We only had ice cream here a couple of times while camping at the nearby state park.They have excellent soft serve ice cream. We stopped a couple of times in the evening and once during the day, and the place was always busy. So, the food must be good too. We didn't play, but they have a very attractive miniature... More

The dairy bar is a regular stop for us on our way back from hiking. The Buckeye classic, birthday cake, and cookie dough are family favorites. The turtle sundae is also one of the bests. Putt putt course is really well maintained and is a fun time.

After playing at ETC Riverside Park, we drove about 3 miles west on Rt. #52, to what has become a family favorite. The grandchildren played in the grassy area, picking up sticks, while we waited for our food. Footers, corn dogs, steak sandwiches, and hot fudge shakes, although NOT low in calories, were all delicious, as usual. We'll be back... More

Buckeye Dairy Bar is a must for ice cream, The Works pizza, and minature golf for the family. Looking through the window at a very clean kitchen while you food is prepared is a plus or calling ahead so there is no wait to pick up your order. The employees are friendly and polite.

Stop here after hiking /exploring Ohio's Shawnee State park. You'll love the food and setting. Looks nice & clean inside and out. Great picnic tables. Miniature golf too!!! IT's a very relaxing road stop and reasonable too.

My husband and I never miss eating here when we are in the area, it's a hotdog and hamburger type of place with very good food and delicious milkshakes. They do have a lot to choose from plus pizza too and we have always enjoyed eating there.

Buckeye Dairy Bar is an institution in the area due to the friendly staff, extremely clean facilities and lovely grounds. The mini-golf course is really nice!! The food is good by dairy bar standards and my favorite is their Banana Split in a cup or the Buckeye ice cream...YUM!

We were told about this place from the locals, who said it was the best burger around. We got there, ordered, but other people who ordered after us, got their food first. It took a long time to get our order. The burger wasn't the best we've ever had, I would compare it to McDonalds or A & W type... More
