I honestly don't know if they... More

A trip to the shore never goes by without a visit or three to Hoffman's. You cannot miss with their Ice Cream. Many flavors all made on site. Just get in there and try it. You'll never regret it. We shall return!

You'll find lots of good flavors, all creamy and delicious. Definitely a favorite spot known to all who frequent the area, as it is always crowded. Portions are large and service friendly. Looking foward to going back to try a new flavor. So far, I'm all about pistachio and butter pecan.

If been coming here since I was a kid - great ice cream! This location is certainly a bit cleaner than the Spring Lake location but not as spotless as it used to be. We're concerned about the trend.

The staff is what really makes this place. They are all young local kids that always provide service with a smile. Yes. It is very busy in the summer and you will probably have to wait. It is the best ice cream in town but Nastos of Newark still has my heart!

Always good, lots of flavors. A Point Pleasant classic. A great place to visit on a hot summer night. Lots of outdoor bench seating. We love to walk to Hoffman's from our Point Pleasant home. Dog friendly outside.

...set your flux capacitors for 800 Richmond St, Pt. Pleasant Beach. It will be as though your tongue threw a party for your mouth.

My kids (aged 9, 6, and 2) swear this is the best ice cream place in the world. Despite the sometimes hectic atmosphere created by lots of sunburned adults and teenagers clamoring for their particular fix, the service is always friendly and unhurried.
