“Great ice cream and experience!”
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.

“Great ice cream and experience!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

I visit here often to get ice cream. It's delicious and the employees are always very nice and make the experience worth while. The walk-up ice cream stand set up makes visiting a unique and fun experience, especially in the summer.

Great local ice cream and fun atmosphere. Several locations--also in Staunton. Just a few flavors, but all great!

“Great ice cream”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

My wife and I both had sundaes. We had heard about their chocolate peanut butter ice cream but it wasn't available that week (specialty flavors rotate availability). I instead had peanut butter sauce and strawberries. It was fantastic!

“The BEST Ice Cream”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

You simply can't beat Kline's soft served ice cream, sundaes and malts. Even on a busy night, their service is prompt and courteous. Still, you don't mind waiting because you are likely to run into friends there, even if you are from out of town.
