“Great ice cream concoctions!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Captain Sundae is a fun stop for ice cream on your way to or from Holland State Park! It is owned by wonderful people. There are almost too many fun menu items to choose from. They even have some regular food items if you need a "real meal", like hot dogs, chicken salad, etc. which are really good too.

“Sundae heaven”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Standard soft serve ice cream stand that is run very efficiently. I like the tommy turtle and the beach bum. While in line send people up to read the sundae descriptions so you are ready to order when you get to the window. Ice cream for the sundaes is 95% fat free soft serve although they had some hand-dip. Non dairy items are sno-cones, popsicles, raspberry sorbet, and slushes. They also have ice cream cakes you can order and take home. Been there several times, and will go back. At least one of their locations has food but I don't think this one does. Lines can be long but they move really fast and their website says they take special precautions if you have peanut allergies so don't let that keep you away. http://www.captainsundae.net/#!faqs If you want extra rich hand dipped ice cream like Cold Stone Creamery or Graeters this is NOT the place for you.

“Great Local Ice Cream Shop”
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”
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.
