“The Best”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

You absolutely can NOT beat Springer's Ice Cream!

Yes, the lines are usually long, and the prices are a bit high BUT that shouldn't keep you away from stopping.

Even though the evenings typically have a long line, Springers has been open such a long time that they have a well oiled machine. Their employees are very efficient and know how to keep the line moving fast. If you want to avoid the lines, come in the afternoon when everyone is at the beach instead. We've done this several times if we need our fix for the day.

How many places that truly make homemade ice cream have prices any different than Springers? If you go to a real ice cream shop, the price will actually be pretty comparable. If price is an issue and you are somewhat of an adventurous person, try out the potpourri flavor. It's cheaper and you never know what flavors you are going to get!

You cant beat how good their ice cream is! The only disappointment you'll have is eating other ice cream when you aren't able to make it here :)

“Good, but not always worth the wait”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Springers is famous at the Jersey Shore and has been a family run operation for many years. The only problem is that now it is so popular that you have to wait in a very long line if you want ice cream in June through Labor Day. It's delicious for sure, with a billion flavors. There are other options now in Stone Harbor if you want to avoid the wait.

“excellent ice cream”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

Excellent ice cream for a refreshing evening after a day at the beach. Located right near shopping. The lines can be very long, but they keep moving. So many flavors to try!!!

“Brave the lines for really good ice cream”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Don't be put off by the lines on a hot summer night. They move fast and lead you to fresh ice cream in a large variety of favors. I like the chocolate marshmallow with real marshmallows. Yummy!
