The ice cream is great, and the service is friendly and helpful. We have dairy allergies to contend with and the staff knew all about what my daughter could and could not have.

A terrific variety of flavors. The staff is quick so when it gets busy you don't have to wait very long, after you make your decision. LOL

Nice place for ice cream and many flavors to choose from. Line can get long but moves quick. They had some gluten free options for my wife and she got the chocolate moose tracks and liked it a lot.

We stopped in for ice cream, and were pleasantly surprised at the number of wonderful homemade flavors available. They even had Maine Blueberry Gelato....amazing!

If you like cookie-dough ice cream, you HAVE to try CJ's version. It has huge hunks of dough in it. The classic must-do ice cream stop in Bar Harbor!

My son (4.5 years) had his first soft serve here! They had almond milk soft-serve and he loved every bite. The little place was crowded but it moved quickly. They have loads of flavors but we especially appreciated the non-dairy options. Keep it up!

We visit Bar Harbor every year and CJ's Big Dipper is my go to for dairy free ice cream. They offer several flavors of soy ice cream that are always perfect. The texture is smooth and creamy, the flavor combinations are anything but boring and...More
