Amazing Ice Cream, Huge Scoops, Cash Only!!

Charlie's Round the Corner Ice Cream was FANTASTIC. I had a single scoop in a waffle cone and I can say that it was close to a double or triple scoop! It was well worth the 5 dollars or so. It was also very tasty. This is a cash only establishment, so take that into consideration. I loved the... read more

The ice cream was very good. It was kind of small inside but there is lots of outdoor seating. must try while in Saugatuck.

When we visited it was cash only payment. I never carry more than $3 cash as I rely on my credit cards and debit cards so I get points. Anyway, it was cash only so I had to go to the ATM next door and pay $$$ fees. It was so annoying. Please come into the 1980's and allow credit... More

COME HERE FOR AMAZING ICE CREAM! But definitely don't come for the service, because the young girls behind the counter are RUDE. Ignoring them, the ice cream is fantastic. When mfamily and I got here, the line was out the door! But while we were there, it died down, so keep an eye out for a lull so you can... More

We went here two nights in a row!!! There are a ton of flavors and the servings are very generous. The second night we almost tried ice cream from another place and once we got there we realized their price was higher and the serving was much smaller. Loved this place.

Lots of flavors to choose from and a friendly staff, eager to please. Come with an appetite--the helpings are large. I had the salty caramel--yum! Benches outdoors in front of the shop and adequate tables indoors.

This place serves Sherman's ice cream which is some of the best I've had. Smooth, creamy, excellent quality..not "gummy" and no aftertaste. Skip Kilwin's and go to Charlie's. Better prices and better and bigger cones!

Across the street from Kilwins that draws the crowds, but better value here. Strawberry ice cream with huge chunks of strawberries was perfect way to end the night

We always enjoy coming here to get in out of the hot and to get a nice cool cone of our favorite ice cream. It is right in the heart of the town and outside there are benches to sit and enjoy the flavors.

We weren't impressed by this place and honestly, I feel like they make their money off the people who don't want to wait to go to Kilwan's. A child's cone, one scoop, was $3.50. That seems pretty steep for just a plain old ice cream cone. Cash only.
