Stopped in on our trolley ride of Saco

Yummy! Order the small because it looks like a large. Delicious ice-cream, friendly staff, clean environment! Reminded me (along with Funtown Splashtown) of Goodrich in Omaha, Nebraska and Peony Park in Omaha Nebraska where I spend many childhood summers.

Martell's is a fantastic, family owned business. They only hire pite, helpful staff. Their ice cream is the BEST ever! Definitely worth going out of your way for!

Living near to this family owned and operated business we are able to visit often during the open season. We are always greeted with beaming friendly faces, impeccable service and spectacular favors offered by their homemade ice cream, flawless fudge and supreme sandwiches. Stop in for ice cream after an exciting day here in vacationland and then go back for... More

My wife had the BlackBerry and chocolate mix cone and my son had the cookie dough cone. Mine was only ok.... The size was not that big at all for a medium and... More

Classic Maine ice cream place on Rt. 1., eat in or out. Some unusual flavors as well as the old favorites, all homemade, all delicious.

My family loves coming to Martel's. They have a huge selection of homemade ice cream. Each week they have several different speciality flavors. Their prices are pretty reasonable for the size you get. Overall a great place.

We found this homemade ice cream place a few years ago and since then have never gone anywhere else! Absolutley the BEST coffee ice cream in Maine :) Coffee Oreo is delicious. The staff are always pleasant and the prices are fair too.

Have been to Martel's several times with our family in Saco...very good ice cream and very efficient staff. It can get crowded on a hot summer's day, but the system in Martel's really works. My favorite is the coffee ice cream and other family members love the chocolate chip and the maple walnut...but they have some other very interesting flavors... More

Everyone is an ice cream expert and everyone has their own favorite place, but for us its Martels for many years now because their ice cream is simply the best. We rarely ever eat ice cream back home, just so when we visit Maine we can pig out at Martels The ice cream is creamy and flavorful, and home made,... More

Martel's is one of our favorite ice cream places. They create delicious flavor combinations. The mini golf course out back is pretty fun too!
