I am always up for a Dairy Queen especially after walking 3 miles in the windy hot sun. Very nice and clean place

We went to this Dairy Queen last year and found it to have great malts, shakes, and Chili Dogs. We returned this eyar and found it to be the same. There are always people thre at any time we go there or drive by. Recommend this Dairy Queen.

Had a snack here after lunch. I had a blizzard and the dog had a dish of ice cream. Went through the the drive up the service was ok. It was an average DQ.

DQ's are usually one stop when we are on road trips. They have all been fairly consistent up until now. After 3 days of seafood we decided to have a burger. There was something funky about it which neither of us could figure out. The only salvation was the wonderful friendly service.

Good value place that doesn't seem like fast-food. We've never been disappointed here. Good specials and prices are the same as in our hometown.

After dinner we always hit the DQ for dessert and have never been disappointed. The blizzards shakes and malts are well prepared and reasonably priced.

Went there for lunch and the food was as expected very good. It's cooked when you order it so it's always hot. My wife an son love the ice cream.

Service in the drive through lane was very slow and waited long time for the car in front of us. I would recommend going inside.

A good place to get your dessert and watch the fireworks at 9:15 p.m. over the bay. Small indoor seating area as well as outdoors and drive-thru.
