A must stop treat for any ice cream fan! Plus summer lunch selections sure to please!

Can't believe I have never been to this place! This is a throwback to the old fashioned summer ice cream stand. What a treat to go here on the first nice day of Spring! By the looks of this place, it is the hottest spot in town to get ice cream since the lines were wrapped around the parking lot... read more

they have lazy man hours. They close at 9 pm on in the summer. And they close in October. i understand they are a landmark but i think they know it and do not care about customer service. I would rather go to Friendly's. I don't think the owner really cares about the customer because he makes so much money.... More

We look forward to BB opening every spring. It is such a treat to go there for the first time. The food is great but the ice cream is fantastic!!

You know when the Bubbling Brook opens it a sure sign that Spring has arrived and Summer is around the bend. Known for value and summer comfort food the Bubbling Brook delivers. My favorite is their tuna fish sandwich. Other favorites include fried clams and onion rings. Always a welcome spot and a must go on a hot summer day... More

This is an ice cream place. That is pretty much it. stay away from the cranky old guy there. If you want to get a rise out of the guy, ask for jimmies. An ice cream place and they don't have jimmies. Go figure.

Delicious rich ice cream, but get ready to stand in line unless it's raining. That's okay though because it's worth the wait while talking to your ice cream padres. Eating indoors, the restaurant hasn't change fed in years and neither have a couple of the waitresses. Always friendly efficient service and the food is basic, cooked well, seafood is always...

Got a recommendation to go. Was excellent. Club Sammie's were spot on. Fried clams and haddock were really good. Tried my sons burger, when he wasn't looking and it was wonderful. In fact I ordered one for the road. Finished off with ice cream that we ate outside in a beautiful day while the kids plated tag with some local... More

Luckily I know a local who knew of this place. The ice cream is fantastic but you can expect a line. In New England milkshakes go by the name of frappe. And make sure you get in the correct line! One line if for hard ice cream and one is for soft ice cream and there is a strict ordering... More

This place has been around forever. It's only open late Spring until Fall. The ice cream is the best in this entire area. There are flavors to suit everyone. The food is also very good. It's not gourmet but what you would expect at a dairy bar. Everything is fresh and cooked to order. All in all if you like... More
