Went for the hamburgers, stayed for the ice cream. This place was AMAZING. Fantastic old school atmosphere. Prices are about what you would expect for a tourist Jersey shore area, but oh so worth it. The employees were so very friendly, from the young lad...More

They have the best ice cream. My son in law loves their orange soft serve. I enjoy the chocolate soft serve with chocolate jimmies. Hubby had a twist soft serve. Best ice cream in Margate!!!

My wife, two children and I ate ice cream here several times in July 2018. I had chocolate banana ice cream. It is always very busy in the evening and open until midnight.

I visited the Dairy Bar based on TA's good reviews. As others have noted, the Dairy Bar is clean, and well designed. Their ice cream is average/good. But $4.99 for 2 scoops? $4.29 for a kid's serving?? C'mon, That's crazy even for the shore.
