Called to ask a simple question- “are the sprinkles gluten free”? My son has Celiac and he loves sprinkles on his ice cream. The girl who answered the phone tried to be helpful but I could hear the people in the background who sounded annoyed...at the question. “I don’t’ know”, “just tell them no”. Not very considerate. I will never patronize this business.More

I've been coming to Wildwood all my life and somehow missed out on Duffers ice cream until now. This was the best homemade ice cream I've ever had! Need to come back and try every flavor. Parking is very limited but definitely worth the trip!!!!

First time to Duffers... I know, crazy right?! Great outdoor space under a tent. My family of 4 was seated at a large picnic table where we had an excellent dinner. My husband ran across the street to the store as this is a BYO....Felt the tables were socially distant and employees all wore masks. The desserts are to die for... and after dinner we played a few games in the arcade and a round of mini golfMore

Let me start by saying...we LOVE Duffers!! Again...different setting due to Covid. Table for 9. Great tent now in the parking lot. Food was terrific as usual! Picnic tables are wrapped in plastic sheeting for easy clean up. Menus are disposable placemats, so only used...once. Service was great! Absolutely will return, as we always do!! 👍👍More

One of my favorite stops we made in Wildwood. Friendly and unique atmosphere. I like the large hanging plants, face water fountain, and toy train going around the dining room. The menu was large and the food was delicious. Plenty of ice cream options as...well and they are large portions. Perfect place to go after burning tons of calories on the beach. :)More

We went to Duffers and took advantage of the outdoor seating due to COVID-19. The seating area was super nice and spacious, and the staff was wonderful. Not to mention the food was out of this world! Definitely try the fried pickles! Can’t wait to...go again!More

My son and I had a wonderful dinner and ice cream recently. The server and hostess were very friendly. In the past we’ve also played mini golf and the arcade. This is a nice place for families.

I don't think they take reservations. It can get busy quick though.

Best to call them, perhaps they will close off to the general public if you call well in advance.
