Nostalgia & great ice cream

My family has been going to Shaw's on the way back to London from the beach at Port Stanley since the 1950s. They have a really wide choice of delicious flavours. There are picnic tables outside. When the weather is cold and they're less busy, there are a couple of tables inside.

Pricey ice cream as they weigh it. Tasty but expensive so not a common stop for us. We are in port Stanley even weekend in the summer and sure wouldn't stop too often because of the price.

I stop here almost every time I drive past, just love it! Very busy in the summer months but it's worth the wait. Ice cream is charged by weight.. Can be pricy if you don't mention a smaller portion.

Should definitely drop by if in the area of St.Thomas/Port Stanley. Just a note of caution, their ice cream is by the weight! If you don't tell them, they will put alot on. A double scoop ice cream is like a meal! Awesome flavours: Grammy's cupboard, raspberry & truffles, sweet and salty pretzels, double cookies, etc. There are many flavors... More

The ice cream here is totally worth the drive. There are so many flavour choices and they are all so good. I have been here multiple times with lots of people. It is my favourite stop on the way home from the beach. AMAZING!

Nostalgic atmosphere and fantastic ice cream. You can't drive by without stopping. My wife and I both had the Chocolate Peanut Butter. So good !

We loved Shaw's icecream parlour outside St. Thomas, Ontario. Their was a huge selection of flavours and all of the ones we tried were delicious. The real bonus, however, was that there were options for the diabetic in our group - not just the usual vanilla, but a couple of gourmet flavours. The parlour has an old fashioned down to... More

Dropped by here this afternoon after a day in Port Stanley.. My husband ordered a scoop of the cookie dough and I had a scoop of bubblegum ice cream. I guess we should've ordered one of the house specialty to give the right justice to their ice cream but since its my first time to try it, I didn't find... More

Shaw's was one of our early discoveries when we first moved to southwest Ontario and were exploring the area. Wed have tried much of their menu (ice cream, sundaes, splits) and everything is good, well, better than good. People come from all around for their cool treats. I'm sure there are others like us who will drive for an hour... More

I love that I can go in post beach in my bare feet. Tons of selections, friendly people *usually* working, and somewhat reasonable prices.
