We went here one afternoon for ice cream and accidentally ordered enormous ice cream cones (not a bad problem to have!). Dozens of ice cream flavors made it so hard to choose that we went back the next night to try different ones. Uncommon flavors...More

The selection of ice cream and gelato at this place is amazing. Don't be put off by the long line - it moves fast and the service is great. They are open pretty late and we went twice after dinner during our Memorial Day weekend...More

The ice cream sundae and chocolate that we purchased here was great, but the fudge was just average. There is another store that sells fudge in town and it was much better. The ice cream sundaes are huge and delicious though.

Tried the lobster ice cream. Wasn't awful. Had Grand Mariner and Chocolate Explosion. Really good ice cream. Priced for tourists. Pleasant staff.

It really looks like a chaotic tourist trap, from outside, and we did not even notice the name of this store, until we returned home to see our pictures to see what it was. But, our experience was surely good and we left Bar Harbor...More

Cute shop and the ice cream was great but the service was poor. The girl waiting on us seemed annoyed and all we got were two chocolate ice cream cones.

I was craving coffee milkshake and wife ordered chocolate and a coffee. Both shakes were amazing. Long line but went quickly.
