“Great ice cream, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

My friend and I went to eat ice cream here after dinner, and it was the perfect way to finish the meal! The girl who served us was very warm and friendly, and the inside of the store is adorable. Above all the ice cream is great!

“Great ice cream shop”

Dog Days Ice Cream Parlor is a great addition to Chesterton's downtown. Friendly atmosphere and great ice cream and Italian Ice. Great place on a hot summer evening--or any evening.

“Old fashioned Ice Cream Parlor !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

On our way back to Chicago from the Indiana Dunes State Park we stopped over at the Dog Days Ice Cream Parlor for an Old Fashioned Ice Cream Experience !!!

The only thing old fashioned about this place was the Historic Chesterton area, as the flavors, presentation & ambiance were all Modern as could be.

The Customer service was excellent, price VERY VERY reasonable and above all the Ice Cream was delicious!!!

“Gelato is the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

First time in this lovely nostalgic ice cream shop. The owner, Martin, his wife and adorable baby boy, made us feel at home and treated us like old friends. There was a wonderful selection of ice cream, gelato and sorbets were incredible. There were 7 of us and we sampled quite a selection and loved every bite! We returned a week later to celebrate our anniversary! Love this place! Careful, it may be addicting!

We had strawberry shakes which were really good. Our girls had cones which they also really enjoyed. Nice place for a cool treat.
