“Hot Spot for Ice Cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

This place blows away the nearby Ben & Jerry's. This is an Island institution. Friendly staff, mostly young women from Europe (like many of the businesses on the island). Families clad in shorts and flip flops line up here every night but the service is fast. Make sure you leave a tip!

“BI landmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is THE place for ice cream on the island. Always a long line in the evening and interior never changes. Great favors, homemade waffle cones, and the best homemade whipped cream.

“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Gained weight here, but great spot that has been around forever. Yoghurt mixes are wonderful. Homemade baked goods great, ESP when combined with ice cream.

“Great selection of ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We always come here for good cones and interesting flavors.
The line generally moves fast as the workers hustle.

“THE Place to Have Dessert on Block Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Expect a line on a summer evening. Many flavors, ample portions, and resort pricing are standard. The outdoor patio makes a great place to share your treat with family and friends. Highly recommend the Ice Cream Place as an after dinner or after beach stop for a frozen extravaganza.
