Well, well, well ice cream lovers, if you are near Point Pleasant, you MUST go to Hoffman's Ice Cream. Be warned though, you will wait. A long while. Especially if you go on a weekend night, where it's not uncommon to wait over 45 minutes. But, it's worth the wait. Aside from the many, many flavors and toppings to choose... More

I love this place! Best ice cream I've ever had. Amazing flavors. Taste fresh every time too. I would highly recommend this ice cream store! Nice benches outside to sit on to enjoy the ice cream

We always visit Hoffman's at least once (sometimes every night!) when we visit Point Pleasant Beach. It's a staple when we are on vacation that the whole family looks forward to.

Everyone told me go there for best ice cream in the world. Well the ice cream is good, but the best ever it is not. There are better places on the Jersey shore for ice cream. Write me and I'll tell you where.

Busy place, especially after the Thursday night fireworks. But worth the wait. Their ice cream is delicious. I usually get a simple bowl, but they have wide variety of flavors and toppings.

Thick milk shake out of any flavor (how about Coffee Oreo for example) then a scoop of your favorite "floating" on the top (let's choose Espresso Mocha Chunk)...oh my, oh my, oh my is that ever good!

I have gone to Hoffman's many times and it has never once disappointed. It is usually extremely busy from 5:00 to 12:00 with lines out the door (during the summer). They have a very efficient system where what seems like a 30 minute wait when you walk in only ends up being around 10. The ice cream options vary from... More

If you haven't been here make the trip. One if the best shore ice cream locations. Always busy during the Summer so expect a line. Tight parking but worth the stop. Love this place! One of two in the area.

Ice Cream, Gelato, Sherbert and more. Got a small(?) cone of ice cream which had about a half pint on the cone. Place was packed but service was quick. Quality was good. All take out service.
