Ice cream was great here! Their servings are huge, well worth the price! There was always a line, but it moved fairly quickly. They had plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, but we took ours to go since our hotel was conveniently located half a block away.

Found this place by looking it up on trip advisor. Was very pleased. Crowded but no wait time. Alot of favors , even had my favorite, banana ice cream. Was fresh. The portion size is a great value for the money. Prices were resonable. Will definitely go again. Only issue is parking.

Stumbled upon this place while walking around Wildwood and boy are we glad we found it. Just wanted a little ice cream snack and this place hit the spot. We were going to stop at Duffers but that was a little pricey for just ice cream and we didn't want a big portion. But Sea Shell was just right. Staff... More

$5 gets you a "bucket" if ice cream! We went for dessert after dinner and were surprised by the flavor options. My husband got the chocolate eclair which was phenomenal! I got the toffee bar crunch which was very good! We asked for a scoop and were given about 4! That's their "scoop" size lol. Who doesn't love ice cream!?!

We loved it. they are open late and the owner was great. Loved that he controlled the crowd standing outside and would limit the number of customers allowed in at one time.

The nasty man at the front door is the first turnoff. The Icecream is hear shies that you can get at home.

A nice family place with great tasting ice cream. People line up outside just to get their fill. Never a disappointment.

Best Ice Cream shop in the Wildwoods. We look forward to Sea Shell every year. Our favorites are the Chocolate Chip, CC Mint, Black Raspberry, and Maple Walnut. A must try!
