Large selection and generous portions

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.

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.
