Delicious!

Best homemade ice cream I've had in a while. Better than Richardson's, (although big daddy's does carry their froyo, which is another go to of mine). The ice cream doesn't leave you feeling heavy in the tummy. Had the coffee Heath ice cream and it hit the spot! Hubby had khalua brownie. It was... read more

My family and I love ice cream shops. Love, love, love them. This place was so disappointing. It claims to have homemade ice cream. If it was being made by this store, I didn't see any facilities to do that. Perhaps it is 'homemade' off site. Though the portions were nice, the quality was dismal. The chocolate peanut chip ice...

The ice-cream is really good, the portion for what you pay is huge, I took a medium one and we could share it for 2 people, took the grapenut and pudding flavor was good :)

I never paid much attention to where I ate ice cream. Wherever was convenient and if they had a flavor I liked, that was good enough for me.

The ice cream here is incredible. I had m&m and my husband had Reese's. We were very happy campers! The prices are reasonable and there is plenty of parking. We will be back!!

Big Daddy's is my favorite ice cream spot in Wells, Maine. I highly recommend everything on the menu, especially the mint chocolate chip ice cream, yummy! I always have a great experience at Big Daddy's with their fast service and friendly staff.

Our group of five enjoyed ice cream treats one evening. There were many flavors to choose from and the ice cream was delicious. Quick service and picnic tables were available.

Delicious old-fashioned hard ice cream in tons of flavors. Very convenient location with tons of parking. Fairly average prices.
