We are currently visiting Hershey Park and our hotel is close this ice cream place. Very tasty ice cream, but not a lot of toppings. We all ordered kiddie size and we couldn't finish it due to big portion. The place was packed but the servers were quick. Overall, I'm glad we went heree tonight.

There are other ice cream places popping up in Harrisburg but this remains the best. Just visited the "barn" last week and had Teaberry with Peaches ' N Cream. The only thing that keeps the rating from... More

3B ice cream is not made on the premises but is ice cream available in other stores. It's good, but the prices are high. I don't know how a family with two or three kids could get away with less than $10 or $12 for a couple of cones. As I recall, there are not a lot of "small" options... More

We love their ice cream and the portions are pretty generous. Price is a bit high. They have indoor and outdoor seating which is great. However, the service was very slow on Memorial Day. There were 3 staff members and there was about 10 parties of at least 2 people each waiting to order but one of them decided that... More

3 B Ice Cream is not open during the winter, but during the rest of the year it is open. They have a nice variety of flavors of ice cream plus all kinds of shakes, sundaes, splits etc. They also have menu including burgers, sandwiches, fries, drinks.

I had heard 3B's is a place to visit here in Harrisburg. An once having tried them yes it is. When you see it looks like a simple place few people outside during the day but on a nice summer night post dinner its packed nightly. They offer a number of hand packed flavors. With the biggest Banana split I've... More

always a friendly staff. all flavors are tasty and the servings are large. On hot nights you can expect longer lines but this gives you a chance to shop the different flavors.

We enjoyed the ice cream that we got here. It is not too far from the hotels off of 283. We will come back here if we are back in the Hershey area.
