I had a delicious sundae. The service was quick, ice cream creamy and the wet walnuts fantastic. Strawberry ice cream gets a thumbs up.

Very good ice cream. Quick service. Nice place to sit outside and eat your ice cream. We like Thursday's cause banana splits are half price if you bring your own banana. My grandkids love this place.

I was so pleased by the staffs attitude at Brewsters. At 10:30pm on a Friday the staff was friendly and chipper. The young lady helped me make a ice cream decision and when I was leaving another young girl sweeping outside told me to have a great night. Besides the excellent service, they offer samples and the ice cream is... More

Our family visited Brewsters's Ice Cream twice in our stay in Harrisonburg. They provide a wide variety of ice cream flavors, toppings and cone choices, as well as serving sizes. Yum!!!!

If you are a fan of Italian Ice and want some head on down. The kids will love anything they have and so will the adults.

Best ice cream around and the pecans are over the top fantastic! Worth a special stop if you are anywhere near here! We were here 2 years ago on trip south and made a special stop to get it again.

Great way to end a day of hiking at Shenandoah National Park. Right by most of the hotels in Harrisonburg, Brewster's offered at least 10 different flavors (probably more) and sundaes, shakes, splits, etc. The Banana Cream Pie ice cream was delicious, and my husband's Cappuccino ice cream was incredible too. You can tell its homemade!

When in the area during warm weather, we always make it a point to stop here and share our favorite Banana Split for two. They do such a great job and making this with three flavors of real ice cream with all the fixings.

Bruster's is always a treat! Quality of the ice cream is excellent, with many excellent choices to choose from. Definitely a trend in providing smaller portions for the same price. Nevertheless, worth it for a special treat.
