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

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.

We had the tommy turtle that is a turtle subsea with salted pecans. Is your get the Tammy turtle it has praline pecans. 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!
