Camping in Old Orchard during the weekend of May 14th-16th, 2021 and we’re looking for a place nearby to get ice cream from. Our favorites are “Fielders Choice” in Old Orchard and “Bayley’s” in Scarborough but we decided to go here instead. There were three...people (counting me) in our group. Only One of them had gotten ice cream here before. Ice cream is served through a window outside so you didn’t need to be worried about COVID, designated entrance and exit for social distancing, tape to stand on to social distance while waiting in line, and employees are masked and gloved. Many interesting flavors to choose from. I got “Fluffenuter” and it was really good. It tasted like an actual Fluffenuter sandwich!. Location is fantastic! You can see Funtown from the picnic tables and The Eastern Trail, Dunegrass, our campground, Old Orchard and Scarborough are only a couple miles away. Great place to stop for ice cream to cool off after a bike ride, practice on the mini golf course before heading to Dunegrass, and a great place to go for ice cream and/or mini golf after a long day at Funtown. I hope to come back this summer for more ice cream and maybe even play some mini golf.More

Before Covid 19, you could enjoy your Ice Cream inside, where there are tables and a Juke Box that features hits from the 60's. Their Ice Cream is to die for; very creamy, great taste and lots to choose from. We are campers and always...bring home some of their containers of our favorite flavors. Also, they make their own Waffle Cones; best we ever had from Maine to California.More

Finally made it to Martel's this season, and had been looking forward to going as they had a very delayed opening due to COVID-19. I have been going here for years, and always got their frozen yogurt flavors as I'm unable to have regular ice...cream. I was so disappointed to learn they didn't have any frozen yogurt flavors this season. I asked why and was told that they weren't big sellers. I understand as businesses have to appeal to the masses, especially this year. I'm hoping they'll bring back the frozen yogurt flavors at some point. But for now, I'll go elsewhere since there are very limited options for me here.More

Went twice during the holiday weekend! Both times I got a kiddie sized, which was more than enough for me. Martel's has many original flavors and a great variety. And for those who can't/choose not to eat ice cream they have other options, but the...flavors are more limited. They have sherbet, frozen yogurt, sugar free flavors, and a non-dairy coconut based treat. I've only had the frozen yogurt (the purple cookie fro-yo is my fav), so I don't know how the other options match up. But there is definitely something for everyone. They also have a little restaurant attached that serves various forms of Italians at very reasonable prices. (For those of you unfamiliar, Italians are a type of sub sandwich that is popular with Mainers). They also sell homemade fudge too. And to wash it all down, you can buy a bottle of water for less than a buck. Pretty unheard of in this area so it's a great deal. Definitely worth a stop in if you're in the area.More

A sign outside beckons you to eat ice cream and play mini-golf, so what's not to like? The ice cream was very good and the flavor variety interesting and tempting. Good place to stop if you want a quick cone or dish.

I didn't expect much from an ice cream place that's part of a miniature golf course, but a friend recommended it. I got my usual 'test-kitchen' flavors, the chocolate and coffee, and they were very good -- nice flavor, creamy. The seating on the front...porch is a nice touch.More

This place has the best homemade ice-cream at reasonable prices for family. I loved the vanilla grapenut. My wife loved the chocolate almond. Grandkids loved whatever they ordered. lol
