Brings Back Childhood Memories

Tucked away in a small strip mall down from the Bellevue Mansions is this return to the 50s & 60's...countertops and all (jueboxes would be a great addition!)....standard fare choices...large portions...usually packed at lunch hour whereas between that time & dinner - virtually empty

Newport has numerous lovely food options. Unfortunately, this is not one of them. After spending several days in Newport, we happened upon Newport Creamery. As one who wants to patronize local establishments when possible, my family and I were intrigued and decided to give it a try. While service was friendly and efficient, the food was nearly inedible. I had... More

There is nothing special NC ice cream. The portions are really small. The ice cream is so-so. It lacks richness and creaminess. Kilwin has much better ice cream so walk a few blocks as it will be worth it.

Being locals, we've grown up with Newport Creamery. This location is very busy in the summer months. Ice Cream and infamous Awful Awfuls are great. The food? Not so much. The restaurant could use a good cleaning and some renovation. Best bet is the takeout window for frozen treats after eating at one of the many great Newport eateries in... More

My friend and I placed separate orders for the milkshake. After my friend paid, she just threw away the receipts immediately right next to the trash can and walked back to the car. The guy then yelled and said, "you didn't pay!" Seriously?? This happened 1 minute ago, and you forgot the whole transaction event? She threw away the receipts,... More

We had Turkey Club and Bacon Cheeseburger. Turkey first; White bread toast (4 or 5 choices) was toasted lightly and hot. Lettuce was cold and crisp, tomatoes were as good as they are in May in NE. Bacon was cooked well, evenly, crisp without being hard. Turkey was very good. Fries were DELICIOUS! The Bacon cheese burger was great! Bacon,... More

We were told to come here for the BOGO "Awful Awful" night while on our honeymoon. They were awesome and definitely did not disappoint.
