Very pleasant ice cream and sandwich shop in downtown Charles Town. The young folks that are employed here are a testament to the local owner and area. The flavors, especially chocolate insanity, are very good and creamy. The ice cream is sourced from a local dairy farm. I am a local person who usually schedules meetings at Skippers because of...

This restaurant was really colorful and welcoming. The layout, the art area, and their decorating made it feel like a warm, local place that was family friendly. Unfortunately, I did not feel like the staff was very welcoming, though. We had been traveling through the area to visit a friend in Charles Town and stopped by to get ice cream... More

Loved the ice cream here. A single scoop is as large as a double at one of the chains, and all were delicious - so good that we returned a second time.

I wanted to like this place. I love ice cream and so does my family. The atmosphere was cold and not welcoming. The girl scooping ice cream was more interesting in talking to her friend. We were intruding on her time. I would prefer someplace else. Like I said, I wanted to like it.

If you're bopping around Jefferson County for a day, stop by Skippers for one of the best deals around. For $5.30 my husband and I got two cones of delicious ice cream. He had the grasshopper which was really refreshing and full of cookie chunks. I got a peanut butter on top & chocolate on the bottom cone (yes, one... More

My wife and I wanted something refreshing prior to our drive back to DC. The location is on the main "drag" though town with a rather large seating area. I ordered a milkshake and my wife ordered a float. Both were very good for the price point. The girls working there were not the fastest or the most interested but... More

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.
