Many flavors, sundaes, banana splits, homemade hot fudge sauce!! Only open a few days a week off season, but well worth the trip.

Always make Big Daddy's a highlight of our annual vacations in Wells. Any thing you could think of -you can have! Love their chocolate ice cream sodas with Choc Chip ice cream. Stop by and try them out.

Local recommendation delivered in spades. Given there are over 50 flavours suggest a tasting paddle to try 5 or 10 flavours.
