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.

Shaws has been in business for a great number of years. It was run by the Shaw boys. They have the best tasting ice cream in North America. I had a craving for the black cherry ice cream so stopped by on Sunday past and enjoyed the real flavour of black cherries. They use fresh fruit in all of their... More

This is a place where my car automatically turns into. The workers are always professional and very pleasant. The selection of ice cream is great and the taste is outstanding. The only thing I have to complain about is that they quit making the licorice swirl. That was my favorite.

I've been visiting Shaw's for 50 years. You can't spend a day on the beach at Port Stanley without stopping here for a cool treat. Quality ice cream and great service. We arrived with a party of ten recently and they managed our order without a hitch.
