All yummy stuff, and prices are reasonable. Lines may look long, but they move fast. Two or three windows are usually open, and they never seem understaffed. The only negative I can think of is that it's on a bend in a well-traveled road, so getting in and out can sometimes be a little dicey. It's worth the wait, though.... More

I have only used the drive-thru. I have purchased Starbuck's latte and ice cream. My favorite is the Strawberry Flurry - real strawberries and vanilla ice cream, so good and refreshing! If you are in Holland, you should stop by one of the Captain Sundaes and have the perfect finishing touch to a wonderful summer day!

My wife and I go to Captain Sundae often. Their Specialty Sundae called "Captain Sundae", topped with Hot chocolate syrup, butterscotch syrup, crunchy roasted pecans, whipped cream, and a Marishcino cherry to top it off, equals almost perfection. Even the shrub, I mean President Bush enjoyed his Captain Sundae when he visited!

The sundaes are awesome and they don't skimp on toppings. The amaretto cherry hard dip is the best ice cream I've ever had.

All top quality ingredients, and such fun sundaes to choose from, Tommy Turtle is the hands down favorite, but there is Captain's Crunch, Sunken Sailor, Snickering Sailor and the list goes on and on... this is a must stop!

This is so fantastic and scrumptious on a warm summer day. Their portions are big and the smiles on the staff are even bigger. Capt Sundae is a great place to take kids (and adults) for a sweet treat!

Wow. What a great place! The menu is endless. The blizzards are great with all the fruit and topping choices. The service is quick and very cordial. It seems that politicians like to stop there when in Holland. Don't miss this place.

Stopped here on the way back from the State park on Lake Michigan. Took a while to make up our minds since they had lots of choices. Settled for their special. MM good.
