Awesome selection of sundaes. I had the Tommy Turtle, it was incredible. Forget tulips and wooden shoes, Captain Sundae is the reason to visit Holland, Michigan.

Both locations are great and always very busy. Probably the choice of most locals. Great ice cream whether eating in or taking out and wonderful ice cream cakes.

Captain Sundae has a huge variety of sundaes, both in terms of ingredients and size. It's a great non-chain (well, there are a few of them in the Holland/Zeeland area, but I don't think it counts as a chain) ice cream location--definitely a local favorite. A great treat!
