Pretty good little spot

Small road side place. Food is ok. Clams were chewy but onion rings were very good. Service was great! very nice people. Not at all the typical snotty high school kids. Very sweet. Large menu and loads of ice cream flavors as well.

This is one of those great little NH ice cream & sandwiches spots. Open only during the warm weather, it's popular with locals as well as people traveling to the Lakes Region or the White Mountains. The only problem can be parking. The small lot in front of the Dipsy Doodle fills from around noon until closing. You'll see lots... More

We went out to lunch and had the best seafood ever! The people there are really friendly and you can't beat the prices. We also had some great ice-cream that our kids loved.

I'm a huge ice cream lover and most of the places in my area offer a long list of flavors. The Dipsy Doodle was out of 5 different flavors and didn't leave too many other choices. One high point though was they DID offer Peppermint Stick which can be hard to find. Unfortunately, the staff was really lacking on this... More

I have previously written about this little drive-in restaurant that isn't far from my home. It changed hands last year but I didn't have a chance to stop in until this week. I was a little surprised when I stopped in on a Friday evening and there was only one other car in the parking lot. Two things I noticed... More

The food is fantastic !!!! I did find that last year the prices went way up !!! The big portions that you got in the past were almost cut by 1/4 to 1/2 with French fries as a filler on your plate.We don't go as often because of this. We feel if your going to pay these prices we should... More
