Ice cream what more can I say

Good ice cream, milkshakes and blizzards. They do serve other food. It is located in a gas/ grocery store just after you cross the main bridge to the island.

I love stopping here after dinner. They never disappoint. The burgers are very good. Probably the best on the island. There is gas and a small store next door. Nice to get other snacks for later. The only issue is there is no longer a sidewalk on the inland side. They used to have one but new construction removed them.... More

Given the location, where most everything is pricey, I was pleasantly surprised that they still offered their $5.00 lunch deal. Everything is prepared to order, and the service is better than any fast food place I have ever visited. You could eat three meals a day here and not have to repeat choices for at least a few days. Mostly... More

We ate breakfast there one morning. Our biscuits were good. Then one night we stopped in for ice cream. Just like any other Dairy Queen it is good. Just vanilla soft served is my favorite.

Usually a stop after dinner for a blizzard dessert. First time disappointed by poor service and lack of quality employees. The blizzard was weak and was handed to us much less upside down. A top nor a carrier offered. Will probably go to the yogurt shop in village in future.

It shouldn't take over 30 minutes to get at BBQ and hamburger combo. The service this week was horrible. I opted not to dine with them again the remaining 5 days on Jekyll even though they were the most affordable lunch option. Several people had to get refunds while I was there because of wrong orders or missing food. I... More

Food was good and this DQ serves breakfast but when it comes right down to it you just can't beat a properly made Blizzard.

Whaddya want? At least it was clean and served a cheap breakfast. Shares space with gas station. Nuff said. You will survive and can fill up at the same time.

We had an unpleasant experience here. The Manger yelled at both customers and staff the whole time we were there. Our blizzards were only mixed halfway through. The bottom was all plain ice cream.
