This place is really as bad as everyone is saying,went there this Saturday town wide tag sale For the life of me I don't understand why they didn't have more help,the wait staff was wonderful we had the short chubby girl with blonde hair she checked on us several times and said sorry it is taking so long,when we finally did get it everything was cold,overcooked,and greasy!!Won't be back anytime soon

I have to agree I also overheard the cook telling other patrons that she is buying the Dairy Bar I had no idea it was even up for sale but whatever. I used to frequent the Dairy Bar quite regular mostly lunch/early dinner and on weekends for breakfast here is what I dont understand on Saturdays the place is packed and there is only 2 girls one one cook (Chac they call him?) and they are al so fast and the food is awesome,yet if we go on a sunday there is 3 girls and about 4 cooks its not nearly as busy as a saturday they have twice the help it takes longer to get your food and its never the same I find for myself I like the cook so much better on saturdays and your in and out,the staff on sunday all look like there in another world sometimes you get your coffee sometimes you wait 5-10 mins and then when you get it they don't bring the cream its always something I am not taking sides but I no my experience from dinner/lunch and saturdays are completley different than a Sunday. And since the girl that cooks on Sunday is buying it she should be a little more on her game and watch her staff.

Hey Sam R If you read the previous post correct it said the boy helping the girl.Second it is coming from the girls mouth that works on Sundays that she is buying the business,she is the one spouting on about it and third yes it does take that long we used to go every Sunday after Mass.and it took to long no matter how many or few people were in it so in closing Sam I can only guess that you must be one of the owners non-owners whatever they call themselves friends. Prospect is a small town and word get around fast.Horrraayyy for you if you a great meal and your daughter loves it thats fantastic.As a matter of fact I belive it was Carol Jones herself at the Senior Picnic that said she was selling because she couldn't do it anymore and when asked why doesn't she let her son take over she replied "I can't get him to do anything for me are you kidding" As I drive by I can only shake my head in shame for what was once a landmark in town is now another eye-sore.Spill the Beans is the place to eat now and if you go by the parking lot on any given day you will see that.

First off, for the previous reviewer, it is the same owners as it always has been. Nothing has changed. Second a girl cooks on Sundays, and third it does not take that long for breakfast. Not even close. I'm not sure why you are writing lies about the dairy bar. It is a great place. We go there every Sunday and order the hash and cheese omelette. It is amazing. My daughter is a very picky eater and she eats ALL her breakfast there. Owners are great and so are the waitstaff.

we stopped in on a saturday afternoon and had a great homecooked meal. I had the Meatloaf Dinner, my wife had the fresh fried clam strips. We had our grandchildren with us an they LOVED the Kids cars. We had a tough time finding room for dessert but they just opened an ice cream parlor and we had to try it out. What a great trip, we will be back.

The Prospect Dairy Bar is in a prime location for those passerbys. They offer quick service and very tasty food. Of course, the ice cream is delicious. I'd recommend them to anyone in the area.

My kids really like to come here because the kids meals are served in a car shaped box. I think it is only average. There is nothing other than paper boxes here, that you can't get anywhere else. The last time I was in, the staff was somewhat rude to my family, kicking us out of one of their 'big booths' because we were a party of four, not five or more. We were the ONLY people in the place. They really made use switch tables. Iguess if that is how they treat guests, no wonder we weer the only ones there!

I love coming here for lunch and dinner, or even breakfast. The whole place has a 50's look. They even have a working juke box. The food is awesome and the kids meals are always fun if you have kids. Everything is very clean and sanitary. The employees are really friendly

Only thing missing from this restaurant is the poodle skirts and roller skates. But they don't need them with their fountain sodas, tasty burgers and fries. Kids meals come in a 50's style paper car they can bring home. Worth the stop, your kids will have a blast seeing their parents remember the good old days.

The Prospect Dairy Bar offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can even just stop in for desert or a great malted. Service is quick and personable and the food tastes great, no matter what you order. The atmosphere is inviting of older times and provides you with a relaxed feeling while eating.

Although there are even cheaper places to have breakfast in town, the Dairy Bar is great place to eat. It has a nice homey feel, which adds to the spirit of this small town. The food is good and the service is quick. It is a fun place to bring the family with the old jukebox and Cadillac trays.

When I was a kid I always remembered they had the best hot dogs here. Now, when we're in town, my kids love them too, they also love the old time feel of the place and the fact that their kids meals come in cardboard 50's cars.

I accidently found my way to this great restaurant in need of a quick bite to eat. Upon entering I am overwhelmed by the amount of older nostalgies such as, old coke clocks and old gas pumps.
The food quality is excellent and the price of it is probably next to impossible to beat with food of that quality. I was also very impressed with the survice and the staff. The staff treats you as if your the only thing that matters in the entire restaurant. The food is cooked in the same room where the tables are.
The parking can be a bit cumbersome, but it is manageable.
In conclusion, this is definatly a place that I recommend to friends, family or anybody looking for some good food at a great price. If I was in this area, I would definatly make another trip there for lunch, dinner or a quick bite to eat
