So good!

I like to get the vanilla yogurt with hot fudge, whipped cream and nuts. So good for a little bit less calories! The people behind the counter are always friendly and well trained.

I have been to 3 of this small chains locations and while the custard is good i.e. richer than most it was not frozen in every location over an extended amount of time thus it was not just one location with a broken or poor freezer it was all locations. This is inexplicable as ice cream or frozen custard should... More

Stopped to pick-up some turtles for our son. It will be a surprise birthday treat for him. Abbott's is a great place with a great view and walking path along the canal. Buy a turtle and enjoy a nice walk on the canal walking trail!

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.

A Rochester original! You must have an Abbot's custard when in Rochester. A summer tradition. You will thank me! Yummmy.
