Hoffmans's ice cream is a must visit at the shore. They have a great assortment of flavor and the ice cream is delicious. A great family place!

This is an area favorite where the ice cream is delicious and the servings more than ample. They even have low-carb vanilla (wish they had a bit more low-carb selections.)\ When ordering, I usually ask for one scoop which is more than satisfying.

I was just dying for a good soft serve spiral cone. I had mine on a waffle cone. My husband had two different hard ice creams on a waffle cone. They were delicious and very generous.

A quintessential ice cream shop at The Shore. Long lines during summer, and delicious homemade ice cream. This is the real deal and a truly iconic spot.

Standing in a line of 5 for 15 min and one had been served? Maybe they were all trainees? But seemed to be the culture there. Left and went to Sunday's where the service is always super fast and great product.

in the summer, this place is hopping! But it has all the flavors anyone could want and on a hot summer night, it's a win for all! they also do birthday parties during the year.

Ice cream was very good, good value and good service. I was part of a large group and they handled the group with a dedicated scooper.

The icecream is great. Just make sure to plan it out correctly when you go. The only problem:The lines are sooo long. It eventually moves, but there are usually only like two or three people working. But I would recommend it off season or not...More
