This is a summer spot to enjoy a variety of ice cream dishes. The portions are big for the price you pay. Always a pleasant experience.

Dot's has decent ice cream and soups. Nothing fancy, but convenient. Parking in the back. Limited seating. Fair prices.

I have been watching for Dot's Dairy Bar to be open since it closed for the winter. It is a wonderful neighborhood spot. The place to get ice cream and sundaes, etc. I especially go there for wieners. Which is a Rhode Island Must! If you don't live in the neighborhood, you can just easily get off 95 Newport Ave...

Great variety of flavors. Could benefit from having some more frozen yogurt options, but when ice cream is this good you don't need many flavors. Great little location a short drive from Cumberland, Pawtucket Red Sox games, and from South and North Attleboro
