$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

We were out looking for some locally made ice cream and came across this place on the side of the hightway with a large crowd, which is usually a good sign....and it was. They had so many flavors of ice cream and both indoor and outdoor spaces. Great for all weather!

Ice cream is my weakness. I doesn't take much to convince me to go grab an ice cream cone. That said, I like good ice cream. Big Daddy's is the best in Maine. I've been here quite a few times over the last 10-12 years during the summer and it never gets old. Have tried several of their flavors and... More

Best ice cream in New England, I've tried them all. The Grape nut ice cream is to die for, add a homemade brownie, hot fudge and whip cream and I could die in piece. The prices are very reasonable, I give it two thumbs up! Mully from Medford.

Big Daddy's is a fixture in this area of southern Maine and, as a local resident, I have to say it is a frequent stop for us. They are located right on route 1 and, although they have a large parking lot, it sometimes overflows. It is a very popular place. The ice cream is very good, as is the... More

TIP: CASH only. Go inside to avoid the lines. One of my top ice cream stores. Being from Kansas City, I love Murray’s in Westport and Sylas and Maddy's in Overland Park and Lawrence, Kansas, but Big Daddy’s ranks right up there. Big Daddy’s is open from 10:30a-11p in the summer. Skip dessert and go to Big Daddy’s instead. Sizes... More

This was one of the first places in the country to start putting crushed candy and cookies in Ice Cream. Their Ice Cream is hard to beat. Wide variety of special flavor and the basics. Go out of your way for Big Daddy's on Rt 1 in Wells

We spent more time here than I wish to say! Creamy homemade ice cream in a million flavors! Our favorites were the salted caramel and the blueberry, but I don't think you could wrong at Big Daddy's. Prices are what you'd expect for homemade ice cream in a touristy resort area. Big parking lot, tons of flavors, quick service and... More
