Can't go wrong with an Abbott's at the lake! Establishment knows how to cater to the public! Well worth the wait.

It is a tradition that I go with my wife, and soon with my son to get a hot fudge sundae at this landmark location near the Charlotte pier. The ice cream here is the best I have ever had, not counting gelato, and being able to stroll along the beautiful nearby beach & pier or peaceful Beach Ave while... More

Abbott's is a Rochester institution, just like the white hot. If you are going to have ice cream-have a custard. My favorite is just plain vanilla. It has the right amount of sweetness, vanilla taste and the creamiest texture that you can imagine. Of course, they also offer other traditional ice cream treats such as sundaes, sandwiches, and all kinds... More

We don't have custard on the west coast and we need it! Topping galore. A fun and tasty treat even in the rain!

I was at a nearby attraction and a local recommended that we give Abbott's a try as it was a really hot day. Thank goodness I heeded his advice.....it was soooooooooo good, I don't think I've had anything better! If I live near to an Abbott's, I possibly will have it everyday. I didn't think it was too expensive like... More

We are always pleased with Abbott's. Some people in our family have special dietary needs and with the fat free no sugar added custard, we can enjoy dessert as a family.

Good custard, but really expensive! Would like to see more flavor choices - very limited! Got a sample of Wegman's custard last week and it's pretty darn good, too!

We always make it a point to get a frozen custard when we return to our hometown, Rochester, for a visit. There is just nothing here in Florida that comes close to the wonderful creamy taste.

It's good stuff, and if you're from Rochester - (I'm not) it's heresy to speak ill of Abbott's. They'll get you! But I have a few reservations. First, it's really expensive, as Coach787 said - You can easily drop $20 - $25 for a family of 4. It's good, but there's a lot of good soft serve out there. Second,... More
