DQ for Dessert

Never a bad time to visit DQ. As normal this is a family Tradition so we always stop for a ice-cream. The hot food DQ serves now is always good and quick.

Nice renovations, much improved service, in fact they deliver to your seat. Place was very busy when we were there and very clean Quality is what you would expect from the Dairy Queen's grilled burgers, tasty and not greasy.

This place needs some renovations , It is disgusting to go in, compared to other Dairy Queens , Highly requires cleaning up with the interior and the staff.

A typical Dairy Queen, and Brazier Foods. Cleaner than it has ever been, but that is thanks to a recent remodel and renovation. You don't go to the DQ for fine dining or the excellent service, as you don't get either here. It's what you expect from DQ, you go for the treats, and that never disappoints. You have to... More

Love this place, it's a good value for a fun desert. This one has been totally remodeled and it has a very modern new dining area.

they used to have the best cheese burgers, but not anymore. The Dairy Queen in Digby is definitely worth the drive if you are looking for a great DQ cheeseburger

Have been there a few times in 8 years of living here. Every time I've been there was a horrible experience. Horrible service, wrong orders, poorly made food (ie: half melted blizzard), and debit machines down (happened a few times). I haven't been in a few years due to the above mentioned. Hopefully they've changed their ways.

We traveled with friends who love ice cream. After eating a wonderful meal and walking the downtown area, we found the Dairy Queen. It was a nice treat after a nice afternoon. Being from the states, we were surprised to find one in Yarmouth. Same menu, same wonderful service as our home town.

Ordered a peanut buster parfait and got salted nuts instead of the usual peanuts and caramel. Portion was much smaller than other Dairy Queens. Staff wasn't attentive to serving customers and asking questions on food orders.

The Dairy Queen in Yarmouth still looks like it has 1970's decor. Unfortunately, it's located off the beaten track in relation to where all of the other fast food restaurants are located. On the plus side, they do hire and support people who might not otherwise have employment opportunities. These are people with intellectual and physical disabilities. The food is... More
