When you go to an ice cream shop in New England you want good, tasty and lots of it. This place doesn't skimp or have scales to make sure you getting the exact amount. This place loads it on like all ice cream shops should! A quarter kiddie is like a regular cone anywhere else. They love to dish out... More

Ahhhhhh mazing ice cream with huge portions. Nice, friendly staff. Get the kiddie which may sound like a little portion....It's not. It's three scoops of ice cream folks. Hand made ice cream and a must if your nearby.

Really good ice cream, decent prices and generous potions. What's. There are two locations, one is Amesbury and one in Salisbury. What is not to like?

Hodgies has been a mainstay in Amesbury since my children were little. They make all their ice cream and have wonderful seasonal offerings like fresh peach ice cream. The serving are unbelievably big - their small is huge. Be sure to ask how large a kiddie is before ordering - you will be shocked if you don't. In the summer... More

Most any one who has had their ice cream would agree it ranks some of the best anywhere. Great selection of flavors The amount is generous.Not unusual for folks who live in Boston to take a drive North just for their ice cream.

The ice cream at Hodgie's is "THE BEST". Everything is homemade and all of the help, as well as the owner, always greet everyone with a smile. Last summer, when enjoying a visit from our grandchildren, our 7-year-old granddaughter said, "Grammie...I can read that sign on your kitchen counter. It says, 'Life is short...eat dessert first.'" I said to her,... More

The Hodgies experience is just that....An EXPERIENCE, most fun when treating the kids to the Hodgies 13 scooper and each of the kids had their own spoon to dig into it. Really good ice cream at a great value.

All ice home made on premises. Some unique flavors. Sizes are deceivingly huge! Never had a bad flavor or experience here!

We were in the area geocaching and saw this nostalgic roadside snack bar. We talked with a few patrons in the parking lot and decided on their recommendations that we should try it. I had the sausage roll and it was fine. Fun location that was being visited by many locals that were known by name. Nice throwback experience.
