OMG OMG this was the best homemade ice cream ever!!! I had the coconut flavor and the taste was so fresh! The cookie and cream was also very delicious. The only negative part about this place is that it is too far from my home...More

This was right across from our hotel, so we went after dinner one night. It was their last night of the season, so they were out of some flavors. The ice cream was good, but nothing spectacular.More

I will take a "good "with three hours left in the season. However we hope you have the chance to visit us again when we are in full service. I think there were only 7 of our 55 flavors available during your visit. Safe travels....More

The ice cream was delicious. The workstaff was very friendly. Bob, is the nicest. I come here every summer, and I go every night, practically, though cannot call myself a patron.

Very fun little place with lots of yummy flavors and it is right off the highway towards the top of the island so you don't have to fight the massive crowds in Bar Harbor. They have whoopie pies and blueberry pie (with blueberry ice cream!)...More

We had single scoop cups: Maine blueberry for one and chocolate chip for the other. Portions were generous and the price is good, considering the size and quality. I recommend getting chocolate chip topping for the blueberry ice cream; I kept stealing chocolate chips from...More

Thank you for visiting with us. My goodness, we have a case of chocolate chips sitting in the refrigerator. If your soles are still in Bar Harbor, perhaps we can soothe your soul. If not thank you again and safe travels. Bob

Wow. Just wow. Had the mocha chip and double chocolate ice cream and it was nothing short of divine. They also offer ice cream making classes for kids, too. Plus, it is across the street from a mini golf place and the loser in your...More

Sorry to hear about that. Since all our plain waffles are in fact home made, I can tell from what you describe, that your cone was just not baked long enough. As far as your "overseas", comments, well interestingly in a way you are correct....More
