“Kline's is the best...”
Review of Kline's Dairy Bar

Kline's Dairy Bar
Ranked #1 of 8 Dessert in Harrisonburg
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$3 - US$6
Description: What makes Kline's ice cream so smooth and creamy with an unbelievably delicious taste? It's all in the production method and ingredients. We take the quality of our ice cream very seriously. High quality ingredients and an old fashion ice cream making technique has made Kline's an institution since 1943. Unlike the more popular and profitable soft serve and batch methods of producing ice cream, Kline's employs an almost obsolete process of continuous freeze production. Other methods can yield several times more ice cream because of the air being pumped in during the whipping process. The continuous freeze method used by Kline's, however, does not add extra air to the product. It is a very slow and labor intensive process. Each location makes their own fresh ice cream each morning for the day's sales.

“Kline's is the best...”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

I grew up going to Klines. Preserving the best of its heritage, as well as the die-for taste, Klines has expanded with more stores. In the warm weather, people stand in line to get their enjoyment of the wonderful creamy taste of Klines. Made fresh at the store each day, the store offers a special flavor of the week, in addition to vanilla and chocolate. If you are on vacation, this is a must stop for local flavor!

“The Best There Is”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

The most amazing ice cream I've ever had. I LOVED Kline's.

The have the staple flavors, then a new flavor every week. And they NEVER disappoint.

It's sort of like an ice cream stand; it's not indoors. Just something to keep in mind.

“Excellent Ice Cream”
Reviewed 6 December 2011

The vanilla ice cream is terric -- possibly the best we have ever tasted. Portions are generous and the prices are reasonable. There are two locations -- one downtown and the other on the southside of town. Both are equally good.

“Yummmy ice cream”
Reviewed 5 December 2011

We love to find local places to go so while we were vacationing in the area we asked someone about a local ice cream place and they sent us here...they don't have many flavors and it is only soft serve but it was delicious so we did not care about the lack of variety....well worth the stop....
