Don't be deterred by lines

Skipper Dipper is easily the best ice cream shop on the island. They offer tons of flavors in both hard and soft serve, they have any topping you can imagine, they have special sundaes, and they have variations to your normal ice cream all at a reasonable price!

At night this place has a huge line, but they set it up so that the wait is no longer than a few minutes. They take your order at the door and the person who takes your order fills it. Unusual flavors, great topping selection and fair prices. We went twice in five days.

From the great flavors, to the nice owner and wonderful speedy staff you most come here. You can try before you buy. Free tattoos for the kids and a rewards program. By ten items and the next one is free. Cool! Don't let the line scare you away. It moves quick and they come out to take you order so... More

The line was long but it moved quickly. The servers were friendly and kept things moving. The ice cream was delicious and there were plenty of choices.

This is the place to go on LBI for ice cream. The vanilla peanut butter has been my "go to" since 1978. Staff is very courteous and friendly.

I have been coming here since I was 10 years old in 1978....I can't come to LBI without getting a vanilla peanut butter cone!

I love to stop by Skipper Dipper when I am in LBI. I love the hand mixed soft serve. I get the cheesecake and it is always DELICIOUS!

This has been a neighborhood staple for years. Delicious ice cream, cheery young servers who greet you with a smile and a host of great toppings. However, timing is everything. The lines are staggering at the "dessert hour" which is usually around 7 to 8pm. Its a common cry of the younger set: "can we go to skipper dipper?" And... More

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.
