Did you say ICE CREAM?

An ice cream lover's delight. There is a flavor for everyone, and all are made fresh and hand scooped. If you are craving an ice cream cone or a dish, and you do not have the flavor you want in your freezer, this is THE place to go along the Jersey Shore.

This is a great place to go (as witnessed by the long lines and lengthy wait) as part of your "day at the beach" experience. But as far as gourmet ice cream goes, this place doesn't cut it. Any ice cream that has brownie in it shouldn't be cubes of unidentifiable chocolate. It should be real brownie. Place is a... More

So many flavors to chose from. Each looked delicious. We chose vanilla with fudge, chocolate explosion, mint fudge Oreo, chocolate, and mint chocolate chip. We even got a dog size vanilla for Charlie, our Boston Terrier. Everyone agreed that the ice cream was delicious. Will definitely try other flavors on our next visit.

Hoffman's has great ice cream with many flavors but there is never enough help and they are very unorganized. There is never enough table and chairs to sit at and the table are never clean.

They have the BEST butter pecan anywhere! Even though they have a great list of flavors, I always go for my favorite!

The ice cream has excellent texture. The flavor choice is wide and varies day to day. Taste great too!. Beats the commercial stuff hands down.

The line was out the door when we arrived. It was worth the wait. Try the chocolate and peanut butter combination. They have many flavors of ice cream to choose from. Cones, dishes or Sundaes---have it your way and you can't go wrong. Great taste and service. Love this place!
