The Gazebo is under new ownership this year and the changes have been positive. Please remember to bring cash because they do not accept credit/ debit cards. The in house flavors are everything you would expect and then some! The hard ice cream, soft serve, frappes, shakes and sundaes are all great! In addition to those items they also serve... More

My son with allergies asked if they could use a clean scoop, he was told no. He could get soft serve only. Asking for a fresh scoop shouldn't be an unreasonable request. Won't be back.

Great ice cream! Great prices! Nice atmosphere outside! Friendly service! What's not to love? I've been coming here since I can remember. The "dirty water " espresso based ice cream with dark chocolate was to die for! The Gazebo keeps getting better!

As a camp counselor, one of my favorite things to do on nights off was to go into Bridgton for ice cream. Every time I visited the Gazebo, I got the wonderful Lemon meringue pie ice cream. The texture of the ice cream perfectly balances the rich texture of good ice cream with the texture of the lemon filling in... More

Stopped in based on the recommendation of the owners of the cabin we rented. Ample portions were perfect considering it was ice cream for dinner. My pumpkin pie flavored cup was fantastic. Hubby's hot fudge sundae with soft serve vanilla hit the spot. Friendly service and good seating options. Probably a good thing we were only in the area for... More

The ice cream is delicious! A little on the pricy side but worth it. Big selection of goodies to try. Yum.

Simply a must do for that classic summer in Maine family vibe. Never fails to deliver great ice cream .... Even my long-lost fave Cherry Dip vanilla soft-serve!

Not only does this roadside stand serve large portions of delicious ice cream (scoops and soft-serve) but they have a wonderful lobster roll, fried clams, and other food. Order your food at the window, find a spot at a picnic table among the pines, and enjoy a lunch, evening, or whatever you want. It's throwback to a simpler time.
