Great Ice Cream

This place is out of the way if you are visiting Williamsburg but it is worth the drive out. From one ice cream lover to another- the ice cream here is oh so good

We splurged on ice cream sundae's and they were great. Ice cream was rich and flavorful, hot fudge was very tasty and they didn't skimp. Plenty of flavors to choose from. Not much else to say, except it is worth the visit.

Our first time at a Handel's and it was a pleasant experience. The fresh peach sundaes were excellent. The prices were reasonable for the quantity and quality of our servings. The flavor selections were many, and the only complaint was using syrup with vanilla to make chocolate. The server was helpful and friendly. The building is clean and inviting, but... More

Some of the yummiest ice cream I have found is right here. The service is quick and the prices are not to bad. Some day it would be nice to try the ice cream pizza...

We stayed nearby and visited this location twice. That's how good the ice cream is...however the reason for the average rating is there is a LOT of spiders and webs right above you when you pay and especially right above your ice cream! They clearly have not cleaned the outside counter from the dead spiders and webs. One customer even... More

We visited this place twice during our week in Williamsburg. Our kids loved it. The ice cream is homemade and they have a lot of flavors to choose from. The prices are average and serving sizes are what you would get elsewhere. It is worth a visit!

GENEROUS servings of top quality ice cream, including unique flavors like my favorite: coconut cream pie! A bit too much hot fudge on the sundaes, though...

This place has been in business for 70 years for a reason!! The ice cream is tasty and avoids being too sweet. One of favorite treats on our trips to Williamsburg.

Came for the homemade ice cream... So tasty! My husband got Oreo-Dough and he loved it! I had banana and it actually had chunks of bananas in it (not the artificial yellow stuff). They let us split a dish between our boys instead of buying two since they don't actually have "kid" sizes. Which they suggested without issue. I had... More
