5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2014

I rode in to an empty parking lot. I had to think and reaffirm that I did indeed see an open sign out front. Walking, I reached the half way point. At one moment, mid-stride, I was about fifteen feet from my car behind me, and the order/pickup window ahead. At that moment I noticed a figure in the dimly... More

This stand located on the island between the north and south sides of town has both soft serves and gourmet-quality hard serves. The service makes this fun, and just do not jump in your car to eat - sit at the tables along the river bank and lick that cone slowly, enjoying your time, place and company!

Average ice cream, but at a reasonable price. Service is friendly and consistent. Not my first choice, but this joint never lets me down from what I expect from it.

We have a camp north of Skowhegan & always stop here on our way back home on the coast. We really enjoy their soft serve flavors & they have lots of hard ice cream flavors as well. The staff has always been pleasant & very accommodating. Once they even served us 20 minutes before they opened because they knew we... More

Prices were average and portions were good, but ice cream wasn't very good. You get a good amount of ice cream for the price, but really, who wants more ice cream that's not very good. Pass.

Great ice cream at a reasonable price. We visit my wife's family in Maine every year, and this is one of our vacation stops. Soft ice cream with lots of toppings to choose from are a tasty delight. Picnic table seating right on the river close to the swinging bridge make this a fine place to stop with the kids.

Workers ignored me and when they finally took my order the actual ice cream was average.
