“Typical Dairy Queen Experience”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Let me begin by admitting my personal bias: I like almost all Dairy Queen restaurants that I visit. This one was no exception. The "hot eats and cool treats" were what I have come to expect from a Dairy Queen. The menu items and prices were typical for a Dairy Queen. Thus, they are a relatively inexpensive dining (or snack) option--when compared to most other North Shore dining opportunities..

This is one of the few restaurants (along the North Shore} that belongs to a nationally-recognized chain. Its menu selections are kid friendly.

My only criticisms: The place could be a bit bigger--especially the indoor dining area. The parking is somewhat limited. Although the restaurant is not ancient, it could perhaps benefit from a bit of an upgrade or remodel. It seems a bit "dated".

In the end, this place has the menu items and prices that you expect from a Dairy Queen. If you are traveling with kids--that can be a good thing.

“You have to love DQ”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

After a long hike, there is nothing like a Blizzard. I like Strawberry, pineapple and bananas. My wife is a fan of a medium cone dipped.

“No thanks”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We ended up at DQ one day due to long waits at other places, thinking we'd get a typical DQ meal. My burger with swiss cheese was swimming in mayo, so ended up eating the burger after wiping off the side with the mayo, also threw out the bun as it was ruined. Fries were too greasy. Cherry shake had ice crystals in it-threw that out. Disgusting.

“Busy”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

After eating out all week and whining about the expensive food, this was a nice treat. It was packed at 6 pm, but the rush was handled smoothly and the locals must know it's a good place to eat, too.

“If you like Dairy Queen?”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

There's nothing wrong with this one, it's just a Dairy Queen that's all. The ice cream is great. Don't eat the fatty fried food if you don't have to.
