Of all the ice cream places in Bar Harbor this is by far the best. We sampled other places that were not as creamy. Line is long but worth it.

Lots of different choices of flavours of both ice cream and gelato. Loved that their cups are advertised as properly recyclable unlike some plastics.

This place was always packed every night we walked by so we decided to try it. It has an overwhelming selection of chocolates and treats along with ice cream. My wife is gluten free and she was able to find a good selection to choose...More

This place has an outrageous selection of ice cream flavors. I tried the lobster ice cream just to say that I did. But as far as I am concerned, lobster does not taste good frozen. I much prefered the ginger ice cream which was exceptional....More

If you like ice cream, this is a "must visit" place. Huge number of ice cream flavors, including weird ones like lobster. It's also a candy shop. Enjoy!

We stopped in, had a sample of Lobster Ice Cream. It was good. We stopped in another day, my husband enjoyed a Lobster Ice Cream Cone, I had a Macadamia Coconut Ice Cream Cone, Enjoyed it a lot.

The selection of ice cream and gelato at this place is amazing. Don't be put off by the long line - it moves fast and the service is great. They are open pretty late and we went twice after dinner during our Memorial Day weekend...More

The ice cream sundae and chocolate that we purchased here was great, but the fudge was just average. There is another store that sells fudge in town and it was much better. The ice cream sundaes are huge and delicious though.

This place is like a step back in time...old fashion ice cream counter and chocolate confectionary. We visited here the last Saturday in October and it was freezing cold weather, but there was a line for ice cream, so doesn't that tell you, this place...More
