  • The ice cream was amazing. I think we ended up getting muddy boots but I can't remember the name. It had caramel and bits of brownie. Amazing! But the price is ridiculous. Around 4.50 for a small ice cream that was really a kiddie. And 75 cents for Hershey chocolate syrup??? And the woman was rude when we asked that it's really 75 cents since no where else have we ever paid for chocolate syrup. It's like a condiment with a hot dog, I wouldn't expect to pay for ketchup or mustard.
  • We went once for ice cream and blueberry pie, which were both great. We also went back for sandwiches and lobster stew at 9 pm since this is the only local restaurant serving food at that time. Out waitress was super helpful even though it was clear her shift was ending.
  • Probably the best value (and even food in general on MDI). The lobster roll was incredible... And their pie. Well, you will just have to taste it for yourself. Great outdoor tables at the main intersection in SW Harbor makes good people watching.
  • The food was so good and the staff was very nice. Plus a great outdoors area to sit and enjoy the downtown with our pups! Loved it.
  • Been coming here for years. Lobster stew is excellent. Owners and staff are so friendly, it feels like going to a friend's house to eat. We end up here for ice cream every evening.
