Best ice cream

My very favorite place for ice cream on a hot summer night. The ice cream is Fabulous and the portions are huge. I love thete peanut butter and Chocolate and their sundaes are wonderful. If you are in Wildwood, you just have to stop here for a great dish of ic.

Love this ice cream! HUGE scoops so plan accordingly. Nice location. We cap off every summer weekend we spend in Wilwood with a trip to Shell's followed by a stroll along the boardwalk.

Sea Shell has had the best ice cream on the island for my entire life, but their service has gone completely down hill over the past few years. I'm giving their review a 4/5 simply because their ice cream is 9/10; their service is hardly a 7/10 for an average of four, but I'd rather have a great product with... More

Went to the Sea Shell for ice cream. Service was good, the ice cream size and taste was very good. The place doesn't have much in the way of atmosphere but is centrally located, good for a quickie ice cream fix

My husband was so happy to be able to have ice cream since they had sugar free. Serving size was incredible, enough for two or three to share.

We walked up to a long line, but the owner moved it fast. He was efficient. We felt he was in a nicer way the Ice Cream Nazi- move in, know what you want, pay for it, get it, and move on. The ice cream was good but not great.

If you like ice cream you will love this place. The sundaes are huge! Don't have a big dinner before you go.

We went back! The portions are huge and the flavors choices were great. The servers let us try flavors so we were not disappointed. We tried something different on each visit and tasted each others and there were no losers. The lines are sometimes long but the boss keeps an eye out to get everyone served as soon as possible...
