Great place to get together couples, friends or church group to eat some ice cream and chat. Can't wait until they reopen next season.

Another one of those places I keep in the back of my mind and try to stop by when in the area. A small cone is pretty good size, and makes for a good snack for after dinner. These small stand alone ice cream stands are few and far between, I am happy to see this place open up every... More

Each spring we wait in anticipation of Dairy Palace to show signs of opening up. The soft serve is creamy and always top quality. The staff are very courteous and quick in delivering your order. Add this on your list of places to go if you are in the area!

My wife and I stop at the Dairy Palace every once in a while. We both get the soft serve in cones. The ice cream is very good and the price is reasonable.

Love that they offer a kids cone. Prices are reasonable. In addition to ice cream they offer hot dogs, sloppy joes, chips and crackers, but I've only gone for... More

Love the soft serve ice cream here. It has been around in the community for a long time. Friends told me about it, and it becomes my favorite summer stop. My favorite is chocolate dipped ice-cream.
