“Old School Ice Cream Joint”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

One of the first hot days of 2014 when we stumbled upon this place. Old School Ice Cream joint started back in the 20's I believe. We went for the regular shakes and they were good and thick, long lines but they move you in and out pretty fast. Saw some folks picking up some ice cream cakes that were looking pretty good, Large variety of things ice cream. Stop on in but don't be surprised if you are greeted by a long line.

“Delicious ice cream!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This quaint ice cream shoppe has history or at least has the appearance of one. It always has long lines on warm nights especially in the summertime, but they move fast! Lots of flavor store choose from as well as hard ice cream to soft to shakes to sundaes. It is reasonably priced.

Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Thats not the place shown. One of the last old school ice cream places left. Long lines in the summer but well worth the wait!

“Ice cream for dinner”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This place is a good place to come for a meal...their portions are large and the ice cream and gelatis are delicious enough to eat all of it. What I recommend for a treat is come here first, eat what you like. Then if you still have room, eat dinner! The strawberry ice cream is especially great, but try the mango or root beer gelatis. Yum! Rita's, take note...you don't compare.

“The best ice cream in the Lehigh Valley”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

The Bethlehem Dairy Store serves up consistently the best ice cream in the Lehigh Valley. With a large variety of different flavors, toppings and types of ice creams, you are sure to find something you'd like. Service is always good, lines move quickly - and the lines can get long in the summer!
