Great ice cream, they have the normal selection and monthly specials. You can also buy in quarts and they will even hand pack one if it's not in the display cooler.

Service was great


WONDERFUL HARD SCOOP ICE CREAM! Ice cream was delicious and huge serving for the price. appeared to be seating upstairs but it was nice enough to sit outside

James Ranger

Great flavors and great service.

I.S. Batchmann

Better than Baskin-Robbins by a long shot!

Jay Campbell

Great ice cream, sometimes the line can get pretty long, but usually worth the wait

Leah Formby Johnson

This place is always packed, but the line moves quickly! With fun ice cream flavors and a Pokestop right outside, this is a great kid-friendly stop on your walk through Helena's historic walking mall!

Multistrada 1100S

Coffee and salted caramel are great tasting treats!

Mary Mogel

Christopher Norris

Susan B

My kids love this place!

Johanna Burgess

Terrible place. Should have just gone to McDonald's for ice cream instead. No options for flavors and even the flavors they do have are awful. Never again.

Jake&Des Lee

Love how late it's open!! But the line can wrap around the corner when it's busy. They have all kinds of flavors like black liquorice, coffee, birthday cake, and sorbets. And you can make them into shakes or sundaes :) There's a place to sit upstairs as well, and they have a water cooler for guests.

Pam K

Excellent ice cream. So many flavors to try. I just keep going back over and over. The owners are awesome.

Robert Sears

Good service AND good ice cream

mohammed hashim

Very nice place. Friendly staff.. many flavors.. there's a nice outdoor bench to sit on.

Cody Boren

Full disclose...I am a slave to all things ice cream. I just finished a great meal and was looking for something sweet and this place popped up. Any chance you get to eat homemade artisan ice cream, stop whatever you are doing and get some. This is that kind of place. Simple flavors done right. I got maple walnut. Dreamy good with a just soft enough consistency. Outstanding way to cap off the day!

Derek Plautz

Neat little shop

James QP

Really delicious ice cream and ice-cream-containing products! Service is friendly. Only a few tables inside. Somehow, there can even be a line after lunch/dinner in the winter - shows how popular it is!

Scott Soltis

For my money this is the best ice cream in town.

Hannah Ekness

Kevin Buehler

This is some of the best ice cream you will find. They have a lot to choose from and always have some specials. The prices are pretty good and the staff is always friendly. Usually a little bit of a line because they are sooooooooooo good! Definitely stop in if you are in the area.

Starsha Frederickson

It is a great Montana staple. So glad we have one in Helena. My kids each have their own flavor they love from chocolate to salted caramel to peanut butter. My husband likes the shakes and I get to enjoy the dairy free options.

Shylo McKinsey

We live out of town (and coincidentally have our own Big Dipper) but love coming to Helena's when we we come to visit family. Their selection is unique and always gull if surprises. The ice cream is flavorful, full of toppings (if you so choosethose particular flavors) and the staff is extremely friendly, always in good moods and have great senses of humor. Tonight I had the Yellow Cake and White Chocolate Oreo in a waffle cone which was still warm. Big thumbs up all around.

Megan Malkin

Family hub year round, always fun new flavors! My favorites are Green Tea+Maple Nut!

Thaddeus Dugdale

Great service, great selection, great tasting. If you're looking for anything ice cream you can't go wrong with these guys. They have excellent hard serve ice cream that's creamy, rich, and smooth. If you're looking for something different try one of their spins.

Great icecream waffle cone

Crystal Warsinski

Wonderful staff on a hot evening. My ice cream melted way too fast though.

Admiral King BlakeB420smokin

Taste great but they got rid of the large size for milkshakes and still charged me full price for one. $7 for a shake and a banana for my kid is ridiculous

Peter Sunden

Tasty ice cream smack in the middle of action in Montana's capitol. Some very unique flavor options and specials. Be prepared for a long cue during popular times.

Emily Arden

A Helena staple with ice cream flavors ranging from traditional to downright funky. Definitely worth a stop while enjoying downtown Helena.

