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.

What can you say about Dumser's - It's just the perfect retro ice cream parlor to go to. Right out of the 60's, with friendly staff, formica and wood and tin ceilings for the retro decor, delicious ice cream, and nice basic food at fair prices. For every trip that we can we make a point of visiting at least... More

Amazing sundae! A little pricey but worth it!! Soft serve with peanut butter and hot fudge with whipped cream and a cherry on top was exactly what I was looking for. Finished mine but could barely help my girlfriend with hers, very filling.

If you're looking for a good sundae, check out Dumser's. When you step inside the restaurant, you feel like you're going back in time. This is an old fashioned ice cream parlor at its best. The sundaes are great, lots of flavors to choose from and reasonably priced.

Pretty much a straight forward beach burger and ice cream place. The food is good and the wait staff attentive. Most of the wait staff are eastern European students over for the their break.
