Best Ice Cream in Virgina!

We traveled from Ohio to Williamsburg. We couldn't wait to show parents the great ice cream we found on our last visit. They agreed it was a great finish to a wonderful day! You must find this place. We didn't find it until our second visit. Now we stop there several times during our week's... read more

Checked the website first, it said open today 10 to 10. They sent an email saying they had peppermint stick back and it called to me for two days.... Got there at 8:10 and no one in site. Very disappointing!

Went for a cone after dinner...there were so many flavors to choose from. My wife chose chocolate almond and I have black cherry large cones. They were huge and some of the best ice cream I have eaten. You other at a walk-up window and they have no indoor seating. The total with tax was over $9.00 but it was... More

This is our second trip to Williamsburg and our third trip to Handel's. We love all the unique ice cream flavors and the quality is terrific. Highly recommend! As a heads up, it's all outside with a few benches to sit on.

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.
