I am a huge ice cream lover. I absolutely died when we ate ice cream at the Dairy Barn. We were told it was a "must" while on campus. It was wonderful and a great place to stop on a summer evening. Stop by and try :)

If there is better ice cream anywhere, I'd like to find it. Great flavors, very fresh and great portions. I had thought that I found the best ice cream at Brickley's in Wakefield, RI but the UCONN Dairy Bar is better! Ate a pint of the cookies and cream today (can't stop once I start, it's that good) and the... More

Delicious ice cream with many different flavors. Ice cream is made right there on campus. There are tables inside and picnic tables outside. The Dairy Bar is open all day until 10:00 PM in the summer.

I've been going here for 35 years and the quality remains the same. Some of the best ice cream in the region - Coldstone has nothing on these guys! Visit if you want a real blast-from-the-past...

A friend of mine and I drove up for a day trip to Storrs to hang out at UConn. The Dairy Bar was by far the best treat of the day. The ice cream is amazing. You HAVE to get the blue and white sprinkles. I kid you not, they are the best (crunchy, not waxy!!) I had the cookie... More

You haven't tasted ice cream until you visit the Dairy Bar...and beware of a 'small' size-the ice cream is overflowing! Kudos also for absolute cleanliness.

Inside is very basic and utilitarian. Some neat UCONN history. Ice cream is excellent. Rich and creamy only begins to describe it.

Went up to UConn to tour College with my daughter. No I'm hoping she'll go there just so I can get the ice cream from the Dairy Bar on a regular basis! We had the Husky tracks, chocolate chip, coffee and mint chip. All were outstanding, just like homemade ice cream of the past. If we didn't have such a... More

This was an unexpected delight. The staff are young, friendly and generous. It may not be typical but it is what typical ought to be. It has a certain small-town down-home atmosphere, even old-fashioned in a way. I didn't count the number of flavours, nor measure the size of the portions. They sell butter and eggs as well, and it... More
