Everything we tried was delicious. The hot fudge sauce was really good and tasted homemade as well. I would suggest adding some to a dish of coconut cream pie ice cream. I may go back again for some more before this vacation is over.

Every time we go the staff is friendly. The ice cream is really good and they have many flavors to choose from. The place is clean and the prices are average.Just wish there was more seating outside. My favorite mint chocolate chip!!!!!!

Okay…this place is awesome. I like Hagen Dazs and few other higher end brands and this beats them all. All ice cream is made right there on site. Very creamy…I had the Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie… AWESOME.

My wife and I went to Handel's thinking it would be a good experience. We were disappointed. Ice cream is only average. Portions are not ample. Bruster's is much better.

We visited this place six times and each time it was a real treat. It's worth it to drive a few miles because we were never disappointed. This place is open year round.

Came across Handel's ice cream coming back from a disappointing trip to Williamsburg Pottery. It was close to closing at 10pm on a weeknight and there must have been a dozen people either ordering or sitting on the blue benches enjoying their ice cream. The ice cream was great with large portions at reasonably prices. The staff was friendly and... More
