Great vanilla cokes, and wonderful ice cream. Friendly servers. Have gone a couple of years now. Nothing bad ever!

We ordered the sloppy joes and a custard sundae. Both were good and just what we had hoped for. Note that there is only outdoor seating and that the place is only open seasonally (closes for the winter). But I recommend a visit.

The service was great and fast and the staff friendly. The potato salad is some of the best we've ever had. We also recommend the Made Rite sandwich if you've never had one. We absolutely will return.

Having driven by several times we decided to give it a try. The custard was ok and got the job done but was not noteworthy. My daughter who is lactose intolerant got a raspberry smoothie. It was fantastic! The outdoor seating is nicely shaded.

Every once in a while you just need a giant serving of custard with tons of peanut butter and chocolate and everything else you can imagine. I have loved everything I've eaten here. It's so cool that it has a drive thru too! So if our little one is sleeping, we can just drive through and not have to wake... More

The custard is good, but if your looking for high quality ice cream, head down the road to Graters, next to City BBQ. The price here is just too high for what it is. On par with Culvers for twice the price.

Driven past this Old Custard Stand many times and finally decided to try their ice cream. Have had custard ice cream in the past and had high expectations. Was disappointed that it tasted like store bought ice cream. Nothing special and was expensive too. Sorry, but will not be back.

Unimpressive. $5 minimum debit charge so I had to get a large sundae. The custard was inferior to larger chain Carvers and toppings were sparse given the price. Would rather go down the street to Graeters

This is a seasonal custard stand. Well maintained and neat outdoor seating. There are many specialty sundaes that we choose from. I got the German chocolate that has pecans and coconut plus chocolate custard. You can get whip cream on top if you ask for it. My wife likes the Turtle sundae made with butter pecan ice cream. This is... More

Wish it was open all year round but they keep the old Dairy Queen tradition of closing for the winter. It just makes it more tasty in the spring when they open. Custard only! No sandwiches or other fare. Outdoor seating or drive-thru only. Rich, smooth and thick. Outstanding. The Tornados (think DQ Flurrie™) are my favorite with Heath™ Bar... More
