We loved Captain Sam's! We recommend the salty caramel and the blueberry. There's a tiny cone called a Sammy that's perfect for kids. The small cone was also a generous portion. The artwork and decor was adorable and staff was very sweet to my two girls and friendly to all of us even with it close to closing time. This visit was the perfect end to a Sunday in Portland.

From the alligator (statue) holding a cone outside to the array of flavors, Captain Sam's home made ice creams make one want to order a quadruple cone, if such a thing is doable. Located along the waterfront, it's convenient to cruise passengers as well as locals

I love Captain Sam's and bring foodie tours in here to sample the sheer talent of Karen Morgan and her kids! They create the most interesting flavors, so unique, you just never know what you are going to find. Treat yourself. It's just fun.

I stopped at Captain Sam's yesterday, while enroute to Peak's Island. After sampling a couple of flavors, I settled on a vanilla/bourbon/chocolate chip/pecan icecream. I'm from Vermont, home to Ben and Jerry's. I can be pretty picky about my icecream, but this was delicous. The young lady who waited on us (Patricia?) would make a great tour guide. She lives on Peak's Island and was happy to answer our questions about island life.

In summary, it was delicious ice cream and friendly service.

Was delicious! My partner had coffee Heath bar and both were exceptional. The ice cream was homemade with fresh ingredients. I cream lovers were very happy.
