My family thinks the ice cream is okay. The constant lines outside told us we had to try it. But we think we've had better. The serving size is HUGE. Good news if you love their ice cream. Wouldn't discourage anyone from going though as it is also a nice summer experience.

Everyone in town recommended this ice cream and it did not disappoint! My favorite was the chocolate peanut butter. The kids loved it but the portions are so huge that they couldn't finish it all. Next time we will share.

One place that lives up to its reputation. The portions are huge; two can share a single scoop. Though you won't see many who do share as the ice cream is the real deal. Many flavor varieties to go along with the standards. I particularly enjoyed the cotton candy variety.

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is quaint & the ice cream is awesome. I recommend the HUGE waffle cones

A South Haven summer must do. Sherman's is an institution around here. The best part of the atmosphere is the ice cream factory. This is not a restaurant. It's just ice cream at its finest.

The portions here are huge. A single cone is plenty for most people. The flavor choices are numerous! They even have some yogurt and sorbet choices. The baby cone is certainly no "baby"!

Whenever we visit South Haven, we always make time for Sherman's. Although the wait can be a little long sometimes it is totally worth the wait. There are so many choices of icecream, toppings, sodas, floats...its endless. If you come to South Haven, Sherman's is a must!!!

YUM! I think that 99% of the reviews have to start this way! Great ice cream, tons of flavors, large portions at a good price! The waitress that served (different establishment) us used to work at Sherman's and highly recommended we stop here on our way out of town. She said that here two favorite flavors were caramel caramel caramel... More
