Great ice cream

We'd driven by on our first night in town and the line was insane. Came back the next night and found out why. Excellent ice cream (try the coconut one!) and prices weren't horrible. We ended up stopping by again on our way home for one last taste!

Great ice cream at this place. Milky, creamy, supple, and robust. Had the Kahlua Brownie which actually had me pretty bombed after two scoops. Bought a bottle of Kahlua on my home from Big D's because the ice cream was so good. Murdered the bottle when I got back and missed work the next morning because I was so hungover.... More

This is one of families top five ice cream places. Our summer trips to the ocean aren't complete without ice cream from big daddy's ice cream. They have many homemade flavors and its hard to choose just one. The sizes are generous, so my 3 and 5 year olds have more than enough with a kiddie size. You can even... More

Big Daddy's ice cream is the best around! It's home made - it's nice and creamy and they have the best brownie sundaes! It's also walking distance from Drake's Island Resort!

I ordered a small brownie sundae, which anywhere else may have been a large and it was delicious. My husband ordered the blueberry ice cream which was also very good. I recommend Big Daddy's.

Big Daddy's is a fixture on the southern Maine coast and has the very best ice cream in the area. They also serve frozen yogurt and sherbert and everything I have ever had here over 20 years has been great. In the summer there may be long lines, but it is worth the wait.

This spot sits right off Route One traveling north from Wells towards Kennebunk, we've been fans for the 2 years we've been coming to Wells. Have many flavors of traditional hard ice cream, soft serve and hard serve yogurt. My fav coffee Heath bar yogurt with chocolate jimmies!
