  • We stopped here while in Bar Harbor and felt like having some ice cream even though the temps were a bit cool. A very nice and interesting selection of flavors, some original as I had not seen them be...  more »

  • I had the Blueberry hand scooped into a cup. It was the best ice cream I've had in years! I worked in two ice cream shops when I was younger and routinely enjoy a scoop, so to say that this stood out means I really mean it! To top it off, the tour guide mentioned that Pres Obama tasted their ice cream, so that was the initial reason we chose CJ's. I look forward to going back for another blueberry scoop - even though I usually go to other flavors, I'd really like to duplicate the taste if I am able to get back there in the future. Unfortunately we live in Eastern PA & the distance is significant. Enjoy it if you can!
  • The ice cream I had was actually pretty good... a bit expensive, but it is Bar Harbor. Staff did not seem rude to me, but they seemed like they were all young foreigners here working for the summer. I think this is a good thing, but I can understand how they may seem rude to some customers as they may have some difficulty with language barriers. My biggest issue is "cash only". It is only posted at the register, and they "conveniently" have an ATM in the corner. The service fee is $2.00, and guess who gets it?... the ice cream shop. :) It's a genius money-making scheme, but we all found it to be slimy.
  • Very good ice cream with lots of different flavors. The one scoop was definitely enough for one person. I got the turtle caramel and it was delicious!
  • This place gets packed for a reason. It's right on Main St, they've got tons of flavors, and the sizes are big. Employees generally keep the line moving, so don't assume you'll be waiting forever if the line is out the door. Overall, a good place to grab a cone and that's all there is to it.
  • Very cheap, but very good ice cream. Has outdoor seating, and connected to both Grant Park and the Village Green. Service is amazing. However, this place takes cash-only, which is a inconvenience. For this, I rate CJ's a 4/5.
