“THE BEST ice cream in NJ!”

Hoffman's Ice Cream
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Hoffmans has the best ice cream ever. Many flavors and cones to choose from hard and soft ice cream. Ice cream cakes and other pre-maid items are ready for purchase. My favorites are the vanilla chocolate chip and the vanilla malt ball. The chocolate chip chunks in both are huge and delicious and the ice cream is so creamy...you can taste the quality as everything is homemade right there. NO nasty aftertaste as you would get from a Dairy Queen or store bought ice cream. A MUST to go to if you visit the Jersey Shore area. And yes it is pricey but heh - it IS the BEST!! The place gets packed at peak times duriing the summer nights, but believe me and everyone else that voted this place #1 on Trip Advisor...it IS definately worth the wait!!!

Hoffman's is one of our favorite ice cream places at the shore. The place is nicely kept. The ice cream is delicious. What more could a body want?

I don't know why it has taken me so long to go into Hoffman's, but the ice cream was delicious. If you are in the area, make sure you go...it is waaaay better than what you get at the boardwalk.

Family atmosphere, great ice cream- fairly priced - with a touch of the old ice ream parlor feel. Service is very good and the choices are outstanding. During season, there will be lines - don't be discouraged- they move quickly and the wait is more than worth it !

It's amazing to me how many people will spend so much money on good ice cream. The ice cream is great although not cheap. Some smaller portions are not even offered such as milk shakes. Yet the place is always busy, especially with locals.
