Had lunch with a friend and the pickerel was delicious. She had turkey pot pie which was a huge serving and also very delicious. Would definitely return again if in the area.

We stopped in for lunch about 2 p.m. and enjoyed the intimated environment at The Olde Ice House. The French onion soup was lovely, the breakfast choice came with home made jam, and dessert was still warm from the oven. The antique décor, friendly staff,...More
