After getting a little disoriented from where our car was parked while hiking, we happily stumbling upon this cute ice cream shop. I had a soft cone with pistachio and my friend had a chocolate scoop in a cup. It hit the spot after a long hike:)

Very good ice cream. Our date night place to go after dinner. Good flavors and toppings. The kids like to hang out on the swing in back and eat their ice cream. Not open on Sunday

A great treat! The servings are enormous and delicious but not inexpensive. Just don't try to come on Sundays. They are closed.

I have been going to Wentworth's ever since I learned to appreciate the heavenliness that is ice cream. They are consistent- always delicious and creamy. They always have a variety of flavors and will let you try them all until you find one that you like. It is a busy place in the summertime, but they are efficiently staffed, so... More

Tried it for first time based on reviews on this site...was definitely worth it! Got there with only 5 minutes to spare till closing time, service was friendly & quick. Recommend the "teeny" scoop & I appreciate the sign that tells you how many ounces each size scoop is. Can't wait to go back & try other flavors.

The ice cream here is delicious! They have a variety of flavors and toppings. It's right off Whitney Ave. and close to QU and Sleeping Giant. They have tables and swings outside too!

Wentworth's is a reliable local ice cream shop that features a wide variety of flavors. All of the product is made on site, so it is very fresh. Judging by the line out the door in the evenings, you know that the shop is very popular. The shop has indoor and outdoor seating and works well for take away. Just... More

The ice cream is good. Personally too much for me. The size of the cones are very large, so although it is pricey you do get your money's worth. I bought a kid cone and it was very filling. The ice cream was tasty, just a little heavy for me. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Actually, allowing me... More
