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!!!

Love that I can bring my dogs here to enjoy some great ice cream. My dogs LOVE coming here. Which if you are a pet owner this is one place in Virginia that dogs are welcome. Huge variety in ice cream, shakes and much more.

After hearing so many rave reviews about Handel's, my husband and I finally decided to give it a try. Upon arriving, the very first thing we noticed was that there were no tables to sit at. There were plenty of metal benches but all of them were in the hot sun, none of them were in the shade. We noticed... More

We love the delicious ice cream, but have been disappointed more than once when they haven't been opened as advertised. Last couple of times we visited, they were opened, but not prepared to serve the "hurricane's" we were craving! Asked us to come back in 20 minutes! So disappointed! Visited today and as I was waiting for my order, I... More

Love Handel's though I don't get over that way enough to have it more often. Service is good and I like the bench's around. Wish they had a little more shade otherwise, I like them a lot.

SO many choices !!! I have tried a number of their different flavors and they are all fantastic. Having a punch card helps get a freebie. The quality os great and when you ask for a single it actually looks like a double because they give you so much icecream. So great on a got summer night.
