Not the ordinary ice cream place

Very creamy, delicious homemade custard. They serve vanilla, chocolate and a flavor of the day. They had a caramel brownie when we were there. They also make sundaes and other concoctions. There were food items on the menu too. Good place to stop for a quick snack.

Be careful, serves you stale and cold coffee with a smile. Though ice creams are good. I felt annoyed but no one really cared. Pretends to be busy even when there are very few customers around during summer months.

Yummy unique bakery items along with frozen custard & coffee. Something to satisfy everyone. Many options for toppings as well as flavors.

Great stop for a special dessert after dinner or just for a treat. Lots of different flavors, (although only 2 or 3 available as soft serve daily). Smooth and creamy just like real custard should be. Lots of other treats, coffee bar and a nice sit-down area. Also creative specials. A must stop!

I love Whitty's custard! My favorite is the buckeye blast whitser (their version of a blizzard)! It's vanilla custard smothered with chocolate and peanut butter, not to mention peanut butter cups. Awesome to get a whitser and stroll around uptown Athens.

We had heard about frozen custard and decided to make a little trip to Athens Ohio to try it. WOW - delicious. Definitely worth the trip. I got "turtle" but ended up eating most of the vanilla custard by its self. We sat outside and enjoyed watching the college kids walk by.

I got a special and it was good but not the best I have ever had. The toppings were only on top and not throughout the bowl which was disappointing. Good portion and a cool atmosphere.

Not my first visit & certainly not my last! Went here with my son & his friends on Mom's weekend. Oh so good! It doesn't matter how you order your frozen custard (they offer several options) it is outstanding!

I like ice cream on occasion but not enough to go out of my way for it. Frozen custard? A Whister? What is this stuff? Let me tell you what it is....it's addictive as hell! Whitser's are now officially my #3 favorite dessert, behind home made brownies and true NYC style cheesecake.
