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.

We all loved our ice cream - just wish some of the flavors had a few more stir-ins. There was a line here but it moved quickly. Just a reminder, it's cash only, and it does have an ATM on site.

Great ice cream and staff. The best icecream soda you will ever have. When in Maine I go at least three times.

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