The best ice cream place on the Jersey Shore. But, there could be lines especially after dinner or when the weather is hot.

Hoffman's has the best ice cream in the area and everyone knows so there is usually a crowd but don't let that deter you. The staff is friendly and very efficient so your wait is not long.

It's great ice cream made on site, and in there Point Pleasant store. Be prepared for long lines during the Summer. However, they are prepared and the line goes quickly. They actually closed for a bit, but the public outcry convinced them to reopen. Just...More

This ice cream is some of the best I've had in Jersey. The prices are great for the sizes! The "line" can be a little confusing, as there really is no start of the line. However, the scoopers are very attentative and can tell who...More
