Our favorite ice cream place on the Jersey Shore. A couple of them are statewide award winners. And they also do great community service. They had a blood drive there today. To every blood donor they gave away a pint of free ice cream.

If you go, be prepared for HUGE amount of ice cream even in the small size. But you can always share a serving with another! The flavors are great, and the quality excellent.

Been going here for years and the crowds just keep growing. Love their maple walnut, although sometimes it needs abit more maple flavoring. On my most recent visit I noticed that the place was in need of a good cleaning from the windows to the...More

This seems to be the best joint in town. It is always crowded, fair prices and probably THE BEST ice cream in the entire state! Don't worry about the lines, they move fast. Once inside, be prepared to be blown away with all of the...More

The ice cream was delicious, the service was fine. The atmosphere to me, was definitely lacking. And then they had a really loud radio on. Nothing cute about the place, but with the crowds, I guess they don't have to.

So many different flavors to choose from. Had to try anything with peanut butter and chocolate. Butter pecan was also pretty good. Worked up an appetite just walking from the downtown and back to our hotel on the ocean front.

Always go with the grandkids. More flavors than you can imagine. The soft ice cream is delish also. The size of the servings are very generous. Can personally recommend the seasonal flavors like peach as well as the pralines and creme and coffee brownie. Soft...More

Disappointing to see how dirty this place is on a regular basis. Great ice cream and good portions, but the building is not maintained and everything is just dirty. Doesn't help when customers bring their dogs INSIDE and stay inside to eat their ice cream!...More

It's homemade ice cream and the taste proves it. A great selection of flavors, toppings, floats, shakes, etc... A summer staple is Hoffman's Ice Cream! Only downfall is the line at nights and on the weekends (especially in the summer).
