We had some tie to kill so we stopped in for a dessert before dinner. The 4 of us shared the tabletop Smores. So fun! We were able to get a few more marshmallows too. Yummy treat with extra laughs.

Very very good ice cream served by family owned non-chain ice cream parlor. The prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere in an older refurbished Charles Town building is great. When you are done eating your child can paint pottery in the pottery room. Go here for ice cream.

We love it here. they have wonderful ice cream. They also have a pottery section that has made wonderful mothers day/ fathers day gifts that we truly love. it had a good vibe and they play 80's music. The food is okay, but I don't go there for that.

Unique atmosphere with art and ice cream together, but both are great. Great place to bring the kids for a snack and an activity on a cold or rainy day.

Skippers is an integral part of the Main Street community. Not only do they offer the best ice cream and hot dogs around, but they also have a paint your own pottery studio in the back of the establishment. But don't let that fool you - even the pottery painting area is as neat and tidy as the restaurant area.... More

My kids and I tried three different kinds of ice cream, and all were great. My peach melba was like nothing I've ever had before, and I've eaten LOTS of ice cream! My son had the chocolate cupcake, and also agreed that it was uniquely delicious (and he's also eaten his share of ice cream in his young life!). My... More

It was DELICIOUS!!! I had the chocolate ice cream with brownie chunks in it and it was awesome. I got the kids size which was MORE than enough!! It was so creamy and rich, but not too rich. Haven't had ice cream that good in a long time.

Skippers has the best hand dipped ice cream, it has replaced my old favorite Paks. Sorry Paks, your prices have gotten ridiculous! I'm giving a rating of very good, because I've only been twice and tried 2 flavors. Peach and Raspberry are highly recommended.
