The hand-made ice cream here is delicious. The patrons were also very friendly. We got one (large!) scoop of ice cream in a chocolate covered sugar coned dish for around $5. This location is across from the Pier in Old Orchard Beach. I would recommend it for people of all ages.

Homemade Ice cream. We had the best Hot Fudge Brownie Sundae it was amazing!! Not stingy on the size and the amount of ice cream they serve.

We love their ice cream, its super dense and rich. We usually share a large hot fudge sundae between the three of us and its plenty. The only downfall there really isn't any place to sit down outside (and no seating inside whatsoever) other than two benches that quickly fill up.

The ice cream here was phenomenal. They have some interesting flavors including brownie batter and chocolate cake batter. The servings are large and the prices aren't too bad either

Black raspberry was great. Peanut butter cup and Kit Kat were disappointing - tasted like vanilla ice cream with chopped up candy thrown in.

This place is great! The kids wanted ice cream and we kept seeing people coming from the direction of big licks so we decided to check it out. We'll worth it. There are a ton of choices and all of had just 1 scoop and the kids and I could not finish it. The only negative was the the paper... More

We enjoyed a visit to Big Licks ice cream on vacation. Wow - the sundaes and cones were huge!!! My husband, myself and the kids all thought this place was pretty great. Would definitely be a return visit during our next vacation.

This place has the largest scoops of ice cream I have ever seen. You place your order with the cashier and then just wait for it to be scooped up which I felt moved the line a long nicely.

We definitely enjoyed the homemade ice cream, both nights we were there, as well as the large selection of flavors. Watch out, a large is really large!!
