Great place to stop and get a sweet treat, or grab yourself a hot dog, chips and an ice cream. Great views of the mighty Kennebec river and this place is a staple in the community

I've been going here since I was a kid. Beautiful spot along the Kennebec river. No indoor seating but benches and tables with good view of the river. Access can be a little tricky (getting in and out of traffic) but not overly so. Good ice cream, good service, good prices!

This is a great place to get soft or hard serve ice cream and even a burger! Nice size portions and picnic tables at the edge of the Kennebec River.

It's a nice place to eat some of your favorite ice cream flavors. You can enjoy your icecream and sit on a picnic table and look out on the water. Cool off with your icecream and enjoy the scenery

We prefer to avoid big national (or international) chain restaurants and try to support independent places when eating out. The location of this little place is so unique that it is the second time I have given it a chance to please. The gal was unfriendly (unusual for Maine.)The hot dogs were the absolute WORSE I have ever eaten. Should... More

I rode in to an empty parking lot. I had to think and reaffirm that I did indeed see an open sign out front. Walking, I reached the half way point. At one moment, mid-stride, I was about fifteen feet from my car behind me, and the order/pickup window ahead. At that moment I noticed a figure in the dimly... More

This stand located on the island between the north and south sides of town has both soft serves and gourmet-quality hard serves. The service makes this fun, and just do not jump in your car to eat - sit at the tables along the river bank and lick that cone slowly, enjoying your time, place and company!

Average ice cream, but at a reasonable price. Service is friendly and consistent. Not my first choice, but this joint never lets me down from what I expect from it.
