I have lived in Harrisonburg for about 6 months now but have successfully avoided going to Klines because I didn't want to fall in love with it! However the sign out front saying the Flavor of the Day was Caramel and Pralines, finally reeled me...More

Kline's Dairy Bar is a great old school ice cream spot. They have vanilla ice cream, chocolate ice a cream, and a flavor of the week as well as milkshakes, sundaes, and a few other flavors that they can make for you. My favorite is...More

Kline's is a must for anyone passing through Harrisonburg- and for locals, too! They have special flavors that change weekly (you can get a physical "flavor card" or check out the website.) If you want a flavor besides the special/chocolate/vanilla, check out their huge milkshake...More

All the flavors are great. The lemon-gingersnap and pumpkin are by far the best. Great, cheap treat.

This is a retro ice cream shop with a limited selection of delicious soft-serve ice cream. Stand in line, eat outside, enjoy

This place is a local landmark. They make custard style ice cream using vintage equipment. Shakes, splits, sundaes, always serving vanilla and chocolate and a different flavor of the week that changes every Wednesday. Visit once and you'll be hooked!

When we saw the sign we knew we'd end up getting ice cream at Klines. It is an old style dairy bar. Park your car. Walk up to the window and order your cone from the young ice cream jockeys. Enjoy your ice cream at...More

We were excited to try Kline's after reading the reviews but it wasn't as good as we expected. The flavor selection was very limited. The lady at the window wasn't rude but wasn't super friendly either. Overall it was disappointing.

Kline's ice cream never fails to satisfy. Only improvement would be to have more seating-for-eating options.

My wife and I rate all ice cream parlors against Kline's. Absolutely our favorite ice cream. She loves the chocolate, I almost always get their special which changes weekly.

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.
