Great Shakes

The hard ice cream and shakes were great. Service could be a little better for out of towners and possibly getting off the phone while serving.

An IGA employee recommended we try Dairy Twist for our ice cream treat. PERFECT! They had both hard and soft serve ice cream but the best thing is that they had a candy coated peanut coating that I always enjoy and is very hard to find anymore. Terrific ending to the day. Enjoyed this little find AGAIN the following day.

We saw sign advertising 24 flavors of soft ice cream at the beginning of our day's adventure. Later we stopped and discovered even more including the large lobster on the roof. Beyond both soft serve and hard serve ice creams, malts and egg creams were on the menu. This was my first egg cream and I enjoyed it. Next to... More

Who would have thought that seafood & ice cream would go together so well? Apparently the folks at the Dairy Twist and Boston Seafood did! What a treat....reminds me of my visit to Martha's Vineyard a few summers ago. All my summertime favorites under one roof... So there I was driving up 590...the back way to Lake Wallenpaupack to visit... More

Service is horrible, kids that work there have no respect for anyone, just down right rude. Food is expensive for what you get. $13.00 for a lobster roll??? Give me a break!!!

I again asked for more . She told me there are about 3 wrapped around the cone already. The napkins are cheap, so for... More

The staff was friendly but my shake was soft serve could've gone to a drive thru joint for that. Disappointed!

The Dairy Twist is a great little ice cream place and my family and I were very excited about the 24 flavors they offer! Peanut butter and watermelon are very tasty. There are a few tables to sit at and we typically receive pleasant service and large portions of our order. I always feel like it is a bit expensive,... More

I had a big long story written but decided that nobody will read my long rant so I'll keep it short. Having visited the area for 30 years I understand that there is a very real problem with tourists filling small business dumpsters. But I wasn't aware that a prospective customer, who only turned away when I read the "closed"... More

This place is always hopping! And for good reason. They run a well-organized, clean operation in a convenient location where people can stop by and 'hang' in a comfortable, outdoor covered area or grab and go. The range of ice cream options is fabulous, and their food menu is creative and delicious. My only complaint is the lack of napkins... More
