Great Pizza!

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!

The staff at the Thorndike Creamery has always impressed me because they are always so pleasant. The place has a funky feel to it and has both tables and bar seating along the window facing the side street (Tillson Avenue). There's a huge chalkboard and chalk for doodling and a bulletin board crammed with all sorts of announcements and business... More

The Thorndike is a part of Rockland history. Used to be a brothel.. now an ice cream shop :- P Also, they have pizza... it is a little pricy, but a damn good pie.

The pizza is not good. The crust is pre-made and tough as the cardboard box it came in. The sauce tasted like pasta sauce. $ 25 for a large with a few extra toppings. Is this the best pizza in Rockland? Absolutely not!
