“Great Ice Cream”
Review of Kline's Dairy Bar

Kline's Dairy Bar
Ranked #1 of 8 Dessert in Harrisonburg
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $3 - $6
Description: What makes Kline's ice cream so smooth and creamy with an unbelievably delicious taste? It's all in the production method and ingredients. We take the quality of our ice cream very seriously. High quality ingredients and an old fashion ice cream making technique has made Kline's an institution since 1943. Unlike the more popular and profitable soft serve and batch methods of producing ice cream, Kline's employs an almost obsolete process of continuous freeze production. Other methods can yield several times more ice cream because of the air being pumped in during the whipping process. The continuous freeze method used by Kline's, however, does not add extra air to the product. It is a very slow and labor intensive process. Each location makes their own fresh ice cream each morning for the day's sales.

“Great Ice Cream”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Follow dinner at the Local Chop And Grill we (four of us) stopped at Kline's for ice cream. They had all manner of flavors. Shakes, sundaes, cones, etc. It really hit the spot and topped off the evening. I am not sure if they had indoor seating. We stood around outside eating our ice-cream but it could be pretty cold in the winter if you wanted to eat it .

In any case, I would recommend it and also eat ice-cream again there if in the area.

enjoy

“We're talkin' homemade!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

This place has really good ice cream that has the consistency of homemade and tastes like it's made with REAL ingredients, not iced milk whipped with air. The servings are very generous, and they not only serve shakes, but malted ones as well...hard to find these days...YUM !! Don't miss it if you're in Harrisonburg!

“Very good ice cream”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

The set up here is similar to Karl's in Fredericksburg, Virginia but unlike Karl's, this is ice cream not frozen custard. Oder conservatively! The small was huge!

“Best Milk Shake”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

I have never been disappointed with a chocolate milk shake from Kline's. They are simply outstanding; deliciously thick and a wonderful treat all the way to the last drop!

“Such a unique stop!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

My husband and I were on our way to Williamsburg and stopped in this town to stay at the half way point. It was later, around 9pm and we were hungry. The subway across from our hotel was closed so we were forced to find someplace else. We stumbled upon this cute little local place and I immediately fell in love. (I am a sucker for neat, local joints!) We had the BBQ and it was amazing. I would definitely go back if we are ever in the area again.
