They tend to put lots of stuff in their Blizzards, which everyone loves! They could use some more staff on shift around busy hours though.

We often stop by for a dipped cone after watching the kids play baseball. service usually good but it could be faster at times.

Walked down from the hotel, wasn't too far. The kids behind the counter seemed to enjoy working there. They were pleasant and had my order whipped up in no time at all.

Had lunch here, food was good, place was clean, good atmosphere, nice view of the mountains. Slight issue with somewhat long time for the food to show up to the table, and the toilet wouldn't flush. Mulligans on both of those. Good place to stop.

You cannot be in a hurry when you come here. Staff always seem confused and rushed, the ktchen seems like they have no clue what's going on. The biggest frustration is that they will prepare your sundaes prior to your food, so by the time your order is ready your ice cream has melted.

Dairy Queen has been around for years and I like that I know what I order will taste like, from Ontario to BC

Was here for several snacks. Food is fresh and service is friendly. combos are a good way of saving money.

It's pretty hit or miss here. Simple sundaes and blizzards seem safe, other cold treats not so much. Same goes for the food, stay simple and you'll be happy. It is a bit pricey but Dairy Queen always is.

clean fast food with best hambergers in town. Of course the ice cream treats are to die for, family run, pride in their business.

I'm supposed to use 100 characters in this review. Lackluster food, pricey. Shoulda gone somewhere else, but wasn't too hungry and nothing else seemed all that enticing.
