I have been going to Treadwell's for many years now (it is a 2.5 hr drive). Of course, there are other reasons for driving up to Salem/Peabody, but Treadwell's has been one of my places-to-go-to whenever I'm in the neighborhood.

I traveled from the South Shore to the North Shore to try this ice cream my family raves about. Well I am impressed, the pistachio was so creamy and had the right amount of nuts. We had a ice cream sundae and a chocolate, chocolate shake. Everything was totally awesome. I also grabbed a raspberry lime Rickey for the trip... More

Treadwells is a must stop whenever we are in the north Shore. I always get the cookie dough on a waffle cone and I am always left satisfied!

What a way to end the day. We will be back before leaving the area. Thank you for being so consistent. NOTE. The radio ratings bullets would not... More

We love this place! The ice cream and sherbets are fantastic! The portion sizes are bit huge, but we are willing to overlook that for the flavor. We walked there, so we didn't feel so guilty. We are also very happy that they are open year 'round.
