Got the urge for a sweet & stopped by Polar Treat for an ice cream. The serving was generous & delicious - some of the best we’ve had in a long time. Although we only had ice cream, there appeared to be another window for...More

Ice cream is really ice milk. Not a rich ice cream. Their toppings are extremely poor and ruin the ice milk. I would avoid it.

I stopped here mid-afternoon and joined about a dozen carloads of people enjoying this roadside stop. Most everyone else seemed to be enjoying ice cream and there are multiple outdoor tables you can use. I'd missed lunch so I ordered a cheeseburger. It was ready...More

This cute, old school roadside restaurant makes for a nice road trip break. They have all kinds of soft and hard serve ice cream. I had coffee and Heath bar flavor. They also offer food, seafood and tacos. Tasty!

They always have daily flavors of the ice cream. Food is cooked to order and reasonably priced. We make sure we stop every time we go to Maine. The Large is almost too big.

Polar treat has a great selection of frozen treats as well as hot cooked food. I have only had the ice cream, and it is very good. The portions are modest for the price, but this is a tourist area so not unexpected. They also...More

Good spot to hit on your way to or from Easport Me. Milk shakes are the best as well as the soft serve.
