“Kimballs at Bates Farm great ice cream!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Incredibly hot today but plenty of shade here to enjoy a Kiddie ice cream. Which is more like a large at other ice cream stands. Don't miss this spot if you are in the Concord/Carlisle area.

“Very good ice cream, ENORMOUS servings.”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

As above. The "small" cone seemed to be much more than a pint.... order the kiddie size. Very good ice cream, lots of flavors.

“Carlisle Casual”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

The quality of the ice cream is a given, always good. The freshness is also very good, which is important when ordering ice cream with inclusions like nuts that will get soft in old ice cream. My favorite ice cream, Grape Nut, is awesome fresh. I try to put one hand packed quart (piled high above the rim or the container) away at the end of the year prior to stand closing. Kimball's also has a stand in Westford, the flagship, that includes lunch/dinner food, mini golf, bumper boats, etc. depending on your mood, these guys have you covered with great service and a quality product.

“Fantastic place, lots of fun but you will pay for it!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We love going to Kimballs. We go several times each summer. This location has mini golf (2 courses), an arcade, bumper boats, batting cages, a country store and serves food. They have rotating events like classic car shows and lawn concerts. It is a great place for my teenagers to hang out with their friends. Also, of course, they serve ice cream in good sized portions and it is delicious. The place is always well kept and there are plenty of staff to help if needed. They definitely take pride in their establishment. The arcade allows you to put money on a card and play many of the games to earn tickets which can be redeemed for prizes. Not all the games provide tickets, however. The place is fantastic but my criticism is, it is expensive. You can go through a good bit of cash in a short time here with your children. The food is decent - grill food and seafood. If you go, especially with kids, plan on parking in the lots across the street because it is a very busy place, and getting in and out will be easier. Bring extra money because you will probably need it. I always eat first and go for the activities and of course, the ice cream. Have fun!
