Over the top ice cream

Always stop in when I am in Lincoln. The choices although not the widest are nonetheless adequate - and the ice cream is always very good. Always enjoy the holiday/special flavors - such as corn or bacon ice cream. Even better - the price is very reasonable and the helping more than adequate... read more

I really enjoy the treat when i go to the East Campus I usually will tend to try and stop by and get some ice cream here. The staff are so kind and I enjoy the flavors they have. Sometimes there can be a line but it is definitely worth the wait for the ice cream you get.

My wife will almost kill for ice cream, so making a stop here seemed a good way to make her day as we passed through Lincoln. It was a good decision. The ice cream was very good and served in large amounts (a single scoop is huge). They did have some unusual flavors as well, and I decided to try... More

If you are looking for high quality great tasting ice cream, look no further than here. They have about 12-15 hard serve ice cream flavors, as well as soft serve. However, the soft serve is NOT made at the dairy. I didn't have the soft serve, and it's probably fine, but why waste your time with ordinary soft serve when... More

Our first visit to the dairy store after living in Lincoln for years. It did not disappoint. A good mix of traditional and unique flavors. The store is staffed by college students who greeted us as we entered and offered samples of any and all flavors. We enjoyed generous servings of banana chocolate chip, caramel cashew, and sweet corn. Visitor... More

The dairy store has great ice cream! I have also bought cheese which is good and is seasonally available in gift boxes. The seating area is small and can get crowded, same with the parking area. I was disappointed when mint chip was not available but the raspberry chocolate chip was a very good substitute.

Well, the ice cream was good, rich and creamy, but a little lacking in flavor. It's not mediocre, not by a long shot, and prices are reasonable, $3 for a large waffle cone, but a top attraction? Not sure about that. Nice touch that the cross street is Dairy Store Way.

Every time we're in town, we UST make a run for the Dairy Store. The ice cream is always so great, and the kids working there are so polite. The parking is not the best, but if you don't mind a short walk, there are some spots to be found

I liked the ice cream but the young adults working acted like they really did not want to serve us, not even a welcome hello when we came in. We were the only people there. Need to work on them smiles and customer service
