When you think of a typical, road side ice house and you don't picture the West Alabama Ice House, then stopping by is an imperative so you can see what an real ice house is. Located just East of Shepherd, this open air bar provides simplicity in its offerings, and that is what makes the joint so successful. If you want beer, if you want to visit, if you want to sit on a picnic table and watch commuters struggle by wistfully looking in, maybe some live music and a hot-dog, then this is definitely the place. -Richard Hannah
