Ice cream was ok. Not as magnificent as others state. Service was excellent, they have a lot of staff It is dirty. Sticky floors inside and outside. They need to clean more often. Clean inside. Power wash outside. Expensive. Twenty six bucks for two regular...cones and two kids cones. Way too much.More

We have been coming here for years. Both locations are great. The only complaint I have is that it is always dirty. The floor, the doors, the glass showcase YUK. But the cherry vanilla ice cream is the best!

At a wedding I was attending, the couple had the Hoffman's mobile truck serving up treats late night. The ice cream was fresh and fantastic and the servers were friendly. 10/10 would recommend.

Large portions and outstanding flavour, this icon of the Belmar- Spring Lake area is a must for dessert or snack. It’s a friendly experience with so many ice cream flavours to choose. On a hot day get an inside seat if possible or get your...order to go and head for some shade.More

I haven't been to Hoffman's in years since moving to South Jersey. Meet friends for dinner in the area and decided to get ice cream. Still good ice cream. No bathroom due to covid-19. There was social distancing and masks while waiting on line.

We love COOKIE MONSTER! Very friendly and fast service. Can’t beat Hoffman’s ice cream if you plan on going down the shore.

Hoffman’s ice cream I heard so many good things about it, and it held up to be true. Fresh creamy ice cream and the best I had in a long time. So if your in Spring Lake, NJ make sure you stop in and enjoy...their delicious shakes, sundaes and regular cones.More

I had the Strawberry Bon Bon ice cream and it was so delicious! We had a party of eight of us. Everybody loved their ice cream. Only criticisms--We were not allowed to sit on the exterior benches...and they had no cones. We had to eat...our ice cream in a bowl with a spoon while leaning against the car. Still it was some of the best ice cream I ever had. We had been at the beach all day and this was just a nice ending to the day.More

Very disappointed I have been coming here for years and we expected the quality to be the same as what we were used to. We each ordered a soft serve chocolate ice cream and the texture was grainy and left an awful after taste after...2 bites we could not touch it and when we complained the response was “I’m sorry” and no refund was offered. It is a shame they could not make good on this. Skip this place and go to carvel- cheaper and better.More

The ice cream is smooth, creamy and delicious but COVID restrictions ruined our first visit. We didn't mind waiting in line but then we saw the signs stating that we were not supposed to sit on the outdoor benches. By the time we took our...ice cream to our hotel, it was a melty mess. How would sitting on outdoor benches differ from outdoor dining?More
