Wonderful sundaes and other ice cream treats! Many visits here during the summer and LOVE that the southside location is open in the winter!

This is a great ice cream place. The signature of the place is very creative and interesting ice cream sunday's. Their signature s the the Tommy Turtle, but my favorite is the Pirate's Booty.

If you visit Holland or Zeeland MI. you must stop and enjoy Ice Cream at Captain Sundae. It's a Holland Zeeland tradition!!! Best Ice Cream selection and best prices. I recommend you visit the location on Ottawa Beach Road on the north side of Holland. It's their best and most visited location. It is located on the way to Holland... More

We took our chlldren there when they were young, and every time they return to the area, it's one of the "must do's" on our list. A Tommy Turtle for me, and every else has their own personal favorite.

Not a ton too say about this place. They do Ice cream and do it extremely well. Go for the Turtle Sundae and if it is not your cup of tea try one of the other 50 sundaes. Great stuff!!

The ice cream at Captain Sundae is very good. Soft serve is available along with flavor burst and Hudsonville hard ice cream. There are many varieties of specialty sundaes, (Tommy Turtle is my favorite) regular sundaes, and many flavors of ice cream. This place is usually busy and can have long lines. The staff are friendly and keep the lines... More

Stopped here for a quick snack after a trip to Dutton Park in Holland. The service was fast and efficient. We were greeted with a great smile from Monica. The ice cream cones were perfect for the girls. My peanut butter chocolate malt was not toally mixed and there was some plain ice cream at the bottom of the cup.... More

Captain Sundae is the type of ice cream place that has lines even in 50 degree weather! President Bush visited and had the famous Tommy Turtle ...which then became more famous. All of the grandkids want to go the Captain Sundae whenever they visit.
