Service is always good. Food comes out within a decent amount of time. I never really have a complaint about the food.

Sit on outside deck over harbor if possible. Really good food at very reasonable prices. Busy with locals and live music in the bar area. Fun! We've enjoyed this restaurant for years and will be back soon.

The dining room has a lovely view. The wait staff was excellent. I had the Blackened Mahi. My husband had the Fried Shrimp and fries. Both plates came with an abundance of food. It was delicious!

I've been to the Icehouse about 6 times. There is one recurring theme...almost every time it seems that, "It's an off day." Things just don't seem "right." Today was no exception. We ordered the crab bisque, it is normally very good. Today, it was barely...More

I think you might - especially if it's early in the evening or on the weekend! Our party did not have reservations (10 people) on a WEDNESDAY around 7:00 in the evening.
