Hoffman's Ice Cream

Reviewed 25 April 2018

I have been going to Hoffmans for over 25 years, and it is still the best ice cream in New Jersey. As you have read, they get very busy on the weekends, especially in the evenings. There is a reason for that. The ice cream is that good!. Is the place messy, with dirty floors or sticky tables on the weekends, especially in the evenings, yes. But honestly, people, is that so unreasonable. Are your standards so high that you would not enjoy the ice cream because there were napkins on the floor? Insane! Let it go, or go there on a Tuesday afternoon where you will find a well maintained interior. And if that just doesnt work for you, then eat in your car or get it to go like 85% of everyone else. It's ice cream folks. not Christies Steakhouse.

Located in several places at the Jersey shore this ice cream is not to be missed. The flavors constantly change so it is sure to make everyone happy. The portions are large and just perfect for the ice cream lover.

if u want to be served by rude bothered kids, in a dirty place that relies on its outdated reputation, this is the place for you: ice cream is good, some of the kids working are nice, but most are arrogant disinterested. also this place is dirty. i live around the corner and end up here alot cause location is convenient, but this review is spot on. oh and if youre in a rush, forget it... cause they never are. tonite march 10, dude behind counter is the most consistent in his rudeness... somebody fire this horrible brand ambassador.... he wont care.

Our favorite ice cream emporium at the Jersey Shore, with more flavors than you can sample in a season. And, of all things, they offer a military discount!

Hoffman's can get very crowded during the summer or anytime we get nice weather at the shore. The staff is good and they get the line moving pretty quickly. So many flavors to choose from and lots of toppings too. It's all good.
