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

Scoopy Doos woot woot! I would go daily if I could. Ice cream is one of my favorite desserts and Scoopy Doos never disappoints except when they're out of my favorite flavor Mud but I do have a backup so I never have to leave empty handed. You can even enjoy your ice cream while walking the Green or near... More

Scoopy Doo's has many flavors and options. My family of four spent $17 for three kids ice cream cups and a large shake. One added bonus is being able to sit near the marina while eating you ice cream.

Awesome little place. The staff was very nice and patient. Portions were generous. Great location on the Marina. Picnic tables and public bathrooms. Went with the family and walked across the footbridge to the park. They were having add outdoor free summer concert. Loads of people having a great time dancing or sitting on lawn chairs and kids playing on... More
