We've been coming to Sea Shell for over 30 years. The ice cream portions are extra large and beyond delicious! Can't wait to visit again next year.

Hands down my favorite ice cream shop in Wildwood! Whenever my family goes to the shore on vacation, we always make sure to stop in for ice cream!

A trip to the WIldwoods is not complete without at least ONE trip to the Sea Shell! We love it there! It's a must try! You will be back more than once! We prefer eat in rather than take out. Also, be prepared for HUGE portions!

Always need to make a trip to Shells, it's tradition! Their one scoop of ice cream is a lot, so think twice about 2 scoops if you aren't a big eater :) They only accept cash, so keep that in mind before heading out.

Used to go every summer as a child and still just as good as I can remember. Really great assortment of flavors. They let you sample a few before choosing and the portions are large for the price especially compared to other places in the area.

We love to go to the Sea Shell when we are in town. We were running late one night and afraid that they would close before we got there we called to see how late they were open. We got voice mail and the owner actually called back to tell us that they were busy and would be staying open... More

Relaxing atmosphere. Indoor and outdoor seating. Yummy ice cream with many flavors. Servers were quick yet not overly friendly or cheerful.

This is the place that everyone seems to visit. The ice cream is good, but the service can be a little slow. No rush to get some treats. Besides, you are on vacation :)
