If you’re thinking about going to a dessert place in Richmond on a weekend night – good luck waiting in line … (sometimes even out the door!)
Attempted to go to Icy Bar on a weekend night and failed miserably. Luckily, we beat the rush the next Friday night and was able to be seated quickly.
Variety: 9/10 – well it is called “Icy Bar” so you better come there expecting to eat shaved ice desserts. There are other alternatives like toast, fruity pancakes, and ice cream … but you would want to go there for the shaved ice dessert..
Service: 7.5/10 – chillen/down-to-earth staff, but it took awhile until we were able to order. They gave us too much time to ponder.
Taste: 7.5/10 – ordered the “3 toppings shaved iced” (mango, strawberries, and poppers/bobas). It wasn’t significant, but since you had the option of using the unlimited bottle of condensed milk, it added the extra/missing flavor.
Atmosphere: 9/10 – absolutely loved the music the workers had playing. R&B style with some throwback mixed into there. Got me jamming while eating my shaved ice.
Reasonable Price?: 7/10 – desserts are pricy wherever you go; you’re basically paying for ice made of water & science topped with some seasonal fruits and unlimited condensed milk (which is usually an additional cost!).
Would I go here again? Yes, just to jam out while eating my fruits and shaved ice!
