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.

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.
