All Time Favorite!

As a resident of Manassas, we visit the dairy bar often. I love the ice cream! They also have a daily sherbert flavor that is sure to satisfy your taste buds.

My all-time favorite place for ice cream. Yummy creations. If you have a dog, be sure to get the pup cup for your favorite pal - comes with a Milkbone. We take our three furry friends at least twice a month during the summer. And they all get a Milkbone. On the people side, try the sherbet freeze, very refreshing.... More

I work in and office down from Nathans. Every year we can't wait till they open. We have been there twice this year already. They opened last Wednesday. Our boss treats us sometimes. They have the best ice cream, milkshakes and the flavors change weekly. The lines are proof of how great this place is. Bring your dogs. They get... More

In my opinion Nathan's has the best ice cream with a wide selection of flavorings. This is a soft ice cream that is made by and exclusive to Nathan's. You can get sundaes, shakes, cones, and even items like strawberry shortcake. Don't let the long line deter you it moves fast and is a good way to socialize and meet... More

I needed a place to take my daughter to beat the heat that day (it was like 100 degrees), but I didn't want to spend a fortune. Nathan's was great! They are friendly, affordable and they have the best tasting treats.

Every spring I anticipate the re-opening of Nathan's Dairy Bar. There is nothing quite like fresh made ice cream. Nathan's always has a variety of flavors to suit almost any palate. If you go by there and see a long line, don't drive by. Those kids hustle and move the line pretty quickly.

Great selection. They regularly change their feature soft serve and sherbet flavors. Check their Facebook page for latest flavors and discount offers. Bring your dogs- they get a free pup cup- vanilla soft serve with a biscuit on top.
