Nathan’s has awesome soft serve ice cream. The cost is very reasonable and you get moved through the line very quickly.

My husband and I love Nathan's and often walk there for a tasty treat. It's about a mile walk from our house, but you can't beat a delicious cone as reward. He prefers the dipped cones - they're his favorite. I always enjoy the flavors...More

It's just ok. The line is always super long and I'm not sure why when there are other, better options. I prefer Klines just a couple miles up the road. Their ice cream is a little thicker

I love this place. The servers are friendly and helpful. The Ice cream is tasty and plentiful. I got a simple chocolate syrup and peanuts on vanilla Ice cream (small) and it was very filling. Good value for the money!!

Very popular spot in Manassas, long lines most nights but the ice cream is worth the wait. So don't be afraid of the line, it moves along at a good pace. And they have ice cream for your dog!

This casual outdoor dining at tables with umbrellas. You often have to wait in line but it is worth the wait. Sometimes there are seasonal favorites such as pumpkin flavored ice cream or baked apples with ice cream
