Fun atmosphere with live music. You could still talk, music wasn’t really loud. Food good quality . Service was nice, but tough on her because we were upstairs & the server had to go up & down. I. E. She couldn’t get to our table as often as we or her would have liked.

We went for brunch to hear Corn Bread Harris. The music was wonderful. I ordered duck eggs
And a biscuit. The eggs were unfortunately cold when served even though they tasted good. The biscuit was amazing.

Our dinner at Icehouse was perfect. The live music was relaxing and not overbearing, providing a pleasant atmosphere, the food and cocktails delicious. A HUGE thank you to our server Joel, who helped us out greatly. He was prompt and kind and made the night comfortable and easy. Well done to the bar team and kitchen crew as well, couldn’t have been happier!!

The food was beyond outstanding and given the quality of ingredients, presentation, and unique flavor profile, worth the price. Having live music being played while eating really solidified it as one of the most romantic dates I've ever taken someone on. Just a fun overall vibe and I can't wait to return.

Had a wonderful dinner, service was very good but it was a pretty loud crowd. I will assume it was due to perhaps a large holiday gathering happening at the time. I would try it again at a different time of year. Nice blues music!

While most patrons flock to the Icehouse for their entertainment, which is great btw, we frequent them because of their most wonderful cuisine. Truly, I have never experienced a parsnip as magnificent as those we are Sunday night! Their creative cocktails are also a pleasant experience.

We visited Icehouse for a dinner date before watching a show at the Guthrie. The service was excellent from beginning to end. There is a coat check at the entrance which was very nice. The ambiance is really nice, they have a stage within the building for performances and music which is very fun to pair music with dinner. The menu has something for everyone and the food is very nicely presented. I highly recommend checking Icehouse out!

Excellent food especially the salmon and the creme brulee. The waitress was very accomodating as we had to get to a concert within an hour 15 minutes. The food still took a while to come out, so I wouldnt recommend it for a quick bite.

Food for meat-eaters was excellent. A little lacking for paleo/vegans.

Waiter was efficient but Elizabethan voice affectation a bit pretentious.

Great spot to catch up with a long-time friend. He was impressed by the energy and vibe, we had a big comfy booth in the main room. We came for cocktails and stayed for dinner. The server was friendly knowledgeable and prompt with service. I expected bigger portions for the $28 price tag, but the meal was delicious.

We reserved a table ahead of time. It seemed a little weird we were pushed to the back of the dining area away from the music when we reserved a table. I thought we should have been placed near the music as there were plenty of open tables.

We came to celebrate birthdays and stayed for a great time. The Saturday brunch menu accompanied by great music. The place is wonderful, the staff was very attentive, and the creative drink menu was amazing. The menu was a simple as bacon and eggs and as complex as a ten course tasting menu. I'm already hoping to be back soon.

Great music and great vibe. Went with friends and sat close enough to stage to enjoy the music but far enough to enjoy conversation. Server was right on with recommendations for food. The menu was creative and so creative I was nervous. They pulled off every dish. (The 4 of us shared everything) We will definitely go back.

Reservation wasn't ready on my arrival, but they let me hang out in the live music area while I waiting which normally requires a cover charge so I'll allow it.

They parked us at literally the smallest table in the dining area, which struck me as more humorous than inconvenient.

Wait staff was very attentive even though we indicated we were only having drinks.

I like that they use larger ice cubes so my Jameson didn't get watered down.

Really nice atmosphere, very chill. Music was good too. Would visit again.

Disclaimer: I didn't eat the food, but the menu looked really enticing.

Went to hear the band the was playing over Sunday Brunch. Music great of course. I had "special dietary requests" and they were happy to assist. My wait staff was attentive, and pleasant. Enjoyed the other patrons there for Brunch and for the music. I will be going again, even if it is not a Band I know (yet).

Been to Icehouse several times. Service is outstanding with very knowledgeable servers. Food and drinks fun and inventive. With a reservation, we were disappointed to be seated in back area away from the band even though several tables appeared to be available. Reason we go to Icehouse is for the live entertainment. If you go, specify where you want to sit...don’t assume reservations will get you the good seats.

As a wheelchair user, I was very pleased to have been given a table right up by the stage, rather than being relegated to an obscure corner. Restaurants don't always treat 'chair people well, but The Icehouse was accommodating without being obtrusive. I wish, though, the waitress would have told me that the burger would be raw-like in the center - I would have asked for medium grilled meat. A good experience and I would return.
