By far, the best waffle ice cream cone I have ever had! They prepared the cone right on a waffle press while I waited, and filled it with a Carolina praline ice cream that was exceptional! Highly recommended for any ice cream lover!

After dinner we had a hankering for some ice-cream and found Jack the Dipper. We enjoyed our selections and also our discussions with the young man who waited on us. Very friendly.

Nice selection. Veterans get a discount but what about police, fire and EMT's?? Not fair. That should be adjusted.

The site is nothing to speak of, but the ice cream is fantastic. The only complaint is many flavors were not available. Maybe the place is just too popular.
