Went for dessert and wasn't disappointed. Menu wasn't as extensive as website indicated but that may be due to after Labor Day and Covid. They don't offer to go containers (no lids)and had to put wax paper over ice cream. Portions are way too large...and 2 people could share.More

Went there just before closing time. No outdoor dining...I guess due to Covid? Can eat in parking lot by your car though. Ice cream was phenomenal, as usual! Unfortunately my son got a long piece of hair in his cup. Knocked on the window as...they had already closed and the lights were out. The girl was kind enough to open up and get him another cup! And he totally enjoyed it! Wish I would've remembered to take pix...but here's mine...half eaten! Delicious!! Definitely make this a stop if you're in Wildwood!More

Been coming to Sea Shell since I was a child. Up until a year or so ago there was parking in front of Sea Shell and across the street at the Sunshine Motel. So we parked as we have many times in the past. Well...the owners of Sunshine blocked our car in and made us pay $10 for taking up a spot (10 mins Max) and say that we are costing them business. Now in fairness there are two small signs that say Sunshine guests only. And I explained it was my fault not seeing sign but previously it was Sea Shell parking. And three members of the family of the owner came out arguing and saying we owed $10 (completely arbitrary number) and they took a space with their own car to purposely block us! And I even paid the $10 bc I felt I was in the wrong and they were still arguing! Sorry Sea Shell, but you may have lost a customer due to rude neighbors.More

Summer will (finally) be upon us. Heaven in a scoop of Peanut Butter 'n Chocolate Ice Cream. This sea shell ice cream heaven was over the over-the-top and set the bar pretty high for the rest of Wildwood's ice cream parlors. Magically creamy and smooth...milk chocolate ice cream, swirled with yummy chunks of thick peanut butter, and crunchy wafers. There is good, there is better, and there is Sea Shell Ice Cream Parlor!More

Loved my lemon-lime sherbet on a cone that I had yesterday, I asked for one scoop and it was huge and delicious ( it was hard to finish it all!). My daughter had her usual vanilla with sprinkles and my husband had strawberry cheesecake,all of...them sooo good and the service was great and fast even with the huge clientele they have!More

My and my friends went expecting a small ice cream shack where they hand out tiny scoops and called it a large. The one scoop that we got was huge! The flavor was amazing! It has indoor and outdoor seating, and you can sample it!...100% will eat there again!More

CASH ONLY. They do have a bathroom. 4$ for one scoop, but that one scoop will feed four kids!!!!!!!!!!!!! They were willing to split up my one scoop into four bowls. Very kind.

The choices are amazing! Interesting and full of flavor. We're used to some pretty good, grass fed local ice cream....I'd have to say, this was even better. The scoops are HUGE. Be sure to get either a bowl or a waffle cone, because the little...pointy cones just look wrong trying to hold up such a bowlful of a scoop. The outside picnic tables were clean, and the inside seating looked like a cool cafe you'd like to be in. We tried the double chocolate, the cotton candy, the black raspberry and the espresso chip. I recommend tasting a couple new flavors before you choose: the coconut was also delicious. Very reasonably priced for the quality and quantity.More
