“Wow. ”
Review of Dairy Lodge

Dairy Lodge
Ranked #10 of 16 Quick Bites in Traverse City
Restaurant details
Reviewed 27 June 2017 via mobile

This is the real deal.

I assumed this was like every typical soft serve ice cream spot. Boy, was I wrong!

Dairy Lodge serves very creamy, delicious soft serve. Their toppings are generous and good quality. They take their time with service and it's worth the short wait! I regret not trying it sooner!

They have some unique items, too, but we aren't familiar with what they are-- something with fruity pebbles and the kids around us in line were raving about their Dip. My only suggestion is to take photos of these "specialties" and post on the side of the building so us newbies can get a better idea of these items while we wait in line.

Bring cash, no credit cards.

And don't complain when it takes a minute or two to get your order. This is the best around Traverse City and beyond.

Lining up for an icecream at the Dairy Lodge must be a Traverse City institution, (complete with the slightly random "Christmas Angel" on the roof) judging by the queue. But it moved quickly and was part of the experience. Try the Turtle or a Peanut Butter Cup Flurry - yum.

I got a Reese's peanut butter cup flurry and it was good. My husband got a butter finger one. Parking free on the street. Staff were friendly.

Great neighborhood outside window ice cream shop. Several selections of sundaes and flurries and other ice cream treats are available. Fast food-hamburgers and hot dogs-are also available. The turtle sundae was awesome, and seems to be a neighborhood favorite. I'm very impressed the shop is still open in November.
