When we visited the ice cream machine was broken and only vanilla was available. It was your standard softee ice cream. This former DQ is pure no frills.

Essentially a Dairy Queen closed and reopened by a private label. All the machines and choice are the same but not using the DQ names. It's a great place for a cold treat.

Must do for dessert! Very generous on toppings! Great prices, way better than a Dairy Queen! Super nice guys!

Stopped in after Wings. Great selection and huge portions. Definitely very overpriced but the portion made up for it somewhat. The guy at the counter was super nice and friendly and the place was very clean! Kids had a cookie dough blizzard and a mint Oreo waffle cone and they both loved it. Full of toppings mixed in!

This is the old Surf City DQ. We pretty much had the same thing we have been having there for a decade with a different name. Just as good for sure.

The best part of this place are the guys that serve you. Cool, friendly guys that make you want to go back and say hi.

It is really clean.

I wish they accepted credit cards. One of few places left that are cash only.
