We wanted homemade frozen custard for dessert & we were delighted with the delicious flavor of the day that we chose. They have a wide variety of flavors--hard to choose! It is not cheap, but where is any good home made ice cream inexpensive? The shaded outdoor seating was a welcome break from the hot sun. Would definitely go there... More

Nice place! Plenty of variety, most importantly ice cream was delicious. Little snafu ordering and getting a single scoop of vanilla took forever. But will definitely go back!

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
