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 came in on a Saturday night and sat at the bar with all the locals. Everyone was friendly and the booze were cheap! I ordered the prime rib rare and it came out PERFECTLY!! 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

visiting from the UK to Virginia Beach on our road trip of Eastern States. Arrived in pouring rain, had no clue where to have dinner. Picked up leaflet in hotel reception which mentioned the Icehouse. As it was not too far, we thought we would try it. Don't be put off by the humble look outside. The food is delicious... More

I don't normally put French Onion Soup in the title of a review but this place has some of the best we have ever had. Also was there on the night of the prime rib special and we both succumbed. It was fantastic. The sides were perfect as well. My husband was even able to have a piece of key... More

Went for meatloaf Tuesday. You know the food is good when you're passing around forks and sharing food! Highly recommend this for locals or travelers.
