This is the place to go for ice cream! Home made ice cream, HUGE portions, and well over 30 flavors! This is family friendly and a local gem! You can also gt sundaes, frappes, waffle cones and more! They have no sugar added homemade ice cream and local specialty ice creams like rum raisin, Indian pudding and grapenut ice cream.... More

Black raspberry sugar-free ice cream that is incredibly wonderful may sound too good to be possible, BUT Big Daddy's has it. OK, maybe it has s-o-m-e sugar. I don't care, because if it has less than usual, I'm in! So good, generous portion, will go again soon.

Wonderfully creamy, tasty ice cream in so many flavors your head will spin (with delight). I found the kid size cone to be the perfect size (big enough to satisfy, small enough not to feel guilty). Lovely smiling service as well.

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.
