Stopped at this famous ice cream spot in Holland Quality satisfactory I think gets jammed up with limited parking some times but kudos to the business and trying to keep up with the daily challenges.

We are locals, and go to "the Captains" on a pretty regular business so we sometimes take for granted how good we have it in the ice cream department. This place, whether on Holland's south side, Zeeland, or the original on Ottawa Beach Road on Holland's north side, is always super friendly, super generous, and super good!

Captain Sundae has been a staple in Holland for many years. Home of the Tommy Turtle Sundae. They have a few food items, hard and soft ice cream. They have just added in 2016 a miniature golf course. Both areas are busy this season in the evenings. Their location is a few miles from the campgrounds and the lake. They... More

Make a couple trips every summer to get the infamous Tommy Turtle. The roasted pecans just make it the perfect treat. And they don't skimp on them!

This little ice cream spot has been around for years and never fails to make a perfect sundae. The go- to favorite by far is the Tommy Turtle...soft serve vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, hot caramel, buttery salted pecans, whipped cream and a cherry topping it all off. Heaven in a cup!

Love the ice cream desserts, but not cheap. Take two or three adults and 1 or two children......adds up fast.

Captain Sundae has The Best sundaes I've ever had. They don't skimp on the toppings or ice cream. The Flavor is awesome. It's not summer without a visit for our favorite Tommy Turtle! Workers are always pleasant too.

Four of us visited for ice cream cones, and they were just OK. The hand packed ice cream seemed to be soft, although each had a different flavor, and the ice cream was melting down the cone as soon as we were handed them. The amount of ice cream served on each cone was a bit less than what we... More

The have the best soft serve ice cream hands down. We have had sundaes, shakes, malts, twists-and have never had a bad experience. I personally love the "Tommy Turtle" or the "Captain Cashew". The hot fudge and caramel is out of this world.
