It's a very busy place but I like the fact that they have lots of choices and good sized portions. The staff do their best to serve people quickly so even though there is a huge line it's not usually quite as long of a wait as you would expect.

Consistency is a key to have a successful business and Milky Way has achieved this. There are always new specials to try and your favourite flavours are always there too.

We went for ice cream last night and even though there was a bit of a line we were served within minutes. The soft swirl ice cream is my favorite but my son had a coconut milkshake that was so good it might become my favorite!

Spring doesn't officially arrive until the Milky Way opens and it's always a sad day when it closes for the winter. Whether just dropping by or sticking around to visit with friends and family on the red benches there is no better place to be on a hot summer's night. The menu features countless flavours of hard ice cream and... More

Milky Way is seriously overrated. The milkshakes are decent but overall average. The last time I was there I was hassled by some really shady people as this isn't in a great area. Not worth it to me. Probably won't be returning.

Flavor of the Day - Blackberry. I now have two FOD favorites. Blackberry and long time favorite, Lemon. Friendly service. Great ice cream Neat tidy clean. Walk up windows - usually a line up but worth the wait! Long live Milky Way 😎

This place always has a line up down the street but it's for a reason! The best ice cream in Regina for a good price with very good serving sizes

Milky Way... A gem of an ice cream stop on Victoria Ave. I have been to Milky Way a variety of times and each one was a trip well worth taking. A really big menu of stuff to choose from but best of all is the soft serve. With Flavour of the Day and Milkshake & Cyclone of The Week,... More

Good cool treats. Lines are very long on a hot day. Standing room only. Would be nice if there was a way to eliminate the long lineup.

Description
This building serving their soft serve ice cream has been there for many years. We have eaten ice cream there for over 30 years. Their soft ice cream (several flavors, depending on the day) is the best and that is what I always order. The soft serve chocolate is the best flavor and I have never had any to compare to Milky Way chocolate soft ice cream. They have "flavor of the day" and also serve many, many flavors of hard ice cream. Customers cannot wait for the Milky Way to open in the spring and watch the weather for when it closes in the fall so they can get their "last ice cream" there till it reopens in the spring. The line-ups are long, especially in the evenings, so plan to wait before you can order what you want. My last few visits they had to open the third serving window because the line-ups were so long. We were talking with someone who had visited friends in Regina and they told us about this ice cream place that was "so good" but could not remember the name of it -- they did not have to remember the name because we knew it was the "Milky Way".
