Homemade ice cream at its best. Don't expect to get in an out of there quickly on a hot summer day. Everyone in town is in line getting this great creamy treat. So many different flavors (still waiting for licorice) that you can't go wrong. Bring cash though. No debit or credit cards accepted.

Best ice cream store and ice cream for miles around. Love going to Butterfields especially with the family.

We enjoy going to this family owned eatery. The food is very good. The homemade ice cream variety is extensive and delicious! I recommend Butterfield's!

We saw that this had been rated "best ice cream in central Maine" so we decided to give it a try. So did everyone else! EVERY SINGLE TIME that we went there, early or late, the parking lot was full. The ice cream is delicious, the people are friendly, prices are reasonable but the big secret is that they also... More

We stopped for ice cream and the selection, quality, service and price were very good. They also offered other basket type food items.

Seeing that they won the 2016 Down Easter Award for Best Ice Cream is what drew me in. I purchased two flavors, their Grapenut and Vanilla Heath Bar. My favorite of the two goes to the Vanilla Heath Bar. I guess I'll just have to try other flavors and see how they are. Bring a professional ice cream taster is... More

I've been going here since I was a kid and it just gets better and better every year. The owners are just as sweet as their ice cream! I always get either bubble gum or grape nut! It's a very real,flavorful, creamy, smooth ice cream. Definitely one of the best home made ice cream shops in the state!

Four of us stopped here for lunch. Fish fry was great. Burger on lettuce just ok (gluten free person this was one of only choices). Highlight was the ice cream for dessert! Yum!!!

Sorry to say that the ice cream wasn't worth the very long wait in line on Labor Day. We found the flavor to be rather bland (butter brickle & moosetracks). One plus was the congenial server and another was that their kiddie size truly was small. We often find ourselves eating more than we actually want at an ice cream... More
