The Ice House was a perfect spot to celebrate our anniversary. The waiter was very attentive. The beer cheese soup was hot and delish and the garlic toast buttery and perfectly crunchy. The steak was slightly overcooked but VERY tasty and the fish was excellent. The au gratin potaoes were dry and *eh* but the baked potato was nice. Someone (not sure it was the manager) came over to ask us how our food was before we'd even taken our first bite and I was disappointed that they didn't ask if we wanted an after dinner drink or dessert.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn while in Detroit Lakes, MN, and the Ice House Restaurant is on the premises. Decided to eat dinner at the Ice House and we were pleasantly surprised. We both had the local walleye and it was very good. Salad bar and sides were also tasty. Lots of locals were in the crowd - I could tell they were locals because they came in through an outside door instead the hotel entrance. And locals are a good sign that the food is at least okay. The next morning we had breakfast at the Ice House, and again, the place had lots of locals. Breakfast was very reasonably priced, especially for a hotel restaurant. Again, the food was good. The servers are very efficient and friendly.

The food is decent, the servers were the friendliest out of all the places we ate at in Minnesota. So yes I would eat here again. There chicken was good, they kept our drinks refilled. The food was served hot and a timely manner.

I've eaten here several times over the years, never impressed (sometimes quite disappointed) with the food. The one exception being the Sunday brunch buffet. That is the only time I'd recommend dining here. Occasionally go for a drink on the weekend, usually not anything too spectacular.

We have enjoyed Sunday Brunch here several times. They have a breakfast brunch and a lunch brunch on Sundays. Other days of the week they have a good salad bar with several selections of toppings and there is also cheese,crackers, bread, meatballs and soups to enjoy. The dining room/bar overlooks the lake so it is a pretty view. There bar adjoins the restaurant with a sliding door between. It is located in the Holiday Inn hotel.
