Best ice Cream & Customer Service on LBI

We have had ice cream here on several occasion's and each time it is better than before. The selection is great, the prices are fair, each time you get 10 ice creams one is free, and the level of customer service is top notch.

This is a must if you go to LBI. Best ice cream and coke floats. My kids love to go after dinner with friends. The line is long but it goes quick, and the service is great.

The ice cream is delicious and the choice of cone, (several varieties) and toppings are many. The amount of ice cream is huge, so opt for the smaller if you don't want to eat that much.

This place was really highly rated on trip advisor, but it was just another ice cream place to me. It's a nice place for the kids to get a cone, but it could use more options for the lactose challenged.

Skipper Dipper has quite a large selection of homemade ice creams that all are excellent. I am a huge fan of the Nutter Butter ice cream. Staff is very friendly and accomodating as well.

A great place for ice cream on the island. Not a bad wait during the day but loooong lines at night. Worth a visit but may not be your favorite.

My son who is allergic to milk, egg and nuts; finally found a place he can go and order ice cream (in a cone if desired). The soy ice cream is not made there but is available. Mom, Dad & daughter are happy as well, since they can choose from the many flavors, and get some good ice cream.

You will find a line waiting to get into the place. A large variety of flavors, and the servings are generous. You will quickly discover why there was a line.....kri he ice cream with toppings of your choice.

The ice cream was certainly creamy but not much better than anywhere else on the island, and worse than Do Me a Flavor. My milkshake tasted "empty" and my friend said it had a chemical taste, and it really did taste worse after having a bite of the regular ice cream. Nice and quick but I'll go somewhere else for...

The sign and shirts are correct—Skipper Dipper is an LBI Tradition. I have been coming to LBI every year since I was a year old. We own a house on LBI and the Dipper is a MUST every night of our stay. The lines out the door each summer night do not lie. Do not be discouraged by the line... More
