Hard core local spot! An absolute must that you clear your calendar religiously every April 1st for the opening. You must wait in a line that snakes through the parking lot, and you will savor the true end of winter, rain, snow or shine!!!!

Can't wait to get back to Newport every summer for this soft ice cream. Have not found any place that compares. Love the old-timey atmosphere. Staff super friendly. Can't comment on any of the other options - I've only had the soft ice cream!

Frosty Freez serves only the BEST soft-serve real ice cream from Garelick Farms, and we offer 18 flavors of awesome hard ice cream from different vendors (Hershey's, Gifford's and Bliss Dairy, we picked our favorites!) We serve Only8 Frozen Yogurt, which is a non-fat, low-sugar treat that is safe for most diabetics and people with lactose intolerance, and we also carry sugar-free and dairy-free options. We're known for our fast, friendly service and reasonable prices, we keep the place clean as a whistle, and we care about our community. We work hard to make our shop a great place to take the whole family, or a date, or your friends, or just treat yourself!
