“It's All About the Ice Cream!”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Ice cream absolutely delicious and the service is outstanding. Servers among the most friendly and helpful I've ever experienced pretty much anywhere. Portions are HUGE. Prices really good. Can't say enough good things about the folks who work here. Great location, too. Get a cone or cup and walk on down too the beach/lighthouse. Nice way to end your day in South Haven.

“Dirty place”
Reviewed 3 September 2013 via mobile

Nasty place. Dirty tables, sticky floor. Greasy food. Needs better management. Workers seemed overwhelmed.

“Yummy ice cream!”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

After dinner next door, we went to Capt. Nemos for dessert. They have amazing ice cream flavors. We chose the following: chocolatemania, toffee, French silk and black cherry. We all loved every flavor. The long line does move quick! I can't wait to go back and try other flavors!

“Ice Cream”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

OK, OK, Captain Nemo's can serve you lunch. They can serve you dinner. Their menu is typical burgers / sandwiches / fries and if you eat their you won't be disappointed.

But go for the ice cream. They serve massive portions of some very good brand. $3.50 or so gets you all any sane person really wants to eat, and since the friendly staff know it's too big for the sugar cones they'll suggest you take a styro bowl to go with it. Other places may have wild flavors and tons of toppings but Nemo's is exactly where I want to be on a hot summer day after the beach.