Jo Grossman

Best ice cream in Helena. The owner is a very sweet person.

Ron Flewellen

Great ice cream had to try the banana huckleberry milkshake and it did not disappoint. Pricing about right not cheap but neither was the serving. Long line a very popular place to go but went fairly quickly. Friendly service.

Montana owned and operated and these guys are in tune with their community. The ice cream is super tasty.

What's not to like? Don't let the line scare you, half the fun of going there is watching the speed of the ice cream jockeys in action. ☺

Jenny Flory

Awesome little ice cream parlor


Good ice cream and nice service.


Greatest bubble gum Ice cream

Benjamin Goldinger

Best ice cream in Helena, great seasonal flavors!

Jay Miller

Great ice cream, great portions. It's not an inexpensive scoop of ice cream, but at least they give you a very healthy sized scoop for the price and it is Rich and creamy like good ice cream should be.

Matt Kuntz

Always great!

Lauren Abbenante

This place will get you in trouble! If you don't see your flavor that you love they will put you on a list and give you a call when your flavor comes in!

Jamie Severson

Best ice cream in town! The downtown atmosphere is great and they always have a friendly, smiley staff. I love the white mint Oreo.

Michele M

Excellent ice cream and unique flavors. Very friendly staff.

Kris Fedro

I beg of you, try the Yellow Cake with chocolate ganache. OMG. Best ice cream ever. My only complaint is that we don't live next door, but that would not be good for my waistline.


Good ice cream, needs more of the mixed in bits. For example, the vanilla and Reese's needs a lot more Reese's.

Kim Hicks

Excellent service and the same goes for their ice cream...just go, and U will be as happy as a 10 yr old...Enjoy..!

Scott D

Very good ice cream. Great location

Grace Johnson

Love the friendly staff. So many wonderful homemade flavors. Good cost for the portions. And offers their flavors in To-do pints.

Richard Dorsch

If it's real icecream you want, this is the place to go. Flavors galore, priced right and sized right. You will love the icecream and the people behind the counter .


Very friendly staff. Good quality ice cream. The line was out the door but it moved quickly.

Stephanie Burcusa

I love this place and will always go out of my way to get an ice cream cone here when I'm in Helena! Excellent range of choices, friendly staff, and fun people watching out the front windows of the shop. A gem!

Jessica Frazier

Their ice cream is homemade and delicious! They offer a great variety of flavors and offer specials.

Stephen Moss

We make a point of stopping here every time we are in Helena. They have some very unique flavors that should definitely be tried even if they don't sound like they would go in ice cream. I had the coconut lemon curry, and the kids liked it so well that we had to go back for more the next day before we left town.

Wyatt Reinhardt

Staff was polite and helpful. The establishment was very clean. The ice cream was delicious!

Denise Moeller

Let's see....I call in my order of 4-5 quarts of the best ice cream ever and then drive home. I now have a freezer full of delicious ice cream to last me a few weeks.

S T Pearson

The ice cream in this place is some of the best in the United States. If you want some ice cream in a great location, particularly during the summer, come here and eat some as you stroll the mall.

I love their daily selection of ice cream. They are always different and use real ingredients. I just had their gingerbread ice cream. It was delicious. If you have never had their ice cream you need to stop here. During the summer expect large lines due to the popularity of the place.

Sharon Gates

Amazing homemade ice cream! If you want a nice treat go here you will enjoy it!

Goddess Pharah

I love coming here for icecream especially because it is not overpriced

Dennis Chenoweth

We shared a huckleberry cup. We haven't had any better.

Jessica Detlor

Amazing ice cream, possibly some of the best I've ever had. the matcha/green tea ice cream was amazing, as is their black licorice ice cream! I've always loved their sorbet specials as well, though sometimes they taste a little too sweet!

Terry Althoff

Great ice-cream

Rich Harris

Best I've cream in Montana!

