We had a couple of hot fudge sundaes here last weeks. The ice cream and hot fudge were good, BUT....they are sneaky, they fill the cup from the outside of the cup which creates a void or space in the middle of the cup. Not a big deal, but you are getting cheated out of about 2-3 ounces of product

We stopped by The Dairy Twist for 3 two pound+ lobsters and the were FANTASTIC. They steamed them, cleaned them and cracked them. We ate them and MMM. They have a fantastic assortment of seafood along with a huge variety of hard and soft ice cream. A must when in the area.

This ice cream place has been here for years. They put out consistently good ice cream. In the past two years they have added fish? Sounds crazy. I don't know how it is since I would not buy any kind of fish product at an ice cream place. The ice cream however I can vouch for. It is good.

I love to bring my kids to this place or just me. They have alot of things you can get cheap. The ice cream to so good. The only thing is they really could use a out house or something like that because kids have to go to the bathroom and no were to go.

Stopped by for an afternoon treat. Had the medium butter pecan ice cream cone. Ice cream was excellent and the size exceeded our expectations.

The seafood is a good idea with poor execution. Clams went up 5 dollars per bag for the holiday weekend to 25 (was $20) for a bag of 50. Good thing I went to Dutches market so I knew they were selling smaller little necks for 9.99 / 50 bag. No need to price gouge if you want your locals... More

In response to your review. I was not price gouging anybody. My price for clams went up and unfortunetly there is a shortage of little necks iin the whole northeast. You can google this to find out about how the shortage. July is the biggest month for these clams so what I can get will be at this price until... More

Although it boasts 24 flavors of soft serve, it is only when you get to the counter that you read that a flavored soft serve costs $.75 more. Apparently, the ice cream is vanilla and the flavor must be added in. I ordered apple pie and frankly, I couldn't tell any flavor but a bit of caramel. It is very... More

An IGA employee recommended we try Dairy Twist for our ice cream treat. PERFECT! They had both hard and soft serve ice cream but the best thing is that they had a candy coated peanut coating that I always enjoy and is very hard to find anymore. Terrific ending to the day. Enjoyed this little find AGAIN the following day.
