We travel all the way from North Beach to get ice cream here. Recommended. There are often lines but they are well organized and you won't wait for long.

Every year since before I can remember we have made The Skipper Dipper a part of our LBI vacation. The ice cream is great and the service is always friendly. Don't be afraid of the line...it moves quickly.

Yes, they've been around for 38 years and there's a reason. Great service, great ice cream, and just the best place to go after dinner for a sweet treat with the family. Hit it at the right time and the line won't be too long... But fret not for if it is, they know how to move it quickly and... More

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.
