Nice portions at Good Prices

I had a large hot fudge sundae and couldn't believe all ice cream I got with it. My daughter was upset when I told her she had to get a small flurry. But, she couldn't even finish it. Would highly recommend.

Stopped by on a whim, glad we did. It's,a bit,off the beaten path. Ice cream was good, portions were fair and off we went. Interesting history of area on the walls for your reading enjoyment. Not sure if we will stop back this summer but this is a good choice.

We live right down the road and make this our special summer place. We use it as a reward system for our son and needless to say he is on his best behavior all summer. The variety of ice cream treats is great and prices are more than reasonable for what you get. We haven't done the food but have... More

The kids can't wait until The Village Dipper opens in the spring. Great place to go and enjoy an ice cream treat. They have food, too, but we have never tried it. Like that we can sit inside (kids love the tractor seats at the "bar"). Great place!! Very friendly owners and staff!!

My home village. Great friendly atmosphere and great gathering place where the ice cream is always plentiful and good food is a given. Come join the locals and read about the history of Drenthe and it's ancestors.

I went to the Village Dipper for the first time the other night and was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was cute, clean, old-fashioned and homey, the girls behind the counter were extremely pleasant, and the servings of ice cream were generous. It was clearly a favorite place among the locals. A very good experience, and I will certainly return.

My whole family went to the Dippper last night to celebrate my sisters birthday and we ate dinner and ice cream there. We kinda had to eat in shifts because we had a large group but the food tasted great and we had really good service. We live close by and having been going every summer since they opened:)

Everything was great. Everyone enjoyed their sandwiches, fries and salads. Food was freshly prepared and tasty. Very reasonable. Fed 7 for $30. Then we got the desserts. Everyone LOVED the desserts. Too many things to chose from. We will have to come back.
