“What a surprise.”
Review of Show Place Ice Cream Parlour - CLOSED

Show Place Ice Cream Parlour
Description: Since 1976, New Jersey's original singing ice cream parlour featuring the "Waitri" who serve you theatrical themed sundaes all while singing jingles, songs, dances that correspond with each theme. You might even have to get up and sing for your ice cream! Very interactive, fun for the whole family!

After a very loud thunderstorm, we came out of our hotel to have ice cream at Showplace. The ice cream was really good (better than what we had at other places). And the entertainment - it was a pleasant surprise. Due to the weather, the room was only partly filled but the staff did their best to please. Try it for the ice cream and enjoy the rest. I won't spoil the surprise.

HUGE ice cream sundaes and lots of fun. You can get the ice cream to-go, but I reccommend being seated for the shows which typically last 40 minutes. You may have to wait in line, but it's worth it. Prepare for someone in your part to sing/dance for their ice cream :)

Like most places on LBI, Cash only

Most reviews have it spot on. Basically Broadway Show themed Ice Cream with individual and group participation, as well as a performance by the wait staff/actors.
The servings are huge, the ice cream was good. Some times it got loud but overall easy to see/hear. Show was an hour, we got there for the first show (6pm) 10 min early and only waited that long, with kids I would definately target the 6pm show a few min early.
Our party of 10 averaged about $9 (with tip) each (CASH OLNY) for good ice cream and lots of laughs. I was told to go by a coworker and was pleasantly surprised by how much fun we all had.

The ice cream was decent, but it's the show you go here for. Tons of fun to be entertained while you eat. Beware that they WILL make someone at your table get up & either sing, dance or whatever. All the customers who did it while we were there stunk so nothing to be embarrassed about - it's all in fun.

If you are on LBI for one night, you need to make this one of your stops. This is an island institution and tradition for thousands. I promise you will be glad you went and the ice cream ain't bad either.
