We were greeted by a pleasant man and woman (probably the owners). The entrance had what appeared to be like laser lights on the floor which was a great novelty. My wife had small hot fudge sundae. When she got the sundae she said she wanted a small one and was told that is the small. I myself had a... More

Best ice cream ......anywhere!!! Forget paying for cold stone or gross fryo, come to Dunphys for a true ice cream experience! It's a family and town favorite! I get my daughters birthday cakes here and they're always amazing and never a piece left over!! It's a small place and gets crowded, but its worth the wait....and very inexpensive!!! Win win!!

Whenever I'm in the mood for ice cream, milkshakes, or soft serve the first place I go to is dunphy's. They have sooo many favors and are very generous with their portions. Dunphy's has never disspointed me!

Every summer when I visit my relatives, Dunphy's is our first evening stop and has been for years. With generous portions - their single-scoop looks more like a double-scoop - and assortment of flavors, it's impossible to leave this shop with one's sweet tooth unsatisfied.

This is a busy place and once you go there you'll understand why! They have a good variety of different flavors and serve generous portions. Very friendly - what is not to like about Dunphy's?

Kevin and Gail and their staff always do a great job whether it's a stop in for a cone, sundae's to go, or a custom made cake. Prices are great and service is excellent. The only reason this isn't a five is that I like gourmet ice cream and they serve Hershey's. If you love Hershey Ice Cream then just... More

We've been visiting for a few years now and it's the best place in town - even the state! The people are friendly and the staff very helpful! The ice cream is the best, so delicious - Hersheys!!

They have really good ice cream at reasonable prices with a broad selection of flavors. I've been coming to Dunphy's since I was a kid and it brings back good memories every times I come back; we used to have birthday parties here, I've always found them friendly and accommodating.
