Fabulous ice cream - huge selection.
Outside seating only.
So good, it’s now available in some local food markets in limited flavors.

Reasonable prices for delicious ice cream! There are about 15 different flavors available at any time. Note that there is no indoor seating, in case you go in the cold autumn like we did. But we sat in our car on this 35-degree day and all loved our ice cream!

Stopped by Big Dipper for a treat after dinner. Large menu, settled on chocolate/vanilla hot fudge sundae. Outstanding!
Came in a nice plastic boat/trough to help keep the ice cream and fudge contained.
Had to share to keep from going into sugar shock coma!

So I must say Big Dipper is worth screaming about! I adore the walk up and order atmosphere. The line can get quite long but everyone respectfully and patiently waits their turn. You are greeted at the window with a friendly face where they work hard to assure you leave a happy customer. The menu offers traditional flavors, specialty flavors, sundaes, shakes, toppings, and even take home packages of your favorite flavors! You can also buy Big Dipper merchandise to show your support even when you're not eating their ice cream. This nostalgic little spot is worth checking out!
