“Best ice cream ever”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

I don't know that I would share this hyperbole (I don't eat ice cream), but all of my grandchildren their friends, teen age guests, and ice-cream eating adults swear this is the best ice cream they've ever had. Most common claims: Perfect texture, perfect temperature, not too sweet. It also helps that it is a main attraction in this small lakeside town, and one that must be experienced to say that you really visited Wolfeboro.

“There is a reason that Ben and Jerry's never survived up the street”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

This is hometown ice cream at its best. The ice cream is always delicious, but the Bubble takes "the secret's in the sauce" to a whole new level. Bailey's has been doing it right for years and all of the family recipes for the hot fudge, penuche sauce, etc. AND the service are what has made it what it is today. I save up all of my opportunities to eat ice cream when I'm in Wolfeboro, sometimes even going daily. Summer wouldn't be the same without it. Don't be mistaken. This is not an old fashioned ice cream shop with juke boxes and roller skating waitresses, but it is a staple of Wolfeboro. Go eat your ice cream by the water while unknowing fools wait in line at the place by the docks for their mediocre ice cream.

“A local institution”
Reviewed November 13, 2011

Once upon a time, there were two Bailey's restaurants in Wolfeboro and these were very much a staple of the summer vacation. Sadly these have gone, but there is still the Bubble which is a great place for good walk about ice cream.

“This is a take out ice cream place, not a restaurant!”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

Ice cream you can buy in a grocery store. Long lines of desperate tourists. Why it's listed as a restaurant is strange since it has not a drop of healthy food, just empty calories.
