My husband and his family have gone to the Ice Cream Place every summer for 30 years. To even suggest we go elsewhere for ice cream is unheard of! Maybe it's nostalgic at this point but as an "outsider" and sugar connoisseur, I can confirm the ice cream is awesome. Hot Fudge is homemade and amazing!!

We go here at least once every year. It is the BEST! Not cheap but excellent. Can get crowded so be patient. The brownie sundae is terrific. A meal in itself. Terrific selection of flavors. Service is good. Make sure you tip the kids behind the counter! Seating outside or you can take your cone to go and do some... More

This place was our final stop on our trip to Block Island. We almost didn't go but had some time before the ferry left. Ice cream was delicious (if a little on the expensive side). Service was great, it took us forever to decide and the guys behind the counter were patiently waiting for us to make up our minds.... More

I was disappointed here with the ice ream - Every flavor I asked for, they didn't have so I had to settle. Ice cream was good enough but I would probably not come back here again

I was disappointed this was closed on our last visit at the end of September. They always have the greatest flavors and wonderful kids working here every summer.

Right off the main street. Very convenient for that after dinner desert or anytime desert. Good variety of rich, creamy ice cream. Nice quiet place to relax at the outdoor patio.

How often do you come across home made ice cream? This ice cream parlor has been here my entire life & we stop by for at least a cone every trip to the island! It's a good old fashion ice cream parlor, well no soda jerks or a counter but they have the classics then you go outside and eat... More

A hidden gem. Entrance is to the west of Finns market which is across from the ferry terminal. Homemade ice cream that is made on Block Island and is absolutely delicious! I had the mocha Heath flavor that is still making my mouth water!
