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

When someone visits from out of town, there are a couple standby restaurants that we go to, certainly some shops that we try and bring business too, but nobody, and I mean nobody, gets to come here without visiting Bev's at least once. With at least a half-dozen fresh-that-day-only flavors, a wall full of standby choices, and a cute area... More

We're at the point in our road trip when you just need a decent ice cream. After some local digging we find out we should head to Carytown and look out for Bev's. We did, and it was good. Very good. I went for 'Dirty Chocolate' with M&Ms and Oreo's. It was unbelievable. I've been around a bit, I've been... More

One of my favorite ice cream shops so far. While in Richmond I was a little disappointed with the food in Cary st but was extremely happy to find this great place. I had the butter pecan and peach and cream both extremely creamy and flavorful.

Flavor wise they carry the usual and some. I had the Butter Pecan and it was good. However nothing special comes to mind to write from that one experience. This is a small ice cream parlor and popular with visitors. What I noticed about my Butter Pecan was the extra creamy taste. While I stood outside and enjoyed my ice... More

The entire decor of Bev's is 1970s! From the painted stripes on the wall to the lackluster tables and too-high stools, you'll expect Mary and Rhoda to walk in anytime. Additionally, we were there on a Saturday night and the staff seemed so harried-- it was steadily busy, but it didn't justify the frustration…

If you are looking for unique flavors in ice cream than this is probably the place for you. I have to give them hats off for the uniqueness of the shop, the different distinctive flavors they create, and of course being in Carytown. I tried the rum raisin which had some wonderful flavors to it and my partner had the... More

For some reason I had never heard of Bev's before this summer, but I was missing out! I have been twice and had delicious flavors both times (Mocha Almond and Espresso Oreo). The staff is very nice and the prices are reasonable. Bev's is a great alternative to the frozen yogurt craze.

My husband and I were walking around Carytown for the first time on Saturday afternoon. We really wanted ice cream, but all we found at first was a frozen yogurt chain. But then we started seeing people walked toward us with ice cream. We asked someone and found out about Bev's and were glad we waited! I am very particular... More

Not only was the service poor--no hello, no 'thank you' but our chocolate ice cream had ice chunks--not supposed to!! I used to make ice cream for a PT job I had years ago in undergrad...so we won't be back.
