We traveled to Newport RI, ate at Matunuck Oyster Bar and then saved room for a great ice cream!! The creamyest ice cream around, bring cash, no credit cards. You won't be disappointed.

There is not a whole lot to do in Salem -- lots of woods and such but drive by this place on a weekend evening, and you would think it's the capitol of the CT (and maybe it should be) ! Everything about this place is awesome -- not the least of which the menu. Every manner of fresh, local,... More

They have so many delicious sounding flavors that it is difficult to choose. However, they have a very generous Sampler where you can choose 3 different ice cream flavors and you get 3 ounces of each flavor. The 3 flavors I chose were all good, but the Salted Caramel was my favorite!

Enjoyed a nice cold treat on a warm summer evening with family. The ice cream options are too numerous to recall but there were all the usual plus some interesting ones like basil, purple sable, etc. Ice cream was really good, maybe not the best I've ever had but up there. Another plus is the deliberate exclusion of artificial flavors,... More

This is the best ice cream we have ever had. I don't need to say more. Cow Tracks is my favorite. Sometimes a line but worth the wait and the line moves fast.
