Real homemade ice cream...rich yet light creamy goodness.

Very good, no chain down home ice cream. What a find in Carytown. The Honey flavor sublime...fresh, fast, and fun. Don't leave town without stopping by for a scoop or two, some of the best ice cream around.

everyone thoroughly enjoyed the ice cream flavor .... as 2 of my kids said, "this is so much better than Sweet Frog!" which they simply adore. I had a smoothie which was just good and my wife had a chocolate shake which she liked too. Go for the Ice cream but anything else is still good.

Most likely the best ice cream in Richmond. Flavors taste fresh and true to their origins. Sundaes are made with real whipped cream. Fast service. Friendly. Busy. Nice that there's indoor seating and a few chairs outside for people watching on Cary Street.

My daughter took me to this local ice cream shop in Carytown and got to taste a different flavor than I would find at a chain ice cream shop. While they did have vanilla, coffee, chocolate chip flavors there were spacial flavors of the day. Since we were there on a Friday, the flavors were Basil, Cinnamon , and Agave... More

Excellent homemade icecream! Many creative flavors, and everyone in our group loved their icecream. I would highly recommend the butter pecan, mocha almond, and espresso and oreo icecream flavors!

We just wanted some ice cream. I saw the store riding down Cary. I dropped my party off and tried to find somewhere to park. Finding nowhere I parked in "The Portrait House Only spot", being a little scared of the consequences. We bought our ice cream and ate as we drove on down the road. The ice cream is... More

I am lactose intolerant and tend to avoid ice-cream but this place was too good to pass up. Very delicious and good assortment of flavors, I had the coffee/cookie combo (I don't remember the name) and it was great. Service is nothing special but then again, it's an ice cream parlor and not upscale dining.

I will start with best part of the review. The ice cream is out standing. Good variety of flavors and free cups of water. I always want water when I eat ice cream. Bad: The staff could be more organized. Went there with 3 friends, one shake and three cones. One girl made the cones and rang up the order... More

Hands down Bev's has great homemade ice cream. I went for a seasonal choice - apple and carmel and rum raisn. Wow! Rich, creamy and full of flavor. The seving sizes was larger than we are accustomed to for speciality ice cream. We found the servive was exceptionally courteous and good. The seating was not very comfortable but then how... More
