“A Rochester Institution!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Abbott's custard is delicious! There are branches throughout the Rochester area, as well as in Bill Gray's restaurant locations. However, the most well-known is the seasonal location near the beach in Charlotte. Cones, dishes, sundaes & other frozen treats are available. There are changing flavors, in addition to the standards such as vanilla, chocolate, & chocolate almond.

“ROC's best ice cream..!!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Definitely a must see...when in ROC..!! The chocolate almond ice cream is arguably one of the best around anywhere..!! When people leave ROC...next to Wegmans...Abbott's Frozen Custard is the most missed place in town..!!

If you like frozen custard, you definitely need to try Abbott's - I had a large chocolate cone and it was rich and delicious!

“Addicting”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

The best custard ever, anywhere. If you like chocolate and almonds, try the chocolate almond custard.
