There is a reason this is the #1 place to eat in South Haven. We went twice during our stay and it was the perfect way to end our evening. Everything is delicious!

We passed the many other enticing ice cream and sweets shops to stop at Sherman's before leaving South Haven. The place was packed on a sunny Saturday afternoon. We grabbed a number, and had about 20 to wait before ours was called. It gave us some time to ponder over the plethora of ice cream choices (and yes, I know... More

All I can say is if you like ice cream, and even if you don't, this is a must stop. May I recommend the baby size unless you are really hungry!!! My husband had bacon ice cream, yes I did say bacon. It was kind of good in a weird sort of way. Long lines can sometimes be the case,... More

Wonderful choices, made onsite, many different kinds. My favorite, non-duplicatable elsewhere is Mackinac Island Fudge. Even their "baby" size is large.

I am never disappointed. I just love their ice cream. I have been going here since I was a kid. The portions are unbelievable so don't order on an empty stomach.

I would make the trip back to South Haven just to have some ice cream from Sherman's. If you're in the area, you have to stop at Sherman's.

They have been serving it up here for a very long time. Good quality ice cream in hefty portions! It gets a little crowded on summer nights, but worth the wait!!!!

I've been going to Sherman's for the past 31 years with my family and haven't found a better ice cream anywhere else. Blue Moon is always a favorite among the kids. I like supporting a local business. Warning: you can't go just once while you're in town!

Okay, did it again! Got a 2-scooper but this time we skipped the waffle cone and got it in a cup. Price must have increased, since it was still around $12.00 for two double scoops and no yummy waffle cones! Though this ice cream is very good, we're starting to think that it doesn't warrant the price. In previous reviews,... More

I have never seen a ice cream place that is so much busy. It was a great experience to eat local ice cream here. It would have been nice if they have more counter space to order so that people don't have to wait for long to get ice cream.
