A UCONN alum, I'm prejudiced. However, my wife has no allegiance and says it's the best ice cream. When we"re visiting family in Danbury, we make the 90 minute trip for the ice cream. First, we have "lunch" of a sundae or a few scoops of ice cream. After going to the Coop, we return to get a milkshake for... More

The Dairy Bar is my second favorite ice cream place in CT (Rich Farm in Oxford being my favorite), but their coconut ice cream is the BEST I have ever had. Other favorite flavors are toasted almond and banana chocolate chip. They have a lengthy list of flavors with some standards that are always available and some rotating in and... More

This is the real deal. Toasted almond, creamy and oh so delicious. Real hot fudge topping. The staff was polite and courteous and the pallor was spotless as was the picnic area outside. The portions are large and the selection of flavors was good. The only reason I did rate my visit with 5 stars was that they use canned... More

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
