We love this traditional North Shore Ice Cream Shoppe. There are selections for everyone (shakes, frappes, yogurt, ice cream, candy, etc.) and the portions, particularly for the ice cream are HUGE ("small" does not mean small!). Expect to wait in line -- and meet lots of new friends -- but the wait is very well worth it.

Ice cream a real treat. We love grape nut - it's a New England thing, not available in the south. Pleasant service

This is a must whenever we are in the area. Always good. So many choices to choose from and always great. Service is fast and efficient and prices a little high but the servings are unbelievable. Frappes are just perfect.

Our entire family loves the treats at Treadwells. Some of us like the frozen yogurt, while others like the incredible ice cream, but we all love the selection! And the place is always open...it's terrific. I just love driving home from an evening out, and it's open and people are in line! The service is efficient and friendly, also. During... More

I have been going to Treadwell's for many years now (it is a 2.5 hr drive). Of course, there are other reasons for driving up to Salem/Peabody, but Treadwell's has been one of my places-to-go-to whenever I'm in the neighborhood. Vanilla malts at Treadwell's have always been absolutely stellar, this time...not so much. Actually, it was horrible...very watery. The young... More

I traveled from the South Shore to the North Shore to try this ice cream my family raves about. Well I am impressed, the pistachio was so creamy and had the right amount of nuts. We had a ice cream sundae and a chocolate, chocolate shake. Everything was totally awesome. I also grabbed a raspberry lime Rickey for the trip... More
