I had fish tacos. Fish was fresh as other ingredients, just not special. Best fish or shrimp tacos I’ve had we’re at Morgans in New Bern

Icehouse is my favorite place to dine in Swansboro. The views while you eat are as excellent as the food. The seafood, especially the Grouper is always cooked to perfection. The menu is varied enough that you can bring your red meat eater with you.

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.
