This is the place on Block Island to get your ice cream fix. They have a huge selection of homemade ice cream and frozen yogurt. Dangerous if you like ice cream. We saved it for our last day on the island, otherwise we knew we would be back every day.day

My family loves the ice cream- many flavors to choose from. But I prefer their lemon bars- the best by far!

Not many choices for flavors of Ice Cream but given the time of the year, I'll give them a pass as the season was coming to an end.

Can't speak for the ice cream but the chocolate covered macaroons are worth the trip alone! My friend tried the ice cream and deemed it very good.

Good ice cream right in town, steps from the ferry. Believe me, I ate every bite; but I am spoiled by The Daily Scoop in Barrington, RI and this ice cream was less creamy than that. My wife went across the street for a different flavor and hers was also delicious.

Did not try other places, like Aldo's across the street, but the ice cream we had was pretty good. Not super clean or unique flavors but perhaps that adds to its charm.

Great ice cream with a wide variety of flavors. The counter help was very pleasant and helpful. Right in the center of town.

Go to Aldo's for ice cream - or better yet - Beckett's for gelato. Both places are far better, give you more, and have more choices. Not to mention the wait staff is much friendlier and communicative. I think this place just goes on its past reputation. It has seen better days.

Service was good. Cant' speak for all the flavors, but we had the Vanilla with Pecan Gelato and the nuts were old. My recommendation would be not to make big batches. Would have been perfect of the nuts we crunchy.
