Best Late Night Ice Cream Sundae's

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... read 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

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

We decided to stop in for a dinner. The room was extremely noisy due to a party of teenagers. The noise may not have been so noticeable if the restaurant installed acoustic ceiling tiles. The food was good. Great place for children.

My family and I have stopped in for lunch or dinner here for 20 years. We recently stopped in for dinner when we where down for Thanksgiving weekend. The food is always fresh and prepared well, their fried chicken is awesome! Burgers, sandwiches and everything else is great. The treat however is the ice cream! All kinds of sundaes, but... More

Cold wind was blowing with biting rain but our group still wanted to get our Dumser's ice cream sundaes before leaving Ocean City. Hot fudge sundaes did not disappoint. Ice cream, hot fudge, and whipped cream were excellent. Always very fresh and tasty. Impeccably clean with super service; we sat there a longtime in the pristine white booths and enjoyed... More

I get together with a group of friends twice a year and this is always our fun, laugh and eat too much get together. I'm not sure why I always eat an entree; the ice cream is what I go there for.
