Captain Sundae is a local must stop on the way to or from the beach, or just for great ice cream. Many great sundaes. Known for their "Tommy Turtle".

Captain Sundae employs High School age kids which is makes it a favorite of ours. The ice cream is very good! It is creamy and rich. The variety is wonderful. The whip topping is to die for!! Love the Scottish Captain and Captain Coconut! The ice cream is so good sometimes we have just a plain sundae with whip topping.... More

The ice cream was good and the service was good. The best Turtle in the world. And all the other ice cream creations are also the best.

On your way home from a lazy day at Lake Michigan? Stop here. In the mood for an afternoon snack? Go to Captain Sundae's. One of the best ice cream places when it comes to handling food allergies. Lots of options, something for everyone.

It is a quintessential small-town sundae shop with every variety of ice-cream treats you can imagine.
