They must have 30 hard scoop flavors, plus they have soft serve. Waffle cones in two sizes, sugar and regular cones, plus milkshakes and more. Just had salted caramel while my daughter in law had salted caramel cookie dough. Delightfully creamy ice cream.

Dunphry did a wonderful job on my two daughters birthday cake. They're both born around the same days and I usually celebrate on the same day. Everyone commented how beautiful the cakes were and it tasted excellent. Dunphrys also allowed my girls to filled the middle of the cake with candy so I let my girls choose their own filling....

We mad it out to Dunphy's while in Bristol recently. This place is awesome, so many flavors, so many types of ice cream and sundaes, and shakes and well you name it. It's a must stop while you are in the area.

We were greeted by a pleasant man and woman (probably the owners). The entrance had what appeared to be like laser lights on the floor which was a great novelty. My wife had small hot fudge sundae. When she got the sundae she said she wanted a small one and was told that is the small. I myself had a... More

Best ice cream ......anywhere!!! Forget paying for cold stone or gross fryo, come to Dunphys for a true ice cream experience! It's a family and town favorite! I get my daughters birthday cakes here and they're always amazing and never a piece left over!! It's a small place and gets crowded, but its worth the wait....and very inexpensive!!! Win win!!

Every summer when I visit my relatives, Dunphy's is our first evening stop and has been for years. With generous portions - their single-scoop looks more like a double-scoop - and assortment of flavors, it's impossible to leave this shop with one's sweet tooth unsatisfied.

This is a busy place and once you go there you'll understand why! They have a good variety of different flavors and serve generous portions. Very friendly - what is not to like about Dunphy's?

Kevin and Gail and their staff always do a great job whether it's a stop in for a cone, sundae's to go, or a custom made cake. Prices are great and service is excellent. The only reason this isn't a five is that I like gourmet ice cream and they serve Hershey's. If you love Hershey Ice Cream then just... More
