I've been going to Hoffman's dfor decades! Delicious Ice Cream but last year, we saw a decline in the cleanliness at the Spring Lakke location and this year, no improvement. Long lines to get the ice cream great you but while waiting, you'll notice a dirty floor with trash like napkins all around. No urgency to clean up as we... More

The ice cream is wonderful! They do such a great business they really need to expand their seating. Will definitely go back.

This is the place to go for ice cream. We stopped yesterday after having lunch and it was great. The Coconut Joy is my favorite but you can't go wrong with strawberry bon bon or any other flavor in the store. It is absolutely the best thing to do at the shore. It was late afternoon, no lines, just great... More

Great ice cream, but the place itself has zero charm. The seating area felt kind of dirty and wish they had fun outside seating.

I've been going to Hoffman's for years, and it just gets better and better. Depending on when you go, there may be a significant wait, but it is well worth it.

I stopped by Hoffmans with family. There was a very long line, however the service is very quick and it moved along nicely. The ice cream, mocha fudge chunk was absolutely the best ice cream I have ever tasted and the small was more than enough for me. It was so good we went back the next day. YUM!

I've been to just about every ice cream joint down the shore from Point Pleasant to Cape May and I have to say that Hoffman's is in my top three! It is really hard to go into Hoffman's and just try one flavor. You can tell right away that they make their ice cream fresh. Their Peanut Butter Nugget and... More

We've been driving to Hoffman's in Spring Lake for over 15 years (we live about 30 to 40 minutes away depending on seasonal traffic). While we have several Icecream locations closer to home, nothing is as good as Hoffman's. The only exception is Beaches and Cream located in the WDW Resort at the Beach and Yacht Club Resorts (way too... More

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.
