Ive gone far and wide to search for the very best cherry vanilla and chocolate chip ice creams. This place has them both!

There are two Hoffman's locations in Spring Lake and Point Pleasant that I go to every summer. They have a great selection and fabulous ice cream - a summer tradition for many families.

I have been going to Hoffmans for about 10 years now. It is my favorite ice cream! Caramel Nut Cluster is the best- I had it in a milk shake and it was AMAZING! On the weekends in the summer it is PACKED though, moved semi quickly but it gets busy. I think it is worth it!

Have been having Hoffmans ice cream for years! LOVE IT! The best at the Jersey Shore. Expect to wait in long lines in the summer, that shows just how good it is!

One of the best ice cream spots in New Jersey. Always crowded, but the kids working here keep it moving. Ice cream is original, full of flavor and devoid of air.

Ice cream is great. Flavors are plentiful. I had brownie ala mode. Daughter had cookie monster. No complains except its crowded but that's what you get when its good.
