I great up eating Shells as a late night treat. We would go and bring back a variety of flavors, put them in the middle of the table and sample different flavors. I also loved eating there because their sundaes are amazing. I especially love the Blueberry Cloud and enjoy looking at their Norman Rockwell prints.

We've been going to seashell ice cream for years and have enjoyed their selection and service for many years. It is an ice cream parlor not a resturaunt and a good place to stop by.

The portions were huge and the icecream was delicious. Great old fashioned style icecream parlor with both inside and outside seating. Icecream sodas are hard to find nowadays and theirs was amazing!

Full disclosure..... I'm not a big ice cream eater. Once or twice a year I eat ice cream with my Dad because he is the "Ice Cream King!" He eats this frozen treat every day of his life. We're here in Wildwood for our annual pilgrimage to "Roar to the Shore" Wildwood Bike Week. And on our first night in... More

They give heaping portions of icecream. I've been going here for some 30 years and now take my children. Great icecream. The best way to end our trip.

This ice cream place was a staple of my visits to Wildwood as a child. I remember the portions being big but assumed I was just so small, it was proportionate. They are still scooping and the ice cream size compared to the price charged (for a resort town) is amazing. The whipped cream still tastes home made, the fudge... More

A single scoop is enough for a cone unless you havent eaten all day. Also, a banana split will feed two people easily. Nice selection, friendly staff. A must visit!
