Dunphy's has a great staff very considerate and kind. It also serves great ice cream at a great price, the portions are bigger than usual so watch if you really want a single order it. You will have enough!

They must have 30 hard scoop flavors, plus they have soft serve. Waffle cones in two sizes, sugar and regular cones, plus milkshakes and more. Just had salted caramel while my daughter in law had salted caramel cookie dough. Delightfully creamy ice cream.

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?
