Delicious

Fun place for ice cream. They have many different choices including hand dipped ice cream and soft serve, novelty treats, shakes, chocolate covered bananas, and more. They have a large variety of each.

This is a fun place to eat ice cream. The Tommy Turtle Sundae is the best. It has a quaint place to sit outside and eat the delicious treat. Captain Sundae also serves sandwiches.

This is a great place for ice cream with some very creative sundaes. One of three locations has indoor seating, the other two just outdoor.

We stopped by to try their famous Sundae because of all the reviews. We did not regret it. This was the best Sundae we ever had. Will definitely stop by next time we are in the area.

we wanted to check out this place cuz it's high ratings. both of our fudge sundaes are loaded with sugar and probably ~400 calories. nevertheless, a nice cool treat on a warm afternoon. most menu items are $3.50 to $4 range, and low cal items are indeed available. the outdoor settings are casual n relaxing. quite a unique setting!

This is the one place that my husband and I must visit every summer we visit Holland! We are both huge ice cream snobs. So when I tell you that this place takes soft serve and makes life changing sundaes, you might be surprised. I'm not even quite sure how they do it. Most of the ingredients seem pretty common...

Cute place to get ice cream. They have many different types of sundaes. One of our kids doesn't do ice cream, so she even had a few options in ice cream truck type of desserts. Which thrilled her. It was a busy place today even though the wind made it cold outside.

This was a fun last minute spot. And, super yummy! One word of caution. .. the menu is pretty extensive for an ice cream place. Lots to read & choose from. If you have little ones who want to read all the choices, you could be awhile! Haha! Everything we tried was delicious!

Captain Sundae looks kitschy and silly but truly, you'll have a phenomenal treat if you have the sense to pull over. We ate Tommy Turtle Sundaes--omg, crazy good. Toasted buttered pecans, caramel, hot fudge over awesome ice cream w whipped cream--delish!! My husband and I are ice cream fanatics/connoisseurs (ha) and rank this one of the best ice cream sundaes... More
