Stopped in recently with our friends...it was a very lucky stop...as both the frozen custard and the frozen yogurts are great. A cute roadside respite with a shaded picnic table to enjoy your treats...Lots of parking...friendly staff. Even have doggy treats. This is a seasonal business...probably closing in September or October. You should try to get there before the summer... More

Great flavors and reasonable prices at a real old time frozen custard stand. If traveling on rt.26 in Maine, be prepared to stop in Poland Maine for a treat.

Nothing better on a hot day... To have a cone or dish of frozen custard. You can even buy pints or quarts. Every day a new flavor. My favorite is Grape Nuts. It's like a creamy, crunch, decadent breakfast cereal on a cone or in a dish. I choose a waffle cone to complete the experience of pleasure. Friendly staff,... More

Perhaps the custard should have tasted just as it should - so please give it a try. My husband didn't like it. If you are a frozen yogurt person, I had the chocolate and the blackberry - the chocolate was decent, but I didn't like the blackberry (tart or something -not quite right tasting). The billboard showed a soft serve... More

After a walk in the park, we decided to have frozen custard "for lunch"....two scoops in a sugar cone of maple walnut and I was in love......can't wait to try their other flavors soon.

Great customer service! Been there so much over the years, we feel like family. Very put out a calendar of flavors. Some of the flavors are very customized

The BEST custard we have ever had! This a must stop if your near by, if your not its worth an hour or two drive! The smoothest custard I've had.

Following a good meal down the road at Cyndi's dockside - just had to go for dessert at Ruby Rose. Had the Brownie Bite custard, even though I am not a great fan of chocolate - this flavor was delish. Whenever we are in the area of Poland, we try to hit Ruby Rose and are always hoping for our...

My first review was terrific, but Ruby Rose has not been terrific for us this season. On 4 occasions the flavors were either non-existent or extremely mild. 3 days ago, my husband & I each ordered ginger custard. Upon tasting it we each said "this is vanilla." There was not even the faintest hint of ginger. My husband returned to... More

The hand made Frozen Custard fairly famous in Maine is the best right there is Poland. When we are around in the summer we try not to miss a day of our treat here. The taste is clean, but so rich and full of real ingedients, They have special ice cream for those who are lactose intollerant, don't want sugar,... More
