My family and I are new to the area and are enjoying exploring the local spots to eat. Love the atmosphere, right on the water. Food was very good. Nothing on the menu reached $30, not even surf and turf. The food was delicious, and deserts were decadent. The wait staff is very friendly and quick. Feels like a family when you are there. Only negative for me is the parking. Little dirt lot next to the place, then a few spots on the street. This proves frustrating on a rainy day. Parking lot was a bit on the mud side. Other than that, no complaints. Looking forward to future visits.

We brought a party of 34 to the Icehouse. Our 16 soccer players sat together and the parents sat separately. The Icehouse staff did a fantastic job of creating separate checks. The food was excellent and the little bit of snow outside was a added bonus!

On the advice of a local, (usually best), our 3 families stopped in for a late lunch and cocktail. Wonderful service, incredible beer selection and the food was delicious! You have to try the ahi sliders... my first, but definitely not my last. Oh yeah... GREAT setting too!

In a cute little area, you sit right out on the water with windows all around which is great! Sea food was nice and fresh too. Service was slow but if you're not in a rush it won't worry you.
