“Delicious!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

They don't have too many flavors but, what they have, is absolutely delicious! Their Wild Maine Blueberry ice cream is very delicious.

“Great homemade ice cream”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Bar Harbor is home away from home for my wife and I and like most people we would go to the two ice cream places that were near the middle of town. This one is a little further down the road so we never bothered. Well after seeing President Obama go there with his family, my wife and I decided to check out. Thank God we did. It's the best homemade ice cream we've ever had. We both had orange chocolate. This was a few years ago and my wife still won't stop talking about it. The flavors change and they are always creative and delicious.

“Amazing flavors”
Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

Our family enjoyed the fresh peach and salty caramel with handmade chocolate chunks flavors. My husband is not the biggest ice cream fan and he practically inhaled his scoop! I tried their plum sorbet mixed with club soda. I believe it's called a chiller? So delicious and extremely refreshing on a hot day. You must stop here and, at the very least, just read the flavors! So different and so delicious!
