Food was great as expected since they serve KC Joes BBQ. The Frose and Top Shelf Marg were very good!

Everything was great but I didn’t realize that all BBQ came from Joe’s KC.

We had a group of friends that got together in the midst of a winter storm. The restaurant likely wasn't as busy as normal, so I can't comment on the noise level. It's a big open space with easy break-away areas for groups, plenty of sharp easy view TVs to catch the games, our service was great and the food was amazing. We'll be back!!

Not what I expected for the occasion but my pork tacos were good! And I was told my companions salad was good, it was quite large.
Also did not get hightop seating I requested in the reservation.

I made a reservation for 7pm for Saturday night, about a week beforehand. My husband and I were flying in to watch the Vikings play the Chiefs the next day. We got there at about 6:15pm and checked in hoping we might be able to get seated a little before our reservation. We were given a buzzer and began to wait. We didn’t get seated until 7:45p. I don’t even think they were honoring reservations since a couple who came in after us were seated before us. What’s the point of making a reservation? I think we would have gotten seated earlier if we hadn’t mentioned the reservation. Food was excellent and server was even better. Disappointed we had to wait 45 minutes after our reservation time.

Food came out so fast! Incredible considering how busy they were. Just wish bar space had more room to walk through. You can’t even walk to go to the restroom without rubbing across everyone as your squeezing through the crowds!

But fun place with fun vibe and they take reservations!

We had a gathering to say goodbye to one of our coworkers. We all liked him and we didn't want him to leave, but we wished him well on his future endeavors. As a result, where we ate was very important to us. We wanted it to be something special, to be memorable, in short, something special.
Well, we just sat down and ordered right off the menu. The food was great. What a selection. We had 12 in our group and there was something for everyone. I mean there wasn't one of us who had to compromise on our order, there was something special for each of us.
Even though we had to say goodbye to him, he left us with a box of leftovers because the portions were so generous. If you want a special meal, a great time at a great restaurant, the Ice House is the place to go!!!!

Enjoyed Joe’s KC BBQ when the Joe’s KC locations were closed. We had a great time and our waiter was great! Btw-the food was EXACTLY what you would expect from Joe’s KC. Cheers!

We came at a busy time. They got us in, in surprisingly good time. The food was scrumptious, my drink was solid, and our waitress was good. Definitely a great place to stop, treat the tastebuds, and fill the tummy.

Ate here on a Sunday for lunch. Not crowded at all. Seated and served quickly. Great food but wish the selection was a little bigger- more like parent restaurant (Joe’s). Nice environment, Attempted to validate garage parking ticket but it didn’t work. Will definitely be back!

Very disappointed in the bar-b-que!! The burnt ends were very under cooked and easily 50% fat. Service was appreciated, but couldn’t overcome the meal.

Got the bbq nachos. The chip to topping ratio was a little chip heavy. The pork tacos would be better with pulled pork. Everything else table had was very good. Service was very solid. Nice to have “Joe’s” but with some other options. Tables comfortably spaced out so didn’t feel cramped even though it was plenty busy.
