Only place we go for ice cream, especially the banana splits! Hours are shortened in the fall, usually opening later in the day.

I've loved the Sea Shell ever since I was a child. Some of best memories of the shore involved coming here for ice cream sundaes with my mother. They're still just as incredible as they ever were!

Awesome place to enjoy a great after dinner snack. The process for serving during high season is great. The ice cream is excellent and I'd is always a fun stop.

Just love this place over the franchise ice cream! Something to be said for ice cream with fresh whipped cream. It cannot be a trip to the beach without some ice cream from the Sea Shell! Try it..it is worth the trip!

I great up eating Shells as a late night treat. We would go and bring back a variety of flavors, put them in the middle of the table and sample different flavors. I also loved eating there because their sundaes are amazing. I especially love the Blueberry Cloud and enjoy looking at their Norman Rockwell prints.

We've been going to seashell ice cream for years and have enjoyed their selection and service for many years. It is an ice cream parlor not a resturaunt and a good place to stop by.

The portions were huge and the icecream was delicious. Great old fashioned style icecream parlor with both inside and outside seating. Icecream sodas are hard to find nowadays and theirs was amazing!
