Usual DQ food but dirty inside. Like, flies on the menu board and trash on the floors. We didn't risk the tables; ate in our car.

This is the old fashion Dairy Queen experience from your childhood. The Restaurant has been updated but the food and ice cream are still the same as you had when you were a kid. It's worth a try and you can't beat the $5.00 lunch.

This is in an easy toi find location on Main street/23. It is on your way to and from the beach. Service always friendly. Walk up window makes it easy to access. It's DQ on a hot day. Nothingbetter

Was hot and after a long day in sun a good place to have in town. Me personally being from Florida and new to MI am so surprised the overall abundance of Ice Cream and Pizza Parlors are around.

What a treat! A Dairy Queen, smiling faces and delicious ice cream. Brought me back to a time when I was younger and enjoyed the same in the Dairy Queen where I grew up.

Good Carmel sundae and mango pineapple smoothie. Very strong mango flavor which was good. You know you can always get what you order and it will be good if the DQ is up to par. This one was.

Very clean establishment and very busy on weekends. Typical fast food offers and then there is the famous ice creams and deserts. Prices range from very family friendly to pretty expensive for some deserts. Pay attention to save some vacation money. That being said we have never had a bad visit and make it a point to stop in for... More

The food is more or less fast food. The sundaes are excellent. They also have ice cream cakes that can be personalize. This is my "cheating" place to go if I'm dieting. We are locals and our whole family loves it. Great family place.

Typical Dairy Queen, lots of frozen desserts, and fast food combos. Moderately priced, offers ice cream cakes also, open all year, located on an access road. Watch the one way signs. Sufficient parking, walking distance from the State Park and downtown shopping. Nice.
