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!

Ice cream is delicious and service was friendly!! There's really nothing much else to say other than this! It was the best part of our whole trip.

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...

Went here on the recommendation of staff at a local restaurant. Got a four-scoop sampler to share between two and enjoyed it. The hand-dipped ice cream was very creamy and for the most part tasted quite good. I would return here on my next visit to Williamsburg.

Best ice cream I have ever had, including gelatos. Chocolate pecan is the favorite, smooth and creamy, whole slightly salted pecans folded in. This is nearly a frozen custard, made on site daily. Dozens of flavors including a great choc chip mint and a raspberry fudge truffle. Frozen yoghurts and sorbets also good. Worth the drive out Richmond Road!

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!!!!!!
