Spring Break Vacation

During the off season, it was open. We were eating monday night. They has special deal. We took advantage of it! The service was very nice. The food was good. The Atmosphere is old fashioned ice cream parlor. It brings back in 60s and 70s. The Dessert was a hit!

Old reliable when in OC. The sundaes are amazing. A small is more than enough. Lots of choices. Friendly and fast service.

Looking for a place to carry out, since we brought out dogs to vacation with us. Dumser's seemed like the perfect place to get carry out....and it was. Chocolate malt was the best I've ever tasted. Burger was really good as were the fried shrimp and French fries.

Visiting OC from Chicago. After reading rave reviews about Dumser's, we brought the kids in for lunch. Getting the order wrong wasn't even a big deal. Our waitress was not friendly in the least. She never cane to refill our drinks. We were seated right by the waitress' station & could hear everything they were saying. From how they hate... More

Lot's of restaurants in Ocean City either don't serve dessert or it is just something mundane. So one night my husband and I went to Dumser's to have hot fudge sundaes. Oh my goodness! The ice cream was wonderful and the hot fudge was hot and fudgey, lots of nuts and a meaty cherry. I am not a big sweet... More

I went here my first night in OC while I was on business. It was a Thursday evening and a little after rush hours. I had a very friendly waitress help me and I ordered the 1/2 fried chicken with mac & cheese and fries. It took a little while to cook and get to me and she appoligized about... More

Skip the food. Average but pricey. Nothing outstanding about the food. But go for the ice cream! I love ice cream sodas and they will give you an extra squirt of syrup if you ask for it. $5 for an ice cream soda is worth it! The have cherry, orange, root beer and chocolate. I tried the milk shake but... More

First of all I love ice cream. We decided to go here instead of Dairy Queen... I love the apple pie with ice cream!! The apple pie is comfort food but with ice cream it's like I'm in heaven 😇😇😇my daughter lives for the tropical ice cream with the fruit. My son loves the vanilla shake. And my husband just... More

No Ocean City MD trip should be complete without a trip to Dumser's! The ice cream milkshakes and malts are truely the best I have had. No need to ask for them thick here. They server the tastiest thick shakes you will find! My wife loves the old fashion ice cream sodas. For me, there is nothing like a chocolate... More

Stick with the ice cream as the food was very low quality and overpriced. The main purpose of our visit was desert and on that front they offered a wide variety of choices that delivered a very solid but not outstanding product. The bad choice was to give the food a chance. They offered standard diner fair but with low... More
