The date above is incorrect since I moved from Maine in 2012, but Beals is the BEST ice cream in Maine....it has various locations in the Portland area and is locally made...can't be beat!

Was attracted to this place because of the crowd and indulge in a large serve of maple with walnuts. Not disappointed.

The ice cream is rich, creamy and delicious. My favorites are the Peppermint Stick, Vanilla Cookie Dough and the Grapenut! Best place to go for ice cream in Maine.

My family and I stopped in for some ice cream yesterday afternoon, and overall, we liked it. I had the fudge peanut butter, my daughter had the moose swirl, my wife had the peppermint stick (icy), and my friend had a hot fudge sundae on frozen yogurt ($25 total). I've had better and I've had worse. It was a little... More
