Nathan's has some of the best ice cream around, hands down. From chocolate and vanilla to shaved ices.

Excellent soft serve! Be prepared to stand in line and not complain. They move people through quickly and it is worth the wait. The movie theater and miniature golf can't get much closer to make a family night out.

We absolutely love Nathan's. They have some of the best ice cream in Manassas. You can always find a long line there during the summer weekends.

If you have a free afternoon please take the time to visit Nathans Dairy bar. They top any of their competitors in the area. Extra plus for dog owners....they have doggie scoops!

After coming to the Manassas area I heard about the dueling soft serve war of Klines versus Nathan's and initially I really thought I would end up as a Klines fan. Mainly that was because it was explained to me that Klines is very simple as in only three flavored and old school soft serve and that Nathan's does flavored... More

The best ice cream and sherbet on this planet. Great place with a friendly staff. They also support great causes and have specials on their Facebook page.

I'm torn, because I used to be such a hardcore fan of Kline's in Manassas, especially the Boston Shake. I thought I would give this place a try and its now my new favorite ice cream joint in all of Northern VA! While Klines is still very good, I would give a slight edge to Nathan's, as I find their...

I stopped by here after seeing a crazy long line on a Friday evening and now I know why so many people were waiting to get ice cream. I've been to other places like this but none offer such high quality food at Nathan's extremely reasonable rates. From kids cups to large cones with a wide variety of flavors (some... More

Nathan's is, hands down, the best soft serve anywhere. Their peanut butter shake is like sipping Jiff straight from the jar. Just be warned most of the time there is a line.

The soft serve was creamy and delicious. I would definitely go back again if I ever travel to that area.
