Average ice cream, my family definitely has had better. It was very crowded the night we went and seems to be very popular. Not sure why! My family are huge ice cream fans, but we all agreed this did not stand out in taste or quality.

We love every flavor we've tried. We never have any complaints. The staff is very friendly too. They even have free tiny cones for our youngest child.

This is hands down the best ice cream in the area! A definite hidden gem! My husband and I found this ice cream shop a few years ago. Now each visit to Williamsburg we have to go to Handels for desert after dinner. The fresh ice cream is the best!

Some of the best ice cream you will ever eat!! Lots and lots of flavored. They give you a cone and layer your favors. Not just putting one flavor on top of the other like all other places. I love the attention to detail and we could not have asked for me. The only disappointment is that we live in... More

This location was a little ways out from everything else in the area. It was very busy; we did have to wait in line for 15-20 minutes. The ice cream was okay just probably not worth the drive as there are other closer locations.

The ice cream here is so good! It gets very crowded during the summer months, so prepare to wait in line. They have sugar cones, waffle cones, and cake cones, all different flavors of ice cream and sherbet, and shakes and sundaes. So good! Not cheap, not overly expensive. The service seems a little slow, but often time customers have... More

If you are in the Williamsburg, VA area, and want some really yummy ice cream, Handel's is the place to go! A wide variety of flavors and types of ice cream, and all are wonderful! The only drawback is that there is no place to eat your treat in the shade, unless you happen to come in the evening. There... More

The ice cream here is absolutely to die for! Best homemade ice cream we've ever eaten! A wide variety too! Great way to end the evening after a meal somewhere in town! Very nice!

An outdoor ice cream stand that is open year round. Good ice cream. Kind of pricey. I asked for a kid size and they don't have one. Tasted very good.
