In addition to great ice cream, Beach Plum makes the best milk shakes I've ever had. Wide assortment of flavors, fast service. They even have a small parking lot.

This is without a doubt our favorite ice cream in the area. All made on the premises. Wide range of excellent ices, plus gelato and sherbet. Try the salted caramel ice cream!

I think the legendary Hoffmans is better but this was pretty good. Dinner at Vic's and ice cream at Beach Plum and you have a good night.

Fresh ice cream and great flavors. I wish the place didn't have a strange odor to the outside - I would frequent more often. Some of their more unusual flavors - cinnamon churros ice cream and Maine blueberry - are delicious!

With three kids, we stop at a lot of ice cream places. Beach plum is worth a stop if you are in the area! Great flavors and huge portions. Order the kid's size for sure! Enjoy

I've been going to beach plum every summer for years. It never disappoints. The staff, mostly students on summer vacation, always seem happy and motivated. The ice cream has maintained its level of excellence throughout the years. I especially appreciate the real hot fudge and whipped cream (heavy cream), rather than the canned stuff you often get these days. I... More

I agree with a number of other reviewers. If you want convenience of ice cream on Main Street in Bradley Beach, Plum is a good option. The servers are pleasant and the shop is very clean.

Once again The Beach Plum has opened for the season and is as great as ever. Some other ice cream places at the Monmouth county Shore have longer lines and rave reviews but none can compare. Love it!

The ice cream is just yummy. Again you may have to wait for service after 4. Its that good. It is located on a busy highway so the view while you enjoy your yummy is very loud and limited. Most folks sit inside, small seating area, or in their cars.But that doesnt stop folks from coming in droves.
