Homemade ice cream

Wow. The ice cream is really delicious. They give you a generous portion and it really does taste rich and homemade. Lots of great flavor sand you can see their ice cream plant from the store.

If you go during peak after-dinner times, expect to wait at least 30 minutes to get your number called, deli-style. It will be worth the wait. You should look around while you are waiting to figure out which of the million flavor you want to make the process go more quickly. The ice cream was great. Worth the wait.

We stopped here while on vacation. We had heard about the popularity of the ice cream shop and the long lines at certain times of the day. We went mid afternoon and there was a line but only for a few minutes. The ice cream is absolutely delicious! It was very creamy and not too sweet. The staff was very... More

We have been taking our daughter there since 1992. Best ice cream on the Jersey shore. Banana ice cream is the best.

Probably the best Ice Cream on the Jersey shore. Nothing fancy about about this Ice Cream shop, just great Ice Cream! They try to rotate their flavors, but they regularly stock and have available several staple favors. Unfortunately, when I was there this past weekend, much to my disappointment, they discontinued one of the those staple favors, which was my... More

We had driven by a night earlier and saw the lines. We were told it was the best ever, don't go if you are watching your weight, one trip and you will want to go every night. Who would t want to try it? The kids were on the boardwalk,,so I thought I would treat myself. I got my ticket... More

This place is a real find. Every time I've been there and this goes for all their locations, there's always a crowd. I can't tell you how many flavors they serve but it has to be close to 30. The only flavor they don't serve is vanilla fudge which is one of my favorites. There must be a high content... More

Hoffman's Ice Cream has a huge selection of home-made ice cream. It's really the best ice cream we have tasted anywhere and the selection is amazing. Nothing on the Point Pleasant Beach boardwalk can touch it. .Expect to have big crowds and long waits on week-ends. It is better to go early or wait until 10 PM.
