“Best ice cream in Maine!”
Reviewed July 8, 2011

We were in Maine for our honeymoon and staying in Wells we were told by a local to check out Big Daddy's for ice cream one night. We ended up going back every single night - 5 times! Big Daddy's is by far the best ice cream we had on our trip - and we sampled a lot! They have a ton of flavors to choose from, all sizes and types - blueberry, coconut, caramel, sundaes, milkshakes. 3 different kinds of cones and the portions are huge! The building is very clean and looks new. The staff are very friendly and very quick with your order. There are walk up order windows out front and a large dining area inside with order windows as well. One thing to note is that they only take cash, but there's an ATM inside. Every night that we went, the place was packed with people. You've got to try it!!

Big Daddy's is a great example of traditional ice cream. The atmosphere is great for the family, the ice cream is all homemade and is AMAZING, huge portions for the price! The employees are outstanding, all great kids- always smiling. The owners are very kind people always working hard.
