Stopped here after a day on the beach and it was very good. There was no line at 5:00 pm on a Thursday. The shop had a lot to offer, fudge and chocolate of all types. We had a hot fudge sundae and a small cone for about $12. I thought the price was a little on the high side,... More

Best ice cream ever- and such a great setting. I didn't get to try the candies but candy is great in general. Great experience

Great place to get ice cream, fudge, and chocolates! They have great original flavors for ice cream selection. There were less choices for fudge.

On the way home my daughter wanted a box of fudge to share with the ladies in her office and I needed a shot of espresso for the ride. The fudge with caramel and salt is very tasty. People seemed pleased with their ice cream cones walking out the door. Parking across the street makes it an easy location to... More

Stay in the line; enjoy the ice cream; savor the toffee and bear claws. Buy one for a friend, another for a quiet time and take another to eat right now!

Kilwin's is a much better ice cream choice than the Newport Creamery. The ice cream is richer and creamier. Good variety of choices. Good portions. Prices are reasonable. They offer a wide variety of sweats (chocolates and such) along with ice cream. Service was good. Location is ideal.

If you love ice cream, and even if you just like ice cream, this is one of their signature flavors and like nothing you've had before. That has now become MY signature flavor. My husband had the chocolate peanut butter and it was like a creamy Reese's peanut butter cup on a spoon. We stopped for fudge before leaving for... More

I had a salted caramel scoop on a cone and it was the most delicious ice cream I can recall having. I also got their caramel, coconut covered oreo to go and a mint chocolate covered oreo to go for my partner.. those were also super delicious.

We stopped in after some shopping and dinner. What a treat!! Waffle cones made on site as you walk in ... Sweet smell of chocolate... Fudge... Ice cream... Coffee... Heaven. My husband and daughter got ice cream (both raved about it), I got a fresh squeezed limenaid (so good squeezed fresh to order). We bought fudge, turtle pretzel rod, turtle... More
