Mainly for ice cream and desserts...The soft serve ice cream is the best with a large variety of sundae's, shakes, sodas...They also serve sandwiches which are yummy too..

My husband and I were in St. Petersburg for a doctor appointment. We had a short break between appointments and needed to grab lunch. We ordered a bot and fries. The food was excellent. We'll go back again.

My husband was born and raised in st. Pete so he likes to take this jersey girl to the classic places. And dairy inn is one of them. Thankful that the hot steamy weather of August is almost over, we headed over to get chili dogs and milkshakes and sit outside with a nice breeze blowing. Place is immaculately clean.... More

The burgers are awesome: cooked to order and to the doneness that you want. I ordered mine medium rare and it was perfect and very juicy. The milkshakes are perfect too and one can order from dozens of flavors.

Whenever we eat at Hooks we always make the dangerous run across 9th to Dairy Inn. This place is such a dive but we love coming here for ice cream. They have great soft serve and usually very laid back and friendly staff. Tonight was no exception. There are tables outside and usually sticky from ice cream, but it's a... More

Looks like a major scale back on the menu but the ice cream swirls are still flowing. This IS a neighborhood tradition. Can't ever pass it up while passing thru

Go here if you want to try something a bit different. You q up at the north window, but first study the menu posted on the wall. Dairy Inn offers a wide variety of meals. Be aware, no sit down indoor dining room; a few concrete picnic tables under the roof to eat on site. You place your order, the... More

Dairy inn was my favorite spot for top notch sandwiches in St Pete. I have tries 3 times since it has changed ownership and is very mediocre! Don't waste your time or money.
