Description
Ice House BBQ & Bar serves a deliciously creative selection of classic home-style smoked barbecue favorites casually served at your choice of umbrella table in the carefully curated garden or under the tent on the deck. Follow the path to the left of the Island House Hotel across from the marina to escape the downtown hustle at the secluded hideaway the locals don’t want you to know about.
