After living in York for several years now we were looking for something different to do with our granddaughter during her recent visit. We decided to visit Handel's and try their ice cream. She loved it and so did we. We will definitely visit again. We ordered milkshakes and sundaes to eat on the spot and butter pecans to go... More

Every time we stop here we always leave happy. Tonight my wife had Mocha Cookie blast and loved it. I had a Boston Cooler I will definitely get it again. Handel's is hands down the best ice cream place in York.

We stopped off from driving to get a quick cone. My dad got a chocolate cone which was fine. My mint chocolate chip was disappointing as it had flecks not chips and there were only about 10 sprinkles on the whole cone. The coconut cream pie icecream was amazing. Definitely taste the icecream before getting a full cone.

Hello youvegotmidge. Thank you for stopping at Handel's Ice Cream in York. We're glad you enjoyed your ice cream for the most part. It sounds like you may have been disappointed because you were not familiar with our Mint Chocolate Chip. Handel's has been making it that way for 71 years now and it's actually one of our most popular... More

We finally decided to stop by and try their ice cream after living in York for several years. It was tasty but not memorable. What was memorable was the attitude teenager service. Oh, and when they wouldn't sell a brownie or cookie to a child who doesn't eat ice cream. I know what you are thinking, this is an ice... More

Hello PoolLovinFoodies. Thank you for stopping at Handel's in York. I am very sorry for the experience you had. We do not have cookies, but we will gladly sell a customer a plain brownie if they want. Unfortunately you had one of our newer Scoopers who was not familiar with our policy or how to ring it up on the... More

This is one of our "must" stops when we are in York for the street rod show. There are so many delicious flavors to chose from- coconut cream being my favorite. The servings are huge! Owners are lovely people and make it a point to come and talk with us and are super friendly. You won't be disappointed.

I came here for ice cream with some friends and I was not disappointed. They have lots of flavors and prices are pretty reasonable. Some of the flavors I never have seen before and the ones I tried were really good! Definitely recommend stopping here for some good ice cream.

I love going here year round. There ice cream is rich & creamy. Lots of flavored to choose from. My favorite is the butter pecan. They don't skimp on the pecans or the portion size. Great value.

Excellent quality ice cream; rich, creamy and flavorful. Good variety of flavors and fast service. We never bother with shakes or sundaes, because the ice cream is too good "as-is".

I love this place & I love that it's open all year round. Their ice cream is always good & worth waiting in line for. They even have doggie ice cream cups which my pups seem to love too!

We stopped by for ice cream on Friday evening. They had a good selection to choose from. However, the employee was less then welcoming. When we asked for two flavors on the same cone (one scoop of chocolate and one scoop of peanut butter), the employee said we had to buy a four scoop cone. Really? Why? Because it is... More
