It's ice cream. Frozen treats. Lotsa options. Mucho gusto. Icee's are on point too. Along with Ell Huarache this is the best spot to stop after a day at the beach.

With 3 locations this is the only one open year round. With summer quickly fading stopped by for treats after some tennis. Everything was really good but especially loved the mint mutiny. I hope it stays permanently on the menu!

If you travel to Holland Michigan, do not miss Captain Sundae, either north or south side location. Tommy turtle Sundae is the best Sundae in America ! While at the Northside location, you can see pictures of presidential candidates and Secret Service who have stopped for ice cream here while campaigning over the years

This place is very popular, so be prepared to wait in line. They have so many different sundae & ice cream choices it's ridiculous. I couldn't tell you if the prices were reasonable or not because, well, who cares. It's a great place for a yummy treat.

Certainly a local favorite. There are a variety of soft serve options in addition to the typical outdoor ice cream shop treats. It can be quite busy but the lines move quickly. The new mini golf course was a nice addition for visitors.

We go out of our way on every vacation to eat ice cream. We were pleasantly surprised to find Captain Sundae in Holland. The choices of sundaes were endless & we are hoping to go back so that we can try other combinations. Cute place with outdoor seating. The mini golf looked fun & well maintained.

This place has the best sundaes!! My favorite is Tommy Turtle; one they are known for. They have 3 locations now, so if you are near one during season ~ stop in.
