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

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
