Good quality ice cream in a friendly family oriented setting. Large selection of flavors and tastes before selecting what you want were available.

What a treat!! Everyone in our group was happy with what they got. I had the Marion County Blackberry ice cream and OMG was it good! Definitely a must especially if you are an ice cream lover (I am not but I highly recommend); also very convenient location right of the 196 and Phoenix Rd exit. There are long lines... More

(If you wish to see the summary of this review, scroll down to the asterisks near the bottom.) During each of our vacations to South Haven, we always go to Sherman's at least twice. It is a highlight of each trip. Since is is right off the Interstate, you can't miss it. The ice cream is the best. It is... More

At first a single scoop for almost 4 bucks seems like a lot, but it's because you actually get 3 scoops in a single. No one in my family could finish their singles but the place was nice enough to give us a cup. If it's busy best ask for a cup when you order. There are a ridiculous number... More

A very popular location for the locals & tourist. Really good ice cream & large portions. Go there every time in south Haven, but if you go late afternoon or evening, the lines are long. Despite that, the service is fairy quick

When you have been making ice cream for 99 years you know what you are doing. Add to that 50+ flavors, it causes one to spend some time gazing into the case trying to decide on your flavor. Before ordering, take a look at the size of the cones people are getting. They are huge!! Some ice cream shops 'scoop'... More

We do a family vacation with another couple and their kids every year. This year, we have been to Sherman's every single day! Why? Because it's awesome in every respect. Food, service, portions? Yes! All of the above. Also a great place to people watch! We saw some REALLY strange people there. No, I mean really strange. This part of... More

Seems like a tradition in South Haven. Go to the beach, watch the sun set, then head off to Sherman's at dark. We did that. It's crowded but they move through the orders pretty quickly. We pulled number 64 on arrival and they were serving 40....we waited about 20 minutes. The place was jam packed. Ice cream and milk shakes... More

How can ice cream be better. The portions are large(everyone is surprised at how large one scoop is) . It is hectic, but if you take a number from the number dispenser right when you enter, time goes fast. This is not only a fair way to proceed, but also puts a slight time limit on your decsision, which is... More
