Love it Love it love it. It's like Fast and the furious clashes with Ice cream shop. And crowds like the ocean, once minute it's high tide and lines down the street and minute later like a solo surfer waiting for the next big wave with no one in site. Plain and simple the ice cream is awesome, we go... More

The ice cream is perfect! The staff are really friendly and the price is great. Even if u get a kiddie cup, there is a lot of ice cream. I do recommend you guys to come in the afternoon. In the night, there is a REALLY long line.

I have been coming to skipper dipper for the last 35 years. The ice cream is always fresh and creamy and the portions are generous. They always seem to have some new , delicious concoction to try. The line to get in may be intimidating but it does move fairly quickly and it is truly worth the wait.

Delicious ice cream. Generous portions. The staff is efficient and friendly. We visit this place every time we're in LBI. Bright, clean, cheery. Peanut butter chocolate is excellent. Death by Chocolate is the best!

I thanked the ice cream gods every day for putting this place in the middle of Beach Haven on LBI. The long lines (which move quickly) are a testament to the great ice cream that they serve from soft serve to scoops and in many different flavors. The discovery that you could get soft serve on top of a scoop... More

Very popular usually long lines good ice cream. Don't miss. We went 3 times during our week long stay. Punch cards good idea. I think Java chunk did prevent a good night sleep. Toasted coconut was a favorite of some family members

Recently found out that on top of the exceptional selection of quality ice cream, they now offer dairy free selections! This made my day! It is very hard to find dairy free ice cream, and when you do, it is assumed that the traditional ice cream quality is lacking. That is NOT the case here. TRULY some of the best... More

Love this ice cream place! We have been going to the Skipper Dipper for over 20 years! Lots of different flavors, soft and hard ice cream too. The staff is very efficient. Don't let the long line fool you, the staff comes outside to start your order. Even places to sit outside. The quality of ice cream is delicious! Ask... More

Everyone gets their choice of flavor and toppings here!!! Perfect delight on a summer evening at the beach. If it's possible to top the ice cream flavors and store experience, it's definitely their tmeporary Skipper Dipper tattoo. The kids love them and they really stay on and are quite cute!!!
