Never go wrong

Have never seen so many sundae options in my life. You CANNOT go to Captain Sundae's and not find what you like. (well, unless you didn't like ice cream and fudge) The menu is a little overwhelming... maybe they could simplify it a little? My kids love it every time we go.

It you're craving ice cream, this is the place! From cones to sundaes and sandwiches, you won't be disappointed. Sundaes all have cute, clever and unique names. Ice cream, whether soft service or hard Hudsonville brand, it is yummy! This is a seasonal place for Holland's northside, but Hollands' southside and the Zeeland are open year round.

Always good, but they changed their base of ice cream when ownership changed a few years back but it is still good enough for most potential presidents of the Usa to stop at!

Captain Sundae is a Holland landmark. We have been going here for years. I would recommend the Pirate's Booty!

This is the sundae they're known for. Hot fudge, caramel, and toasted pecans. Generous portions. Very creative combinations offered with fruits, donuts, candy and other treats. Summer isn't complete without at least one visit.

Got to get your ice cream on the way out from the beach. Great sundaes and great people. I like to try the different creations.

This is a must stop if you are in Holland! So many choices to choose from but try the clasic Tommy Turtle and you will be hooked!

Whether you're in need of a Tommy Turtle or a Mermaid, Captain Sundae will not disappoint! Best ice cream around and so many varieties of sundaes, cones, and treats to choose from heres no way you'll leave unhappy. We look forward to the opening every year!
