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.

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

This DQ definitely needs to be up graded. It is certainly stuck in the 70's. The service was slow. The burgers are dry. Our meals were not ready all at once; so you may get your burger, but your fries and drinks 5 minutes later. The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting! Yarmouth is a small town and needs to put forth... More

What a great place, The owners are really smart not giving in to the modern way. The customers are die hard fans and a very eclectic bunch and fun to watch. The burgers are good, come out hot and they can whip up a ice cream treat so good you want to go back for another. Great and thanks to... More
