“Soooo CUTE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

I took my three kids here today for the first time and WOW! We fell in love with the place right away! We have drove by a thousand times and never stopped by. After today we will be back for sure. The Dipper was clean with great employees and great food....

“Fantastic place to take your family and enjoy some great food & ice cream at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2009

The Drenthe Village Dipper is a wonderful setting in the country. They now have a bike path that ends at their shop, which gives you a reason to ride your bike. The restaurant is clean and has excellent food and great ice cream desserts. Take a step back in time and learn more about Drenthe when it was a booming town and possible meet someone you haven't seen in a long time??
Staff is very friendly and will take good care of you.
Keep up the good work Village Dippers!!

“Our grandkids love the Dipper!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2008

Whenever we ask our grandkids where they would like to go for ice cream or even for dinner - it's always the Dipper! And.........we love it too! Doreen and her crew are always friendly and so welcoming to all. It's a great place to meet old and many new friends! We really appreciate the Dipper!

“Can hardly wait until it opens in the Spring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2008

This is a wonderful place to come to. It's in the country. It's a touch of past meets present.

Old friends and new ones find eachother. They are open from April -October and when April come around everyone in the area watches her sign for when she will again open for business. It is not Spring until The Dipper is open!

This is a great place to eat inside or take your food outside to the huge porch.

The food is great, She is constantly adding new ideas. Those that work there are very friendly!

You will not be disappointed!!!

“A wonderful place to eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2008

The Village Dipper is a wonderful place to eat! They have Hudsonville ice cream and yummy sandwiches. The restaurant is exceptionally clean and those that work there are enjoyable. I would highly recommend this as a fun stop in the land of nostalgia. The Dipper has wood floors and cute old-time ice cream shop tables.
