“Beware of the cigarette smoke”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

Their food is usually pretty good. Sometimes we stop in on our way through the area. Service has improved over the years. We would visit more often if it wasn't for all the cigarette smoke. I wish they would put the smokers outside. Probably a good place for smokers to eat.

“Good eating joint in Albany”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

On the exterior, the building has been keep fairly original to its days as an ice house so it blends in to a town that has had its glory days some time back. It is easy to miss because the sign is the only thing that gives it away. The food was good and the waitress was very cute. I recommend stopping.

“Lunch at the Ice House on a trip to Albany texas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

2 girl friends and I drove to Albany Texas about a 2 hour drive from the DFW area to visit the Old Jail Art Center. We arrived around 12:30 and were hungry so we parked close to the museum and then walked across the street to the Ice House. It is so cute inside with mis-matched tables and chairs with an atmosphere that was friendly and casual...you could tell that this was a stopping place for the locals as well. One of my friends ordered the lunch chicken fried steak but it had sold out....so 2 ordered Tex-Mex and I had the senior plate of chicken tenders, fries and gravy. We also were served hot, crispy chips and some home made delicious salsa....we Texans take our salsa seriously and the Ice House has a good one to share. Our wait person was so funny and we enjoyed the visit very much. The Tex.Mex meals were really good but I must admit the fires were limp and the chicken fingers were just OK...but the gravy was yumo. So go and enjoy the atmosphere, the local mix and the Tex Mex and salsa and chips. Oh, and i love my Diet Coke and theirs is so good as it is served with fine snow cone ice....that is worth it too!!
