Excellent ice cream, lots of flavors to choose from, along with items to fold-in, add-on and pour over. But limited seating, so go when it's not busy, if possible.

Growing up in Pt. Pleasant, I have been lucky enough to have Hoffman's as my local ice cream place for my whole life! All of their frozen treats are exceptional and this is a must stop when you are in Pt.Pleasant! Sooo good!

Finally made the stop here with family, if you think it’s expensive here go to Cliff’s! The ice cream was good and would definitely go back. Poor parking and design with the demand of this place, no where is perfect.

My family and I stopped here after our day at the beach. We were pleasantly surprised with the amount of different ice cream flavors. The cookie monster was amazing. Definitely worth waiting in line for!
