Only advertised by word of mouth by tourist. Serves breakfast and lunch only til 3pm. If you choose to have breakfast you must be there by 6:30 when it opens at 7:30 am. We arrived at 7:00 am and was not seated until 8:40 am. I must admit their macadamia nut pancakes with coconut syrup are the... read more

Stopping for a lunch at The Gazebo is a must every time we visit Bridgton. Friendly staff, good food and great ice cream. And we just love the building itself. A true landmark for the town.

The Gazebo is a MUST STOP if you are going through Bridgton. They have all the classics like lobster rolls, fried clams and soft serve. It is a seasonal restaurant so make sure you check online if you are going during the off season!

The Gazebo has been one of my favorites for many years. The texture and consistency of their soft serve ice cream is out of this world. They also have a large selection of scooped ice cream as well, but I prefer the soft stuff. Their staff are young and friendly. It's strictly window service, but that's ok by me. There... More

Kids needed a mid day ice cream stop and we didn't feel like driving to Dairy Bar in Naples (which we really like). Local people and a local dining spot we really like suggested the gazebo. Good Flavors, friendly service, and best of all, they have heathbar as a topping. They shut down in September for the season so hurry... More

Great ice cream, good variety of food, fair prices, friendly service! Only problem I have is that is can get SO crowded that there's nowhere to park. But otherwise it's my favorite ice cream joint in Bridgton!

We had fish tacos that were very good. My son had a burger and my daughter had a hot dog. Both liked their meals. Then we had some tasty ice cream. They gave out very big portions! Overal a great place to stop. There are outdoor picnic tables so our little cockapoo could sit with us.

Portions are H.U.G.E!! Friendly quick service. Haven't had anything but ice cream here so I can't comment on the food they offer, but the ice cream is great! Bring an appetite!

A typical stop for us during our stay every year, great food, and I love their ice cream, if it's busy, it is worth the wait!

All good. Service was friendly and accurate and the ice cream was delicious. We sat outside which allowed drips and spills to be overlooked. This is important when most are under 13.
