Stopped on the way back from shopping. I'm always happy to find a place that makes it's own ice cream. They had interesting flavors besides the usuals. I had key lime ice cream which was excellent...halfway through I discovered there were graham cracker crumbs in it! Cool! I ordered a small dish, but the helping of ice cream was quite... More

The ice cream is good and we do as a family enjoy going up their occasionally as an evening treat. But there are two things management needs to address: Cleanliness and Service. The outdoor area is frankly gross. The patio area and benches need a good power wash and the staff need to empty the trashcans much more regularly. Wiping... More

Delicious homemade icecream. Just wish there was indoor seating for a hot day. Reasonable prices. Loved the coconut cream pie flavor! Next time want to try the buckeye one.

Found this with the aid of a travel guide. When we got here it was busy and the customers were all smiles. We had thought it was a Mom & Pop type shop but now realize it's a chain. No differance to us..It was great ice cream and wonderful service.

We ended up having to eat in the car bc I wasn't able to hold/feed a 1 year old and eat my own ice cream. The prices are a little high but the ice cream was good. There was only one girl working the window & she wasn't the friendliest.

I love finding homemade ice cream locations while on vacation, and Handels certainly didn't disappoint. They had so many flavor options and each of us was pleased with our choices. Highly recommend!

This was out of our way, but read some reviews and decided to try it. They only offer one size which is huge. I got the salted caramel and it was SO good. My husband got the key lime which was good but too sweet for my taste. We ran into some locals who come frequently. I would highly recommend... More

Handel's has good ice cream, but it is one of the more expensive places to buy ice cream in the Williamsburg area. Staff is friendly, I don't recommend trying their hurricanes - which is equivilent to Dairy Queens Blizzard - the ice cream was runny and cookie wasn't any where near being crushed - they will not turn this upside...
