Good for a quick cone of ice cream.

Although it boasts 24 flavors of soft serve, it is only when you get to the counter that you read that a flavored soft serve costs $.75 more. Apparently, the ice cream is vanilla and the flavor must be added in. I ordered apple pie and frankly, I couldn't tell any flavor but a bit of caramel... read more

Stopped by for an afternoon treat. Had the medium butter pecan ice cream cone. Ice cream was excellent and the size exceeded our expectations.

The seafood is a good idea with poor execution. Clams went up 5 dollars per bag for the holiday weekend to 25 (was $20) for a bag of 50. Good thing I went to Dutches market so I knew they were selling smaller little necks for 9.99 / 50 bag. No need to price gouge if you want your locals... More

In response to your review. I was not price gouging anybody. My price for clams went up and unfortunetly there is a shortage of little necks iin the whole northeast. You can google this to find out about how the shortage. July is the biggest month for these clams so what I can get will be at this price until... More

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!!!
