I have been in work for Holland lately so I looked up the best restaurants and found Captain Sundae was #1. I was thinking "no way, an ice cream shop is the best restaurant out of 100 something places to eat in Holland?" So I tried it and was pleasantly surprised. I don't know if I'd call it the very...

A trip to Holland isn't complete without a visit to Captain Sundae! Although there are now three locations, the best one is the one on Douglas Avenue. The variety is amazing, and so is the price. Little kids like to play/eat in the model schooner behind the restaurant.

After reading some reviews I i was reluctant because ofsome ofthe reviews, but thankfully I trusted my gut and tried this place anyway. The sundae was yummy and bigger than I could finish. So many combinations to choose from too!

Best ice cream shop around! I love the selection and the great variety of ice cream treats. The setting is nautical and the employee's dress the part. Highly recommended!

Captain Sundae is a local favorite. I know people that try to come to Holland once a year just to get their Captain Sundae fix. They have tons of sundae choices, and also sell a wide variety of soft serve and hard serve choices. great ice cream!

To me, no ice cream treat beats the Tommy Turtle - unless it's the Tommy Flurry! This is THE stop for ice cream - on the way to/from Holland Beach, it couldn't be any more convenient. There are always lines (4 when they're busy) but they move fast...plus you can always pass the time checking out the pictures of President... More

Loved the selections and portion sizes. Known for the "Tommy" (aka Tommy Turtle), there is also a Tammy Turtle which has praline pecans. Lots of space in front and back to sit outside, and there are 4 order/delivery windows. Really liked that they completed our order before moving to the next person in line. Fast service!

This place is as good as it gets in the summer ice cream shop category. Everything has always been well executed on our visits. A must summer stop while in Holland.

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
