I love ice cream and ice cream shops. This one feels more like a burger stand with a somewhat unappealing interior and ok outdoor seating. The ice cream was ok and the server exceedingly friendly. But if I am looking for a treat, I will look elsewhere.

I am completely addicted to the cherry Italian ICE. This stuff will blow your brain. It is ten thousand times better than anything else you will ever taste. It is better than the ice cream but the ice cream is still great. It is a sour cherry. It is truly mind blowing. I can't stop eating it. I need help.... More

Strongly recommended for ice cream and very pleasant service. This is not fancy but the ice cream is good and the prices are great. They also offer hot dogs and brats, also at very reasonable prices.

Friendly staff, most other customers seemed to be regulars. A lot of ice cream for a very fair price.

Small neighborhood ice cream and hot dog place. We had birthday cake (chunks of cake and icing), root beer float, chocolate silk pie, and chocolate chip flavors. They close at 10pm. No frills, just old fashioned non-contrived deliciousness.

This is an old school neighborhood ice cream shop. The ice cream choices are spectacular (try snow flake...no birthday cake...not Zanzibar...no chocolate peanut butter), the service friendly, and the prices oh so very kind to your wallet. The owner seems really generous and dedicated to the community and gives generously to local organizations and schools.

Dar's Ice Cream is a neighborhood shop. Kevin, the owner, takes great pride in offering the best in ice cream delights. My personal favorite is a chocolate malt complete with whipped cream and cookie. Our children ordered a variety from the waffle cones to the brownie with fudge. My husband ordered a hot dog with all the fixings! Simply the... More
