“Must Do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

If you are in the Jefferson City city limits for more than 20 minutes you must go to central dairy. It is a fantastic experience and the ice cream is top notch. BRING CASH!

“This is simply the best!”

I made the mistake of introducing the wife to Central Dairy, now we have to stop every trip to JC. Like I really mind. Wonderful ice cream and fantastic service!

“Just Okay. I expected more.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

I didn't have anything to eat but the prices seemed decent.
Staff was not customer service oriented. with no one else in there, I was not greeted until I talked to them to pay. And then they went right back to gossiping.

I expected it to look cuter or nicer. I expected more with who they are and their history.
Unsure if I'd recommend, but try yourself. My friends like the ice cream

“Best ice cream around!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

I live in Jefferson City and take every opportunity to go there. I only wish they would stay open later during the summer when I get those after dinner cravings for ice cream. Whether you live here or just passing through it is definitely worth checking out.
