Awesome place to enjoy a great after dinner snack. The process for serving during high season is great. The ice cream is excellent and I'd is always a fun stop.

Just love this place over the franchise ice cream! Something to be said for ice cream with fresh whipped cream. It cannot be a trip to the beach without some ice cream from the Sea Shell! Try it..it is worth the trip!

I great up eating Shells as a late night treat. We would go and bring back a variety of flavors, put them in the middle of the table and sample different flavors. I also loved eating there because their sundaes are amazing. I especially love the Blueberry Cloud and enjoy looking at their Norman Rockwell prints.

We've been going to seashell ice cream for years and have enjoyed their selection and service for many years. It is an ice cream parlor not a resturaunt and a good place to stop by.

The portions were huge and the icecream was delicious. Great old fashioned style icecream parlor with both inside and outside seating. Icecream sodas are hard to find nowadays and theirs was amazing!

Full disclosure..... I'm not a big ice cream eater. Once or twice a year I eat ice cream with my Dad because he is the "Ice Cream King!" He eats this frozen treat every day of his life. We're here in Wildwood for our annual pilgrimage to "Roar to the Shore" Wildwood Bike Week. And on our first night in... More
