Went later in the evening as we'd been craving ice cream most of the day. They were open til 9p.m. but are open seasonally:(

This was a nice treat. They have many different flavors of ice cream. We ordered a small but it was anything but. Their small size is huge. Great deal for the money. I had the yellow cake kind and it was delicious. Would definitely stop...More

The title says it all. Sherman's ice cream is wonderful. I will never visit South Haven and not go there.

We went to Sherman's based on a recommendation of a friend who often visits the area. This is a good 'ole fashioned ice cream dairy bar. Sherman's has many different flavors and changes some of them up a bit. Beware of the large, double-sized portions,...More

If you are in the mood for some real honest to goodness ice cream, Shermans is the place. The sizes are gi-normous and delish. Our family truly enjoyed this ice cream feast.

There's a reason why Sherman's has lasted for generations. Homemade goodness and so many flavors. Huge portions. If you eat inside, the glassware is old fashion fluted style.

So worth the 40 min wait! It's a must on every visit. Take a number and make new friends. You will be glad you stopped.

We were passing through and stopped based on multiple recommendations. Shared the ice cream flight with six flavors. Loved every one!

This is a must stop every time we come to South Haven. Ice cream is great and the hospitality of the crew is better.

Thank you for the inquiry about the trampolines but we no longer have them. We took them out in the early 70's. It was partly because of insurance liability reasons but also to expand and improve our parking lot.