Mike Santy

Great ice cream! Great service! Very busy! Fast! Crowded! Go early afternoon to avoid the crowds. In addition to a wide selection of flavors, they always have 3 new flavors that seem to change daily. Quality isn't cheap, and they ask for a tip, but they serve like fast food.

Tony Aponte

The ice cream is really good. Love the different assortments of flavors.

Freddie Maw IV

If though Love Tangerines, the Tangerine Sorbet is to die for. Recommended by William Graham during the recent BIG Sky Celebration, tried it for the first time and fell in love.

Anthony Freeman

Top notch ice cream with lots of great flavors and topping options. Make it a Sunday or a shake for just a little more. I do wish you could see the ice cream before ordering, it’s a little thing that doesn’t really matter, but it’s sort of a tradition I like

Bridget Walker

love big dipper! the ice cream and people are always amazing. the only downside is when it’s nice out the likes tend to be longer- but worth the wait!

Janeen Caffrey

YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY!!! Love going there. Fun place to take people in town visiting.

Paul Andersen

Great ice cream and friendly fun atmosphere. Always fun place to visit to get a cone, bowl, shake or sundae.

Tommy Le

Very cozy and great service!

Logan Laity

Very nice the service was great and the staff was friendly. Awesome ice-cream (my fav. is the bubblegum) and the only room for improvement is the space, it does feel cramped.

heidi hohmann

Best homemade authentic ice cream in Helena. Always very creamy. Love the seasonal flavors! Staff is awesome. Great location. Expect a wait during warmer days :)

Sean Gilman

Always busy during the summer, very good ice cream.

Joshua Clement

Good ice cream with unique variety.

Lauren Stanberry

I'm lactose intolerant (which sucks when you're craving something sweet) but the big dipper had some lactose free options which was nice. Their sorbets are very tasty.

Lucas Salminen

It was so hot in Helena and were seeking out an ice cream shop in town. We were told this place came highly recommend and it did not disappoint. Nobody in our group had anything to say about their ice cream treats. Everything was so tasty!

Terry Moffit

Need to stop and get some hackberry ice cream


Best ice cream in Helena! Locally made and always a great variety of flavors.

Great ice cream for a stop through town. A must stop place for people passing by. Going there has become frequent for my family.

Morgan Marks

Some of the best ice cream I have ever had with some incredibly unique and awesome flavors! Love this small town shop and the kind service - always have a friendly face scooping. Highly recommend!

Chris Rockett

Loved this ice cream! I tried huckleberry flavor, trying to get something more or less local. The texture was the best part - so smooth and creamy.

Lucinda Leon


Susan Wood

Yummy ice cream. Very creative flavors!

Mary Anne Brown

Best black licorice ice cream ever!!!

Alex Gonzalez

Great service and good icecream. Thank you to the young lady that steered us to the souvenir stores. Much appreciated!


Good ice cream at a good price

Sheryl Zygmond

Great staff friendly and clean

Becca Averill

The best ice cream, fast service, and supporting local business. Can't go wrong.

Nikolas Robinson

The prices aren't bad at all and the selection of flavors is a good one. I tried both the bubblegum ice cream and the tangerine sorbet and they were both delicious. The closest I could think of as far as complaints are concerned would be that there were no chunks of actual bubblegum in the ice cream like I prefer...but that didn't diminish the flavor.

Pästël Pästä

Great ice cream.

Dayne Roberts

Great ice cream and friendly staff always!

Vinnessa Lundstrom

Wasn't impressed with the flavor of the ice cream, the servings were big and the staff was nice!

Collin Barth

So good! There was a huge line on a Saturday night but it moved and a reasonable speed and was so worth the wait! Ordered the Irish whiskey with the chocolate dip!

Darrin Harris

Great staff. Great ice cream.

kim lee

They have doggy cones!

Richard Gayle

Ice scream, you scream! This is a great one cream shop that isn't crazy expensive, we all enjoyed ourselves a lot! Great setting too!
