I stop at Big Dipper almost once every two weeks. They have a constantly changing set of flavors, 5 or so new flavors and the 10-15 standards. The service is always great (well almost always). If I had a line of 40 people waiting for me, I might get a little hurried at times. They have a great product, a... More

Big decision what flavored to get and had to get the double cone. Decided on the coconut and huckleberry. Very natural tasting and very creamy. We are ice cream lovers and boy did this hit the spot after dinner. We came just in time before the line started getting quite long. Our last night here in Missoula and had to... More

This place is always busy it seems, even when its snowing out there still could be a line of people standing in line outside waiting to get some Big Dipper ice cream - because that's how amazing it is. They are always changing their special flavors and have a variety of local favorites that they have on hand at all... More

Creamy and delicious, there were interesting flavours to choose. We arrived before a crowd and line up, which was pure luck. We had very friendly service, including samples before making our selections. Cones were generous and seemed to be made from wholesome and natural fresh ingredients.We didn't notice that there are daily specials, which sounded very enticing. Would like to... More

We heard about this place by some locals and found that it had been reviewed by a national TV morning show. We thought we should give it a try and were very glad we did! The ice cream is all made on-site and using their own recipes. I got the mexican chocolate which was so good with that hint of... More

Yummy homemade ice cream. Try a different flavor and you will not be disappointed. No long lines when we stopped by so don't let that stop you from trying this place if you like ice cream.

Half the fun is going here and standing in the line after dinner, people & ice cream watching all the flavors go by, hmmm wonder what that flavor is?! The ice cream is handmade, very creative, always delicious with consistent long lines, we love the different seasonal tastes and enjoying with family on the outdoor benches.

Yes, the ice cream is good and the service is with a smile, but why all the hype? It is ice cream from a local business so at least 3 stars -- so if you want to support a local business , go here.
