was very decent and we had a great time finishing off the ice cream.
