Fun Dogs!

This is a funky, off-beat little ice cream (and waffle!) place that happens to serve some of the best hot dogs around. You can choose your dog (beef, turkey, etc.) and customize your toppings, or go with one of the combinations on the menu. With offerings like caramelized onions and blue cheese... read more

Just had ice cream here which good, nice that it's open late with a fun and interesting menu. The staff seemed young and unsupervised, took turns disappearing with friends into the parking lot and just hanging around in the front.

No, it's not the best meal I've ever had in a restaurant (trip advisor question), but it is a worthwhile, one-of-a-kind Boothbay Harbor summer experience. It's not a sit-down, white linen place. It is fun and casual; a great stop after a walk around the harbor. They do creative hot dogs and offer a worthy lobster roll, and the service... More

We had waffle sandwiches which were supposed to be hot waffles and ice cream. Unfortunately the waffles had obviously been made earlier on a dirty machine as they were cold and had several black patches. The ice cream was ok, but nothing special.

Maybe it’s because we didn’t get the waffle cones they seem to be famous for but we thought the ice cream was nothing special in any way. Had a dish of coffee ice-cream as well as a chocolate shake and both just ok. This may be the best ice cream place in Boothbay but sorry for others to think this... More

Great ice cream and many flavors to choose from. Good value for the price. Outside seating only but if you are eating ice cream on a hot night what better place to be. right at the edge of the wooden foot bridge.

We all had different orders and we all LOVED what we had. I had the ME tradition. SOO good. The mixture of ice cream and waffles is delicious. My husband had the good apple (and I tried some), so good! My daughter loved her smores waffle. The order taker was friendly and quick. The service is a tad slow (I... More

Wannawaff has grown to be a destination to visit for a wonderful desert after dinner. I always make my own (that I really feel they should add to the menu) of ice cream on a waffle with Hot Fudge over it all. yummy! They are cleverly almost 'hidden' near the intown side of the footbridge and under Andrews Harborside Restaurant... More

Great large scoops of ice cream and great innovative ways to serve it. Many flavors and novel combos.
