The ice cream is delicious. We had Salted Caramel and the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. A single scoop on a waffle cone is more than enough for one person (probably two). However, they close down fairly early compared to the amount of people that are still walking around downtown Saugatuck, so get there before 7 or 8pm. The pricing is... More

Recommended by our B&B hosts, they offered very large single scoops and had a system to get through the long line very quickly.

Ice cream places abound in Saugatuck, but if you're looking for unique flavors, Charlie's is the place to go. Their prices are aligned with other shops, but they seemed to have larger serving sizes. I had a wonderful chocolate covered pretzel ice cream that was a perfect blend of sweet and salty. And the pretzels were still crisp.

Lots of flavors from which to choose. Homemade ice cream that is really delicious. Friendly servers and usually pretty crowded so go early.

Charlie's is a tradition with the family. We lived here for close to thirty years( Charlie's was owned by someone else) but it is still the same place and same good ice cream. Huge scoops of great ice-cream. Many, many flavors as well as some frozen yogurt and sherbets. The kids that work there are polite and help with the... More

This place is so unassuming! You've got your neon sign in the window, freezer upon freezer of ice cream, two smiling employees behind the counter, and a handful of "lake country" decorations mixed in with a few cozy tables. I love that their focus is on the ice cream rather than trying to impress people with an ostentatious interior. Speaking... More

Amazing ice cream. Huge flavor selection. I had the praline pecan ice cream. Heavenly! A must stop on every one of our trips. Seating inside, but there are benches outside where you can enjoy the ice cream and people watch.

Lots of flavors to choose from. Sit outside or inside. The "kid size" is just enough. This is a nice break from chain store ice cream.
