SUPER friendly service

We've been to the Haven dozens of times over the years. Their ice cream is high quality, and we love to watch and feed the ducks while we have our dessert. Recently, we went inside and ordered food for the first time. They have a small but clean indoor seating area where you can order and... read more

I don't know what's going on here...but...I gave this place 3 tries over a few months and the soft serve just doesn't taste right. It's icy and there is a bland flavor to it. In addition, the candy toppings seem stale and tasteless as well. Avoid!

Visiting the Epping area, I stopped at The Haven which serves Richardson’s Ice Cream. I got a Kiddie size cone of Wickedly Chocolate with a cup to catch drippage. It was $3.00. Service was friendly and accurate. Naturally, since it was Richardson’s, the ice cream was rich, creamy, and delicious. The chocolate ice cream with bits of chocolate and chocolate... More

The clam strips were fresh and fantastic and the lobster salad on a salad was very tasty. Nice fresh seafood. The locally bottled root beer made just for the Haven was good as well. Lovely duck pond area where local kids get to name the ducks. They are too small as of May 31st to go in the pond so... More

We were hungry enough for an early supper to stop in The Haven on the way home. It has an outdoor dining area, so if you have a dog you can eat your meal outside with your pet in tow. If you have kids who like to feed ducks, The Haven offers small cups of duck food for a quarter... More

Great place to bring the kids for dinner. Kids menu, games to keep little ones busy while waiting for their food, and ducks to feed. Lots of fried food options, great French fries and onion rings. Ice cram favors- lots to choose from as well as yogurt, and soft and hard ice cream. Specialty flavors change weekly as well. Staff... More

Cute little place with outdoor picnic tables and an indoor option. Also nice Duck Pond for the families with kids. I had a hot dog and was a little disappointing with the size...there was way more bun than dog. Maybe it's just me but a pencil thin dog just ruined it for me. However they have great french fries and... More

Nice place if you want to eat outside. Service was friendly and fast. Based on the size of the bill I expected LOTS of food Food was good, although not great. Most disappointing was the portion size. Very small for the price paid. There are so many other options in Epping with a much better value.

We look forward to our summer treat of their hand cut french fries every year! The ice cream and sandwiches are good too. Nice place to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather.
