Description: 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".

Their soft serve is incredibly creamy. The only way to improve on it is add one of your favourite flavours to make a Flavour of the Day. Licorice is my favourite, but peanut butter, root beer and coconut rank very close to the top as well. Their shakes are absolutely a must try - get a large, because they are... More

This outdoor restaurant is only open from maybe March to September each year. That is because you stand outside and wait your turn to make your way to the order window so our cold snowy winters are not condusive to this style. But it is so worth the wait in line for the ice cream. They have a different flavor... More

Most popular Ice Cream place in Regina and a local landmark. Is good ice cream but one of few good ice cream places in Regina. I have only had ice cream there, but there is more food. It's location makes it a good place to visit after Wascana Park.

This is the best soft ice cream in Regina (and best I've had anywhere else for that matter). Lots of hard and soft flavors to choose from and my husband loves their milkshakes too. NOT a good place to go if on a diet! Only open from spring to fall. There is a very good reason you almost always have... More

The Milky Way is an icon in Regina. It is not a restaurant; it is a walk-up ice cream stand with some food options. It has so many choices that making up your mind is the hardest part of your day. Always lined up and well worth the wait.

Granted, I haven't tired a lot of their products, but on my last visit I decided to treat myself and get chocolate dip on my ice cream. It was like eating soft brown plastic. It seriously lacked flavour.

What can you say about the Milky Way? Tradition, good service, good product, and I hope they stay around for a long time.

Best tasting ice cream for the best price! I like that you can get different dip flavours! My only wish is that there was another store or two in the city!

Every time I'm in Saskatchewan my clients kindly take me to milky way ice cream shack. Lots of choices and I love the casual bench environment. I look forward to my next visit!
