Great small place for dinner or lunch. Reasonable foods and very tasty. We had a dinner cheeseburger platter and split it between my husband and I. My daughter had chicken tenders kids meal. We also had corn chowder which was delicious. It is very reasonably priced. We highly recommend the apple crisp Sundae. Delicious. Great servers too!

This was my first time here, I’ve driven by so many times but never stopped. What a great little ice cream spot! The place has a fifties diner feel to it and has friendly, efficient service. I got the brownie sundae, which was fantastic. We also got fried dough, which was really good.

This is a super clean, diner style restaurant/ice cream parlor, with a counter and stools, some tables and take out windows common to most ice cream stores. The menu is really extensive and the food was super fresh, very well prepared, and the portions were ginormous! Between us we had corn chowder; a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich; a lobster...

This was our first time here. The place has a fifties-sixties diner ambiance in a really good way. The service is prompt and efficient. I had the scallops, fresh, fried just right, with fries as we'll as a garden salad. The salad was crisp and fresh, seriously, you think they just harvested it five minutes ago it was that fresh....

I can only comment on the soft ice cream. We didn't eat any food, though they serve burgers, hot dogs, fries, onion rings - all the usual snack bar type foods including lobster rolls year round. The outside of the building looks like it's right out of the 50's, and I guess it's been around forever. Sits right across the... More

Dari Joy is not far from where I live. It opens in Spring and closes down for the Winter. Its a take out stand where you order your food and wait while it is prepared, and they call you. Also a great variety of ice cream deserts and cones. The parking lot is a little small for the amount of... More

Very crowded when were were there so we were directed to another "dining room" which is used for overflow maybe? We sat and sat and sat. Finally one of the waitresses came through and we asked if we could order. Our answer was that nobody waits on that area and we would have to go outside to the window or... More
