We tried three of their ice creams. The vanilla tasted like hairspray. We all took a taste snd agreed. I threw it out. The chocolate chip mint was artifical tasting as well.

Montdale Dairy has the best ice cream in the Scranton area. A huge selection of flavors that are all hand dipped. Great milk too! Try some--you won't be disappointed!

If you are up for a quick snack as a family and sit u see the large umbrellas in the shade. They have so many flavors you can always try a new flavor.

I have been going to the Montdale Dairy since I was a small child and it is still my favorite ice cream place. Their ice cream is made in house and their selection of flavors is huge but their chocolate is still me favorite.

The Montdale Dairy came highly recommended so we had to stop in for sundaes on our way by. The warm brownie sundae & the fluffer nutter sundae were both delicious, generously sized, and covered in yummy fresh toppings. We hope to go back soon!

I grew up on Mondale's ice cream and yes it's changed from then but it's still pretty good. They offer basic standby's like strawberry and crazy flavors like Teaberry gum( I haven't tried that). The smurf used to be real blueberry ice cream with melted marshmallow through it but now it's a strange blue funny flavored ice cream with hard,... More

Stopped here our way home. Got the blackraspberry recommended by a friend. Sooooo good. All were pleased. Just don't trust your GPS to get you here. Definitely on Rt. 438 which in the middle of nowhere. If you blink,you might miss it!
