Stopped for a end of season sundae. Fast and friendly service. Always good to see a local business do well and provide great customer service.

The Dairy Freez located in North Ridge on Highway 3 just outside of Essex Ontario, is the best place in the area to enjoy any ice cream dessert!! Its been in business forever! There is an outside patio to enjoy your favorite dessert.

Great Place however...it was very disappointing that they take CASH only. Like hello its 2017 so many people use debit not cash. This place would get a 5 plus rating if they accepted debit or credit.

We took the family there last Sunday for ice cream and we were a bit disappointed in the size of our cones. They seem to get smaller and smaller. Taste great but not worth the price.

Just a nice sunny day drive from Windsor out to North Ridge east of Essex. Drive in restaurant with car hop service or patio tables or in enclosure. Typical drive in food. We had a chicken burger a cheeseburger with onion rings and a Pepsi....More

Best soft serve ice cream you will eat. 4 sizes with or without Chocolate dip and crushed nuts. I recommend the car hop Service for the full experience.

This is a great place for ice cream. Try their Vernors ginger ice cream float there, a nice treat on a warm summers evening.
