“The Best Ice Cream, Period”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We stopped here the first time when the main road was under construction, and we were desperate to eat something. I'm so glad we did, otherwise we may never have discovered this gem!
The food is pretty standard, and did its job.
But the ice cream.... These guys make their own ice cream in about a million different flavors. They'll let you taste anything you want, so you can figure out what flavor mood you're in. I've tried at least a dozen flavors since 2007, and all of them have been delicious. The people are always friendly and helpful, and you feel like you're among friends. Outdoor seating only, but you can sit within the screened off area if it's a buggy time of day. Otherwise, there's a lovely lawn leading down to a small pond with picnic tables and adirondack chairs everywhere.
I will always go back!

“Idyllic!”
Reviewed 21 July 2013 via mobile

we stopped at this place after visiting Acadia National Park. it was amazing! we had the special that was lobster roll and french fries. The lobster roll was ok. We also had the blueberry pie a lamode with walnut maple ice cream for dessert. This was the best ice cream and pie we have ever had. They make their own ice cream in a lot of flavors. I highly recommend this place. Especially for families. They have a big lawn area with picnic tables, Adirondack chairs, swings, etc. Very pretty setting. Just what you would expect from Maine.

“Loved the onion rings :)”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

We stopped here for a quick snack on the way home from Bar Harbor one day, and I ordered a small onion ring and a pepsi. Let me tell you, those were probably the best onion rings I have ever had!! for a small place on the side of the road you sure do make good onion rings! good job guys!!!!!

“It's closed!”
Reviewed 23 June 2013 via mobile

Loved stopping at this place for a quick bite during our annual family sojourn to MDI. We read a sign stating "Closed due to circumstances beyond our control." Anyone know if they are planning on re opening?

“Pretty Flowers and Great Hot Dogs”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

We had a snack of hot dogs and fries. I liked the hot dogs but I cannot comment on much else. Service was flawed but quick and there was ample place for our party to sit and eat on the porch. Beautiful flowers planters.
