The ice cream is great! The service was a bit slow but I hear there are new owners this year and am excited to see what direction they will be taking this charming dairy bar. Lots of outdoor seating, horses behind in the field. Love this spot.

Riverside Dairy Joy always have great food. I have been going there for about seven years. It's no fast food chain restraurant where the food is instant. The food at Riverside Dairy Joy is consistant and worth the wait. I went there for lunch and got stuck there because my truck wouldn't start. The owner's were very understanding and accomodating....
