“Good creamy Ice cream”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

I would certainly reccomend this dairy for fresh creamy ice cream and to avoid the ridiculous lines at the penn state ice cream store. The only strange thing was they seemed to have a lack of toppings. I asked for caramel sauce and they said they didn't have it? I have never heard of an ice cream store that didn't have caramel. We paid extra for a sugar cone for my husband and they put it in a regular cone so he had to have them change it but otherwise it was a pleasant, tasty treat.

“Same-O Same-O Same-O”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The food is ok, a bit pricey but tastes good.
Great milk (to-go) and ice cream treats, also a bit pricey but the best in town.

The rest rooms are the same as they were in 1960.
Need updating badly.

“Delicious ice cream, fresh milk for purchase, affordable!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

I love the little window at the back of the store that allows you to see the milk being poured into the Meyer Dairy glass milk bottles! Milk for sale here is reasonably priced, and it's cheaper if you return (to recycle) the bottles. The food and ice cream here is also at a great price, and you can eat in their dining room which looks like your grandmas' kitchen :-)

“Ice cream on the outskirts of town”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Meyer's ice cream is south of town and the ice cream is every bit as good as Penn State creamery. There are a lot of cars in the parking lot, but do not be deterred - these folks are buying milk in glass jugs!
