Hadn't had Beal's delicious dairy delights in several years since my last visit to Portland. This most recent purchase confirmed my belief that a visit to the city isn't complete without a stop to this shop for any ice cream lover. The flavors, texture and...More

Ordered the small, which was a single scoop and, well, small. I had strawberry which was pretty flavorless. It was pink, but if I'd closed my eyes I never would have known. Suggest you taste before you buy.

Great spot to stop for a treat on a hot day. We didn't really know much about it but hard a fair amount of people so must be good.

This is a very cute store, set up all old-fashioned. The ice cream is delicious and I also got a blueberry soda that was very good.

Cold, creamy ice cream. Flavor choices not excellent, maple walnut was delicious. A bit pricey but what else can you do when you need ice cream?

Best real old fashioned Ice Cream in the whole state of Maine. The scoop sizes are large and you can get two flavors in one single cone!!

Ordered a single scoop of Blueberry Crumb ice cream it was delicious. I loved their ice cream and will return next time I'm in Portland.

I am a connoisseur of ice cream. And Beals does not disappoint. Great flavors to choose from including classics you'd expect from Maine: blueberry, and maple walnut. Yum. If only they could pack this up the way Maine packs up its lobsters. Delish.
