I got a quart from among the many flavors they have available. I'm rather certain it's the least costly ($6.50) quart I've purchased in the PGH area & I do know it's about $2 less than what they charge at a very well known very large (though not around here) international chain. And the ice cream was decent enough; I'm... More

While in the area for four days, hubby and I stopped here two evenings for a treat. We got the same flavor each time, he got black cherry and I got mint chocolate chip. We would highly recommend this shop as the ice cream is delish and the prices are very, very reasonable, about $2 for two generous scoops.

I like the ice cream at Handel's but it takes forever to get. Even if there is only 2 people ahead of me, it seems to take forever. I usually pass up my cravings when I'm in that plaza because I don't have the time to stand in line for 20 minutes every time. It's good but not that good.... More

We picked the sampler. Four generous scoops for 4.55. Seeing our toddler they offered a free kids cone with sprinkles. Every flavor we got was great. Outdoor bench seating is the only downer. We have been on hot days with no shade and it is even more uncomfortable. Sure wish they would throw out some umbrellas and tables and then... More

It's a wait at the window and eat it on the bench beside ice cream place, but the ice cream is so good. We haven't had a flavor we didn't like. It's replaced our old ice cream place not too far away. Prices are comparable, but the ice cream is a notch above.

So glad it is Fall and time for pumpkin and apple ice cream flavors. With so many wonderful choices (maybe 20-25), reasonable prices, and friendly service, it is always worth it to stop at Handel's. In the summer, I take a cooler and load up on pints or quarts.

We stopped by for ice cream after dinner at nearby Bonefish Grill. We got there at 9:10 PM. There were only 2 groups of 2 ahead of us but it took 20 minutes to get served, mainly because only one guy was taking care of customers (and quite slowly at that). The other employee was nonchalantly preparing for closing, even... More

Let me start by saying, I love ice cream. Favorite treat, bar none! That being said, I'm trying to watch what I eat. Bad juju right there. Handles has absolutely delicious ice cream, but even the "small" size cones are two scoops! All I have to do is ask, and they gladly give me one small scoop in a sugar... More

This was not the best ice cream that I've eaten. My CHOCOLATE MARSHMALLOW flavor ice cream was just chocolate with mini Marshmallows in it and not delicious Marshmallow crème. My wife enjoyed her butterscotch ice cream.

Hubby and I never get tired of going to Handel's. Their ice cream is so good and may be the best I've ever had. They have a lot of homemade flavors to choose from and introduce new limited time flavors frequently such as key lime pie. Their hurricanes and milkshakes are also very good. Love this place.
