Great soft serve. Wonderful flavor selection. Coconut Joy one of our favorites! Open during winter months, easy drop in location.

Had ice cream cones here. They make their own ice cream and have many flavors! It was delicious! I got the kids size which was plenty! My husband got a small and it was a double dip!

Delicious homemade ice cream served in generous portions.They are conveniently located on Route 71.We were staying only 2 blocks away which could be dangerous. My wife loved this place!

Lots of flavors and plenty of toppings are available. The flavors are not just your typical vanilla and chocolate either. There is definitely something for every taste bud. Prices are a little high, but pretty standard for the area. in summer the lines an be crazy long.

Hoffman;s ice cream is creamy and delicious. A great selection of flavor and generous portions. I have visited Hoffman's in Spring Lake, Long Branch, and Little Silver and find the same friendly service in each location.

Everything you could want in homemade flavors and cones. You get so much ice cream my kids couldn't eat it all. You will wait but they give you a ticket and it goes quickly. Worth the wait.

I am originally a Jersey Shore girl familiar to the Point Pleasant shop. This one in Spring Lake offered the same great ice cream!

Ice cream is good not amazing Hardly any place to sit "in season" people standing around in parking lot gulping cold treats. For the money you would expect some benches chairs an umbrella or two

After dinner by the beach walked here for a post meal dessert and was a true oasis. Large place with ample staff and seating indoors and out. Of course the ice cream was great but caveat: order a kid size for single scoop, "small" means two scoops. Great ice cream.
