Cute shop, great service!

Before setting out on our 3-day schooner trip, we were in the mood for pizza. Wouldn't recommend the pizza here, but the ice cream and the atmosphere were definitely worth the wait. Great service at a great price. Kind of took us "back in time!"

I was stuck between rating this as average or very good. The food, hands down, was AVERAGE. The pizza had a sweet sauce (and a heavy hand of it), which we do not prefer. The ice cream was OK, nothing to write home about. However, the service was amazing! The staff was friendly and provided top notch service.

This restaurant serves thin-crust pizza, calzones, soup, sandwiches, and desserts. My brother and I stopped in and ordered a Hawaiian pizza and both got hot fudge sundaes for dessert. The pizza was very tasty; I especially loved their pizza sauce and the ice cream was delicious! Highly recommend the toasted coconut flavor. While we were there the register went down... More

This might be an ice cream place, but my husband and I went here for the pizza! Their thin crust pizza is among the best we'd ever had and we will definitely be back!

My wife and I love Rockland, ME. In this little town you can find superb restaurants, lots of things to do in the area, and wonderful cultural events. We had a big lunch and were looking for something small for dinner. We walked downtown and found Thorndike Creamery. They sell pizza and Gifford ice cream. We ordered a couple of... More

Came upon this little ice cream shop while on a day visit to Rockland with my husband and kids. The staff was very friendly and patient as my kids couldn't decide what flavors they wanted. The atmosphere was inviting and relaxing. Will definitely stop by again the next time we are in town.

It was closing for the evening when we arrived but we got a pint to go and very much enjoyed it. The staff were great. We witnessed another customer giving them a hard time about closing but the employees were professional and gracious. We would go back, for sure!

I have only had pizza at The Thorndike Creamery twice and thought it was excellent. Eating this pizza is like a taste explosion in your mouth. A good mix of spices in a sweet sauce. This is very good thin crust pizza and worth trying. One of these days I will give their ice cream a taste.

Great local spot for ice cream and light local fare. There are a few seating spots in the front. The ice cream is Giffords (Maine) and awesome. The portions are ok for the price and always changing. The staff is awesome!
