There have been many ice cream shops in this location. Captain Sundae is the only one that stayed for more than a couple of years. There is always enough help behind the counter even if the lines are long.

Always a wonderful product as well as fantastic service. The people are always quick, polite, and patient with those of us with trouble deciding. Even though there is always a line at every window they are quick to get us through. They also have a very enjoyable area for us to enjoy our ice cream.

The original is on Ottawa Beach Road & would suggest going the extra distance for the atmosphere. A local favorite.

They have the best ice cream. Known for their tommy turtle. But tons of choices. Always a line. Mostly young people working there and they are always soooo nice. You eat outdoors and they are closed for the winter. They also have 2 places in Holland, one on the way to the beach and one on the southside of Holland.... More

Loved this place for years, now it's a must stop for my JV golf teams when we play in the area. It's my favorite ice cream stop.

Best place in Zeeland for Ice Cream! It's close to my house so we are there more often than we should be! The Sundays are great and they also serve dipped ice cream - the famous Hudsonville Ice Cream.

They have great sundae and flurry options along with many other items. They also have some lunch items. If you go at night in the summer on a nice weather night, be prepared to wait in line for awhile!

Love having a hometown icecream shop. Lots of flavors and choices to fulfill that sweet tooth. Can get busy with ball players or school groups but worth the wait.
