Dairy Queen is a favorite. Cone dipped in chocolate. Yummy. We did get sandwiches. Also Dilly Bars for the freezer. They were busy, good. Hope they will stay open for another year.

It was pretty humid so we decided an ice cream or cold drink would help. One strawberry shake and one ice cream and waffle cone did the job. Prices are a little higher than average dairy queen but it's an island so prices tend to...More

Stopped last night after a pretty bad dinner. Had my usual chocolate cone with chocolate JIMMIES ( sprinkles)...DQ is the same no matter where it is located. But I do have to say this one needed a little pick me up. Tired looking. But it...More
