I am not sure why this is #1? It is as good as other tourist town ice cream spots, but did not stand out as excellent. the ice cream flavors were your usual standard fare. There were four favors of gelato, I had the truffle flavor and it was good. The atmosphere is nice, server was not too friendly and... More

Me and my hubby had a date night in Chesterton and decided we wanted to go for ice cream. I must admit, I always thought this was a doggie parlor. I was wrong. The ice cream was delicious, the staff was friendly and decor was fun.

My friend and I went to eat ice cream here after dinner, and it was the perfect way to finish the meal! The girl who served us was very warm and friendly, and the inside of the store is adorable. Above all the ice cream is great!

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

First time in this lovely nostalgic ice cream shop. The owner, Martin, his wife and adorable baby boy, made us feel at home and treated us like old friends. There was a wonderful selection of ice cream, gelato and sorbets were incredible. There were 7 of us and we sampled quite a selection and loved every bite! We returned a... More

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.

So glad this shop has reopened! It's a great addition to Chesterton and the whole Dunes region. Fresh, flavorful, unusual - the folks here are friendly and helpful. 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
