Yummy

There are plenty of places to get ice cream on Anna Maria Island and Dips is right up there with the best. It's tiny so don't plan to linger. But expect to have some creamy goodness to refresh you.

First off, you must know that Dips only takes cash. This fact is posted no where in the shop. We went through the line got our cones and were then told, "We are a cash only business." They'll then direct you to an ATM at a bar a few businesses down, that will charge you $4 for taking out money.... More

Can I repeat. ..Lousy Customer service! Went on a slow night but the clerk was more interested in watching tv than in helping us. Didn't want to tell us what the flavors were and seemed to want us to hurry and leave. Don't go! Go instead to Holy Cow at Holmes Beach. Owners are very nice there. Plus the have... More

Love the coconut ice-cream. They also have other treats for the kids. Cute place and fun to spend some time. Great ice-cream!

The line up is your first clue this spot is going to be good. Real ice cream, fast and friendly service. Definitely a place to go back to. Try captain butterscotch.

The service was excellent, Justin was friendly and exceptionally helpful. You certainly get your money's worth. We probably ate them out of hot brownie sundaes! A must!

A huge selection of ice cream and a very friendly staff who are more than willing to give you lots of samples so you can make up your mind :) A definite treat--delicious ice cream.

Have been going to Dips every year for the past 10 years and its always as good as ever. There is a wide variety of ice cream choices - my personal favourite is cotton candy- and friendly people serving you. Portions are large and are refreshing on a warm day.

He says he couldn't ask for a better uncle !!! This is a hometown place with great service and to die for... More
