As tourist in LBI I had one shot on the skipper dipper experience. But they decided this night to close early, because of expected storms, while there weren't any yet... So the complete crew walked out with loads of ice creams themselves, and we couldn't walk in. Laughing that we could come back another day, while eating themselves the ice... More

One night I arrived home from a vacation out of the country and decided to stop at Skipper Dipper on my way home for a late night snack. It was 11:15 on a July weeknight and the line was around the corner. I didn't choose to stop but it shouldn't stop you...the servers actually come out and go down the... More

Compared to Ben & Jerry's & Scoop City, Skipper Dipper is the winner in our books! They are quite efficient at getting the hoards of customers through the shop, often getting your order in your hands before you even get to the register! The varieties are plentiful and the staff (all teenagers) are happy to serve. We liked Skipper Dipper... More

Finally made it here after being local for more than ten years. Specifically wanted to try the dole pineapple soft serve and coconut soft serve. They did not disappoint. Delicious! Kid servings were a little more than $3, but it was a generous serving about two scoops. By the time we got our ice cream the line was out the... More

We frequently walk to Skipper Dippers for delicious ice cream cones and sundaes. Sometimes the line is very long but don't be put off....kids come and take your order and then you get to go to jump to the front of the line, pay and get your ice cream!

We discovered Skipper Dipper on our first visit to LBI 6 years ago, and now it's a required stop every summer. I've been an ice cream lover since I was a kid and have a pretty sophisticated ice cream palate. Skipper Dipper absolutely holds its own against much more expensive, boutique ice cream I've eaten in New England. There are... More

Every 10 punches on the card gets you a free ice cream. Also, good for 24 plus flavors of soft ice cream, instead of the usual vanilla or chocolate.

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.
