After dinner we always hit the DQ for dessert and have never been disappointed. The blizzards shakes and malts are well prepared and reasonably priced.

Went there for lunch and the food was as expected very good. It's cooked when you order it so it's always hot. My wife an son love the ice cream.

Service in the drive through lane was very slow and waited long time for the car in front of us. I would recommend going inside.

A good place to get your dessert and watch the fireworks at 9:15 p.m. over the bay. Small indoor seating area as well as outdoors and drive-thru.

This is right next door to the go carts. Perfect location. The staff works very hard with the amount of people coming in from next door. My blizzard wasn't frozen and the wait is long. DQ needs more machines to keep up with the demand.

Exactly what I was expecting from D.Q. Service was very good considering how packed it was. Great on a hot night.
