We are fortunate that our LBI house is walking distance to Meltdown! It's a great place and their ice cream is excellent. They also have soft serve and water ice and are generous with their servings--a small here would be a medium elsewhere. Highly recommended for ice cream lovers!

Stopped here after the normal place we go to was mobbed. Also was cut off. So we decided to stop here on the way back to our house. Line wasn't bad. Ice cream was excellent. People were friendly. Recommended by me.

They changed the way to get your order and it is 10 times better now. The staff is friendly and quick, and the ice cream is consistently tasty. Don't be dissuaded by the long lines; it goes fast and it's worth it!

Been coming to this ice cream and coffee shop for 8 years when I vacation at the beach. The owners and staff are wonderful people and their shop is iconic.

Been eating at California Grill for the last 4 years and hate to think that I missed this great Ice Cream place right next door. Their selection is the perfect amount and their Root Beer Float was amazing. The sizes were perfect for the cost and I was happy that there was nothing left to throw out when my 7... More

Great selection and great quality. I especially like the caramel pretzel. My dad always gets the rum raisin which is hard to find typically.
