Great afternoon

Delicious. Had some peach ice cream and the fruit pieces were huge! A great treat after visiting the dairy cows up the hill and wandering through the barn and seeing them be fed and milked. Seeing the horse barn was a fun time as well. A great family outing.

High fat content, excellent flavor choices (my favorite is the espresso coffee crunch). Child size is more than enough for me! The dairy bar also sells fresh eggs and some dairy products.

Can't remember having a creamier, better tasting ice cream cone! Even a delicious dairy-free option. Sit outside and enjoy the lovely view. And don't let the line intimidate you -- they have a good system and it moves pretty quickly.

Superb smooth flavors! Unlike our brilliant engineer colleague Thom-Joseph, we beg to differ and offer UConn dairy Bar Five Golden Stars! His delightful Grace concurs. Yes, can be an issue if you are unable to walk a distance or pressed for time. Perhaps St. Louis "concrete" would do well here, Thom-Joseph? However, Our MIT colleague would also prefer additional frozen... More

Delectable tasting ice cream varieties, but short on frozen yogurt flavors for this engineering missionary palate! Our official travels that includes some time through CT has afforded us herbs, gardens, and decent enough dining experiences--with a bit of hit and some miss-discretion and discernment. My dear wife Grace is intending we build a home near CT shores influenced by my... More

Fun family outing. The best ice cream anywhere. Beware, Husky Tracks become addictive. Beautiful view at Horse Barn Hill.

This dairy bar does a great job with a fine selection of products. The service was rapid. Looks like they employ students who have great smiles. They move rapidly and efficiently. They are well trained. The product and service experience are excellent!

This is a great place to stop by with your family. The ice cream is amazing and the scoops are huge! They also sale ice cream to go which can be a good idea for a weekend dessert.

UConn Dairy Bar is one of the best known attractions in the area. On a hot summer weekend afternoon, the line can stretch well out into the parking lot, but it moves fast and is always worth the wait. Flavors vary but always include around two dozen, including my new favorites, Salted Caramel Crunch and Toasted Almond Amaretto. Portions are... More
