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

This will be short and sweet (pun intended). Only in Point Pleasant for 7 nights, but we were in Hoffman's on 4 of them. Although it is somewhat chaotic on a summer evening, it was always well worth the wait. Some of the best Ice Cream i've ever had, the portions were insane and the cost was unbelievably cheap. Cups,... More

This place is extremely busy they were on number 5 and my number was 42 . I live 2 hours away and wasn't waiting . What a shame bc I heard it's really good but you have to be very patient for it. Too many aggravating people and crying kids waiting for ice cream .. tooo long for me .

Not a classic ice cream parlour. This is a great place to take the kids- zillions of kid friendly flavors and toppings. Not really an adult place unless you like your teeth blue. Really really good ice cream. Would like to see more carry out options. Long lines at all hours of the day and night. The kids that work... More

A landmark in Point Beach, the ljnes can be long but fast with great service, wonderful flavours and superlative creamy ice creams. Not stingy on scoop size and fairly priced. Have been coming here for over 20 years with family who always have this on their bucket list.
