They have the best Ice Cream, possibly in all of New Jersey. In the summer the lines are extremely long but it's well worth it. Veterans get a really nice discount also.

Great visit after checking out the antique stores. Their ice cream is the best, and the variety is extensive. I opted for the cookie monster , it's delicious but be warned you will leave with a blue tongue!

We just came back from Harold's New York Style Deli in the Raritan Center and needed a little something to coat the top. Coffee, Coffee Oreo and Raspberry did the trick. It was great.

On our way to the Jersey Shore, we always stop at Hoffmans. Ice cream and frozen yogurt made on site. Great selection. Generous portions but a little pricey. It is so popular that, in the summer, be prepared to wait as much as 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Portions are pretty big - certainly not skimpy! An institution in the Pt. Pleasant Beach area which certainly lives up to its reputaion.

After reading the reviews we knew we must visit. As others wrote before, The place wasn't clean though there was no line, service was great and friendly, ice cream was good, a bit too sweet but I guess it's because we barely eat sweets.

I have been going to Hoffman's since I was a little girl and now it is my daughters favorite place. Their ice cream is always fresh and never icey. We will drive 20 minutes for a cone because there is no other place that compares! The staff consists of the most polite young adults and you always get your money's... More

It's not even close. You won't find a better ice cream until late you.head north to Ben and Jerry's or west to the Penn state creamery.

Hoffman's is a beach icon. Good ice cream, not anywhere near as good as the long summer lines would suggest, but with flavors from traditional to unusual. This is a treat for health reasons and for economics. $6.25 for a pint is too pricey even for a good, not great, ice cream. I would personally opt for Hagen Daas or... More
