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!

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.
