Best ice cream on the island. You will stand in line but it is worth the wait. The line moves quickly and they are very organized and efficient.

Skipper Dipper has great ice cream and friendly service. The line is out the door which shows how popular it is. But don't worry about waiting in line too long, the line moves very quickly. Great flavors and always served with a smile!

Very good ice cream, wide selection. But the wait is just too long during the evening rush. Go during the day. Otherwise, many other options on the island to satisfy your sweet tooth.

The Skipper Dipper has hard and soft ice creams. The list of flavors is vast and the choices of cones and toppings to add is just as many. From traditional flavors to fruity and eccentric this ice cream parlor is a delicious addition to your summer time lists of places to visit

This is my favorite ice cream place around. They are usually packed but they have a organized system to get you through the line very quickly. They have so many options for anyone's taste buds. If you see the line is down the street don't turn away. The pricing is reasonable and the servings are huge.

I stopped here w the boys after a day at the beach and we were not disappointed. They have a ton of options, hard and soft serve, and plenty of toppings. My fav part, since I can't have dairy, is that they have some lactose free ice cream (soy based). I actually got to enjoy a hot fudge sunday for... More

I took my grandchildren here. The line wrapped around the building so that should tell you something! They were very organized so the line moved quickly. You need the wait time to decide which of the wonderful choices to pick! The servings are gigantic - the kids couldn't even finish it all!
