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!

Ice cream was definitely great! However, the tables were not clean at all. Tables needed to be cleared and wiped down. There were no lines and two staffers. No reason for the mess. Would have given excellent otherwise.

There are two Hoffman's -- one in Spring Lake and one in Point Pleasant Beach. We usually hit the one in Spring Lake on the way out of town -- with hundreds of others, LOL -- or after dinner on the way back to the highway. Great ice cream, consistently good and large portions. It can be very crowded, but... More

You might have to wait in line, but the shore experience isn't complete until you have the incredible home made ice cream from Hoffman's.

Generations of families are seen at this landmark. Almost always a line of organized chaos in search of the perfect concoction. Great quality but not cheap. My kids love this place where they are certain to see their friends and family.

Hoffman's was the place to go after Little League games, school plays, etc. Local and tourists alike love this place. Ice cream is good, the line is long but moves quickly due to very efficient staff.

We have spent summers in Spring Lake for 20 years, and it is interesting how ice cream places go in and out of favor. At the moment, Hoffman's is hot, hot, hot. Expect a large crowd, people sometimes lined up out the door. There is a large selection, quality is good, the line moves fast and prices are competitive with... More
