Van Dee's Ice Cream Shoppe
Ranked #1 of 2 Dessert in Johnston
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 12, 2017

Van Dee's is a local business that has a variety of cold selections that we have found delightful. The often have a special flavor of ice cream that you can try, are quick to serve, and have very good ice cream. Try a sugar cone. They put little sugar eyes on each of their ice cream cones, which is strange, but tasty. Try them out during the months they are open, you will not be disappointed.

My husband loves butterscotch shakes and very few places have them. Van Dee's does - and it's delicious! The choices you have is fantastic - and they always have a special!

Lemon is our favorite but really any flavor of the week will work for us. I love the "eyes" on each cone! Worth the wait in line.

Our family attended a state baseball game down in Des Moines and went to the Jordan creek mall and out to eat to Granite city. On our way home we looked up trip advisor to find and ice cream spot that was not named Dairy Queen or cold stone creamery. Van Dee's was an excellent find! Very busy place and some indoor sitting but the service was exceptionally fast. Prices might be a little above average but the ice cream is fantastic and worth taking the Merle Hay exit. My kiddos enjoyed Oreo blitzes, ice cream cookie sandwich, and a chocolate shake. A traditional little building with a lot of old time character and great options for ice cream! Fits all the after dinner sweet tooths.
