Great place for desert

My parents grew up on this place in Ohio and this one is every bit as good! Always a long line, but well worth the wait! Heck, if there wasn't a line, I wouldn't go there! Wide variety and friendly staff! A must go for desert!

They say all the icecream is homemade. I bought a chocolate covered banana. They are hard to find. The rest of my family got the icecream. They said it was good. The portions are a little on the small size for what you pay. It is a little pricey.

The ice cream was fantastic. So many choices it was hard to decide. You had a choice of several types of cones.

We were in the mood for ice cream and decided to give this place a try it was very good, the turtle sundae was sweet, but not overly so, my husband had the brownie sundae, which was much sweeter and bigger, but he loved it.

For the price, the portions were small and it was nothing exceptionable. You can get better ice cream at a lot of different places foe the same or less monry

Stopped by Handel’s during our beack week in Sandbridge. As always, ice cream was amazing. Many, many choices and all are delicious. Lines tend to be long post-dinner, but worth the wait. Highly recommend.

Great ice cream stand. The "parlor" is outside, and when you're there in the summer you'll want to eat your ice cream fast or opt against a cone because their servings are large and tend to melt quicker than you can eat it. Many varieties of chocolate await you, and as many flavors as can suit the most discriminating palate.... More

Always a line... Always worth the short wait, plus there's many homemade flavors to choose from so you need a few minutes on line to decide. Simply yummy!!!
