Love this place. Ice cream is fresh and creamy. They always have new flavors. I love that you can sit indoors or outdoors. Outdoors has a pavilion and little toys for kids to play on. It's awesome for families. Great location near sleeping giant. My dad is a diabetic and this is one of the only places that has sugar... More

Wentworths makes a very rich creamy homemade ice cream with plenty of flavors to chose from. It's truly a real treat.They are also a short walk/ ride from the Farmington Canal or Sleeping Giant State Park - so take an ice cream break on a hot day. Just remember they are not open on Sundays. Minimal inside seating but there... More

We love to go to Wentworth's for ice cream. There are so many different flavors to choose from. My sister loves the toasted coconut. I love the black raspberry and French vanilla. The ice cream here is very creamy. The service is always very good. We will definitely be going back to Wentworth's soon!

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.
