Let’s me start off with the positive. The pistachio ice cream was great!! Chunks of the nut throughout and freshly made. The service... needs work. It was unclear which window to go to since all of them were completely covered with advertisements concealing the inside....More

We love Handel's! There are so many flavors to choose from (my favorite is key lime pie), and it's reasonably priced. There are usually lines on summer nights, but they move pretty quickly. We love that they offer pints and quarts to go, too!

Had this and Jeni's in the same day. I think it might be better. Certainly better flavors than Jenis! LOVE them both though.

Great ice cream! Love the variety of flavors! I was excited to know there is a Handels ice cream in the Columbus area. Always visit the ones in Cleveland & Akron areas. Great as usual!

This location is close to a park which is very convenient. Ice cream is one of the best. I have been to several locations and Powell is one of the nicest.

When asked where I wanted to go for ice cream on my birthday, I chose Handel's. Chocolate chunk is off the charts!

The difficult part is choosing, which adds to the sometimes long lines; you need all that time to decide what of the hundreds of combinations and flavors you want this time. Pistachio is great, chocolate cake batter is even better, and the cherry flavors are...More

Handel's offers many "not your run of the mill" flavors. I had Banana Cream Pie Ice Cream, man o man how good can it be. Just the best.
