Description: This building serving their soft serve ice cream has been there for many...
This building serving their soft serve ice cream has been there for many years. We have eaten ice cream there for over 30 years. Their soft ice cream (several flavors, depending on the day) is the best and that is what I always order. The soft serve chocolate is the best flavor and I have never had any to compare to Milky Way chocolate soft ice cream. They have "flavor of the day" and also serve many, many flavors of hard ice cream. Customers cannot wait for the Milky Way to open in the spring and watch the weather for when it closes in the fall so they can get their "last ice cream" there till it reopens in the spring. The line-ups are long, especially in the evenings, so plan to wait before you can order what you want. My last few visits they had to open the third serving window because the line-ups were so long. We were talking with someone who had visited friends in Regina and they told us about this ice cream place that was "so good" but could not remember the name of it -- they did not have to remember the name because we knew it was the "Milky Way".

An ok place for ice cream. Do not know if looking for a parking spot or waiting in line is worth it. Also suggest the purchase cones with the paper wrapper. The napkins fall off and the workers handle dirty cash.

It's been around for years, and it's still the best place to go for ice cream. Especially if you want delicious shakes or sundae's...

Whenever our daughter comes to town in the summer, this is a must stop. Both the variety and quality of the ice cream is top notch.

Although usually busy, Milky Way is the best selection of ice cream treats from Sundays and Shakes to dipped cones. The list of flavours is impossible to beat. So the wait in line is well worth it as it gives you time to choose.

Food was greasy and utensils were dirty. In fact the entire place seemed dirty. Bugs everywhere and staff was rude. Won't go again.

This place is more of an attraction than a restaurant : ) More ice cream flavours and dips than any other place I have been. Real cream ice cream and lots of innovative ways to get it. Take the kids, it's great!

Always so good. Their soft ice cream is so rich and creamy. I love it. My favorite is a hot fudge Sunday with pecans on it.

I am always a little skeptical about ice cream joints - mostly because I feel that I can get a lot more at a grocery store on sale, etc. But sometimes it isn't about value, it's about the experience and nostalgia. I've only been in Regina for 4 years, but this place really does sort of have an old-school feel.... More
