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

We've been going to the Skipper Dipper for over a decade and we've never been disappointed. The ice cream is fresh, there's tons of tasty varieties and combinations, and their service is IMPECCABLE. Don't be daunted by the long lines. They always have TONS of staff running up and down the queue to make sure your orders are taken and... More

Not located in Beach Haven and doesn't serve food so how this place rates as the number 1 restaurant in Beach Haven escapes me. Very good ice cream place and definitely worth visiting but recognize it for what it is, which is a carry out ice cream shop.

I have been going to Skipper Dipper for 25 years. They have flavors nobody else has, and the ice cream cakes are to die for. Can't imaging going anywhere else. You won't be disappointed!

We visit Skipper Dipper at least two times each time we visit LBI. It's definitely a family favorite!
