I have been to Shaw's many times, but my last visit was very disappointing. I ordered moose track ice cream, there was just enough left in the bottom of the container, so that is what I was served. The ice cream taste wasn't the best, also there was only one mini Reese's cup in my cone, and we all now... More

Over 30 flavours of yummy ice cream! There was a queue all the way out the door, but the staff were really efficient so the wait wasn't too long and it was worth it! The only difficulty was choosing a flavour! I guess I'll just have to return then...

We've been coming to Shaw's for a few years now...my dad remembers going when he was a teenager too, they never disappoint. There is always a lineup but the staff are efficient and it moves quickly. With lots of flavours to choose from, don't be afraid to ask for a sample first. My favourites are Moosetracks and Grammy's Cupboard but... More

We stopped here after our trip to port stanley. The place was packed full of screaming crying sugar filled kids but the noise and chaos was worth it. The brownie Sundae was great. They have lots of selections to choose from.

Shaw's is a very nice old-fashioned ice cream parlour. Their selection of real cream locally made ice cream is very good and tasty. There is seating outside.

Shaw's is an amazing place to stop if you are in Port Stanley they make their own ice cream and there are so many flavours. I had their caramel apple ice cream and it tasted like I was eating a caramel apple. I also had a taste of Black Sweet Cherry, Polar Eclipse, and Sunken Treasure. These are all great... More

Almost everyone in our three car pool decided that we would stop at Shaw's on our way from London, Ontario to Port Stanley and Lake Erie. The other one was looking out of the window on the opposite side of the street with headphones on. We figured that a place of this size this far out of town, must make... More

I love Shaw's and have loved it since I was a little kid. I come back to visit often as I crave their fresh and wonderful treats. My absolute favorite is the Raspberry & Truffles, it's amazing!! I will keep coming back here as long as they stay open...

Shaw's offers an amazing array of flavours of ice cream. You pay by the 100 grams so it can get expensive.
