Went here with my fiancé. I got two scoops of butter pecan in a waffle cone, and it was pretty good ice cream. She got a "Cereal Flurry", which was soft serve blended with Lucky Charms and Fruity Pebbles. My recommendation is stick with the...More

The ice cream is very rich and creamy. The serving size is large and reasonably priced. The selections include some rarely found flavors like blueberry.

I was rather disappointed with the ice cream I got here. I got the salted caramel, which didn't seem to have any caramel in it. Also, I got a scoop of the Kahlua Fudge and couldn't taste any Kahlua. I don't think I will go...More

Portand is a favorite weekend vacationing area for us. I am pretty sure we've tried all the ice-cream in the city and this is the best. The inside could use updating, but it's a go-to.

Worth the wait - almost always a long line - for good reason - enjoy your wait and enjoy your ice cream treat - good quality and good size - service is pretty good also - no inside seating.

Stopped in Beals during a Canadian cruise. Wonderful ice cream, nice area to enjoy it as well. When we are in Portland again this will be a definite stop.

Hadn't had Beal's delicious dairy delights in several years since my last visit to Portland. This most recent purchase confirmed my belief that a visit to the city isn't complete without a stop to this shop for any ice cream lover. The flavors, texture and...More

This is a nice place, with amazing smells coming out of it. However we were disappointed with the chocolate ice creams. We tried the regular chocolate and the German Fudge and they both tasted like Blue Cheese! We’re not sure if this is a bad...More
