The ice cream itself was just ok. My husband ordered this for his dessert and was very disappointed. We stopped on the way to the hotel. The $3 size wasn't even a full scoop. He even questioned the server to see if it was a mistake-- we didn't get what we paid for--

You know, we all grew up on Newport Creamery ice cream. And, if we were lucky, we could go for lunch and get a Newport Creamery style Grilled Cheese Burger. Put a little pickalilly on it, and whammo, you got a too-die-for lunch. I praise the heavens that this restaurant is carrying on the tradition.

You'll find what you expect here -- some charming old-fashioned sandwiches and soups and also great ice cream dishes and shakes. Order take-out, or go in and dine, sitting in a booth or at the long counters. This is a tasty bit of Rhode Island history.

Walked in, no hello. We're seated and served with filthy menus, not cleaned. 5 mins later we think the waitress came over; did not say one word. Stood there. I asked if she was talking our order [I'm pissed at this point] told her to give me one minute. My husband and I discussed if we should stay. 10 mines... More

My first job at 15 was at Newport Creamery on Smith Street in Providence. Great staff friendly and helpful great customer service. And they take great care everyday in the morning with a circle of 75++ young at heart seniors. My mom loves having breakfast at NC everyday!! Thanks for caring so much😍

I saw a long line outside and almost decided to not try this place. I tried the Awful Awful in Strawberry and also the Bourbon Vanilla flavor (buy one get one free on Mondays). They were great!! I am definitely going to visit this shop again.

Great new look for the great food that is being served. Really clean and fresh atmosphere. Has a family feel with warm touch. You feel taken care of. Hidden gem.
