Delicious ice cream, frozen yogurt, drinks and hot dogs, adjacent to the train, walk to the beach, plenty of covered but open air seating and parking, too. So friendly and a local favorite. Kids swarm after nearby baseball games (or during!)

A trip back in time with some good ole fashion soft serve ice cream. Being from the area i always would stop in for a quick fill of the cool whipped cream....nice place to pick up a cone and walk on downtown for a day of sight-seeing. Clean and at a good price the kids will love the tasty delight... More

I've been getting ice cream from here for over 20 years! It never disappoints and it's something I really look forward to year after year when then open for the season each summer. Every year I get the banana split and share it with my mom. It's SO good and really fun to eat. The soft serve is always tasty!

Right next to the Rockport Train Station is the best place in town for ice cream (and there are many choices downtown). Ice cream, hard yogurt, soft swirl, frappes, sodas, toppings, they have it all. Even a Rex Sox hot dog special! Make sure to get your card punched so that you can get a free item after buying 10.

The perfect summer spot for ice cream. They have wonderful soft serve ice cream and also great richardson's ice cream with every kind of topping. It is right near the train to / from Boston. It isn't summer without a stop there.

We live in Rockport and have tried all of the 'sweet spots'. This is hands down the best quality ice cream and is probably the most reasonable in price as well. They will give your dog a cup of ice cream after a long hike in the woods! Worth the walk up to the railroad station for a delicious sundae.

This has a beachy ,retro charm to it.Nothing fancy or gourmet just good ice cream.We got soft serve which was very good and they give you a generous amount.I could not believe the size of a small.Good for the money little pricey but so is everywhere you go for ice cream around here.
