Great selection

We recently visited this establishment and found it to be very good. The ice cream was very good and they had a very large selection. Many of the flavors were different than what you normally find at ice cream shops. The service was very fast considering the amount of people that were in line.

I’m always happy when I see Sherman’s back open, it’s a sure sign summers on its way. The ice cream is made right there and its outstanding. I recommend the Pigs Dinner, 4 huge scoops with your choice of topping and enough for the whole family to share. We do go more often in the spring and fall because in... More

We have had ice cream all over the US!! There is NONE better than Sherman's Ice Cream. Don't be discouraged by the long lines. They move Fast! And, you will NOT be disappointed. The portions are HUGE! Ask to see the small dip (like a soft ball). It was enough for most of our gang!!! The flavors ROCK!!

We are locals and still get excited when they open for the season. It's an old fashioned style ice cream shop with a family feel. They are a large variety of flavors to choose from with some of our family favorites being (cappuccino, butter pecan, pecan praline, Sherman tracks and double malt) If you have never been, under that a...

Every year on the way to the lake house we have to stop at Sherman's! Their ice cream is just phenomenal! My favorite is the Sherman Tracks but they always have an assortment of flavors. Usually during the holiday's such as Memorial day, 4th of July, and Labor day expect a long wait. Wait times can really vary but sometimes... More

Great ice cream and a hometown feel. Not a fancy place but a genuine one. I got a single scoop cone and it seemed to be stacked three scoops high. Plenty of ice cream for both me and my wife. Fun and authentic.

You can find fancier / more expensive ice cream but you will not find any better. Be ready for a wait it's worth it!

If you are in Michigan you must stop at Sherman's for ice cream! It is great for families or if you love ice cream. You stand in line, and they can be long, but they have quite a few young people behind the counter to help you and make the wait shorter than you might think. And believe me it... More

The ice cream is great !! We were visiting South Haven with two of my sisters and my aunt. When we found the shop we laughed and said "it must be good look at the line." It was definitely worth the wait.
