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.

Oh my. I scream you scream we all scream for ice cream. Delicious ice cream and great location. Plenty of parking and the young man who waited on us was so nice and pleasant. We will be back.

Amazing place! Dan, the guy who helped us was amazing and incredibly patient with 3 ladies who wanted to try everything and couldn’t make a decision. I have never had ice cream this good before. The butter pecan was amazing! The tornado flavor was excellent...and after it was all said and done, I should’ve got the whoopie pie because it actually had buttercream frosting in it! I can’t wait to go back when I return in October! I sooooo hope you’re open then as I want a scoop of whoopie pie and butter pecan! Thanks Dan, for humoring us! Your patience, knowledge of all the flavors and the ingredients was very impressive! Don’t ever change…you guys rock! You are open in October, aren’t you?More

We stopped after a visit to see Nubble Light, since we were planning to have a late dinner. Hubby said the Frozen Pudding was delicious; my black raspberry was very good, as well. The person who took our order was very friendly and offered my...husband a cup for his ice cream cone, as he said the Frozen Pudding was a bit soft.More

Have stopped by every couple of years to grab a cone & walk out toward the Nubble Lighthouse. Never disappoints!

Just up the road from Fox's Lobster House is this slightly hidden off-the-road gem. It's safe to say they offer just about an endless selection of ice cream flavors, they have a few sherbert flavors and soft serve. The Black Raspberry and Coffee Oreo ice...cream flavors were our choices and no disappointment here! If you want only a small portion, order a small...even though it's larger than other ice cream places, it's a good option. Price-wise, it's quality ice cream, you get what you pay for and their prices are equal to the quality. It was near the end of the season, but the window folks were as friendly and didn't fail to thank you for the tip left. as if it were opening day,More

We grabbed some ice cream here after visiting Nubble Lighthouse. The staff was very pleasant and and ice cream was excellent! They had plenty of fun Maine-themed specialty flavors to choose from. You could still see the ocean and the lighthouse from the ice cream...stand. There is parking available and it is cash only.More

A nice ice cream stand near the Nubble. It can get crowded on the weekends and auxiliary parking down the road makes for a walk along a narrow, busy road. Many choices and have never been disappointed.

This is a very popular ice cream spot. It is very attractive. The lines are usually long. I found the ice cream to be good ice cream, worth the stop, but nothing special.

Just up the street from Fox's... had to stop in for a highly touted ice cream. Stood in line trying to figure out what to order - so many choices. Ice cream is huge and delicious... did I say huge? 2 flavors can only be...gotten in a medium cup or larger. Big parking lots with people holding cups, cones , sundaes ,.... and everyone had a smile on their faces! Great stopMore

As recommended to us, we grab some ice cream at dunes and went back to the lighthouse to enjoy it there. My daughter ordered “Graham it” and I had the Maine sea salt caramel with fudge on top. Scrumptious.

Located in York Beach, we took a detour before going on the highway back to Connecticut. What's not to like here? Being a kid again? There were so many yummy flavors to choose from we finally selected their Maine Sea Salt Caramel Truffle flavor which...was creamy and tasty. Service was friendly and efficientMore
