The girl that served us was obviously not trained on how to use the machine to fill a cone with ice cream... look at the picture below... there was so little ice-cream, no swirl and it didn't even come to the edges anywhere. If you want to get ripped off almost $4 for the tiniest minuscule cone ever; then this... More

Service is excellent. Owners are usually on site which makes a huge difference in polite staff. Burgers are always great. Ice cream cakes are fantastic.

Burgers and ice cream, it's tough to mess up. With the shabbiness of the local McDonalds, I go to the DQ for my fast food fix. The drive thru can be kind of slow, but that's the price you have to pay for char-broiled goodness. My only suggestion is to change the POS system to accept tap; if TD won't... More

If you order ice cream good luck getting any toppings with it. They are the cheapest Dairy Queen I have ever been to and getting worse. This has been my local Dairy Queen for 15 years. I will no longer be providing them with my money. Today I order a hot fudge sundae there was barely any chocolate which is... More

They are officially the slowest fast food restaurant we have ever been t to, on more than one occasion we have waited 30 minutes or more in the drive thru. Also they have the habit of forgetting your order and after waiting inside for 45 minutes we would then have to remind them of what we had ordered. They have... More

The Sylvan DQ is a staple restaurant. About a block from the beach this burger shack makes some excellent cold and hot eats. Staff are friendly and the place is always busy. I've eaten at the Sylvan DQ on various visits and was always happy with the service and food.
