Great place to get you ice cream fix on. They are not shy on the serving size, more than most places, and a lot more flavor. Order at one window get a number pick up at the other with plenty of places to sit and enjoy.

Such interesting flavors it's hard to choose. I got coconut and dark chocolate with walnuts in a waffle cone - couldn't believe the rich creaminess of their hard scoop ice cream. Tried one of the more famous ice creams in downtown Bar Harbor and found it not nearly as flavorful but a lot more expensive.

One of you has excellent taste and we hope we get the chance to push the other over the top another time. Just one clarification on price.

Thank you for visiting with us and in particular recognizing our hard working staff. However, we haven't shared this review with Udderella. We are afraid to tell her that she is made of wood, she might go mad! Hope she and our team get to serve you again. Bob More

There are three good reasons to try Udder Heaven: 1. It's outside the main strip in Bar Harbor which makes parking a little less of a challenge (although the lot does fill up) 2. The ice cream is as good as any other place on the island and costs a little less than any of the 3 most popular places... More

You know every once in awhile there comes a review that hits all the bases important to a customer and a business owner. Quality - Price - Service. (Location of course) There are direct lines between the quality of the core ice cream product and our pricing to me. Customer Service and Product Presentation are clearly in the wings and... More

So two ladies hike off thousands of calories at Acadia National Park. What do they do next. We wanted to eat one of each lovely item on the menu. We narrowed it down to two. I had a whoopie pie stuffed with raspberry chocolate chip frozen yogurt. She had a heath bar caramel sundae. Everyone eating their ice cream had... More

I see you have the Spartan approach to your ice cream. Hard work then the reward. Others I know take a more Athenian approach by having the ice cream first and then "allegedly" attacking the trails. Either way, thank you for joining us here in Heaven. We hope your days are filled with many hikes and much joy! Bob More

they are not skimpy on their toppings. My husband had a hot fudge sundae and couldn't finish the fudge. Wonderfully delicious.

We stopped at the newer location on Rt 102 (I believe?). The banners out front caught our eye on the way back to Seawall campground one day so we decided to stop the next day on our way home from a hike. Lots of great flavors to choose from and the regular size was PLENTY for each of us. Imagine... More

Thank you for visiting Mainely Heaven. We just opened that location in July so it has been a work in progress. We make our ice cream in Bar Harbor at Udder Heaven and ship it over. Your feedback is most appreciated. We hope you find your way to Acadia again and look forward to serving you once more. More
