Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited the Big Dipper after our tour guide recommended stopping. It was busy, which is a good sign. They only allowed 5 people in the shop at one time - a nice touch. The service was very fast and the line we were in went quickly, even though we were all the way back across the street/walkway. We ordered a variety of flavors, but the huckleberry was the best - definitely recommend trying that flavor. The only downside was the location. It is in the “walking “ part of Last Chance Gulch, but cars could enter and exit a parking garage right where the line formed. We have to make space for cars pretty regularly. But, everyone seemed polite and just one of those “it is what it is” situations. Despite the parking garage issue, would still recommend. They do have an order ahead of time feature on their website but not sure how that would work since in the current climate with only allowing 5 people in the store.

My wife and I stopped here after dinner. There appeared to be a long line but it’s not as long as it looks as there’s very little space to stand in line in the store. We only stood in line for five minutes. I had a huckleberry milkshake that was excellent. My wife raved about her ice cream. Highly recommended.

We walked down from the Windbag for a light treat. I got the lemon sorbet. Others got cookies and crème, huckleberry. & El Salvador coffee. My favorite was the Mexican chocolate.

Cons: Location hard to find Homeless scattered all around outside of building Upstairs seating deceptive before ascending - very small and limited space Pros: Tasty and creamy ice cream Very friendly staff Menu had good selection - classics like vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, regional like huckleberry, fun like salted caramel etc… I would visit again when in the area, now that I found the location.

I had a big bowl of dairy free ice cream every day during our vacation. I rarely get to join my family in eating ice cream, so this was such a treat!!!!!

After our walk, we entered at the Big Dipper Ice Cream. We ordered our ice-cream and they brought our ice-cream to our table. They were very friendly. It was delicious! Worthwhile to try!

One of the Walking Mall's Destination Spots. The ice cream is fabulous. My favorite is Sea Salt Caramel, but all of the flavors are outstanding. Friendly staff and the line (which sometimes appears long as it winds out the doorway) moves quickly.

In Helena for work recently and stop by Big Dipper for a couple of scoops of salted caramel ice cream. Always fast and efficient service. The ice cream is absolutely wonderful. Reasonably priced and so delicious. No matter what season; you have to try Big Dipper Ice Cream!

On valentines day my fiance and I went into this business they were pretty busy but they got to use in a timely fashion. Once we got to the counter the girl behind it was very positive and happily served us. I highly recommend going here
