Go Take a Dip at Newport’s Americana Ice Cream Shop

We’re delighted by the sugary scent of velvety soft serve every morning we open our ice cream shop on Aquidneck Island. As the third generation of caretakers of Frosty Freez, we take pride in running one of Newport’s tried-and-true institutions, a convivial outpost in Middletown that’s served the community with sweet treats—from delectable ice cream sandwiches to frozen yogurt in cups or wafer cones—since the dawn of the 1950s.

Every summer for the last 18 years, I meet my friends and family at Cardines Field at 20 America's Cup Avenue to hear the first crack of the bat during the opening game of the Newport Gulls, a summer collegiate baseball team based in our hometown of Newport, Rhode Island. Founded in Cranston in 1998, we take pride in saying we’re one of the NECBL's most successful teams, winning six Fay Vincent, Sr. Cups to date.

Eat Where New England’s Hottest Tradition Was Born

Crab Shack Entrance

There’s nothing like biting into a steamy fried clam roll while sitting on the beach overlooking Sakonnet River, the juiciness of the oyster seeping out to form the ultimate creamy combination with homemade mayonnaise. It’s hard to believe this sandwich, one of our most illustrious traditions, was all but unfathomable at the dawn of the 1900s when New Englanders only ate their clams steamed, raw on the half shell, or chopped in chowder.

Learn There’s A Story Behind Every Drink

Ballerina Drink

As guests walk into our bar I almost always see them immediately start to unwind. I think it’s our unique, historical and cozy setting, accented by candlelight and a fireplace that naturally gives way to conversation and relaxation. The lighting is soft, the seating is cozy and the music does not get in the way of talking. As a bartender, the atmosphere here helps me to connect with the guests. I LOVE hearing their stories and I feel like we can learn so much from each other.  Sometimes the Leyendecker paintings at the bar spark conversation, but often just a simple conversation about a drink recommendation can lead to a story.
