they have a great product and they are last place around to get orange pineapple. The mini golf is nice too and the best part is the Anti-mosquito measures they have taken!

I've been a regular since moving here two years ago. New flavors show up often and I haven't been disappointed yet. Even the kiddie sizes are pretty large. Important to note: They take cash only.

A friend and I stopped at Martel's for some ice cream. I had heard that the ice cream was really good but I had never stopped. I'm sure happy that I did. There was a great selection to choose from and the prices are reasonable. Sandwiches are also sold here at a reasonable price.

Many reviews note the excellent ice cream, small = large. I recently enjoyed a ham "Italian" sandwich which was excellent. When you are in Maine you should try one, it's the right bread, peppers, oil, and tomatoes (sliced just right). You'll see many places offering "Italians", get one before you leave the state. Mini-golf in rear, $8 adults and discount... More

I lived in Maine for two years and I always loved the summer because Martel's was open.They have some of the best ice cream I've come across in a long time. Its homemade which is even better! Plus their waffle cones and frappes are delicious!

Excellent ice cream, generous serving sizes, large variety of favors, toppings, etc. Don't miss out on the best ice cream in the area! Martel's also has a very nice mini-golf course!

At first I thought this ice cream was good, but once I got to the waffle cone it all came together. Absolutely delicious!

This place has the best ice cream in the area. I've been coming here for years and they have never disappointed. They have all the usual flavors and a great assortment of special flavors as well. You can also buy gallon tubs to bring home!
