We love coming here when we visit Ventnor, NJ. I love the chocolate peanut butter water ice and my husband loves the waffles and ice cream.

It doesnt get much better than Custards Last Stand. Ive been going there, with my family, for over 20 years and love it every time. There may be lots of other choices, but only Custards stands the time of perfection. Looking forward to 2016!

Ice cream places are plentiful and Custard's is good. There are better in the area so look around. Not what it used to be.

This place has been around for years. The variety is terrific and the custard is outstanding. They offer cakes and waffles and the staff is fast and friendly. They have a small parking lot which makes it easier since on street parking is difficult on weekends. Perfect end to a beach day in the area.

If you want ice cream without paying very high boardwalk prices, this is the place to go. Over 20 flavors of ice cream, water ice, soft serve cones, cups, and dishes. Nothing fancy, but a popular local place.

The fresh belgium waffle with ice cream and toppings on top was a great nightcap. It took 4 of us to finish it, so come with an appetite. The waffle was great. Hot off the grill. The soft serve is the best in the area. And toppings make it even more decadent.

I live in Ventnor full time and we look forward to their opening each spring. We are regulars and there about 3-5 times per week. They have great soft serve, ice cream & water ice. They have the most water ice flavors I have ever seen in an ice cream place. Their whipped fruit is unbelievable! It is awesome and... More

We go here probably once a week during the summer. They have soft and hard ice cream, water ice, gelotti, milk shakes...you name it. They are reasonably priced and the lines move quickly. Get there early if you don't want to stand in line. They have casual seating inside and out.

We always look forward to summer to visit Custards! Never disappoints. Love the servers. Efficient and friendly. Sad to see another season ending. We'll be back next season!
