Not wanting anything huge to eat but needing to grab a bite, we swung into here. Is a very simple fast food counter place serving burgers and chicken. For dining on a budget this is definitely place to go.

We stopped here for lunch only because not much else was open on a Monday during the slow fall season. It's pretty much like a Dairy Queen, menu-wise, but with a little more personality. Supposedly they are known for their burgers, but the meat on mine was dry and without much flavor. Fried catfish was better, but at $11.50 somewhat... More

We were looking for a burger, and the Dairy Bar had good reviews. We stepped in to order and it was like the whole staff was angry and/or stressed. Then you look around and see all the negative signage. The burgers were fine but only average.......nothing I'll have to come back for. There is a vastly superior product at Bull... More

Great burgers, shakes and malts, and soft serve. Stays busy most days so sometimes you do have to wait for food. Has both indoor and outdoor seating areas. A required stop for our bunch.

This is the Dairy Bar, but it's whole lot more than that. Yes, you can get great ice cream delights, but their menu is huge. Everything from burgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese, wings, fish sandwiches and platters, chicken strip dinners, and much more.

Not a huge fan of the dairy bar, but year after year, we eat there a few times, due to the proximity of it to our cabin, and the kids love it! They are always packed, the service is very slow and the food is very overpriced for the taste/quality. Typical burger place...
