My kids can't get enough of the FROZEN LADY!

A wildwood MUST! Scoops is not just fantastic ice cream but an experience. I could spend hours just looking at all the memorabilia, not to mention the retro candy. My kids fondly refer to the waitress statue behind the counter as the "frozen lady"...they can't wait to see her year-after-year. A... read more

Long lines out the door. You have to fight people for a table to sit inside so you don't get eaten by bugs while you have your ice cream. I have to say it was very good. Almost, worth the long line. Just extremely expensive. So be prepared. They also don't take credit or debit cards so have cash on... More

If you like to reminisce then this is the place for you. No table service, order at the counter and watch your ice cream dish being made, but when you sit down at a table you cannot help but look everywhere even the ceiling. Records and posters on the walls from the stars of the 50s and 60s. Old tv... More

Very cute place, decorated with booths made from classic cars and a lot of 50s memorabilia, However, the ice cream itself is ok but nothing great.

Very cool Ice Cream Parlor if you are into nostalgic decor from the 50's and 60's! You could easily spend a hour looking at all the memorabilia from the past! A little away from the main area of the Wildwoods, Boardwalk area but worth the ride as there is able parking on site. Many ice cream flavors to choose from,... More

Ice cream was very good - 50's... 60's decorum. A lot of fun to check out all of the cool memorabilia... Definitely worth stopping in.

Great place to take the kids for ice cream! Fun to sit in the old cars! So many flavors to choose from, and lots of toppings to boot! My wife even was able to get a frozen banana dipped in chocolate and peanut butter! AND there's a giant Elvis near the cash register!

Expensive, rude service, good ice cream. Doesn't live up to the reviews of "great, friendly service." Background music is nice.
