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.

We have only stopped a couple of times, but my husband always gets the Buckeye Ice Cream which had chocolate and peanut butter - a specialty of this Youngstown Ohio creamery. The regular cone is pricey but you get three scoops of ice cream piled on. I don't remember what I've had but it was good as well.

After dinner we felt like having ice cream so we took a ride to Handel's which is open year round and they make their own ice cream daily. They offer plenty of varieties including frozen yogurt flavored. My wife ordered a blondie sundae with her choice of ice cream. It was smothered with loads of hot fudge and caramel and... More

Calling all ice cream lovers, this place is fantastic! Happened upon it when visiting the area several years ago. We are always sure to stop by every time we go through Williamsburg. The ice cream is made fresh, and the selection is amazing. Personally I enjoy the brownie sundae but have visited with others who enjoyed the banana split and... More
