Located directly across from Seven Presidents Beach, this establishment has been here for decades. Reasonably priced. I had the Oreo ice and the peanut butter ice. The Oreo was okay but the peanut butter was awesome. The peanut butter taste better then any ice cream that I've had before. The bonus is it is non-dairy so for those who are lactose intolerant, the ices are a perfect solution.

My sons had the soft serve ice cream's and then dip them in chocolate and peanut butter hardshell respectively. They loved it. After sampling several different ice cream's and ices, my wife also decided on the peanut butter and enjoyed it.

We have been coming here for years and will continue to come here as a respite from the sun and the beach. Total for four people was $12.50.

Strollo's Lighthouse is the best looking Italian Ice place I’ve seen. They have an awesome selection of ice flavors from soft serve machines including the traditional vanilla & chocolate soft ice cream twist. We stopped by today and my wife ordered a V&C twist and I tried the vanilla ice cream and orange ice combo. What a great tasting lunch treat; cold & refreshing on a warm day. Just don’t eat the ice too fast like I did. Brain Freeze!!!

Best Italian ices around and great ice cream. You may have to wait in a loooooong line, but it's worth it!

If you are in the Long Branch area, you got to stop by Strollo's The Lighthouse for an Italian ice! An area tradition for 39 years although I think they've been around longer. They started as a tiny store with three flavors of ice up the street from where they are now and with loads of new flavors like cantelope, root beer, pistachio, chocolate, vanilla and peanut butter, they are a hit of the shore! A typical squeeze cup of ice is $2.75 and you can get up to 4 flavors stuffed into it. They also serve ice cream, floats, Rook coffee and make sundaes. Combine some of your favorite flavors: mix root beer ice with vanilla ice cream; orange ice with vanilla ice cream; or even peanut butter ice with chocolate ice cream. I got the traditional cherry, lemon and orange--the three flavors they started their business with. I am a fan of the blue raspberry also. The orange is a nice subtle flavor that doesn't overpower. The lemon is just tangy enough. There's enough in the squeeze cup to give you refreshing deliciousness on a hot summer night. Look for the lighthouse across from 7 President's Park and go!!! You won't be disappointed.
