There are so many places to get ice cream on LBI and, truth be told, they are all about as good as the other. One advantage Dairy King has is that, due to its out-of-the-way location, it is rarely crowded.

Everyone got their ice cream except my daughter...when it finally came...the 2 scoops was only 1 scoop AND it had ice frozen in it. Very poor quality. Try somewhere else.

About what you would expect for an ice cream stand in a shore area. Pretty good soft serve and pleasant staff.

Local purveyor of Turkey Hill products. Located in Long Beach Township near Beach Haven. No food. Good service. Good access and parking. Reasonable prices. Open only seasonally.

Have been to the dairy king many times over the past few years but the storm has done it's damage. Turkey HIll soft serve ice cream is not the same as what I remember last year or the machines have changed. Very water and not creamy. I will not be back

They have soft serve, but we opted for real ice cream. Cake batter ice cream for the kids. I thought it was good although not my first choice for a flavor. Great mint chocolate chip ice cream. Decent cookie dough. Not the best cookie dough I've had. 5 cone types to choose from when I was there. Great friendly service.

Like Dairy Queen but better....Dairy King has peanut butter dipping for the cones. Get a small vanilla dipped in peanut butter and you can die happy. And Mr T's mini golf is right around the corner - you can't play golf with a stop at Dairy King afterwards !

Dairy King has lines wrapped around the building for a reason, it truly is the best ice cream. People sometimes complain about the prices on the island and yes Dairy king may not be cheap but it is right along the rest of the places on LBI yet with better ice cream and serving sizes. A hot fudge sundae comes... More
