A wonderful dining and music experience. So sad that they are closing their doors at the end of the year after more than 40 years of service

As we arrived I was thinking how great it is that a fun restaurant with a unique interior and live music has survived the latest surge in redevelopment. we had a great meal - DUCK (I've been disappointed so many times, but they do a very good duck) and shrimp and grits. the band was fun and of course the walrus, bear, deer looked on. at the end of the meal, the waiter told us that they were closing the end of the year - as the rent had doubled .... SO anyone who wants to check out this really unique and fun place with live music and good food and choices of beer - instead of a chain restaurant, please go !! also if anyone knows somebody really rich who can buy out the owner and keep them there it would be a great service to Herndon.

I always enjoy Ice House Cafe, particular to celebrate special occasions. I was saddened recently to hear after 4 decades the owners will be closing this Town of Herndon gem at the end of 2018.

The seafood was delicious, and cooked to perfection. We’ve lived nearby for years and only recently discovered this gem. Will definitely be back for another date night!

They either didn’t have enough servers or cooks therefore it took some time to get our food. Live band very good. Quality of food okay but I would give it another try.

Was in town for a business trip and I always try to find local places to dine (as opposed to chain restaurants).
Ice House came up in my search and the menu and reviews caught my attention.
Our meals were delicious and fresh. We ordered the raw oysters and they are great.
The decor was interesting. It made me feel like I was in the Mid West instead of Virginia.
The only negative/disappointment was that my cocktail drink was in a small glass and pretty diluted from all the ice for the price they charged (I ordered the very old fashion).
If in Herndon again I would go back.

Excellent meal! Friendly service and wonderful ambience. Jazz combo was terrific! Kitchen was a little overloaded on this busy night, slowing down service a bit, but it was nice to see such a fine local eatery doing so well.

Good food and music. Dinner service was unusually slow this time probably due to possible shortstaffing in the kitchen. One cold evening(like last Friday), it would be best to switch off the fan in the main room.

Dinner out with friends to celebrate a birthday. Tuesday night so it was quiet in the restaurant but why does that sometimes lead to a bad experience? Does the staff get lazy because they don’t have enough to go? Service was great but food was subpar. My seafood salad was supposed to be on wilted lettuce - it was raw, untouched a cooktop lettuce. My friends salad was also average. Other friend said her chicken dish was so-so and over cooked. Disappointing overall.

Not our best experience this time. 3 guests ordered the Halibut special and after 15 minutes we were told only 1 was available. The one that got it was delivered rainbow trout. And, lastly we were overcharged $75 on our bill, which included 3 halibut meals we never got and an extra glass of wine.

Noticed there was no maitre d at the restaurant. We’ve been there many times and brought 4 friends with us this time to celebrate a birthday. Unfortunately, the experience was Not Up to Par.

Ice House is an awesome place. The food was delicious (rockfish special) and I love the atmosphere. The band that played was just so good. We had a terrific waiter (Will) and we loved everything about the evening. I am anxious to go back again soon.

My wife and I were down in the Chantilly area visiting our daughter and treated her, her boyfriend and his parents to dinner here based on restaurants reviews and that it has existed forever. Reservations were set for 6:30 pm and we were seated immediately upon arrival toward the back of the restaurant on my request because there is live music on Saturday nights and its a small place. The music was great but as other reviews mention quite loud so keep that in mind if you go.
The food was very good, well prepared and presented though the crab on the halibut was slightly salty. Outside of that everyone was super impressed and it has now been added to there list of go to restaurants. Oh, I can't forget to mention that the fresh raw oysters from the bay were phenomenal, simply the best I have ever had. They were firm, perfectly chilled and clean in flavor, a must if you like raw oysters.

The service was outstanding, but the food was not in the same category. My crabcakes were OK, my friend's shrimp was OK. OK is not good enough to justify a return visit.

They have traditional jazz combos on Friday and Saturday night which increases the noise level, The noise level is not high on weekdays. It was still possible to converse.

Ice House Café is a great local place to listen to jazz music. The food was excellent and the music was fantastic. I had their special which was a halibut dish and my husband had the jambalaya. Both were very good. We will definitely be back.

We went to Ice House Cafe to celebrate a birthday and listen to some live jazz. We had a lovely evening! We sat in the back room, away from the bar and the band, and that was the perfect location for both hearing the music and being able to converse. It's a very small place, so the music would have been overpowering further up toward the stage. We had the seafood special that night, monkfish with crab meat, and it was delicious. The server was attentive and friendly, and made a very good wine recommendation that worked with the fish very well. We enjoyed our visit and hope to be back soon.

Henry was our server and explained everything very well. The food was good. There was a small bone in my duck salad. I mentioned this and received an apology. We were celebrating our anniversary and came here because this was the location of our first date 34 years ago; however, nothing was offered to us for our anniversary. This was a little disappointing.

And unexpected pleasure

I had never heard of the restaurant but was very pleased a friend invited me to meet for a business lunch. The atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable for a business lunch. It’s easy to get to and parking was easy. I work in Tysons corner and this was about 20 minutes away.

I had the clam chowder and the pan sautéed salmon special.The chowder was excellent and I was impressed with the salmon. It was sautéed in real butter and when I say real butter I mean lots of it and although it was more calories than I should have a business lunch it is one of the tastiest lunches I’ve had in a while.

I think I’ll try for dinner

My wife selected this restaurant for Mother's Day since the menu looked great and we hadn't been here before. We had a 6 PM reservation so we didn't expect that three of the dishes on the menu would not be available (duck, chicken and another). So I ordered the pork chop, which showed up seared on the outside and fully purple on the inside (uncooked). My wife's bourbon prawns were actually large (not jumbo) shrimp with the same super spicy sauce from the Thai beef skewers dumped on top. Not sure what was "bourbon" about the dish. She passed that to me to eat since she couldn't eat it. Oh, and 3 of the shrimp were barely cooked. My daughter's chicken strip things could barely be chewed threw with teeth, pretty gross. My son's jambalaya, excellent. The Thai beef skewers, very good. Clearly they were understaffed (2 servers) and they appeared to be pretty worn down from the day. The bus boy was very nice and apologetic for the poor food and he brought my wife a rose, which was an appreciated exit to the dinner. I'm sure, based on other reviews, this was just a way off experience we had and we may possibly consider giving it another chance in the future. We picked up wings on the way home and watched the Caps game....better end to the day.

We had a change of plans and got reservations 2 days before for Mother’s Day Brunch for 7 people. It was just perfect. The table was in a room with only one other party, service was great, and the food was delicious. We had mimosas, Eggs Benedict with crabmeat and Cajun hollandaise, omelet with shrimp, and French toast with bacon. They even gave my mom and I each a rose.

The Ice House is a great place to get away and I love the owners and the food. The music on Saturday night was unbearable. It was so loud that you could not speak with the person sitting next to you, and we were in the back room. I understand the weekend music, but there is no reason for the music to be so loud in such a small place. I may stay away for dinner from now on and just stick to lunch and nights when there is no music.
