The place was packed and for good reason! I had the chocomania and hubby had peanut butter cookie dough. Both excellent! Can see why it's a favorite of locals and visitors.

Been going here for years with family and introduced our friends after a Facebook post of it on the Michigan Ice Cream Tour. I am not a big fan of ice cream period, but three people enjoyed the pig trough which you indicialize your four favorite ice creams with toppings. The trough was nearly licked clean and made it a...

No way to match the flavors and quantity starting with a baby portion and ending with a pigs dinner. Ask for the topping of your choice in a cup on the side, or you will have spillover on the table instead of in the mouth. Everything is fresh including the free coffee. A place not to be missed and the... More

Decided to go to the source (After having Sherman's ice cream at another place) but we made a mistake: ordered two scoops in a waffle cone. Mistake was each cone came with over a pint of ice cream. The ice cream is the best, but the serving size is ridiculously large. Totally our mistake, we ate what we could (1/3)... More

A sign of spring that comes before the flowers and buds, when Sherman's opens you know winter is on its way out and ice cream is the treat of the day! Servers never rush you to make your choice, are sensitive to those with allergies and whatever ice cream I get, I am always satisfied.

If you don't mind waiting in line, this place has the best ice cream in West Michigan. Portions are large so come hungry. It's a destination!
