Stopped by Mainely Meat to pick up take-out (amazing btw) and were tempted by the long list of ice cream flavors at Udder Heaven. We ended up getting a few ice cream cones and enjoyed our dinner after our dessert. What they hey, we're on vacation! Next time I'll be more brave and try the blueberry!

Thank you for visiting with us and we really appreciate the feedback. There is calcium in ice cream so you have a good excuse to eat it before the meal! We hope we get the chance to serve up the blueberry during your next trip to Bar Harbor. More

It means English is not my native language. I was working in the USA in summer 2017. Fortunately, It was Udder... More

Amazing ice cream. So many varieties and choices, it was hard to decide. Hint: Do not order a large cone unless you have someone to help you finish it.

My wife and I are celebrating our 40th anniversary by traveling through the New England states. We stopped in to get ice cream and were very pleased with the outstanding attitude of the owner.

Thank you for visiting with us and for sharing your experience especially so late in the season. Unlike the masters, I don't think we will ever have a flavor graveyard but there have been a few random burials. Safe travels and we wish you another 40 years! Bob More

Great place to get you ice cream fix on. They are not shy on the serving size, more than most places, and a lot more flavor. Order at one window get a number pick up at the other with plenty of places to sit and enjoy.

Such interesting flavors it's hard to choose. I got coconut and dark chocolate with walnuts in a waffle cone - couldn't believe the rich creaminess of their hard scoop ice cream. Tried one of the more famous ice creams in downtown Bar Harbor and found it not nearly as flavorful but a lot more expensive.
