Very nice scoops. Served by kids who didn't seem terribly into it but they did their job. Not a great place to eat in so take it to the shore with you.

a small location with sandwiches that are really top quality,quick service,nice servers,good ownership that takes care of the needs of the customer in every way. Very clean. It is up a few stairs to get to the front door. Some tables. Good spot to get...,food to go if you are going to a beach which is just down the road or to the large park area which is just a few miles up the road. You can also get the Jamestown ferry which is about 5 short miles away and it goes to Newport,RI..a nice spotMore

Douglas & I greatly enjoyed eating at Scoops. It is a warm, friendly restaurant with lots of nice, old pictures on the walls of Jamestown in early days. The waitress was very polite & the food was great. Our only regret is that we did...not find out about Scoops early enough in our visit to Jamestown, R. I. We would have eaten more meals there. ~Cynthia S.~More

Its worth it to take some time away from Newport and explore quieter Jamestown. After you explore - finish up with an ice cream from Island Scoop right on the wharf. No big crowds. Great patio area on the water.

Stopped here on our way back to our house from the beach. The two women behind the counter were both warm and helpful in making our decision. The two flavors we decided on were salted caramel chocolate pretzel and the blackberry chocolate chip. Both of...them were divine! It’s too bad we came here on the last night of our trip (or a good thing for our waste lines!). Although it’s not on a pier or in the heart of downtown, I would highly recommend a pit stop in here for a good scoop of ice cream on a nice day.More

There isn't any view here but the food and service are great. It's open for breakfast and lunch and also offer a variety of ice cream. They don't skimp on the amount of food, large portions. Some nice kid friendly menu choices are also part...of their menu. Definitely a nice pit stop.More

Jamestown is just one of those lovely towns that gets missed due to its proximity to Newport. Island Scoop's ice cream is just great and a nice variety of flavors. Pricing and sizes are more than fair. Best to enjoy while looking over the harbor...to Aquidneck Island.More

Ice cream very good and prices right. Better off getting a large cup that is .50 more than the small and twice the size.

We have visited on several occasions and have always had a good experience. Everyone is very friendly and the service is top notch. The breakfast sandwich is delicious and a perfect way to start the day.
