Can't beat Captian Sundae! Such a huge selection with specialty sundaes, plus classics and even sorbet for those who can't have dairy. Can't go wrong with all the choices!

The Tommy Turtle is my absolute favorite! This is where all the locals go on a hot day or after little league games! So many options to choose from!

It's in Zeeland the people that work there are very friendly and you can tell they like to work there. There are three captain sundae one in Zeeland and two in holland one of them are on the way to the state park. They have great ice cream.

With a selection that just seems to go on forever, this ice creams shop offer the usual cones, sundaes and shakes in more choices than you could eat once a day for a month.
