Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience. The wonderful thing about Slushies is when you make them at home you can always add more or less ice to suit your taste.

We love when bike riders come to cool off! We keep adding bike racks to make it easy to "get slushed".

I hadn't had many ice wines before, and the server gave a great history about them. The wines were very good and the slush wines were perfect for a warm day.

Saw the sign, tasted a slushy, delicious. We were taking the scenic route back from Niagara Falls and saw the sign on the road. There are three sizes--should have bought the biggest one!

You made us laugh... we started off with the baby sized Slushies, then added the "mama" size and then like you lots of people wanted the "papa' size. Our Slushies are made by adding 50% ice so they are about 6% alcohol. Light and refreshing!

We decided to stop on our way to Toronto. We heard that the Ice House made the best ice wine slushies. They do. I tried one of there Ice wines and I thought it was good.

Is there an actual ice bar here? I saw Pellar does but they have no where to sit. Does ice house have a spot to sit and buy a bottle of wine and drink it? Any help would be great. It looks like this time of year no one has a patio open.
