“Value menu? Please.”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Overpriced, overcooked, under-seasoned burgers. Not fond of the Charlottetown location at all. The staff seems laxadaisical and almost put-out to serve people at times.

Reviewed 22 June 2014

After a lovely dinner we wanted to visit DQ since there are none where we live.We thought we would bring back to the hotel a sundae and settle in for the night,but they were OUT OF CHOCOLATE................COME ON ! your a Dairy Queen and had NO CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM. That's like the Golden Arches not having burgers,Pizza HUT has no cheese ! PEI without the I. SHAME SHAME SHAME.

“Great ice cream, Garbage burgers.”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Well I must say I truly enjoy dairy queen in the summertime for fantastic ice cream, blizzards, and milkshakes(the large is barely finishable it is so big). The flip side is their hot food . I have tried a few different menu items now wanting to give them a fair chance but have been very disappointed every single time. Cold fries everytime (par for the course at most fast food places) but also lifeless,tasteless, cold, and horribly textured burgers and sandwiches. I just don't get it. At any rate I will continue to stop in for the frozen treats which are always spot on but that is all.Too bad they just didn't stick to dairy or they would have a solid 5 star rating. Just as a footnote the staff seem very friendly at the counter and always do a great job, too bad the product just doesn't match up.

“Always a good place to eat, re. fast food”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

4 of us enjoyed our lunches here, and my daughter and I enjoyed our chili dogs, and tasty fries. Her friend loved the onion rings with her meal. Service was a wee bit slow that day, and we do find the wait is always quite a bit at most D.Q.'s, for hot food, but it's their good fast-food taste that keeps us going there, when we eat fast foods occasionally.

“Best french fries”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

On an island where potatoes are elevated to an art form, I tried french fries at seven establishments, each claiming to make the best fries. Leave it to the unpretentious eighth establishment, Dairy Queen, to serve perfectly cooked, crispy fries that surpassed pricier competitors. To paraphrase a former California governor, 'I'll be back".
