This place looked great, lots of interesting flavors. Unfortunately, my $5 cone was full of freezer burn and my apple pie ice cream was pretty bland. Waffle cone was good though!

So many choices and great price. This location was on our way back to our cottage from the park. While it was always busy the lines moved quick. We had ice cream on several nights here during our visit.

A multitude of flavors and a delicious product - very creamy and full of flavor. We tried ice cream at other shops, but this was the best!

We have visited this spot on both our trips to Bar Harbor and it's great every time! Blueberry, whoopie pie and blueberry cheese cake are some our favorites! Blueberry pie is delicious and prices are good!!

The good not much. I was not loving the taste of either flavor I had. Please look elsewhere for your money.

Udder Heaven is a great place for ice cream. Lots of flavors to choose from. Plenty of seating to enjoy your ice cream. All in all great spot. My only suggestion would be to do away with the order and pick up system. While we were there we saw a few order mix ups. People not knowing what number they... More

If you want good ice cream for good prices outside of Bar Harbor village, away from all the crowds. This was a nice place to sit and enjoy your ice cream at reasonable prices..

This is a popular place for ice cream on a warm summer night. There are lots of flavors to choose from and options such as cones, sundaes and milkshakes. Though there might be a line, service is quick and friendly.

Nice of you to post your experience. I am particularly pleased when customers recognize the service. Most times, the "angels" make our treats fly out the window pretty quickly and accurately. They check TA regularly so thank you again. Bob More
