Delicious ice cream!!!

Stopped here before heading home after dropping my nephew off at college. Delicious ice cream, great toppings and the shakes were amazing. Several interesting flavors and sundae choices as well as the flavor of the year. Worth a stop for sure!!!

Mm good . Ice cream is made on the premises from cows raised at the UConn dairy. Some of the best ice cream I've ever eaten. Usually there are lines especially on week ends and in the summer, but well worth the wait.

Always enjoy stopping here when visiting my daughter at college. the ice cream is smooth and creamy. The portions are large and our favorite is the banana chocolate chip.

Our son and his wife go to UCONN when they come to visit they always bring the ice cream and eggs. VERY VERY few places match the quality and taste of this ice cream !!!! they make in house using ingredents ( cream etc.) from there farm. If you know someone that goes to UCONN either visit or cojoule them... More

Our first trip to Storrs was a complete success, thanks to a stop at The Dairy Bar! What a place ... we need one of these at home!!! Just as billed this spot has perhaps the finest ice cream anywhere. They have many an option, but the "cake batter" was over the top. Never had anything quite like this!!! Our... More

Monthly specials! Absolutely the freshest ice cream in the state! Wonderful flavors, cookie sandwiches, ice cream pies, and farm fresh eggs and cheeses! But.... Expect a line... It's that good!

Indoor and outdoor seating. Open late (until 10pm) all summer. The 2 scoop portion is in a 12oz cup and is filled to the brim. (Giant!) The ice cream choices are plentiful and the taste is creamy and amazing. You can't go wrong with the Oreo flavor! Quick service fun atmosphere.

Although I'm originally from CT., I've never eaten the ice cream at the UConn Dairy Bar until a recent visit back home. My significant other were touring the UConn Campus and heard prior that they make their own ice cream. It was worth the trip! Their ice cream is delicious! They have tons of flavors to choose from and their... More

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.
