Always go with the grandkids. More flavors than you can imagine. The soft ice cream is delish also. The size of the servings are very generous. Can personally recommend the seasonal flavors like peach as well as the pralines and creme and coffee brownie. Soft...More

Disappointing to see how dirty this place is on a regular basis. Great ice cream and good portions, but the building is not maintained and everything is just dirty. Doesn't help when customers bring their dogs INSIDE and stay inside to eat their ice cream!...More

It's homemade ice cream and the taste proves it. A great selection of flavors, toppings, floats, shakes, etc... A summer staple is Hoffman's Ice Cream! Only downfall is the line at nights and on the weekends (especially in the summer).

Although there was a very long wait, the ice cream is Great! It seems as though this is a locals favorite. I've been to this area before but never stopped for ice cream. This will definitely be stop we make from now on

Great homemade Ice Cream - If it's a hot day be prepared to wait on a long line, it draws quite the crowd!

For many years we have gone to Hoffmans and it never fails to disappoint. The ice cream is fantastically creamy. The vanilla is about the best I've ever had. But the butter pecan is my favorite. It literally tastes like ice cream butter with pecans...More
