Had one "Gigantic" scoop of peach ice cream with whipped cream and a cherry on top! It was served by the young lady behind the counter with a smile and a friendly "thank you". I believe they have 60 flavors and all kinds of specials. You must try the double chocolate milk shake.

What's not to like? Multiple exotic flavors in this corner ice cream shop that looks like a yellow gingerbread house. We've been coming here for years, brings a smile each time!

We noticed the Sea Shell Ice cream driving in the morning. We decided to give it a try after our nightly walk on the boardwalk. The place is one block from the boardwalk, it looks nice and different from outside and you can set inside our out. A lot of people were there and a person at the door letting... More

Walking back to our hotel after a night on the WW Boardwalk my sister was hungry for a banana split. Decided to try this place. Let's just say "My sister was right!" Big dish with all the right trimmings and 2 spoons. Definitely made the walk back a whole lot more enjoyable.

Great place to end your night at the boardwalk. Plenty of inside and outside sitting. Huge scoops! No need to order a double scoop since their scoops are so big.

An fun ice cream parlor a block from the boardwalk. No craziness - or long waits - just good ice cream. Nice old-fashioned atmosphere.

This was our first visit to the Sea Shell but definitely not our last. It is located in what appears to be an old summer cottage off the boardwalk and within walking distance from the Convention Center. We went there on a weekday evening after mini golf and walked down the block to the Wildwood sign with our ice cream.... More

We went there with 4 adults and 3 children. They have a great selection of flavors but there was only 2 sizes and the small was huge. The children ate about half and even I couldn't finish mine. Smaller portions and a lower price would make this place great.

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.
