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.

Klines is a favorite of the locals as well as for out of towners. Flavors are always chocolate and vanilla with a weekly special that changes. Cones or cups are available and be prepared to wait at times because the place is so popular. Do...More

The best soft served icecream I've ever tasted! We went to Kline's based on the reviews here and I'm glad we did. The waffles was yummy! Must have before leaving Harrisonburg!

If you are lusting for a good ie cream cone, Kline's is the place. They also serve ice cream in a variety of other forms, and have plenty of outside seating. Apparently a local favorite, there is usually a long line. It's worth it.

We went with such high hopes based on reviews that were very disappointed. Banana split is the only good thing there, we had a large portion, not sure of the small and medium... The sundaes kids took were not served right and small portions. Spent...More

This place was so simple and so good. There are only 3 flavors, chocolate, vanilla, and a rotating flavor of the week. I unfortunately ate a huge lunch elsewhere before going here, so I only got the second smallest size... and it was huge... and...More

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.
