Definitely worth a stop, especially on a sultry summer day or night. Creamy, delicious homemade ice cream in a ton of flavors. Too hard to choose since everything looks & sounds yummy. Great assortment of toppings. Eat outside under an awning. Right on Main Street in the center of Bradley Beach. Love the hot fudge!!!

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

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!
