“Great Ice Cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

There is always a line (except in rainy or foggy times) at this ice cream establishment. They have a great selection of wonderful ice cream with a variety of selections. I like the chococlate dipped waffle cone with one scoop - which is all anyone could possibly eat. The one scoop is huge. We always have ice cream at this establishment while visiting Boothbay. It is a tradition we will not plan on stopping!!!

It was great, lots of options. Located right near everything, sometimes the line was super long.
Great price too....

“Big line? There's a good reason!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

A small cone is huge! Delicious ice cream in an old fashioned ice cream parlor. Huge selection of flavored and awesome prices. That's the reason people line out the door for this place! Don't worry. They serve fast!

“Delicious ice cream and frozen yogurt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is a very popular place to get ice cream. We waited on line about 10 minutes to get our ice cream. I tried the loaded chocolate frozen yogurt and my husband had dark chocolate ice cream. We both really liked our desserts.

Many favors, generous servings. Ice cream served to individual taste! Great value! Crowded but line moved quickly.
