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.

Great ice cream for the kids, fantastic original mixtures of ice cream and candies as well as delicious yogurt options make this a "must stop" on your next trip near or to Bridgton or Naples Maine!

I've come here many many times over the years. The girls who run the show here are awesome...with adults and kids. there are tables and chairs, umbrella'd tables and area to walk/pace and eat your ice cream wondering what flavor you'll try next hahahaha... Friendly service, gargantuan scoops/servings and delicious flavors. My favorite flavor is the Lemon Merengue Pie! Oh... More

The ice cream is great — there's a good variety of flavors. The only food I've had there so far is the fried dough balls, which are amazing! I'd definitely recommend to anyone looking for a tasty treat. (The food's probably good too)

Stopping for a lunch at The Gazebo is a must every time we visit Bridgton. Friendly staff, good food and great ice cream. And we just love the building itself. A true landmark for the town.

The Gazebo is a MUST STOP if you are going through Bridgton. They have all the classics like lobster rolls, fried clams and soft serve. It is a seasonal restaurant so make sure you check online if you are going during the off season!

The Gazebo has been one of my favorites for many years. The texture and consistency of their soft serve ice cream is out of this world. They also have a large selection of scooped ice cream as well, but I prefer the soft stuff. Their staff are young and friendly. It's strictly window service, but that's ok by me. There... More

Kids needed a mid day ice cream stop and we didn't feel like driving to Dairy Bar in Naples (which we really like). Local people and a local dining spot we really like suggested the gazebo. Good Flavors, friendly service, and best of all, they have heathbar as a topping. They shut down in September for the season so hurry... More

Great ice cream, good variety of food, fair prices, friendly service! Only problem I have is that is can get SO crowded that there's nowhere to park. But otherwise it's my favorite ice cream joint in Bridgton!
