If our family wants a treat, we go to houseman’s Any flavor is awesome and the service is always friendly and fast. Long lines mean good things. So... they are chalk full of good things :)

This is a great place to order your favorite ice cream treat, sit on a bench, talk with friends and watch a pop-up car show. They're closed in the winter but often open on a warm early Spring day--can't wait!

If you like Turtle Sundaes you will love theirs! Its as good as the Tommy Turtle at Captain Sundae in Holland. Yet I don't have to drive all the way to Holland to get it.

I love houseman's! The people are great, and so is the ice cream! It's right by a bike path so you can bike to it. 10/10 best ice cream around

We have loved this ice cream shop for decades. They serve generous portions at decent prices. The staff is friendly. Sometimes there are very long lines, but no one seems to be bothered by them.

This is a wonderful small town feel ice cream shop. Really friendly staff....and as my grandaughter always remembers....they will put googly eyes on your ice cream and you can eat them! Doesn't get any better than that!

Small town ice cream shoppe. Lots of outdoor seating. Large portions. Right on 'main street' Byron Center. Be prepared for long lines on a hot summer night 😁
