Typical food. Friendly service. But I saw a cook picking his face. Sort of ruined it for me. What can I say? I’m sure it happens all the time but when you see it....

Dairy Queen is conveniently located as you arrive on the island. This location is always busy. There is no drive through window but plenty of space to eat in or outside. The wait time for your meal is longer than usual.

Stopped in for a quick treat. The people that work there were friendly and oh so fast with my order. I will go again.

It’s OK if you need an ice cream fix. Not too many choices on the Island. They also serve burgers and the typical DW Fare. There is seating in doors.

Great place for the money! For 5 bucks you get hot food fast. When I say fast, I mean that my son ordered the Chicken Tenders and they were delivered in LESS THAN @ Minutes. They treat every customer like they are Warren Buffet!(The Owner!)

As you would expect from DQ. Tied in with a gas station. I scream you scream. We ALL scream for ice cream.

Probably the best food deal on the island for a quick meal. If you have a large family or don't want to spend $15-$30 per person. On top of that there food was pretty good.
