Great variety of ice cream delights. All of it is good and the place is usually busy. It is a seasonal operation. If the lines are long, it is still worth the wait!

Icecream, always good, nothing bad to mention. Whippy Dip is unaffordable if you have 3 grand kids a wife and your self. This visit cost a bit more then $32.00 for 5 cones. Don't understand the long lines at these prices. Plenty of parking though.

This is nice a mom & pops version of a Dairy Queen. A nice place to get a basic meal and has very good ice cream desserts! We eat at this place a few times during our week stays!

We stopped by at this place several times while in the area. It's always pretty popular, with an outdoor seating area for enjoying your purchases. Flurries, Malts, sundaes and soft serve ice creams are all great.

I've been to whippy dip several times over the past few years when visiting the area. They have a classic selection of ice cream and flurries plus fast food like hamburgers, hot dogs and sandwiches. Be prepared for a nap after even the small flurries!...More

Classic ice cream and food place with two window and nearly always a line of people in the summer. Nothing particularly special about it - other than the location and easy parking. Yet we go back over and over!
