Best burger in the area as is the ice cream

Outside dining on picnic tables, place your order at the window and then sit and wait. But... the wait will be well worth it. The burger was superb! We also enjoyed a great ice cream for dessert. Highly recommend, we will definitely be going back.

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.

A medium ice cream in a waffle cone for lunch! Great creative flavors!!! Wish I went in June so I could go back more often.

Friendly bar. People sat around talking to one another and the bartender was eager to give suggestions.

We have been visiting Riverside Dairy Joy every summer for years. The fried food is just delicious -- perfectly done, really -- and it's worth the short wait to savor burgers, fish, french fries, etc. at the umbrella-shaded picnic tables. The ice cream is fantastic, portions are good and prices are reasonable. Many, many different ice cream flavors are available.... More

The new management is really keeping up the Riverside Dairy Joy. The atmosphere is very inviting. Their burgers are hearty and very flavorful - cooked over the grill just right for my husband and me.

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....
