We stopped here a few times during our stay. Service was fairly quick. Didn't have any issues. Wasn't exceptional but was good for fast food establishment that seemed nearly always busy. Only got ice cream products.

The prices are so-so for what you get but the variety of Avalanche flavors adds to the fun for the kids. The dining room is a little dirty at the end of a long day at S.P.I. Bathroom line is long because outsiders come in just for their use. Parking is cramped due to other attractions across the street.

Sits right by the Gravity Adventure Park - so it's the perfect spot for a little ice cream break! Sitting is available indoors and out. Bathrooms are simple but clean.

Staff is nice, but they never have enough registers open and they are always busy with a line out the door. A bit chaotic!

Fantastic dessert for a dinner party. We bought the 10inch cake and it served 15 adults with seconds for a few. Great value and delicious.

Great food and good number of choices. Minimal waiting time. There are go-kart and other fun activities next to this place so it would be fun spending time around this place. The desserts are out of the world. Grab one !!!

Apparently they didn't have the same things listed on the online menu, my husband and I decided to eat DQ, so my husband asked me what i wanted and looked online and their menu said they had a mushroom & swill burger, I love those kind, and when he went to the restaurant they didn't have them :( so he...

Went there for after dinner dessert with friends, love the Blizzards. We always stop for a sweet treat when we go to dinner on the island.

It just what you expect from a DQ. Although they only offer chocolate for dip comes...no cherry or butterscotch. Neat to watch the people at the gravity park next door while you enjoy a treat.
