Worth the wait - almost always a long line - for good reason - enjoy your wait and enjoy your ice cream treat - good quality and good size - service is pretty good also - no inside seating.

Stopped in Beals during a Canadian cruise. Wonderful ice cream, nice area to enjoy it as well. When we are in Portland again this will be a definite stop.

Great spot to stop for a treat on a hot day. We didn't really know much about it but hard a fair amount of people so must be good.

This is a very cute store, set up all old-fashioned. The ice cream is delicious and I also got a blueberry soda that was very good.

Cold, creamy ice cream. Flavor choices not excellent, maple walnut was delicious. A bit pricey but what else can you do when you need ice cream?
