“This visit just wasn't on par with what it should have been”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Stopped in for lunch after a long day of dance competition in nearby East Providence. In my past visits to Newport Creamerys (various locations) they have all been average in terms of quality, food, service, etc. This particular visit fell below such average. Melt sandwich bread was barely toasted at all. French fries were extremely limp and greasy. Bacon on one of our melts was completely burned to a crisp. The server was very inattentive, disappearing for long periods of time, not refilling water, was not even busy in the restuarant.

The mens restroom door is constructed such that you can see the urinal from a large number of the restuarant booths. That's not something people want to see when they are eating. Especially if it is occupied.

The restuarant itself was filled with some sort of smoke from something having been burnt in the kitchen prior to our arrival.

The ice cream, though, was pretty good as expected. However, the caramel topping two of us had was very congelled and tough to eat.

Will not be returning to this particular location. However, that being said, this could have just been a bad day for the restuarant or manager. I assume it typically provides much better service and quality than what we experienced. And also, this type of chain is not expected to have high quality food and service. I would have expected average at best. It's just this particualr time we got pretty sub par quality and service. It's probably hit or miss I'm guessing.

“quick stop”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Quick easy meals, hamburgers, hotdogs, and meals. Pretty good for breakfast too. The ice cream I crave. Most of the time the staff is pretty good and know their many regulars. Tends to get messy[not dirty] because of the heavy family traffic. Very reasonable!

“Creammmmmy ice cream”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

We loved the chocolate caramel sundae. Yum
It's just a plain old ice cream and lunch kind of place, and they do a good job with it. The ice cream is very creammmmmy . A good place to take the family too. They have a cute desert that the kids can make their own sundae right at your table.

“Great Ice Cream”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

We stopped by and got an ice cream cone and ice cream in a cup. We both enjoyed the flavor and the price was very reasonable.

“Best Fast Food around.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Great food, great prices, great staff! I highly recommend a chocolate frappe with you lunch. I always get the hot dog and fries. For dessert, I love m and m's and fudge.
