Perfect place to end a day at the beach

This is a great cool place to relax after a full day of the sun. Very nice music playing in the background. We had a very pleasant time just reviewing our day.

My husband & I like to have the specials that are offered weekly. We had a burger, fries, drink and a mini blizzard all for $6.00. It was very tasty . The place was very clean. Also had their 1pt fudge bar on another occasion.

Typical DQ with good menu and decent prices. We go for our ice cream fix and there are many delicious choices.

Our peanut butter sundaes were an awesome dessert after dinner at Joe's Oyster Bar. Nothing to dislike at this place.

Stopped in for ice cream with my family. Just like any other Dairy Queen. Good ice cream. Loved sitting outside.

Nasty, unprofessional, expensive, crass, rude and that's just via the drive-thru. They couldn't understand our order: in spite of the fact that we asked for mustard, the employee kept shouting, "extra ketchup?!" We pull up and are overcharged for everything; no one ever cracked a smile. Believe me, I was more than cheery on my end. Complete minimalist mentality. No... More

This Dairy Queen is no different than any other one with 2 notes: this is the busiest DQ I have ever seen in my life and their parking lot connects to Louie's behind it so parking and maneuvering it takes skill and patience. It is a great, affordable treat for the family. Service was good too.
