It is amazing with its homemade ice cream and good service. I know the owner and her daughters and they are very nice. To sum it up its a really good place to go.

Pop in and grab an ice cream at Dot's. You can walk to several nearby parks and enjoy it. If you find Java crunch in stock you had better grab it, it won't be there for long!

Apparently this place is really well known. Came here for some ice cream after eating some lunch. They had a decent selection of ice creams, every employee was nice. They were a little busy so there was a little wait but overall it was a great time.

I usually like more sophisticated flavors, but something drew me to their bright blue ice cream with marshmallows, and I have to say it was pretty amazing. My husband got the birthday cake ice cream, which was also super good! I wish we had something like this back home. Ben & Jerry's is great, but this place feels much more... More

Reasonable selection of home made ice creams, and large portions. Closes early at 8pm, but then so does everything in Bath!

The ice cream was delicious; the service was pleasant and the choices numerous. I highly recommend it as evening or afternoon snack, with the flexibility of being able to eat inside or going outside to sit and enjoy the flow of people traffic on Front Street.

My wife had an excellent vanilla sundae with caramel sauce. I had the chocolate chip small size in a waffle cone. With this large number of flavors available some will just be very good, as was my choice. Still better than most grocery stop offerings, and worth repeating. We also has sandwiches which were excellent. I had turkey with Swiss... More

This place is very cute,has a lot of unique flavors and even the regular flavors we got had something a little different (in a good way - the cookie dough was really rich and full of cookie dough, not the usual little frozen chunks). The service was friendly and kind. We enjoyed it!
