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.

This place is packed at 9pm! But it's still the best ice cream after a long hot day of playing on the beach

Thank you! It's pretty sad when we compare our DQ with another town. They were ON IT! we has our treats before we even sat down. Our own hometown one takes 20 minutes. IT was a great way to end the day. thank you

Do I really have to write a review to convince you to go here? It's your average dairy queen, except it's super quick with a quick, positive staff. The parking lot was completely full, so we had to park far away and walk.. Once we got to the door, there were hundreds of ice cream-craving customers waiting on the inside... More

Don't go to the gelato place--that stuff looked really disgusting. Like it melts and refreezes all of the time. The DQ people were friendly and efficient! And have good soft serve--even if they don't have butterscotch hard shell. :/

Great blizzards and they were pretty quick in service. It was right on the main street close to the family activities.
