Love this place for ice cream!! Large selection of flavors and the sizes are enormous! I always get a kids size which is like a standard medium. The pumpkin is a fall special and amazing - must try!

The fried seafood here is cooked well in a light coating and is delicious! The lobster rolls are also great. The ice cream servings are huge so you might just want a kiddie cone.
