Great choices of ice cream and the ones we chose were worth every bite. We had heard about this ice cream so we decided to give it a try.

Even late at night this place was busy. Quite a lot of flavors to chose from. They also give a very generous scoop of ice cream. You won't go away hungry!

Pricy, but that's expected on the harbor near the shops. Great selections. Fast service. Good location too.

Tried to find this place last night. It was the anniversary of my beloved chow Nero's birthday. He passed in 2007 but when he was alive we always went for ice cream on his birthday, so I still do every year in his memory. We went crazy wandering around town trying to find this place after reading the great reviews,... More

Great ice cream and very reasonably priced. One scoop is huge, and you can get 2 cones for around $5. Well worth the stop, and bucks, and we stopped everyday of vacation there.

There are 3 ice cream shops within sight of one another at Boothbay Harbor, and Island Cow is hard to beat. The ice cream is incredibly fresh, made by the owner from, if I heard him correctly, his own cattle. The flavors are eclectic and suggestions are made on how to combine them for the optimal flavor explosion. We came... More

Ignore the long line down the street. Seek out this new, hole-in-the-wall establishment with creamy, organic ice cream to die for. Highly recommend the Heath bar , but you can't go wrong with any of the 15 or so flavors. Doesn't look like much - but the ice cream is fantastic.

Fantastic organic ice cream. Mocha Chip was wonderful. Coffee Chip was wonderful. Chocolate was wonderful. The vegetarian sandwich with Avocado, Tomato, Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Arugula on Focaccia was fantastic though melting the cheese would have made it even better. I rarely rave about food places, but this one is wonderful.
