We looked for "Where The Locals Eat and found the Ice house. So glad we did. We had a great meal with extremely large portions and the service was best in the city from my experience. daily specials and a great menu for choice.

I've not had a bad meal and must say that the shrimp and grits is phenomenal. Gotta give a shout out to Sharon for her wonderful service.

It has been awhile since we've been here, but we're glad we came back. Sharon, our waitress took excellent care of us, recommending a great draft beer, and ensuring what we had was exactly correct. We started with Jalapeno Poppers, which were excellent. We then had a full rack of St. Louis style ribs, with red beans and rice and... More

Went for Sunday breakfast with family we were visiting. They go there every Friday and rave about the meals. If they are anything like Sunday breakfast I can see why they love it. I ate so much I didn't need to eat for the rest of the day! Waitress couldn't do enough for us. Outstanding - don't judge a book... More

I have been here about Five times and it is consistently good for lunch and dinner. The prices are very good. There's a nice variety of food and the service is good. I didn't want to write a review because I wanted to keep this place a secret. My only suggestion is that lunch be served earlier on weekends.

I also had broccoli with hollandaise and their marinated cucumbers. It was so good that I came back this morning for brunch. I had the... More

Superb food, quickly served by very friendly staff. Had the tuna steak, calamari, and a Greek salad. We keep coming back through the years when in Virginia Beach because the food is excellent and very reasonable. Nothing fancy but well worth a visit for excellent seafood.

My husband and I visited this place on a Thursday night while vacationing in Virginia Beach. We walked there from our hotel on the boardwalk, mainly because we had an Entertainment coupon. The building was formerly an icehouse and had been a restaurant for a hundred years. Once seated, it was apparent that everyone else in the small, busy place... More

Icehouse restaurant is about six blocks west of the ocean front on the southern end of the boardwalk. It is on Norfolk Avenue. I think Norfolk Ave is 9th Street near the boardwalk. Icehouse is known for its ribs. Stay with the ribs. They are meaty and juicy with a nice barbecue sauce on them. Also, we ordered the filet... More
