“Udder Heaven!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Ice cream was AhMazing! Truly enjoyed this tasty treat twice during our stay after trying a few other ice cream joints- we had ice cream almost every night during our stay. Open late till 10pm with cute porch for sitting outside.
Hard serve and brownie Sunday were delightful. Very accommodating when someone stole our order ending in remake then full refund.
We watched them make fresh cookies and cream by hand. We even got a taste for free - 10 of us all got to try.
Pricey but worth it!

“Excellent Portions!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

What we ordered: Medium Peanut Butter Hard-Serve in a dish ($4.44) Medium Blueberry Cheesecake Hard-Serve in a Chocolate Dipped Waffle Cone ($5.84) Extra Thick Chocolate Frappe ($5.84).
The ice-cream quality was pretty good... although a bit ice-y (chunks of ice mixed in... possibly stored for too long?). The PB was the best, sweet with swirls of salty peanut butter. The Medium was HUGE and the most pathetic excuse for a spoon that I've ever tried to eat Hard-Serve with. The Blueberry Cheesecake was good, but the blueberries were a bit dry - the cheesecake chunks made up for it though with a nice NY Style lemony bite - the dipped cone was EXCELLENT! (Totally worth the extra $1.40) The Extra Thick Chocolate Frappe was very sad... you would think the Chocolate Ice Cream would be good enough to just mix with a little milk in a blender and serve... but they completely ruined it with massive amounts of NASTY chocolate syrup... possibly even making it out of bland vanilla soft-serve with no chocolate flavor beyond the syrup? NOT WORTH the $5.84 price tag!
I may possibly give it another shot... although there are SO MANY ice cream shops on MDI that I probably won't.... but if we do... It would be a SMALL in a DIPPED WAFFLE CONE... stick with the popular flavors since those will be the freshest. :)

“Walk-up ice cream bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

There was a restaurant attached to the ice cream bar, but we had already eaten. The ice cream bar offered a lot of flavors. Ordering a small cone, I got more than i could eat and had to have help to finish it. I can definitely say that you get value for the money when you buy ice cream here. There were some outdoor seats but most people elected to stand around or sit in their cars.

“Don't go into Down Town Bar Harbor for your ice cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Go here instead! It's out of town but much better than any you get in town. Go out to the patio for the view of the waterfalls. You'll understand wht I mean when you do so. They have neat little items out on the lawn & when asked about them they said I could purchase it there. Unfortunately there were no prices & the girl working the counter tried calling her boss who she couldn't reach so we couldn't purchase anything. The ice cream is all home made we were told. We'll be back next time we visit the area.
