Dallas Things to Do: 467 reviews and 763 photos


The Palm Restaurant as it is today was once an icehouse called the Texas Ice Company. The business started out delivering blocks of ice to homes and businesses by horse-drawn wagons then later progressed to trucks. On the Market St side of the building there are narrow windows which were designed for an old fashioned block of ice to slide straight on to a delivery vehicle.
