We went to IceHouse to hear a friend’s band play. The music was painfully loud. The service was really abysmal. It took forever to get anything. We ordered the mushroom flatbread, which was a horrible soggy mess served in a bowl! Wrap your head around flatbread in a bowl. The server brought one meal and fries we didn’t order, and our other two meals came out at least 20 minutes later. The guys said their burgers were “just ok.” Fries were great. I had salmon with the black garlic mayo, which was delicious.
Icehouse is one of our favorites! Finally tried the pastries plate this time (we had enough people to be able to almost finish them) and they were super delicious, especially that caramel bacon roll! Drinks and food were excellent as always.
The entryway is janky and crowded with a sliding door and curtain.
The food pricing is annoying. The only way to order food was to order a starter, a main dish, and a desert for $50. We are not big desert people, but we had to pay for it anyway.
Five main dishes were on the menu to choose from. Even with those few options they were out of the one my wife wanted, so she had to settle for something else.
About five minutes after taking our order our waiter came back to our table and said that their ordering system malfunctioned and that he would need to take our order again.
When it was time to order the desert that we were going to take home, they were out of my wife's first choice (again). Again there were only four or five desert choices, but somehow were out of one of them.
Always one of my favorite places to go. The pork belly Bahn MI blew my mind. Keep up the good work and I'll keep throwing money at you.
Ambiance for Valentine’s Day was perfect. The music was beautiful and the service was excellent! Food portions were just right. The quality and taste of the food was excellent! Will definitely be coming back again.
I made Valentines Resevations at the beginning of Januray and called to ask if there was going to be a full menu. They said yes. I called the week before and they said it would be a full menu plus a valentines day special. When we got there we were told no its a set menu and options we wanted weren't available. We left without eating and it was very disappointing that the staff clearly didn't have the right information. The price was fair for what they were offering but didn't want it and were told that wasn't going to be the only option. Thanks for ruining valentines day!
We booked a table for Valentine's day, something where we could see the stage but still have some privacy, we were 30 minutes late and were still seated immediately at an awesome table. Our server, Nora, was completely awesome. No complaints here!
We love Icehouse. Anniversary and Valentine’s Day spot!!
We didn't like being put next to a loud table of about a dozen women for a birthday party, when we were looking a chance to talk to each other. We weren't impressed with the Lobster Bisque to start, there was to much roasted veggies and not enough lobster or broth to compliment the dish. I liked the black garlic wings and the dessert was really good.
I do like the location and the set-up of Ice House but if you are looking to have a conversation with someone don't go here. Also the place is not for the picky eater.
There was a problem with our reservations, otherwise I would give a great review. Staff did their best to find seating for us, but the place was packed, so it took awhile. We had invited family and friends for the music-love the Broke Down Dollies. Will come back again.
Ice House is one of my favorite restaurants in the Twin Cities. It is also one of my favorite places to see live music. They feature great local bans, as well as touring musicians. They offer an eclectic mix of indie, folk, jazz, electronic, and hip hop. The food is simply to die for and they have an incredible selection of beers and cocktails. The ambience is second to none! If you are in Minneapolis, do yourself a for and check this place out!
Disappointing. We are from out of town and were told this was a great place to go. The menu was limited and the food was cold. Wasted one of our two nights.
We have enjoyed Icehouse in the evenings for their great cocktails and live music. We recently had a friend in town for the Super Bowl and decided to give their Sunday bruch a try. We were not at all disappointed with the choice. Service was outstanding, food was amazing and the atmosphere was truly authentic. Can't say enough good things about Icehouse.
The lobster bisque was an artful joke, everything else was good. The mushroom flatbread was excellent!
