You've got to go here for ice cream, anytime or a treat after dinner. Locals visit this place, and it always seems to be busy

My family and I went out to Captain Sundae on a Friday evening. The mini golf course is pirate themed. It is clean and super fun. The plant and flowers around the course are well taken care of and the staff was very nice. After our game ended, we headed over for some ice cream, there are so many choices.... More

They have hand scooped and soft serve ice cream with many topping and combination options. This can make the menu a little overwhelming at first, so take your time to decide. I had two scoops in a cone, and they were both very good.

If you want to blend in and do what the locals do.. Come visit captain sundae after you've spend the afternoon at the beach.. You'll find all generations.. From 2 to 99.. You can enjoy some signature ice cream mixes( some created by local icecream lovers)... And you can play a round of mini golf at the pirate cove!

A trip to Holland wouldn't be complete without a sundae from Captain Sunday's. And now they've added a small putt putt golf course and additional seating to accommodate their many customers. They are known for their Tommy Turtle sundae for good reason. It's a great blend of soft serve ice cream, caramel and chocolate topping and peanuts, and of course... More

We actually live near Captain Sundae and it's hard to stay away. Best Ice cream shop in Holland. We also own rental property directly behind Captain Sundae and all of our tenants love it.

Our son is a local, and this is his favorite ice cream shop. You can't go wrong with a medium, it was way more than I could eat.

Fun for the whole family. Voted #1 Ice Cream in West Michigan for the past 10 + years. They serve soft serve and Ashby's and Hudsonville hard ice cream. Sundaes are the speciality, be sure to try the famous Tommy Turtle. Over 45 speciality sundaes to choose from. Brand new Pirate themed mini golf course, a huge hit for all... More
