We tried this place only once. Their ice cream is very good, but almost twice as expensive as their competition.

Do you love ice cream like I do? If so, THIS is the place to go! This is indeed blasphemy to my Texas roots and beloved Blue Bell, but the Wild Maine Blueberry ice cream is, arguably, the best ice cream I have ever had, and that's saying a lot. It's local and organic, which to many is a turn... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our cones on a recent warm day. This is the real deal! Locally made, fresh ingredients, lots of choices. Not your typical ice cream, but much better!

My husband and I recently visited this little gem. The ice cream was awesome. We had the bananas foster and blueberry ice creams; yum, not too sweet with farm fresh ingredients. We might have gotten more for our money at Downeast Ice Cream, but we didn't get better. Downeast Ice Cream was way too sweet in comparison. It's quality over... More

We stopped into Finn McCools because of all the comments here. There certainly is no shortage of ice cream shops in Maine! The choices were plentiful. I had the fresh Maine blueberry and my husband had something with coffee and brandy flavors. We both thought our selections were too sweet. Service was friendly and quick. You can try a sample...

OMG ice cream was creamy & delicious - a real treat. We sat outdoors on the two benches & people-watched.

You can find ice cream on almost any block in any seaside town in the US, but if you are on the Maine coast, hold out for Finn McCool's in Boothbay. This is the ice cream of your dreams, or, if you had the good fortune to grow up with a dairy nearby, your childhood memories of what ice cream... More

we got the lo-down on just how fresh this ice-cream is. local producer - gets milk from organic dairy farm next door, gets blueberries, blackberries and raspberries form local farms only when they are in season. when the ice-cream is gone you wait until net season. I got the dbl scoop blueberry/raspberry and LOVED it. Blueberry shakes are the BOMB!... More
