We were there after Winterfest for ice cream, and the offerings, atmosphere, and service were all excellent. Great quality ice cream. Most impressive was the service. Most times when you are ordering only dessert or drink your table is low priority to a server, but...More

The food here is simply ok, if you are hungry it will get you fed but not a sub to write home about. The service is fast and the fries are alright. I am not sure about any other dishes.

This is a long-established restaurant that serves great ice cream My wife and I stopped here after dinner for a treat. We were not disappointed. Very creamy, plentiful 2 scoop sundae. I was full after eating my sundae. The service was quick and friendly.

These places seem to be everywhere. Nicely priced cones and sundaes. The 2 scoop sundae is HUGE. I could hardly finish it. Highly recommend Dumsers!

Try a chocolate shake and ask them to blend in a banana not the banana ice cream! Sooo good! Prices are reasonable and tons of items to choose from.
