Best ice cream ever

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.

The ice cream is absolutely top notch: rich, creamy and dozens and dozens of choices. The sundaes are creative and wonderful. The portion sizes are huge. My only hesitation is how slow is the line (which snakes outside and down the sidewalk). Popular is great...but we don't go unless we are willing to wait a long time. It is worth... More

This is a nice place for a tasty family treat. We've been here multiple times over the years and is never gets old. The children love the variety and pleasant atmosphere. We always keep this place in mind when up for a treat.

This is the yummiest, creamiest ice cream I've ever tasted. It's kind of a South Haven tradition to go here right after sunset...or right before to avoid the summertime lines. Take a number and just be prepared to wait during rush time. not usually more than 5-8 minutes. The servings are very large so I usually get a "baby cone"....but... More

WOW - My wife and tried Shermans this past weekend while traveling though the South Haven area. This place is located a little off the beaten path. However, it's worth while. The ice cream is not the usual you'd find. It's thick and creamy and tasty. If you're looking for some quality ice cream, this is definitely the place to... More
