I don't know why this place is rated so good, I honestly think it's the location. Ice cream isn't the best and parking is a nightmare, Lots of better ice cream places in wildwood!

We loved Sea Shell! It is a fantastic value in that one scoop feels like 3 at a regular parlor. We actually took doggie bags of our two scoop sundaes home since they were so large! The hot fudge sauce was thick and rich, as was the ice cream itself. A must-go if you are in Wildwood, NJ!

Don't see what all the hype is about; they do have nice staff and the price of just their ice cream is reasonable, but the specials is where they get you. The ice cream taste like Eddy's carton ice cream you buy at a supermarket, and didn't taste like anything special at all. The root beer float tasted like water... More

Huge portions! Great ice cream and great service. Parking can be tough if it is a busy night. A bit pricey but worth it. A great shore ice cream spot.

Very good ice cream. An attractive building, with parking on the side. A single scoop cone or cup is more like four scoops. As good as it gets for your shore-time ice cream fix....do not pass it by....

The Sea Shell Ice Cream Parlor is a definite must while we vacation in Wildwood Crest each summer! Fast, friendly service, it's very clean, and delicious ice cream!

Worth the trip, only get the single dip, they're big, a double is really for lovers. They have a lot of flavors too chose from, my favorite is Butter Pecan or Strawberry, who am I kidding I like the all.

Huge portions and delicious ice cream on a warm evening are one of the things I always look forward to while on vacation. Sea Shell Ice Cream never disappoints. I love sitting outside at the little tables and "trying" to eat the ice cream before it melts. Just seeing the outside of the building when coming into town always brings... More
