Efficient team, generous portions and ice cream that is old school perfect. The flavour choices have something for everyone. From the classics to orange pineapple, blueberry, etc. Friendly team that work beautifully in harmony. You want it, they have it. If they don't, then maybe you should try something different! Bravo to the nice folks at Big Daddy's.

There is often a long line when you go here, but it moves quickly and it is worth the short wait. Many flavors, all deliciously rich and creamy. Closed during the winter.

From kids sized cones and sundaes to gigantic cones and dishes, this place has the flavors, the quality and the quantity you want at reasonable prices. Limited seating but a huge parking lot, makes this a favorite for locals and tourists alike. If you want to sit inside, go around 4:30-5:30 when most normal people are preparing for dinner. Most...

Big Daddy's Ice Cream is a place to get fun treats. We go for dessert each night while staying in the area. There are places ti sit indoors and outside. There is plenty of parking. There is a wide variety of flavors.

We try to stop here every year during our annual vacation in Wells. They close in early October, and not all flavors are available as that time approaches.

Home made ice cream at it's best. So many interesting flavors it is hard to decide. All favors tried so far have been great. Besides ice cream they serve a tasty hot dog, be sure to try it.

Good flavor choice and very good ice cream. Very efficient taking and serving up your order. Parking is ample, easy in and out. Several table areas inside for anyone wanting to sit with family and friends to enjoy their delicious choice.

The best ice cream around. Many, many flavors of ice cream offered. You don't see peach ice cream or banana chip ice cream to many places.

We visit this area of Maine once a year and in the past 10 years, this place is always closed during our stay. They used to open from Thursday thru Sunday, but we get here on a Monday and leave on a Thursday, so we never had a change to go here. Well, they changed their hours and are now... More

We stopped here based on others' reviews. The ice cream was quite good. The servings were very generous and the prices were reasonable. My husband got a small, and the kids and I both got kids sizes and none of us finished it. There was a large selection of flavors and a nice seating area out front. I thought overall... More
