Best Ice Cream In Town

My husband and I came in this past weekend and enjoyed a vanilla caramel swirl ice cream with bits of chocolate covered... read more

I normally just get a mint chip cone which is my favorite flavor. It's so good with the big chunks of chips in it. Last summer I tried one of their sundaes and OMG! It was the best. Big scoops, loaded with everything, YUMMY!!!! They were not open yet for the season when I was in Wildwood Crest last week... More

Love this place. They have the best ice cream and the water is so good and refreshing. They do hire allot of foreigners and sometimes English is an issue. The place is the best place for a great treat!

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.
