Tried a new flavor I have not seen before. It was the coconut seven layer bar and boy was it good. The staff was very nice and recommended some of their favorite flavors.

The kids loved Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream. Great way to cool off. They lines can be very long. Try to get your ice cream before sunset to afford a long wait.

Delicious high quality ice cream. Great location on the waterfront. Staff was grumpy with our group of 8 for ordering 6 milkshakes and the snide remarks about having to make so many milkshakes is the only reason for the three stars. We paid on one tab and tipped well so the extra effort was repaid despite the lacking service. The... More

Years ago B&J ran a contest if you knew the captial of VT you got a free cone. My husband did. So for fun we decided to ask the staff at B&J if they knew the capital of Vermont, we thought they should know since the ice cream comes from Vermont. They didn't and we got to tease them quite... More

The place was very busy on a Saturday evening. The service at the outside window was quick. I saw there were 2 sizes and the exorbitant prices. My son had asked for ice cream so I agreed. I got the large since it was only 90 cents more than the regular. There was a display of fake ice cream and... More

My wife ordered a banana split sunday, first they had no strawberries, then after I paid for the 5 ice creams and almost 48 dollar later. The girl at counter tells my wife, we have no whipped cream left, but we can make some if you want it , but it takes two minutes. This is the kind of thing... More

These gourmet-type ice cream stores are always expensive, but you usually get a healthy portion. Not here. For two cones, we paid $16.00, and you could barely see the ice cream inside the cone!!! Plus, the service was super slow, and there were a half dozen workers behind the counter. The ice cream itself was okay, but it was Ben... More

The title says it all. The ice cream is top quality. Although it was crowded, the line moved quickly. The only complaint I have is that it was a little pricey for Ben and Jerry's but everything in the Harbor had that problem.

We had Ben and Jerry's a couple times during our stay in National Harbor. The place is busy, and their staff is right on top of things. Even on 'free cone day' we had virtually no wait.

Friendly, clean and full choice offered. Traffic heavier at noon and dinner times. Cute for picture taking outside.
