This is a great casual, family friendly ice cream destination. The menu includes several decadent sundaes and other ice cream treats. The Tommy Turtle, which is their signature sundae, was fantastic. Actually, considering the quality of the ingredients, I can't imagine any of their sundaes not being fantastic. I would certainly recommend Captain Sundae!

If you like ice cream treats; sundaes, shakes, cones -- this is your place! There is often a line, but the service is quick and the prices reasonable. There is a huge variety of treats -- where else can you get a creme de menthe sundae? And they do not skimp on the quantity if you go big. Best time... More

This was a delicious stop for ice cream. There were two adults and 8 children in our group and everyone was happy! It was very busy but the line moved pretty quickly. I wish I could give it a five but there wasn't a restroom. That would have been helpful.

The small is a good size, the large is great if you want allot of vanilla ice cream. They have many sundaes to chose from as well as shakes, slush, plus good we just had ice cream.... More

Love Captain Sundae! And so do many other people around Holland! In the summer, it is really crowded on hot evenings but worth the wait. There are many concoctions to choose from and simply delicious! Cap off your day at the beach with a great sundae!!

You can't come to/from Holland State Park without stopping to get yummy ice cream! This will make your trip complete. So many original concoctions to choose from and there really is something for every sweet tooth!

Captain Sundae is a fun stop for ice cream on your way to or from Holland State Park! It is owned by wonderful people. There are almost too many fun menu items to choose from. They even have some regular food items if you need a "real meal", like hot dogs, chicken salad, etc. which are really good too.

Standard soft serve ice cream stand that is run very efficiently. I like the tommy turtle and the beach bum. While in line send people up to read the sundae descriptions so you are ready to order when you get to the window. Ice cream for the sundaes is 95% fat free soft serve although they had some hand-dip. Non... More

We stopped here after viewing the tuplips on Mother's Day. It was a great end to a great day! They have a ton of choices for your sundae's and they were willing to customize. The sizes are priced right and the ice cream was delicious! Right after we ordered a line of about 12 people had formed so they must... More
