Stayed next door at the Budget Inn so we walked over for a cone and ate it on the motel front sitting area. Seems like a popular place and was a great way to relax in the evening.

This is the best ice cream in Watkins Glen. You get lots of ice cream for your money. I would suggest ordering a kiddie cone on your first visit as the smalls are three large dips.

I ordered a classic BLT - very good - just a little pricey (at $7 and it was just a sandwich, no chips or anything). Had 1 scoop of ice cream afterwords - very good.

Kids wanted ice cream so we stopped at the first place we saw. Nothing to rave home about pretty standard.

Nice little ice cream stop... very crowded!! They do sell a few sandwiches/hotdogs as well, but the main draw is the large number of ice cream flavors! Would have loved to try them all... lol I had a milkshake which was delicious and my husband...More

The best black raspberry soft serve ice cream we've ever had! Stopping at the Glen Dairy Bar was a wonderful end to a great day in the Finger Lakes. Be warned, many hungry mosquitos around the outdoor patio!
