The ice cream and Sunday's are great but the best thing Captain Sunday does is serve you fast. I've stopped when there were 10 or more people in front of me at the window and they got me through in a matter of minutes. They have three stores and know how to make and serve a ice cream. Please give... More

Third time in a row we haven't gotten exactly what we ordered so this time we said something. Even though the menu clearly listed the ingredients of a particular sundae the girl insisted we were wrong and that's not included. The picture of the sundae even had that ingredient on the top of it...but again we were wrong. Work on... More

Always clean, always friendly and great ice cream treats. It's a favorite with my co-workers. At least once a year, we do a 5K walk. Captain Sundaes is the halfway point -- a great incentive.

We have been faithful followers to Captain Sundae for over 25 years. It used to mean a trip to Holland, however, when The Captain came to Zeeland a few years ago, we were thrilled! We took our grandson for opening day this year and enjoyed all the quality that comes with great ice cream. The Tommy Turtle is my favorite... More

What can I say...it's ICE CREAM! Everything I've had here is good and they have good service too. My new favorite is the Light house. Hot fudge, vanilla ice cream, strawberries, more ice cream, pineapple, nuts, whipped cream and a cherry to top it off. The whipped cream is sweeter and more creamy than most. Yummmmmmmmmm!

Don't believe ice cream is made onsite but produced by a W MI company. Large selection of flavors and ice cream dishes and drinks. Several picnic benches outside to eat at as this is a walk-up outside venue. Lines can be long but fast service. There is a second location in Holland. Very popular place.

Not to be confused, this is an outdoor ice cream parlor. Yes, you can get a hotdog and a few other food-type items, but it is first and foremost an ice cream parlor. There ice cream is Hudsonville, which is used about everywhere in this part of Michigan. It's good ice cream. The flavor choices are limited. They have some... More

Doesn't matter how busy they are, service is fast. Lots of selection for ice cream sundaes or cones. Whatever you need, they probably have it.

Experience personally made ice-cream delights. So many choices that your pick can be daunting. However shakes, sundaes, or whatever is advertised is certain to please. I ride to Captain Sundae with the family on our bicycles to burn off the calories.
