Stopped for an evening ice cream. Had the black raspberry disaster. Small cup was more than enough for two to share. Good quality ice cream and reasonably priced. Excellent view... read more

My husband and I were determined to sample a lot of blueberry soft serve during our week long Acadia/Bar Harbor vacation. We discovered CJ's on our third day and it was the third place we tried. It was also the last as it became out "go to" stop for our daily dessert! It tasted like fresh blueberries and was delicious.... More

There was a vast variety of mouthwatering flavors. Not just ice cream, but Gelato and frozen yogurt as well. A number of flavors from wild Maine blueberry to chocolate peanut butter. (Even Whoopie pie!) The staff was very polite and friendly. If you haven't eaten here yet, then you're missing out!

Server made comments about having ice cream samples...don't offer samples if you are going to make snide comments to people who want them! Also they were very unaccomodating. I just wanted a little hot fudge on a kids cup & was told I'd have to get a sundae. I didnt want a large sundae & would have paid for hot... More

Fantastic place - lots of great flavors! Rum Raisen one of my Dads favs - when have you ever seen that - I haven't. It is $4 per scoop or soft serve portion - I'm always disappointed with small portions - but not in this case the portions were HUGE! The fresh Maine Blueberry I just thought yea it will... More

Stopped for an evening ice cream. Had the black raspberry disaster. Small cup was more than enough for two to share. Good quality ice cream and reasonably priced. Excellent view of the park and street from the patio.

Great location and outside deck, great selection and portions as well as fair prices... only negative: personnel that day was seriously lacking on personality. Great outside, people watching location.

Big servings with unusual pairings. But my husband got hooked on the soft serve blueberry/vanilla twist. He's not one to request treats so it was good!

Not too bad , a little pricy. Four dollars a scoop. They only accept cash, atm on premises. We sat outside nice atmosphere.

Lots of flavors, including some I've never seen anywhere else, and even the small size is a hearty serving of rich creamy ice cream.

Can't believe how bad the service is here. It ruins the ice cream! The young man working the counter is extremely rude and abrupt. Maybe he was having a bad day but he shouldn't take it out on customers. I would definitely recommend going somewhere else for ice cream!
