Love their yogurt because of its high water content; you don't feel so "heavy" after you eat their soft serve yogurt. Kids are always polite who wait on you. Had to say that we missed many nights there due to its popularity, and headed to Menchies instead.

The ice cream at this location is scrumptious. The selection of flavors is more than enough and they have my favorite coconut. Delicious treat at any time of the day. Check this place out.

Hoffman's is a staple in Spring Lake, although there is another location in Point Pleasant as well. The ice cream is good, the maple walnut is really good. But the place needs a serious overhaul. It's old, needs a serious paint job and can sometimes look unkempt. But none of that seems to keep the crowds away. The place is... More

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
