Frosty Freez serves only the BEST soft-serve real ice cream from Garelick Farms, and we offer 18 flavors of awesome hard ice cream from different vendors (Hershey's, Gifford's and Bliss Dairy, we picked our favorites!) We serve Only8 Frozen Yogurt, which is a non-fat, low-sugar treat that is safe for most diabetics and people with lactose intolerance, and we also carry sugar-free and dairy-free options. We're known for our fast, friendly service and reasonable prices, we keep the place clean as a whistle, and we care about our community.

Even the doggy dish is delicious!

I love Frosty Freez and my dog does too! They offer tons of flavors and the best soft serve I have ever had. They even have a doggy dish for your pup with a bone on top. The line gets long but moves quickly and the staff is always friendly.

I came here after work to get an quick sundae and experienced the worst customer service ever, the cashier took my order and quoted me a price and then when I got ready to pay he changed and told me and I quote, "well I lied too bad" I was so upset I just paid and vowed to never return... More

An out door only service ice cream serving locally made goodies. They have both soft and hard ice cream, fraps (milk shakes to the uninitiated), sundaes, and a wide variety of toppings and dips. They have a parking lot but it is easier to park next door as it provides a light if not turning right out of the lot.... More

This is one of the last of it's kind- an ice cream stand. It harkens back to a simpler time in our country. They have all types of offerings from hard ice cream to soft serve to yogurt. It is a great place to enjoy ice cream with your friends or family. I can't say enough about this place. Go!

We have driven by this ice cream place and there are always long lines and after years we finally stopped for ice cream. Don't bother! Nothing special , just whipped air and ice cream. Very disappointing. And not very tasty.

My girlfriend and I came here over the weekend for our first ice cream of the season. I love the fact that they have doggie ice cream dishes which is a small bit of vanilla soft serve with a dog biscuit in the middle. They are $1.50 each. We brought out dogs and they love the ice cream treats. I... More

This is a great family place with delicious soft serve ice cream! I love the coffee soft serve and my wife loves the Only 8. We used to live in Portsmouth and stopped in a couple of times a week. Now that we live in Saunderstown we still make the trip across the bridges because it's so good! When our... More

The first true sign of spring......the annual tradition of Frosty Freeze grand opening goes on....so worth the wait! Neither rain, snow or cold could keep us away. There is no other hot fudge sundae that compares. My son loves the play dough ice cream. Couldn't imagine a summer without Frosty Freeze.
