Inclusive Ice Cream

If you can't enjoy ice cream because of the dreaded dairy, the new Rivertown Ice Cream and Grill menu is a game-changer, with a dairy-free option. There are also flavors with no artificial colors.

If you've ever stopped in Rivertown Ice Cream you always had to have cash. But when the Wathen's open for the 2024 season they will be accepting credit and debit cards.
