Outstanding ice cream stand. Large selection of flavored, including frozen yogurt. Not what you'd call cheap, but the portions are huge. DO NOT MISS THIS PLACE!

I've been coming here for years and it's a highlight of a trip to southern Maine! You'll have a hard time deciding what flavor to try as Big Daddy's offers a long list of homemade, creamy rich treats. I recommend the pistachio, but there are enough flavors to make even the most discriminating ice cream connoisseur happy. Unique flavors like... More

Ice at its best! This is a Mom and Dad ice cream parlor and it is all home made. Can't get any better that that. It is a little north of the other attractions there for less line ups. A must try!

Fabulous handmade ice cream with many flavors to chose from. My son had pumpkin, which was scrumptious and would be divine on pumpkin pie! I had salted caramel crunch and wished that I had bought a large one!

The ice cream was really good, BUT the customer service was below average. The girl that waited on us didn't even greet us or smile or offer a thank you. After taking our order for two ice creams, she gave us one of the dishes. Then she waited on and served the next person, then went and prepared our second... More

The ice cream is homemade and truly delicious. There is inside and outside seating but the outside seating has a view of the highway. The inside seating is adequate. It's a wonderful stop for the ice cream.
