Sea Shell has a wonderful selection of ice cream flavors, but we always get a sundae....they are by far the largest sundae I have ever had....don't know of anywhere else that you can still get a "Dusty Road".....look forward to their opening every spring & being served by our favorite waitress ever...Kelly!!

I LOVE the Seashell!!! I can not express enough how much I love this place and how delicious their ice cream is. I love their chocolate éclair because it is simply not a flavor you see everywhere. A trip to Wildwood is NOT complete until I visit the Seashell. The staff is very friendly & courteous. I am sad when... More

What can I say? This ice cream store is like out of a "storybook!" It's a tiny white bungalow with yellow shutters a block from the boardwalk! It's got a zillion weird and yummy flavors and the portions are huge!!! You can sit inside or outside while you lick, slurp or spoon the flavor of your choice! The hours are... More

Had a great time and we love the Sea Shell Ice Cream shop. We spent a few days here in September and stayed at the Tangiers. Very nice place and the staff were so nice and accommodating.

Employees who yell at elderly women and out of nowhere say, "I'm not scooping anymore ice cream!" and walk away from the counter while a number of customers are left standing there?!?!? Crazy and poor customer service! Don't bother. Go to Duffers!

They are closing up for the year and running out of flavors. However, the sundae I ordered was the size of a football. And delish. I had the Brown Derby, vanilla and chocolate ice cream with hot fudge, homemade whip cream, crunchies, jimmies and a cherry on top. The portions are huge. My only complaint is that the flimsy styrofoam... More

All flavors of the most heaping portions of ice cream. Delicious and either single scoop or double scoop they are both very generous portions served in a quaint old fashioned ice cream parlor setting. Friendly, polite young people to serve and greet you.

We stop here on the way out of Wildwood each time. The service is not great but the ice cream is delicious. Love Chocolate Kiss! Cash only, open late!
