Best ice cream anywhere

This is the best ice cream I've had, and the variety offered is extensive and imaginative. Can hardly wait for it to reopen after a long Maine winter.

Out of all of the local ice cream places I've tried, Big Daddys always has the best sizes and flavors. One of the best places in town though sometimes the lines end up being a little long (just gives you more time to decide a flavor or three).

If your looking for some great ice cream, Big Daddys is the place. Large servings and lots of varieties to choose from. Friendly service. Makes for a nice dessert at the end of the day.

When my grandson walked up to the counter he asked where Nog Daddy was. They said he was at home. The ice cream was delicious but a bit pricey. Don't order a small for little kids, we should have shared a small. The portions are huge.

This place has the best ice cream in Maine! I haven't done an extensive research on various locations in Maine but I do like fresh ice cream. It is a very hood place for a quick desert!

Big Daddy's is an institution for anyone that has spent time in the Wells, Kennebunk, Ogunquit area of Maine. Located right on the main drag between Wells and Kennebunk it has great ice cream in tons of flavours and there are new ones every year. It is a must for anyone in the area and best after a great day... More

$1.75 for a freshly steamed Hebrew National hot dog... can't go wrong... hot dogs, chips, and cokes for three, only about twelve bucks. Didn't have the ice cream but it looked good.

The ice cream is very good here. I had the Maple Walnut and my wife had the peppermint. I would encourage you to order small orders if you want two scoops or less. This place is pricey but at least they give you a good product.

Big Daddy's is one of the creamiest ice creams in the region. Flavors are purely divine and taste like good old-fashioned ingredients - the fruit is sweet and natural and newer flavors true to taste. Love the frozen yogurt too. Coffee Heath bar is outstanding. Yogurts are by Richardson Farms, but oh so good. The plus is that you can... More
