Homemade hot fudge, whipped cream and baked goods, no need to say anything more. Love the Walking Cone. Delicious

The Ice Cream Place has been serving up wonderful ice-cream for at least as long as I've been going to Block Island (25-30 years.) Other ice-cream shops have opened on BI, but this is the place for us. The line is usually very long, but the staff is so hard-working, pleasant, and efficient that it moves quickly!

We have been going to the Ice Cream Place on Block Island for over 30 years. Located in the lower level (the basement) on a back street, the Ice Cream Place may seem hard to find at first. Look for the lovely patio with tables and chairs and the beautiful shade trees covered in twinkle lights. At the end of... More

I'm not quite sure what the rave is about this place. Sure the brownies and waffle cones are hand made but the ice cream is just Turkey Hill. A few steps across the street and you'll find homemade ice cream!!!

Nothing to say beyond, "Not to be missed, if on Block Island"! This cute hide-away has simply the best ice- cream and sundae choices. It's the first place I head whenever I am on Block Island.

This is the true ice cream shop of the island. The brownie sundae is so good. Everything is home made, including their deliciously, chocolatey brownies. The ice cream at Rebecca's tastes fake and why go to Ben & Jerry's when the Ice Cream Place is here?

Great flavors, and very tasty! Having visited in September, the best part was no long lines! Only disappointment was the soft serve machine was closed for the season, but the regular ice cream was very good with lots of flavors to choose from.

Not home made ice cream... Turkey Hill brand. Was hoping for better, based on the top 10 rating on TripAdvisor.

Bring your wallet! The Ice Cream Place is not cheap - but it is the best on B.I. The Ice Cream Place has been in business as long as I can remember (at least back to 1986), and it's because they have a lot of choices and everything is really good. Ever had ginger ice cream? Try something new! Try... More
