I asked for a single dip cone and let out a "WHOA!" when they handed the monster out the window. Instead of a standard four ounce single serving, it was about 10 ounces. The night I was there they had chocolate, vanilla, and brownie batter...More

The ice cream is a treat, but the banana split is a holiday splurge worth waiting for. We go all the time, and the staff is always friendly and prompt.

It was ok. Hand dipped with very limited selections of flavors and menu. I can't lie, we were a bit disappointed.More

Our ice cream is homemade in the store each morning. This is the reason that we only have three flavors --- Chocolate, Vanilla, and weekly special. We're sorry that we didn't have the variety that you were looking for like other ice cream shops. Hopefully,...More

During my visit the ice cream was good, I went in the summer so I wouldn't eat the ice cream when it's windy because it melts right away that was the only thing I had.

If you want an extraordinary wonderful taste, treat yourself to Kline's Ice Cream! Fresh is the best, and Kline's is made fresh daily - vanilla, chocolate and a flavor of the week.

Stopped by with my children and it was very good. Each time we stop it is good. We had coupons and there was no problems with using them.

Hand scooped custard style ice cream. Each location makes their own fresh ice cream each morning for the day's sales. Flavors are vanilla, chocolate and weekly special. The weekly special is subject to change on Wednesdays. Our menu includes a variety of milkshakes, sundaes and banana splits. Proudly serving Greenberry's coffee. John Kline began Kline's Frozen Custard with the help of his father, Grover Kline, in downtown Harrisonburg, Virginia. The ice cream stand was located in the first floor of the family's house and customers were served through a walk up window. While working at the ice cream shop, John began courting a young woman across the street at the dry cleaners. Bess went on to marry John. She became the well known and loved face of Kline's. She worked the front window for decades. In 1974, John Kline died and Bess sold the business. A gentleman named Sam Fletcher owned the store until 1979. Mike Arehart became the owner of Kline's in 1979. Sam Fletcher stayed on for an additional year to teach him the ropes. Bess Kline also stayed on and became a wonderful friend and teacher to Mike. Over the years, Mike has added some new flavors and products.He has stayed very loyal to the Kline's philosophy of quality. Now Mike's sons work in the business as well. Mike owns the Harrisonburg stores.
