We were here for lunch and ordered the fried whitefish & chips and the advertised Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Cheese sandwich. My granddaughter was also going to order a root beer until we were told it's $6.00 a bottle (must be some root beer). The fish looked good but was soggy; we ate only one piece. The sandwich had kind... More

The restaurant is a great secret! If you do not want to wait in lines this is the place to go. The chef (People feeder as he calls it) Josh takes great pride in making sure the food is perfect when served. The bartender Steven prepares the most awesome Bloody Mary on the Planet !! This is Restaurant and Bar... More

We went to this restaurant and it was a terrible experience. The setting is nice, and we got seated right away, but we had to wait an EXTREMELY long time for the food, even though there was almost no one else there. When it came, both our dinners were inedible. I had ordered a flatbread pizza. When it came it... More

This restaurant is behind the Island House Hotel, and so it has no ocean view, or the crowds or the smell of horses and fudge. What it does have is great sandwiches, homemade chips and great service. I would definitely recommend a respite there after a day of riding bikes and exploring. Limited menu, but what the large party I... More

The Ice House is certainly a hidden treasure tucked behind the Island House Hotel. We only found it because we asked a bike rental employee for a recommendation for a place to get a good hamburger. Otherwise, we'd have never realized it was there. There were 9 in our party, and we sat outside on the patio. It's a very... More

This wasn't really worth it. My burger was clearly pre-formed and frozen patty. They asked me how I wanted it cooked, i said medium and it came very well done. Bun was very good though. My partner didn't like the whitefish and chips, said didn't taste the freshest. Kids got grilled cheese and hotdog which were both fine. I did... More

Last year I had the BLT and G. This year I had the whitefish and chips. Both were delish. The backyard patio atmosphere is charming and relaxing.
