There's not much to say about this place. If you want delicious homemade ice cream in classic and creative flavors then don't even bother going anywhere else. The service is always friendly and the atmosphere is fun. It's great for kids and adults. Best ice cream in town!

Staff is friendly, efficient, and the ice cream is to die for. Selection is frequently rotated, so a new surprise is waiting every time you go. A really great selection for the gluten free, lactose intolerant among us. Go and enjoy!!!!!

Morton's Moo serves up a variety of homemade ice cream. The personnel is very welcoming and the portions are generous. Must visit and taste at least 3 flavors (or all if you can)!

Was renting a house on Deer Isle and traveled through Ellsworth several times. My group stopped here for an ice cream the first time and then it became a destination. Great selection of yummy ice cream and pleasant servers.

By far the best ice cream in the territory. Everybody _ including two grandkids_ was very pleased. They are specialists and excell at it.

Playful atmosphere, fun staff, and tasty ice cream! The weather finally cleared for our Maine vacation and we just wanted treats for dinner. Morton's was the perfect fit for our exuberant 5 year old! My spouse and I each had a specialty ice cream sandwich and both were delicious and very satisfying. Our son had a blast working through his... More

We stopped here on our last night of vacation. The ice cream is very good, and they offer a variety of flavors. The young ladies working were friendly. Would definitely return and recommend this place to anyone.
