I thought the ice cream was lame. I got mine chocolate chip. It wasn’t very minty and has microscopic pieces of chocolate. We got ice cream in Glennie the next day. I got the same flavor and it was 10 x’s better. The new social...distancing set up was nice. You order outside now and don’t go into the store.More

Marion's dairy bar is a great place within the downtown East Tawas area. The ice cream here is awesome; it's not made on-sight, but the options: Guernsy, Hudsonville, or Ashby, are all premium Michigan brands, and all are available. The staff here was wonderful, and...very friendly. There is seating available inside, but we got our ice cream to go, and enjoyed every bit of it!More

Great kids work here they r well trained,customer oriented and kind. The management and owner r very community oriented. It is a sweet family hangout. When friends visit Marion’s is required.

Amazing Ice Cream! We love the decadent creaminess of Ashby Ice Cream. We have also had breakfast at Marion's. The bacon is thick and delicious!

We had good ice cream here, but felt it was a bit pricey. The selection was very good. They need some bug control in the seating area as my friend had small flies biting her legs.

Came late afternoon for a tasty treat after fishing, there was no wait. Everybody was happy with their custard or scooped treat. While we were eating, about 40 people showed up, so we timed it perfectly.. Highly recommend

Camping nearby and we needed daily dose of ice cream. Busy but the staff was efficient and strictly business. Ice cream was good but somewhat overpriced for what you got.

Nice family restaurant with great ice cream, sundae and milk shakes. They also serve breakfast and my in-laws who live in town say it is great. Popular place!

Great breakfast stop. Very old time feel, like a diner from back in the day. Decorated with all the antique Coca Cola apparel. More of a breakfast/ Ice Cream Shop. We stopped for take out on the way back from Oscoda. Staff seemed very friendly...and organized. We got the hash brown mountain and the raspberry stuffed French toast. It came served with fresh raspberries! So many places now days are always just canned no matter what time of year you go. We plan on coming back st some point this summer for ice cream and a walk down the pier, hopefully this summer. There tip jar was cute lolMore
