I did manage a stop here and I make an effort every year to come here. Butter pecan ice-cream is the best!

Stopped in for after dinner ice cream for dessert with the kids. We ordered large ice cream cones, I wish someone would have warned us about the serving size. The ice cream servings were insanely huge. Delicious and tasty but way too big of a...serving for one person. But definitely the ice cream spot to stop at while I’m York Maine ....More

Lots of flavors but not an overwhelming list. I find it annoying when there are flavor names that give you no clue what you're getting. When we've been there in the past I seem to remember them having a laminated sheet explaining what some of...the flavors were. Probable can't do now because too hard to sanitize. That is my only complaint which isn't big enough to take away from an excellent rating. Our group had wild Maine blueberry, Maine salted caramel truffle and butter pecan. All were excellent. No ice chunks from water left on the scoop. That combined with smooth, creamy flavor and excellent service makes this place a winner.More

After a hot day around the beach, I was ready for something ice cold. Being within a mile of Dunne's Ice Cream, I chose that as the place to go for a frozen treat. A lot of other people had the same idea at the...same time I did, so it was busy. While waiting, I looked over the extensive menu of flavors. There were over 50 flavors of regular and sugar-free hard-serve, five frozen yogurts, and five sherbets. There were smoothies and soft serve as well. Chocolate Extreme, Danish Cream, and Chocolate Walnut were under serious consideration; however, I was curious about Black Raspberry Explosion. When it was my turn, I inquired. It was Black Raspberry Ice Cream with small Black Raspberry-Filled Chocolate Cordial Cups. I ultimately chose a small cup of the Black Raspberry Explosion. It was $5.25 with 9% NH Meals Tax. I took an umbrella table in the seating area. The flavor of black raspberries was somewhat intense. When broken open, the raspberry filling inside the chocolate cups burst with even more raspberry flavor. The ice cream was appropriately named. I really enjoyed this ice cream. It was quite different from what I usually get. And, the bonus is that one has a completely unobstructed view of Cape Neddick Light, popularly known as The Nubble. And, do look up at the weathervane which features an ice cream cone as a bearing. Normally, my highest rating for fast food is 4.50; but, this ice cream was so exception that I rate my experience at Dunne's Ice Cream at 5.0. I highly recommend a visit here.

Dunne's was in a convenient location after our mini road trip to see the Nubble Lighthouse. After leaving a packed parking lot we wanted a quick snack and we found the ice cream stand not even a mile away from the Nubble parking lot. Parking...was plentiful on the day we visited and they are taking extra safety precautions during the pandemic. There are lines on the floor promoting social distancing and everyone was wearing masks. I can only imagine how busy they were before the pandemic because they are in a prime location. We both ordered ice cream and the quality was perfect. I ordered a "Small" Black Raspberry cone and it was difficult to eat due to the large size. But, for the portion you get the pricing is cheap. My husband also enjoyed his Chocolate Oreo Mousse ice cream but I found it to be too rich in flavor. A bonus to their location is the view of the Nubble Lighthouse from the seating area. This area is gorgeous and the service is friendly. We will be back if we are ever in the area.More

There were several employees on staff but only two windows being used. The ice cream was very good, as usual.
