We took a group of children for ice cream and told him to get whatever they want it. If you would see the smiles on their face because each one got something different and the staff there was very accommodating. The ice cream is actually almost taste like homemade. Reasonably priced but in the summer you will

Stopped by Hoffman's after dinner in Point Pleasant. Great choice The Ice Cream was excellent with many choices. More surprising was the large portions. Great value for large servings. Highly recommend this as the top Ice Cream place near the shore

Been around forever and never lets you down. The ice cream is always fresh and flavorful and the toppings are the best. Don't miss it next time you are at the beach.

This place attracts crowds. The locals and tourists love it. I brought my mom here once and she can be very critical about food but she loved Hoffman's ice cream. I love Hoffman'a ice cream. It is the best down the Jersey Shore as far as I'm concerned.

They have the best Ice Cream, possibly in all of New Jersey. In the summer the lines are extremely long but it's well worth it. Veterans get a really nice discount also.

Great visit after checking out the antique stores. Their ice cream is the best, and the variety is extensive. I opted for the cookie monster , it's delicious but be warned you will leave with a blue tongue!

We just came back from Harold's New York Style Deli in the Raritan Center and needed a little something to coat the top. Coffee, Coffee Oreo and Raspberry did the trick. It was great.
