Great ice cream - during any season

We have been fans of the University of Connecticut Dairy Bar for 25 plus years. They have a vast selection of delicious flavors but vanilla is my favorite. Summer seasonal flavors are great too. Cones and dishes of several sizes are available with a myriad of toppings. Sundae's are plentiful... read more

Excellent varieties and quality of Icecream - made right there on the premises from UConn's own dairy cows. Generous scoops... worth the line at times.

I graduated from UConn many years ago. In those days we trekked over to the Dairy Bar at the first signs of spring's warm weather. Now whenever we're on campus we stop for ice cream. It's especially fun when we bring our grandchildren who love the choice of flavors. It gives us a chance to tell what UConn was like... More

Perhaps I should not write a review without having tasted the ice cream, which is undoubtedly very good. However, I would like to warn potential customers that they may have to wait in line for a while. We arrived on an admittedly unusually warm spring day and, after finding a parking space with difficulty, found a line of at least... More

Full disclosure - I went to UCONN way back when and fell in love with their ice cream then. I have watched the Dairy Bar go from literally a little hole in the wall to the facility they have now. Great ice cream, generous servings and reasonable prices. You know a place is good when it's February and snowing and... More

What is it - They are trying to teach the Students about producing ice cream, which they really excel out - No question the Ice Cream is first rate. But they should get the school of business involved when it comes to running a retail service. They were busy - You had to wait - Yup - But never call... More

Long lines on the college campus are worth it. They move quickly. They do need more seating but only because they are so good - don't miss this stop for an ice cream treat that simply the best

The quality of this ice-cream is outstanding - very rich and tasty. It is made right on the campus of the University of Connecticut. The servings are very large and the price is extremely reasonable. A great place for bringing guests as you show them around the beautiful UConn campus, or a place to have a treat following a performance... More
