They have a long line but it moved fast. There were many flavors to choose from and the ice cream was very good.

Stopped here twice - even the sugar free is fantastic. Good thing we don't have one close to our home in Florida - we would be in trouble. Sooo good and there were no lines!

The line was long so I figured it had to be a great ice cream shop. They have an impressive selection of ice cream and other goodies so it shouldn't be difficult to find something that you like. I had pistachio nut ice cream in a chocolate-dipped waffle cone. Definitely a splurge from my normal eating routine, but it was well worth it. The ice cream is delicious. NOTE: they only accept cash.

We regularly vacation in the Boothbay Region and the Ice Cream Factory aka Downeast Ice Cream is a place we often frequent as a family due to location, reasonable pricing, quality, portion size, and service. This summer we have noticed something very clear from past years: Portion sizes have been smaller and the service is unfriendly. It is apparent that cashiers and servers, young teenagers, perhaps of high school and college age, simply don't like being there and display their dispeasure openly. This has been true on multiple occasions so it is not an aberration this summer. If you want a treat that has become smaller, and service with a scowl then this is your place. There are other alternatives such as Sarah's Scoops that have the portion size and friendly service that used to be a trademark of the Boothbay Ice Cream Factory.
