High price. For the calories, insufficiently appealing. They were doing a brisk business despite the late hour and they are the only ice cream vendor around.

Thank you for your visit and feedback. I tried to reach you directly but I see you are not accepting messages. Since consistency is paramount and we have a farily consistent postive history, I am wondering if you could let us know the date you visited and the flavor or flavors you chose. We know we aren't perfect so anything... More

As far as ice cream goes this is pretty high up on the ice cream chain. This rivals any Top Selling grocery brand -very creamy and tasty and worthy of a 5 scoop rating!!

We LOVED this ice cream shop, the ice cream is amazing and you have to try the wild blueberry ice cream. Its a friendly place and we enjoyed sitting outside eating our treats

This is a very quick review because I neither had the ice cream or the food! What I can say is that my husband and I camped for two nights in the campground next to this restaurant and I forgot the coffeepot! Oh the horror! lol I went into the restaurant both mornings and bought two large coffees! The coffee... More

You have to have the dinner plate cookie ice cream sandwich - because you are on vacation and you won't find it anywhere else!

The ice cream side of this restaurant is very good but the other side, which perhaps has a different name, serves wonderful breakfasts & pretty good lunches. I had blueberry pancakes, which were out of this world & my family ordered traditional egg etc. breakfasts - more food than we needed but all of it was good. And the waitress... More

We went to pirates cove golf and a sign said: "Show scorecard at udder heaven for $2 off" so we did. We got a coffee soft serve and a vinilla. Both werer bigger than we expected! I ordered a lemon-ginger snap ice cream which was packed with flavor! Overall a great place. 🍦🍨🍧

We stumbled upon Udder Heaven after striking out trying to find parking in downtown Bar Harbor for ice cream. $3.95 will buy you one scoop, but it's a nice, big one. My salted carmel with pretzels was very good. My daughter's "cookie monster" was actually dyed blue - very cute - but have to dock a star because when my... More

This is my husbands favorite ice cream shop. We live in Colorado 2000 miles away. So when we are in Maine we go there every night. Large selection of flavors.
