A word from The Ice House Bar and Restaurant
Entering our sixth season, Ice House Restaurant and Bar is emerging as the option of choice for "down the shore" dining and relaxing. The dining room is perfect for parties of all sizes, two to twenty or more! Our kitchen staff prides itself in creatively preparing the freshest seafood and finest steaks in a comfortable and contemporary setting. Our Deck is a great alternative if you're only in the mood for appetizers and/or a sandwich while enjoying the view overlooking Otten's Harbor.
Whether it's relaxing bay views on the Deck or dinner in the air-conditioned upscale dining room, Ice House has something for the whole family, aged two to ninety-two.
We are open seasonally, Mid-May thru Mid-October. Be sure to take the elevator up to the Deck at the Ice House for awesome views and fabulous sunsets overlooking Otten's Harbor!

Diner Reviews
  • "Food was great, especially the crab cakes. Wine list was decent and the prices were reasonable. Didn't know about the 5pm to 6pm early bird special but it was a pleasant surprise. The icehouse wedge was good as well as the crab and corn soup. Desserts were great too! We will definitely be back."

  • "My wife an I were hoping to have dinner on the deck but the deck was over run by a very large group so we were forced to use the dining room. The dining room menu was a little more pricy than the deck and we felt to stuffy. We were hoping for a more casual experience."

  • "We stumbled upon this place and ate the first night at the indoor part. Excellent seafood which is fresh from across the street at the seafood market. Great martini's. Waitress was very good. I have a gluten allergy and they were very accommodating. We loved it so much we went back the following night and ate at the outdoor part upstairs Live music beautiful view of the bay. Food is more casual upstairs. Great burgers and yummy appetizers. Mojitos are very good."

  • "The yellow fin tuna was a very nice piece of seafood, and the soy sauce that accompanied it was very tasty. It was probably cooked about a minute too long. The Fishermans stew was thoroughly enjoyed by tow of our party members. Highly recommend it. All of the seafood appeared to be very fresh, unlike some other restaurants in the area. While we dine inside, there is a nice open-air deck that serves sandwiches and the like upstaris, but we opted for entrees in the more formal indoor setting. The Huckleberry Lemonade was a very refreshing drink, and the souvenir glass a nice touch."

  • "We had been there last year during Restaurant Week and had an entirely different experience than this time. This year, the service was indifferent. The waitress needs to learn a phrase other than "no problem" which she repeated at least 20 times. When I asked for water, she did not inquire whether others at the table wanted some. Our cocktail drinks sat on the table, without any request whether we wanted them replenished. The noise level was loud, making it difficult to hear our dining partners across the table. The food, however, was just as good as last year, including the bacon wrapped scallops, the salads, and the steak, crab and mahi mahi."

  • "The Ice House is without a doubt in the top restaurants in the area. We eat out four nights a week and very few have food like the Ice House."

  • "The Ice house never disappoints. The food is always great and the staff friendly. At the shore most reatuarants do not take reservations but the Ice House does. It's so nice after a long day in the sun to not have to wait an hour for a table. "

  • "I can't say a bad word about the food or service. Our waitress was a trainee and probably gave us the best service we ever had at the Ice House. All course were delicious and piping hot. the crabcakes are the best in Wildwood !"

  • "We went on a "restaurant night" and found both the portions and the quality to be very good. Scallops (4) wrapped in bacon with a dipping sauce were very sweet, tender and made for a delicious appetizer. Corn and Crab bisque did not have much crab meat, but was tasty nonetheless. My Filet Oscar came with a very tender filet, and a generous portion of very sweet lump crabmeat. I'm not a big dessert person, and the desserts here were just okay. However, the rest of the meal made up for this. The only negative was the noise level as there isn't much to soften the sounds from other tables."

  • "I went here with my wife and another couple. After reading other reviews we were excited to go and eat dinner on their deck, unfortunately the deck only serves appetizers. After being seated it took almost fifteen minutes for our waitress to take our drink order and the rest of the night took just as long. We sat in the restaurant for over 2 1/2 hours to complete dinner. The only saving grace was that the food was amazing. I believe that with better staffing the experience would have been much better."

  • "Service was slow. Waited about 20 minutes for drinks, never received the water I ordered, total time there for dinner, over 2 hours. Food was average to bland, nothing spectacular."

  • "Unfortunately. We choose to eat inside on a Tuesday evening. Because we preferred the That menu over the hopping , happy hour, outdoor roof venue. We were the sole diners indoors. Upstairs on the deck over looking the marina was mobbed. Beers 2$. Well drinks 5$! Our meal was delicious. Service excellent."

  • "We went with a group of 11, including children, and the staff was very attentive, the food was excellent and they take great precaution for people with allergies. When in the Wildwood, NJ area, I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Appetizers- Average -Bruschetta was good, would have been better if better bread had been used. Salad- Cesar Salad - excellent Drinks - Special Berry and Absolut sounded better than it tasted. Meals - Fishermans Stew - portion very large, taste was very fulfilling - Prime Rib was special on sheet handed to us; however once ordered was told no longer available. Filet was nice piece of meat, but not cooked evenly. Right side cooked more than left; not fault of chef, rather faulty cooking surface."

  • "There are no prices for drinks on the menus. Iced teas and sodas are $2.50 each. When we got the bill, we were charged for each refill we ordered. I contacted the restaurant afterwards and they stated that they do not advertise the price of their drinks and nowhere does it state "free refills" so I should have realized there were no free refills. So just know this before you go in, sit on the deck on a hot, sunny day, and order a bunch of drink. It adds up quickly."

  • "The place seemed interesting online, but was average at best. On a Sat during beach season, the place was notably empty. There were two large families, with kids running around, and that probably detracted from our experience, but not the restaurant's fault. The calarmari and caprese salad were very good. The crab cake was more filling than crab and the filet was overcooked. I decided not to send it back, because in a restaurant I do not know, I am always a little reluctant to do that. Instead, I ate half and the server was nice enough to have our bill reduced a bit. Oddly enough, I was looking forward to another drink and/or dessert, but after she retrieved our entrees and discussed the overcooked meat, she promptly brought our check"

  • "My husband and I recently drove down from Ocean City, NJ to have dinner at The Ice House. It was well worth the drive! We had a delicious dinner.......I started with the Crab-tini appetizer and it was sooooooo good, large lumps of fresh crab with a yummy mango salsa. For dinner I had the Filet Mignon, Oscar. The steak was cooked perfectly, tender and flavorful with a delicious bearnaise sauce with large, plentiful jumbo lump crab meat. I finished my meal with the Chocolate lava cake, amazing! The waitstaff are friendly and attentive and made some good recommendations. We had a great meal and a great evening, Thank you!"

  • "The food was delicious. Several times we had ordered a desert and the sever came back and told us they were sold out. This was 7pm, she should have known about it prior to us ordering. Then we were charged for the deserts we did not get. Overall the meal was great but a little noisy, large table with kids."

  • "We go maybe 1 or 2 times per year. The food is always excellent and very reasonable for the quality. I had a request to have a different side from another dish and the waitress took care of it. Price fixed menu till 6 pm was great although that was not why we went. Waitstaff was outstanding with just the right amount of attention. Highly recommend you will not be disappointed."
