This place is incredible! They have great prices for what you get. Most ice cream shops give small portions for big cost- Skipper Dipper- big ice cream with a very reasonable price. They have so many flavors and change things up. A definite stop on your visit! you will not be disappointed.

This place is a must stop when your on the island. There is always a line but it's worth the wait. They are also open late. The business has been here for over 40 years and the ice cream is amazing. Shakes are very good. I recommend the black and white shake. It is a perfect blend and is not... More

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

Rutgerth — We’re terribly sorry you missed us on your trip from the Netherlands! The safety of our young staff is of paramount concern to us, and if Doppler radar indicates that a particularly bad weather front is across the bay heading towards the island, we will close the shop out of a precaution of safety: we don’t want to...

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.
