Everything was great. Had both a fried flounder plate and a Indian curried salmon which were the opposite ends of traditional Coastal Carolina seafood and the noveau cuisine offerings of today's chefs. We substituted grilled veggies for the fries since we were already getting fried flounder. Biggest surprise was no hush puppies being served or being available on the menu.... More

We decided to do multiple appetizers since we had never been there before. We ordered Grouper Sticks, coconut shrimp, fish tacos, crab cakes, onion rings and a cheeseburger. Everything was delicious. We all shared and had no complaints. Great place, great food, friendly people. Would definitely come back.

Really nice setting on the water for relaxing dinner with friends and/or family. Very fair prices with food that is good value for the money. We visited in August and returned for the ambiance. Plan to be back in March, 2017

The food was wonderful and the staff was amazing. We went for lunch is was busy but we received our drinks right away. I had questions about the menu but they were all answered very throughly. We will definitely return. The prices were also very reasonable.

Food and service are fantastic. Higher-priced than the Irish Pub. Wait staff, for the most part are very pleasant. A little less attentive during tourist season.

The family always enjoy our visits to the Icehouse in downtown Swansboro, the only downfall would be they have so much to choose from on the menu that it's hard to make up your mind sometimes. We had the Scallop Risotto and the Grandwich on our last visit and as always we left satisfied and we got to hear some... More

Really good food and beer. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Has a great small town feel with "big city" quality of food and drink.

Went a few weeks ago since we have heard so much about it and loved it! service was a little slow but we had great food. Only thing that bothered me was the fact that the waiter for another table kept brushing up against me since we were all crammed in there.

We traveled up the east coast in our big rig RV, stayed at the RV Park at Emerald Isle while visiting Icehouse was our favorite restaurant for lunch. Great view of the Harbor and Atlantic.

nested in a quaint historical waterfront part of the town while shopping we found this restaurant that was that was just perfect for dinner. I always love to eat the seafood dishes when I visit the coast since it is local and fresh tasting
