Even though it is a chain, we do love this ice cream. I just wish my money was going straight to the hard working employees that take and fulfill the orders rather than the owners. Because it was really pathetic to watch them roll up to a long line of people with only 2 personnel on the clock, scoop themselves... More

Found this place on trip advisor and enjoyed the ice cream. The orange sherbet is great, the cotton candy really doesn't taste like cotton candy but was okay. Plan on hitting this place again before we leave town.

After dinner destination for good ice cream. We were late so the selection was a bit limited. They take the flavors off of the board when they run out. On the other hand, if you arrive late then I think the scoops are a bit bigger and they are already good-sized. You really do not need a second scoop unless... More

While the ice cream is fantastic the service is sub standard. When we arrived we were the only ones at the counter. Our group had ordered and my daughter needed to use the restroom. So after taking her across the street to a gas station (no restrooms on site) my wife let us know that the chocolate ice cream our... More

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.
