Celebrity Pizza and Dairy Bar looks like one of those seafood shacks that should belong on a beach near a seaside town somewhere. They serve 24 flavors of soft serve ice cream, pizza, sandwiches, and various types of fried seafood / lobster rolls.
Interestingly enough, it’s smack in the middle of Watertown, Massachusetts, a town about 20 minutes outside of Boston. On a nice day, you can sit at the picnic benches right outside the shack, where you can almost feel like you’re at a seaside town, just without the ocean. 😛
The soft serve is solid, though not super interesting. I tried the creamsicle (orange sorbet and vanilla). The mix of the two different textures (sherbet + ice cream) threw me off guard, and I didn’t like it that much. The next time I just got vanilla, which tasted no different than McDonalds but cost twice as much.
I think what I should have done is either try one of the 24 interesting flavors or try a chocolate dipped cone, which looks kind of fun. Maybe next time.
Two downsides of this place
1. No public restrooms. So . . make sure you go before coming, otherwise you might be a bit uncomfortable!
2. Cash only, although there is an ATM right inside the restaurant
This is a fun, very reasonably priced place for lunch. If you don’t feel like driving all the way to a seaside town for some fried seafood and soft serve, you can head to Watertown and get a pretty solid version of the same.
