We live locally in Emerald Isle NC and decided to visit the Icehouse for dinner on Tuesday, 7/15/2014 running the risk of typical summer crowds...the Icehouse is very popular because of the food and Swansboro waterfront views.. It had been a while since we had been there but really enjoyed the visit. Although crowed, our wait time (there were 6 of us) was minimal.
Once seated our server, Jackie, arrived to take drink orders, explain specials and dinner favorites. I had heard the fish taco's were filling and tasted great. They are filled with grouper (fried, broiled or blackened) with a variety of shredded cheeses on top. Various sauces available too! I thought about a side salad or other items but Jackie assured me the tacos would be sufficient. The others ordered various entree's and I was more than content with the fish taco's. I received three large & loaded taco's and the price of $10 made it one of the best deals around the area!
Generally, we had a great experience and Jackie was superb blending a pleasant personality, extensive knowledge of the menu and attentiveness that didn't make us feel pressured to eat and get out to make room for other guests. We'll be back!
