Not only are the ice cream, gelatto, and frozen yogurt flavors superb, but you can get any portion you want. In addition to a "small," for example, opt for a "mini" or even a "baby" scoop. THIS lets you get little scoops of several flavors!!!!

We stopped here after having a delicious dinner at Dockside with friends. It is a step-up window service. The portions are huge, had a great selection of ice cream and shakes. Everyone received our order perfectly and quickly. There was no line this night, however there usually is. Lindsey was our server and she was just great. You can walk... More

Great ice cream. Large portions and a lot of choices. Reasonable prices. I tried purple cow and almond joy. They are both fingerlicking. :D Staff was nice and friendly.

We have been enjoying Stillwells for two summers. The ice cream is amazing as are the portions. It is a great place to bring the family on a warm night in Alton Bay! The prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend it.

I am SO happy Stillwells has come to Alton. I love their Richardson's-brand ice creams, and love even more the frozen yogurt options (Purple Cow in particular). This ice cream stand has big portions, so order a small size. They are super-affordable, and we love to walk the short distance to eat it by the water, either at one of... More

Out of all the ice cream places down at the Bay, Stillwell's gives you the most for the buck. It is Richardson's ice cream that tastes great. There's also many sizes to choose from. A mini is even enough to satisfy your taste buds. Love going there and sad when it closes.

Stillwell's has very good ice cream -- unfortunately it is often overlooked in favor of it's competition across the road. Stillwell's is, in my opinion, better ice cream -- and a slightly better price. Definitely worth a try.
