They serve excellent ice cream, which keeps some classic staples, but also tries to change some up each day to provide variety. There's ample parking in an understated but pretty classic Connecticut setting. Each day they don't produce a lot of ice cream, but stay focused on quality. It's worth traveling a distance to if you have hankering for ice... More

Dr . Mike is a Bethel fixture. With so many ice cream choices in the area, this ice cream continues to rate highly. Fruited flavors are never icy or overly sweet. The texture is smooth and creamy and the chocolate lace is unbeatable. Definitely a worth while place to go grab a cone and sit outside while you devour a... More

Great flavors, great texture, great prices, always a treat to get ice cream here. Don't worry if line looks too long, the kids working there do a great job of serving everyone efficiently.

You'll see lots of locals here, but also lots of folks from towns miles away. Dr. Mike's is a long-time favorite, and for good reason: it makes consistently great ice cream. If you're a first-timer, be sure to try the long-time favorite flavor: Chocolate Lace and Cream.

I have taken this ride several time and am always please with the ice cream. This time I choose the Chocolate Lace, with Maple Pecan and a touch of rich Chocolate. I ordered a medium and it let me taste a few of my favorites as well as the season one (maple pecan). Dr. Mike is known for the chocolate... More

I've eaten a lot of homemade ice cream around CT, and this is my proclaimed favorite. So so creamy and amazing high quality flavor! Flavor selection is small but rotating. Huge portions and the price is fantastic. Shop is very small and ice cream is best enjoyed outside. Entrance is in the back of the building.

I eat ice cream everywhere I go as a travelling salesman - and to me - nothing beats Dr. Mikes Chocolate Lace and Rich Chocolate. End of discussion.

Very good ice cream, but very limited. Only 8 or 10 flavors on any given day. They rotate. Not very friendly. Ferris Acres Creamery in Newtown, about a 10 minute drive away, is MUCH nicer, in my opinion. Better choice, much nicer energy, and real live cows.

It's a great place for the family. The ice cream in my opinion is super rich, but my kids love this place. Summer time is always time to go see the doctor!
