We go out of our way on every vacation to eat ice cream. We were pleasantly surprised to find Captain Sundae in Holland. The choices of sundaes were endless & we are hoping to go back so that we can try other combinations. Cute place with outdoor seating. The mini golf looked fun & well maintained.

This place has the best sundaes!! My favorite is Tommy Turtle; one they are known for. They have 3 locations now, so if you are near one during season ~ stop in.

This is a great seasonal ice cream stand. Love the Tommy Turtle sundae and flurry but the raspberry flurry is my favorite. Being only a short walk from home is a real plus but it is definitely worth a drive. Clean and the workers are always pleasant and friendly.

Fantastic ice cream dishes. Everything from soft serve, hard ice cream, sugar free to fabulous sundaes. Picnic style seating. They just added a mini golf course.

Love this place and I must have the Tommy Turtle at least a couple times each summer. It is a delicious turtle sundae with tons of pecans, caramel, and chocolate fudge. Need I say more? A local favorite.

As far as ice-cream is concerned, they have anything you could want and more. They're famous for their Tommy Turtle Sundae, and you really should try one. A really nice outdoor setting with lots of nice seating - not just basic picnic tables. You can easily go with a large group or family. Just this year they added a mini-golf... More

How do you know when it is spring in Holland? When Captain Sundae opens for the season! 😊 Captain Sundae is a Northside institution and it is THE place to go for a summer ice cream treat whether you are a local, a cottager or a tourist beach-goer. At least a dozen sundae creations available to select from plus handpicked... More

Like ice cream cones & sundaes? his is the place. You could choose something different every day and still not sample everything before they close for the season.
