Classic Ice cream experience

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

My family and I have been going here for many years. I have now started bringing my own kids here and we can't go to the Jersey Shore without at least one visit to Hoffmans. If you do plan on visiting during a summer weekend allocate at least 30 minutes of waiting in line during peak times. It is worth... More

The prices are excellent compared to others on the shore. Also, the shakes are significantly larger than at other places. Crowded?, Yes, but they have enough servers to keep the line moving. Fresh ice cream, many many flavors. Not much seating, but families just sit or stand outside and enjoy the ice cream.

Hoffman's in Spring Lake Heights is the sister shop of the Hoffman's in Point Pleasant, which has been around for decades. There are many flavors to choose from: some inventive, some not so, but all are delicious. The ice cream is rich and creamy and chocked full of whatever: oreos, dark chocolate, toasted coconut, almonds, walnut, etc. There are also... More

Love the seasonal changes in flavors, but please bring back my all-time favorite, Coffee Royal! We have been coming here for years. They will even make special cake and pie orders.

There are an abundance of flavors, including seasonal optioins( like pumpkin spice). It is all freshly made with fresh ingredients. It is worth a trip if you are visiting the Jersey Shore.

The quality simply is the best. The workers are informed, friendly, and seem to enjoy their ice cream skills. I buy an ice cream cone or 10 pints and quarts- the service never wavers. For me ice cream = Hoffman's.

As a child my grandmother would always give us a special treat of Hoffman's Ice Cream before we left to go home from vacation. Its the best. And quite possibly the best ever pecan ice cream.
