On our way back to Chicago from the Indiana Dunes State Park we stopped over at the Dog Days Ice Cream Parlor for an Old Fashioned Ice Cream Experience !!! The only thing old fashioned about this place was the Historic Chesterton area, as the flavors, presentation & ambiance were all Modern as could be. The Customer service was excellent,... More

We had strawberry shakes which were really good. Our girls had cones which they also really enjoyed. Nice place for a cool treat.

I love this place, and the new location is finally open. It's a retro-style ice cream parlor with booths made of bowling-alley seats. The owner is a mellow guy who takes great pains to talk to his customers. They have an amazing gelato and ice cream selection.

Love the "dog days" theme - and the new place has so much atmosphere. A real treat for adults and kids - don't miss this stop after a day at the Dunes,... More

My family and I went to Dog Days after the European Market event to cool off and it hit the spot. Friendly service and a great selection of Gelato!
