This place is over rated! Me and my family go on a COLD day, order ice cream, and before we can even sit down, it's melted. Also, the price is outrageous. I know it's vacation, but 14$ for a banana split is insane. Go somewhere...else for your ice cream.More

The best ice cream! Great service, lines were quick, nice area to sit, close to Nubble Lighthouse. A must stop in the York area.

EXCELLENT ice cream!! We enjoyed ice cream along the coast of Maine, from York all the way to Bar Harbor, on a recent trip, and Dunne’s was EASILY the best of the lot. I especially loved the Maine Blueberry flavor. I would almost be tempted...to take another trip to Maine for this ice cream alone.More

Usually this is our go to spot—-something must have changed? I ordered the Reese’s Explosion and it had two minuscule pieces of peanut butter and two tiny Reese’s pieces—I went back to the window to ask the boy who waited on me and he said,...yea—there’s not much of anything in that flavor—it used to be delightfully full of candy—I just paid $6 for a basic bowl of vanilla ice cream 😩More

Great location with plenty of parking. CASH ONLY but there is an ATM available. The “kids” working there were all very friendly and helpful. Lots of flavor choices and the portions are huge but the price is reflective of that. Great for a splurge but...not something I would want to pay for on a daily basis.More

We went every night for a week. Great flavor selection and fun happy atmosphere. The portions are enormous. Watching little kids try and eat the cones was a joy.

This place is the best ice cream shop I have ever been to! Dan is the best and so patient! Great quality ice cream, helpful employees, and just a great place to stop before or after visiting Nubble Light! The whoopie pie flavor is amazing!...Thanks, Dan!More

Our family loves to visit the York Beach Cape Naddick Light house, which we call "The Nubble" ... a regular part of the visit it to stop and get ice cream. We were saddened when the usualy Ice Cream shop "Browns" had closed, but delighted...to find out that "Dunns" was open and very close to the Nubble, headed toward Short Sands. They had a great variety of ice cream, including my sister's favorite "checkerberry" and one of my favorites the Maple Walnut was delicious. IF you want a real treat get the "Brownie Sunday" it has a warm brownie with 3 scoops of your choice of ice cream and your choice of toppings... including the whip cream and a cherry or two on top! Thanks for my final ice cream of summer! PattyMore

Stopped here after lobster dinner at Fox’s. Even single cones have huge triple scoops of good ice cream. Lasted for the entire walk back to the center of Neddick/Main St.

Plenty of parking and seating. We enjoyed our ice cream here! Tried a ginger flavor actually and it was very refreshing! The wait when we were there was a little longer than what the reviews here say, but i think there were new people being...trained. We all have some patience especially for good ice cream.More

Excellent creamy ice cream featuring many flavors. What can be better than the taste of delicious ice cream and the smell of salt air. The perfect summer's treat.
