We went to this ice cream place two nights in a row. The first time the line was out the door but the wait was reasonable. There was 8 in our group.

First time visiting Dot's while in town on our most recent trip to Bath. We ended up stopping another night while we were in town because it was so good. We had ice cream both nights, though I see the do sandwiches and other things too. The portions are great, the service is fast and friendly, and the prices are... More

Dot's is a simple ice cream shop that sell's Swains of Maine ice cream, which is great ice cream. THe prices here are fantastic - the kiddie cone is about 2.35 and is huge. Some great Maine flavors here like Grape Nut Pudding ice cream (my favorite!) But what was surprising was how nice the lunch was. I am in... More

Cute shop in Bath. The whoopie pie, dino crunch and cotton candy were all great choices. The small is 2 scoops and a good price. For those looking for a smaller portion, the kiddie cone is a perfect size at one scoop. They also have shaved ice and frozen yogurt.

Lots of flavors to decide from. Service was fast. Price was fair. A small is two large scoops. Would recommend the whoppie pie ice cream flavor.

Very unique and very good and was in a nice part of town and I was surprised it was open late on a Sunday night. I will likely go back again

We have been here a few times in the past for lunch and ice cream. They are known for their ice cream, but it's also a great place to grab a cup of coffee or lunch. They make panini and they have offered a great lobster roll in the past.

We stopped at Dot's for the first time recently and were crazy about their ice cream. Cups come in 3 sizes, kiddie, small, and large. We had the small and can't imagine eating a large...it was a generous serving. My husband had chocolate and I had java crunch, both fantastic. Their ice cream is quite a bit like real gelato...
