Great sundaes

Came here in the evening for dessert. The icecream isn't particularly cheap but it sure does taste amazing. Freshly made waffle cones, a great variety of flavours, and the sundaes with whipped cream and hot caramel are amazing. The staff are great and will let you taste test anything, and are... read more

No place to sit for one.. They had about 6 different flavored ice creams.. I got plain vanilla and it was probably the worst ice cream I ever had.. Tasted like nothing!! I got peanut butter sauce on top and they hardly put any on! My boyfriend asked for more and they gave him a small cup of some and... More

A tasty treat at gourmet prices. No bathroom or place to sit. Staff nice. One of the freezers was broken so less choice of flavors. No soft serve. Paid $10.00 for 2 small cups.

We agree! We've been working with the city and state to get approval for seating, but it has been tough! Thanks for coming in and happy to hear you enjoyed your sundae! More

We enjoyed our visit to the Screamery. There was one employee who managed our order and others, pleasantly and efficiently. Their flavors were reduced due to a broken freezer, but there was still plenty of a selection for us.

Only offers about 20 flavors. The staff is not very happy about their job. They do not make their own ice cream. Absolutely nothing special as I have come to expect from ice cream establishment in this area. Plus it's kinda expensive for the size of the portions. The worker even asked if I wanted to leave a tip!! Just... More

I had a cup of their lemon sorbet. It was creamy and refreshing. Just the thing I needed to keep me sight-seeing on a hot day in Salem.

I had the cake batter ice cream and man was it delicious! They carried such creative flavors like ginger and even salted caramel chocolate pretzel. The staff was especially friendly and the name of the parlor was very creative in an area that was "haunted by witches."

We like our ice cream, and this place has some wonderful, creative flavors, like pistachio brittle, salted caramel, and graham cracker. The ice cream was also very creamy and rich. We came here twice for dessert, and btw, it's just down the street from Turner's, which has the best seafood.

The name of this place was what made me stop in, and I'm not even a big ice cream person. Ice cream was really good and decently priced. Good location in the heart of Salem. Definitely going back next year!

this place had very good ice cream, friendly staff and they took credit cards. It was a nice place to stop after being on a tour of Salem, to cool off
