The ice cream at Dumser's is consistently good. The dine in area is ok. The menu selection is ok if you want a sub or burger. The service is good, most young girls that work hard and are nice. I would recommened any family to go here for a nice night of dinner and ice cream.

We came here every night of our trip for ice cream and it was fantastic. They have a bunch of flavors and they give you a bunch of ice cream. A small is huge.

Whenever I am in Ocean City I make a point to get a Dumser's milkshake. This particular trip I got 2! I am a huge chocolate shake fan but my favorite Dumser's shake is vanilla. I know they offer a ton of flavors but when I deviate I always have a small amount of regret. No to say they don't... More

The service at this restaurant is always good and they make the best fried shrimp. I highly recommend getting their ice cream sundaes.

Dumser's has been in business since 1939...they must be doing something right. They make their own ice cream and the food items on their menu are very good (we generally only have lunch). We come here (to 49th St.) most frequently and sit at the old fashioned "lunch counter" for dessert. Whether we've eaten here or not, we find our... More

Dumsers has great ice cream and a fantastic selection of flavors. We stopped here every night we were in Ocean City. They made a great chocolate/coffee milk shake for me. It rapidly became a family favorite.

Best ice cream in the area. We always have to stop for a scoop when in Ocean City. The coffee chocolate chip is my favorite while my daughters love the oreo crunch.

We went for dinner with the grand kids. We had cheeseburgers, chicken salad and macaroni and cheese (kids meal). The food was run of the meal. The cheeseburgers were plain and unflavorful. The macaroni and cheese was dry, my grand daughter wouldn't eat it and she will normally eat ANY macaroni and cheese. My sister said her grilled chicken salad... More

On Thursday June 26th, we chose to dine inside for ice cream. We arrived at 8:30. At 8:50 we had not even been greeted. I told the hostess as we walked out, and she just said sorry. It was our first experience at this restaurant and it will be our last.

Food was delicious as usual and the ice cream was even better watching all the street rods go by. Kind of put you in the "Happy Days" frame of mind. Will always stop at Dumser's when in OC.
