We have heard of Hoffmans frequently but never had the opportunity to stop in. I can honestly say there ice cream was among the best I've ever had – creamy and delicious! I had Oreo!

Excellent ice cream flavor choices, and excellent ice cream....I have enjoyed every flavor that I have tried over the last 45+ years. They know how to make ice cream. For those that are retired military, ask for the military discount.

Our favorite ice cream place on the Jersey Shore. A couple of them are statewide award winners. And they also do great community service. They had a blood drive there today. To every blood donor they gave away a pint of free ice cream.

If you go, be prepared for HUGE amount of ice cream even in the small size. But you can always share a serving with another! The flavors are great, and the quality excellent.

The ice cream was delicious, the service was fine. The atmosphere to me, was definitely lacking. And then they had a really loud radio on. Nothing cute about the place, but with the crowds, I guess they don't have to.

So many different flavors to choose from. Had to try anything with peanut butter and chocolate. Butter pecan was also pretty good. Worked up an appetite just walking from the downtown and back to our hotel on the ocean front.
