Hoffman's has to be hands-down the best tasting ice-cream in the area. We have tried all of them, but always come back. They have an ample selection of flavors for any Ice-Cream connossieur, and also offer soft serve from the machine. Try the milk shakes, absolutely fabulous. Their service is great, and always are helpful if you want to sample... More

My husband used to visit Hoffman's when he visited for the summer during his childhood. Now, it's still his favorite and must visit for our kids. Great selection and friendly customer service. The milkshakes are amazing! I definitely consumed more than I should have, but I couldn't help myself.

Long waits, but as my 9 year old niece says; "it's worth it". Large selection, great shakes. The quintessential Jersey experience.

By far the best place to get ice cream near the beach. You know a place is good when no matter when you go there is a line. Their fudge mint cookie may be the best flavor you have ever had and has been featured on food network. 2 locations, spring lake and point pleasant

We live one town away and go to hoffman's all the time, all year long (especially in the summer). I adore ice cream in all it's forms, but I've never had better ice cream anywhere! Every flavor is delicious! Their shakes are also amazing. They were even featured on man vs food on TV. If you're craving I've cream don't... More

I love Ice Cream (who doesn't?) But dang!! wipe the tables and sweep the floors once and a while. We stopped by last Saturday evening to share an Ice Cream and found the place very dirty. Tables were so gross we couldn't sit down at one. There were plenty of workers behind the counter but they were all too busy... More

Having read the very wide range of reviews for this place, we went there today. They do have a lot of flavors available and the portions are very generous. The ice cream is also fresh and of good quality. Walking in the front door, the first thing I noticed was an overwhelming smell of bleach or chlorine. But in spite... More

They have so many choices of ice cream to choose from it was difficult to pick just one. The portions were huge and not overly priced.
