Anyway, I have not once ever been disappointed here. I have a tendency to order the same thing being a creature of habit. But I... More

I travel a lot. My gf loves ice cream. If we are out or coming back from dinner I take her here. Great flavors and portions. Very rich flavorful ice cream. The ice cream place up my gf's way is better. But, Wentworth's is best

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
