Tried frozen custard for the first time and it was delicious! The butterscotch was smooth and rich, with a slightly smoky caramel overtone. Hubby loved his strawberry one, whose flavor was sharper than grocery strawberries but not as sharp as wild ones. An excellent treat and a fantastic location right on the Canal, with benches and sloping lawns to enjoy.

This is a great ice cream shop in a quaint building right next to the Erie Canal. You can sit and enjoy your ice cream while watching boats travel by on the canal.

The custard and ice cream are superb - especially the signature chocolate almond. The setting along the Erie Canal cannot be replicated. Highly recommended for ambiance and ice cream.

The Chocolate Almond custard is excellent! It does not feel like summer until our family has made a stop for a cone.

The location is great especially for a treat after dinner. You can enjoy a quality Abbott's custard and relax along the canal. The Spring/Early Summer are great as the ducks are raising their young along the shore of the canal. Our daughter loves to go here, get an ice cream, and then feed the ducks.

Can't beat Abbott's for great frozen custard! Actually, I don't even know where you can find anyone who creates this type of ice cream treat. If you've never had an Abbott's chocolate almond custard you should make an effort to visit one of their locations in the Rochester area.

First time visiting the area and my friend recommended we visit, I like frozen custard, but I can say I love Abbotts Frozen Custard. Creamy smooth vanilla flavor and tried the Turtle pop, fresh homemade custard. Like my friend I would recommend and although it was cold and snow on the ground the Bushnell Basin still a lovely setting. I'm... More

If you think gelato is good, wait until you try Abbott's Frozen Custard...it is like no other ice cream, yogurt, gelato or custard you have ever had!!! They have different flavors daily or at least weekly and all of them are delicious (peanut butter and blackberry are my favorite). Whether you wait 30min+ in the hot summer head by the... More
