Nice place. Parking lot will get full on hot summer nights. Inexpensive, good service.

“Soft ice cream like the old days”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

Remember when soft ice cream was actually called that and not "soft serve"? The soft ice cream here will bring you back memories of eating soft custard when you were a child. It is that good! they have the usual chocolate and vanilla but also have lemon and raspberry flavors. All are great and worth the trip and the prices. As the ice cream is very rich, go for the small size. It is a pretty good portion.

“It was great...never been disappointed”
Reviewed August 15, 2009

I've been there several times. Everytime, it's been great and delicious. The servers are sometimes naive and slow, but it's well worth the wait. If you mess up ice cream, there's something wrong with you.

“Cute old fashioned ice cream stand, but not worth going out of your way for IMO”
Reviewed July 6, 2009

This place is a roadside ice cream stand, an adorably old fashioned non-chain store. There are swings and seating provided.

There is a really wide variety of ice cream flavors and types available (hard, soft, mix in's, etc.) including Slush Puppies and everything is reasonably priced. I wasn't overly impressed by the chocolate chip cookie dough though. It was creamy, but a bit bland and I only got three cookie dough bites in the entire cup. Cute, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go there next time.

“A delicious, seasonal tradition.”
Reviewed April 23, 2009

We come to the Saratoga area to visit family and we love when the Dairy Haus is open. On our first trip there I was overwhelmed with all the choices and signs, so I asked the girl behind the counter what was most popular. She told me it was the lemon custard/black raspberry swirl (or is it twist, shoot, I can't remember!) is unexpected, refreshing and absolutely amazing. I crave it. Prices are reasonable, atmosphere is as cute as you can make a walk up ice cream stand. Highly recommended. Great value, great taste!
