The entrance is hidden, around the back. But it is worth finding. This homemade ice cream gives favorites like Ben and Jerry's a run for their money!

Family of 11 enjoyed reasonably priced ice cream treat. Ice cream was creamy and not airy. Service was quick and friendly. Make the trip off the beaten path for this gem.

We stood in the outside line with the worn out sign of flavors to peruse. My daughter ordered lemon sorbet and the teenage employee rudely yelled mango only. My daughter switched to ice cream and was rudely cut off before she could finish. Both my husband and myself were barked at for our flavor choice then our cups were slammed... More

Anabelle's is a bit off the beaten path in Portsmouth but it is really worth finding. I like their flavors and you can sit inside in A/C if you would like. One nice touch is that ice water is available for customers.

After reading many reviews, I made it a priority to come and visit this ice cream shop. I had Maine Rocky Coast and it was delicious. Small place but definitely worth a visit!

I normally like lowfat frozen yogurt so when I have REAL ice cream it feels fatty and thick. I went twice to Annabelle's and loved the flavors I got (Mocha Mud Pie and Triple Chocolate). Price was reasonable and the portion size was perfect.

Well the ice cream is homemade, but not in the store they have gotten so big that they have to make it off site. But that does not change the quality of the ice cream. We sampled a few, and came down to 2 kinds, so we each had a scoop of each flavor.

Even though it was hopping on a summer evening, servers were on top of their game! Fun choices of flavors in a nice variety. Fun spot to walk and people watch although there is some limited seating.

We love visiting Portsmouth and have visited often over the years. Anabelle's is a comfortable spot by the water. I was confused with the addition of hot dogs to the menu this time. Anyway, we love our coffee ice cream. We love Halo Farm in Princeton, NJ which is our measure for any ice cream we enjoy. Unfortunately, while we... More
