Yummy

Excellent service. Something for everyone. Fast, friendly and delicious. We had been out for dinner, souvenir shopping, mini golf and Handel's was the perfect ending to a great evening in Bonita Springs.

Very good and very creamy. Some of the best that I've ever had! Good selection of flavors. Chocolate pecan and sea salt caramel are highly recommended!

Really delicious, house-made ice cream from my home town of Youngstown, Ohio. Handel's ice cream is some of the best in the county, and it's a welcome addition to SW Florida. It's a nostalgic reminder of my childhood, growing up on the south side of town where Handel's first store is still located. Come have a taste, particularly the chocolate... More

Being from Youngstown, Ohio, where I had to wait in line six to ten people deep to get a Handel's ice cream cone, it was always my favorite. After moving to Florida over 40 years ago, I always craved having Handel's Chocolate Pecan ice cream and whenever traveling back to Youngstown I never missed stopping at Handel's. I was thrilled...

Had my first visit to Handel's tonight and it will not be the last. The ice cream was very good and so was the waffle cone. The service was okay. I was a little disappointed that they were out of the coconut cream pie flavor so I ended up with pistachio which was good too. Looking at their brochure it... More

Handel's has a variety of delicious homemade ice creams. I had a mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwich and it was one of the better ones I've ever had.

I live near Handel's and had driven by at least 100 times. I always intended to stop but hadn't done so until last night. I should have been stopping all along. The ice cream is heavenly.

Well, this place stakes a claim for the best ice cream in the world.... While I can't say I agree 100% it was pretty good. My chocoholic peanut butter hardly had any peanut butter in it. Give it a try and decide for yourself!

No wait, super fresh icecream with really great flavors! Love the salted caramel! My daughter had a smoothie. She said it was wonderful, too! We go every year. Will continue to visit!
