“Excellent Ice Cream and Waffle Cones!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

The title says it all. Made a return trip here after the first night because it was so good! Ice cream was very good, but I think the waffle cones may even top the ice cream. Did not buy any of the homemade candy or fudge, but it looked very good as well.

“Excellent Fudge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

We tried samples of their fudge and ended up buying 1.5 pounds! Very flavorful and creamy with a good assortment of classic flavors.

“Sticky, sticker-shock!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Great scoop of chocolate peanut butter ice-cream. We both loved our choices, but were a little shocked at the price. Over $7(almost 8!) for 2 of the smallest one scoops they had. I think she had told me that it was the kiddie cone. Thank goodness we didn't have the 4 kiddies with us or we would have been washing dishes! LOL

Great ice-cream, but be ready for the sticker shock. Also, it seemed to be really 'melty'. We did a lot of licking the sides.

I would recommend, but only as a really special treat…and stay inside the air-conditioning while you eat it! Enjoy.

“toasted coconut ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

After leaving a fabulous show at the Music Hall walked up Congress St. It was 9:55 when we entered Kilwins, we asked when they closed. The young man answered " right after we serve you some of best ice cream you will have ever eaten. 3 different dishes of delicious flavors. We left smiling at 10:05, as another customer came thru their door. The sign on the door said, on Tuesday, they close at ten. Great customer service and great ice cream which was totally gone just as we reached our for the one hour drive home. Thanks Kilwins

“Must go everytime I am in Portsmouth!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

I have been many times and never disappointed! Since the first time, have gone back with friends and family so they all know how good it is. Homemade waffle cones are delicious and the ice cream has real stuff in it!
