Buckeye Dairy Bar is a must for ice cream, The Works pizza, and minature golf for the family. Looking through the window at a very clean kitchen while you food is prepared is a plus or calling ahead so there is no wait to pick up your order. The employees are friendly and polite.

Stop here after hiking /exploring Ohio's Shawnee State park. You'll love the food and setting. Looks nice & clean inside and out. Great picnic tables. Miniature golf too!!! IT's a very relaxing road stop and reasonable too.

My husband and I never miss eating here when we are in the area, it's a hotdog and hamburger type of place with very good food and delicious milkshakes. They do have a lot to choose from plus pizza too and we have always enjoyed eating there.

Buckeye Dairy Bar is an institution in the area due to the friendly staff, extremely clean facilities and lovely grounds. The mini-golf course is really nice!! The food is good by dairy bar standards and my favorite is their Banana Split in a cup or the Buckeye ice cream...YUM!

My kids love the mini gulf and milk shakes. Raspberry milkshakes and blue goo with a face.. I have been going to buckeye dairy bar for a long time. It's always clean and frienly.

We were told about this place from the locals, who said it was the best burger around. We got there, ordered, but other people who ordered after us, got their food first. It took a long time to get our order. The burger wasn't the best we've ever had, I would compare it to McDonalds or A & W type... More

This little spot right on 52 on the way into Portsmouth is a nice surprise. They have great soft serve ice cream and a very reasonable price. And the surprise is they even offer food. Sandwiches and pizza will satisfy the kids. Lots of places to sit and they even have Putt-Putt

I can say from experience that the hot fudge sundaes and caramel sundaes are tasty! Milk shakes and swirl cones are good too. There is plenty of picnic table sitting area and many in the shade.
