Enjoy Delicious Seafood & Ice Cream on Boston’s North Shore

The best seafood in Massachusetts isn’t the only thing you’ll find at Woodman’s of Essex! After making a meal of our traditional fried clams, fish, shrimp, and scallops; a fresh steamed lobster; or maybe a bowl of our classic, award-winning chowder, why not indulge in a scoop or two of the best Boston area ice cream from Gifford’s of Maine? Since 2008, we have served up scoops of Gifford’s of Maine Ice Cream because it has that authentic ice cream stand flavor we all remember, and nothing says summertime like a trip to Woodman’s for a seafood feast and a sweet, creamy cone.

“Woodman’s Retail and Ice Cream Shop” is conveniently located directly behind Woodman’s restaurant. It features cones, cups, sundaes, frappes, and other soda fountain treats, all in a variety of flavors. Woodman’s and Gifford’s, two New England Classics “melting” together to scoop-up a new summer tradition – even in fall! We’re here to satisfy your sweet tooth with delicious ice cream after you have the best seafood in Massachusetts.
