“Great Local Ice Cream Shop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

We stopped here after viewing the tuplips on Mother's Day. It was a great end to a great day! They have a ton of choices for your sundae's and they were willing to customize. The sizes are priced right and the ice cream was delicious! Right after we ordered a line of about 12 people had formed so they must be doing something right! If I'm ever back in Holland I wouldn't hesitate to visit here again for dessert.

“a must place to try”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

We almost decided not to stop here but what a mistake that would have been!. It is close to the beach and has a large parking lot. Very very nice ice cream desserts. The menu is large and takes time to sort thru it all unless you just want everything. There is plenty of seating outside with shade and benches. If you are dieting you might want to avoid coming here. We had the Captain on a rope and the Salty dog both were amazing. They also had about 5 different sandwiches one being home made chicken salad on a croissant. The chicken salad had grapes in it which was interesting but good. They have bbq pulled pork sandwiches and hot dogs and ham and cheese sandwiches.

“Good Tasty Sundaes close to the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Went here after reading the reviews. The ice creams are really tasty. Their Tommy turtles are great. So was the captain's buoy! The atmosphere is relaxed with their outdoor seating promoting conversation. very cool place.
