We were in town for my nephew's wedding and needed dinner one night for a group of 18. The restaurants in town wouldn't accommodate us or take reservations but Icehouse did. Food was great and the wait staff was outstanding.

Fish tacos was great. Side of beans and rice not so great a little plain. Good shrimp and fried clam was good. Prices are reasonable.

This little restaurant was great for my family. They had both seafood and non-seafood options and all the food was delicious. We sat outside on the water and it was a cool summer night. Would def recommend.

Good afternoon, sorry took so long to respond. Just spoke with the executive chef and he told me that he won't give out any of his recipes. Sorry, but you can always come and visit us and order it again... 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.
