I can't wait to go back to Wentworth's to try more flavors! I wanted to go out for ice cream the other night and my boyfriend suggested we go to Wentworth's, since I had never had it. It was possibly the best ice cream I have ever had, and I have tried more than my fair share of ice cream!... More

Wentworth's has been around for more than 30 years, and has always served great ice cream, made on site. Service is variable, as the staff are college students and summer help. Most are great, but on busy summer weekends, service can be a bit slow. Overall a great experience and lots of choice.

This is the best ice cream to be had in this entire area. My only regret is that they are closed on Sunday.

Nothing remarkable, exceptional or out of this world. I cannot understand these reviews. Is it the same place? It is average at best. Nothing at all to write home about.
