Their store made ice creams are hard to top. Instead of flavoring vanilla ice cream each flavor is developed with its own recipe. The sundaes and malts rock. Some may feel it is a bit pricey although the crowds during the summer indicate it is worth every penny. They also support blood drives!

We love ice cream and we love Hoffman's. It may be best in NJ. I ordered Almond Turtle which is mocha ice cream, caramel, and chocolate covered almonds. Unreal !! My husband inhaled his butter pecan and proclaimed it best ever. Only problem... we live hour and half away!!

I love ice cream. I've eaten it all over the US and in various countries. This is hands down the best ice cream. Period. It is super creamy with excellent flavors (not a bad one in the bunch). If you can only stop in one place in Point Pleasant, this should be it.

I have been visiting Hoffman's for over 60 years and have introduced my children and grandchildren to the variety and quality of ice cream available here. It is the best ice cream in the area. We frequently buy it by the quart or half gallon and avoid the lines at night while eating it every night while in the Point... More

The place lives on its reputation. Its a bit dirty and not in the greatest repair. The staff is very friendly and its a tradition for most families. The wait is long and the price is a bit high, BUT I have to go whenever in PP beach.

This homemade ice cream place is heavenly. Portions are huge (we ordered all sizes from kiddie to large) with the large equating to 3-4 scoops of ice cream. Flavors were genuinely delicious - we tried espresso mocha chip (has chocolate-covered coffee beans in it), cherry vanilla, strawberry and toasted coconut. There are tons of choices for toppings too. Staff is... More

Yes, there seems to be a line for ice cream at Hoffman's. Because it is worth it! My husband has been coming here since he was a kid. He took me here on dates down the shore. Now we take our kids. From basic vanilla to compounds of chocolate+candy+creams+toppings! The staff usually handles the line in an orderly manner. My... More
