If you travel to Holland Michigan, do not miss Captain Sundae, either north or south side location. Tommy turtle Sundae is the best Sundae in America ! While at the Northside location, you can see pictures of presidential candidates and Secret Service who have stopped for ice cream here while campaigning over the years

This place is very popular, so be prepared to wait in line. They have so many different sundae & ice cream choices it's ridiculous. I couldn't tell you if the prices were reasonable or not because, well, who cares. It's a great place for a yummy treat.

Certainly a local favorite. There are a variety of soft serve options in addition to the typical outdoor ice cream shop treats. It can be quite busy but the lines move quickly. The new mini golf course was a nice addition for visitors.

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.
