The ice cream is excellent with many great flavors but best of all is the fact that the use real ice cream and milk for their shakes, not the soft serve imitation stuff.

This is a small place with a surprising amount of options. There were probably 40 flavors of hard ice cream. We had the coconut, pistachio and doo drop( raspberry with pieces of chocolate). All of the flavors were good. Big pieces of pistachio,nice sized chocolate chips. They also have soft serve, sugar free ice cream and tofutti. Prices were reasonable.... More

This is a must stop. A small shack with young servers eager to help. Definitely try their "Mud" and "Swamp" flavors. They also are dog friendly. Maybe son's dog loves their doggy vanilla.

If you are looking for some great ice cream don't miss this spot. Great view of the harbor area. Perfect on those warm summer evenings.

Scoopy Doo's serves Bucks ice cream, locally made in Connecticut. It is particularly creamy and uses such fresh ingredients including giant strawberries in their strawberry ice cream and large chunks of real chocolate in their chocolate chip ice cream. There is ample parking and a very pretty outdoor area next to the harbor where you can sit and enjoy both... More

In a grassy, tree-lined park-ette near the harbor in Milford is this great ice cream spot. Be prepared to wait on line on warm summer nights--but the ice cream and the array of flavors is certainly worth the wait. Friendly team serves delicious treats.

In celebration of National Ice Cream Day my girl and I decided to head to Scoopy Doos. They offer many options but all the hand written menus are a bit over whelming. But on the other hand our ice cream was good and the location is great. By the way we had the Doo Drop, it is black raspberry ice... More

This is a favorite for the harbor-side location and plentiful seating. Good Buck's ice cream and fast service. Good variety of flavors and toppings, and a nice place to watch the boats and walk around.

This is a tiny little ice cream store in a very pretty spot by the Milford Harbor. It's not in the commercial district so you'll have to seek it out. The seating is all outside at benches and tables located by the Harbor. It's quite pretty, quiet and relaxing. Expect a line but it's a friendly line with everyone looking... More
