Great regular flavors, and the specials are the best. Ask for "Maine Mud" to get my favorite! Their sandwiches are also great. And, hey, you can relax with a round of mini-golf in the back! A great place to just stop driving by, or a destination. I go for both!

Too expensive for what we got. 4 milkshakes and a small ice cream came to over $25. + they were asking for tips. The shakes were kind of thin (I ordered medium) not sure if that's normal. They also don't accept debit cards... Another $2 ATM fee. Meh. Should've just gone to grocery store and saved $20 by making my... More

Had a very nice experience here. I got the mocha chip in a waffle cone and my wife got the peanut butter with chocolate fudge. Both were outstanding! Even grabbed a frozen banana before we left, since I hadn't had one in years. The staff were friendly and very quick. Definitely a must-stop.

Proud to review this place! THE BEST ice cream, hands down! Eat on site, or take a quart to go! (I did both!) Locally made, hand packed, creamy goodness just waiting to be enjoyed by locals and tourists alike! If you love ice cream, DO NOT miss this stop! Route 1 in Saco, very near to Funtown/Splashtown amusement park.

I love going to Martel's for icecream. I love going to Martel's on my way home from babysitting. I love going to Martel's any time. Their fudge is great but their ice cream is out of this world. The banana ice cream is second to not. The banana yogurt is also excellent. I love the hot fudge parfait when I... More

I stop here several times a year..always a smile no matter how busy they are..the taste is one to be desired and to remembered. Most ice cream places charge so much and you get so little, but not here

This is up on Rte. 1, about 5 miles from the rental houses in Saco, Old Orchard and Pine Point. Great ice cream. Highly recommend. You'd need to drive by car. It's across from Funtown USA theme park

This place had good ice cream but when an employee hands you your ice cream with an exposed cut on her finger thats bleeding and you say something so they go and make you a new one but after they scoop the one you just complained about back into the container. Thanks but no thanks. Maybe teach your staff a... More

I have been going here for years and the ice cream is always the best and if you are looking for a cheap sandwich come here the blt, ham and cheese only $5 and get an ice cream after steps away from the fun town and all the car dealers if you need a car
