Several trips to Dip Top over the years have always been met with a fantastic selection of ice cream and toppings. The place is staffed by the friendliness workers and it's immaculately clean.

Fantastic Ice Cream! Really good cherry dip too. This is one our favorite places to go when we visit Connecticut. We have always had a good experience here. That why we keep coming back.

Over the years, we've stopped here for a soft serve ice cream treat. Tonight, my friends and I retuned for the first cone of the season. The soft serve is good! The hard ice cream sampled was excellent! On this not-so-busy night, we were treated as though the place was packed--curt and abrupt treatment from the staff, which was off-putting... More

Summer or Winter - always great ice cream. Service is always great. They can handle crowds of little leaguers. It's nice that they have benches to enjoy the cone and not spill it in the car.

Dip Top has been making kids and adults happy for a very long time. We always brought our Little League teams here after the games. The servers are always nice and the ice cream is very good. You can sit outside and enjoy. It is a bit pricy but, the quality is worth the cost. Give it a try next... More

We only got small vanilla soft serve but it was delicious!! They know what they are doing. Next time I might have to try the Boston shake. From what I hear it's a milkshake with a sundae on top. Yum!!

The Dip Top has been a fixture in Town for a very long time. You can depend on: great soft-serve cones with many dip top options, regular ice cream in over a dozen flavors, sundaes, shakes and the like, but not much else. Everybody comes here every year. There's just too much to like.
