Great on a hot day

We often bike to Charlotte Beach on Lake Ontario. There is an Abbotts there. After riding in the sun, there is nothing like some chocolate almond frozen custard. There can be a line but it goes fast. Abbotts is a Rochester tradition and well worth it.

We go here all the time on a hot summer night. When friends come from out of town we take them here. Their custard is outstanding. The flavors change from day to day. I especially like the pistachio pineapple and chocolate almond chip in a waffle cone. We always take a stroll along Ontario Beach and also onto the nearby... More

While visiting our son in Rochester, he suggested we try Abbot's Frozen Custard. We were not disappointed! Friendly service and generous portions, the flavors were true to their descriptions. We highly recommend the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle. The Cake Batter and Maple Walnut were also excellent selections. We will definitely return for seconds!

This was our go-to place for ice cream - always a line - but fast service and a busy place - lots of places to sit down and you can always walk across the street to the beach area. Nice selection but be careful - the special ran out before we could order. -very nicely prices and big portions

In the Texas it is VERY HARD to find frozen custard. I have heard we have some places near Houston but I haven't found any in Dallas. When I go "up North" I MUST get frozen custard. It's so rich and creamy. I got vanilla and chocolate scoops with sprinkles. It was just as I had hoped... delicious! Yummy! If... More

A sundae from here is the best. However, the past 2 times we have gone...where is the ice cream ...??? Only 1 scoop and drenched with whipped cream. Time to do some retraining. We LIKE ice cream !!

Abbott's is a must when in Rochester. They offer many flavors of ice cream and custard with an assortment of toppings. Waffle cones are amazing and they offer items to go as well. Sometimes has a wait in the summer and rather expensive for ice cream but well worth it!

Grew up on frozen custard, can't find it outside Rochester. Chocolate almond from Abbott's is better than any frozen option anywhere.

Heard it was a NY staple and rightfully so. Good ice cream. Made right there. Very creamy. Nice seating. Near University of Rochester.
