“Best Ice Cream in Boothbay and BEST VALUE!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

This is the place to have your ice cream. Excellent selection -- can't think of a flavor they do not have. Make your own sundays. Low prices and generous portions. Cannot beat this place! Do not be turned-off by the line -- moves fast!

“Sundaes for all days!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Each one of the four of our group had ice cream. All different and all delicious. I especially enjoyed my banana split. Overall, great selections, flavors, great service and although busy not a long wait. Confession: we went three times in one week!

“This is dinner!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

You must come here! The ice cream is irresistible and there are many original flavor choices. I always get the coffee Heath Bar crunch in a chocolate dipped waffle cone. Each time we come to Boothbay Harbor, we skip dinner in favor of an enormous ice cream cone from Downeast. You'll still feel guilty, but it's worth it! If it's true that we only live once, make sure you try it!

“Exceptional!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The quality and quantity of the ice cream is incredible. All the flavors are made onsite - 50 or 60 to choose from. Terrific customer service even with a long line it's fast and courteous. I can't make up my mind which flavor I like best - French Vanilla, Chocolate Lover's, Mocha Chip, Orange Pineapple to name a few.
