Always go with the “specials” - a thought that now needs rethinking. Our party of four split two with the fish dishes (one a special) and two with the steak special. Inedible is too harsh because some bites were taken (and downed with a gulp) but disappointing is surely too little description for this dining experience. The steaks both came way-undercooked, (medium-rare ordered, near raw served!) which could have been fixed with a few more minutes of heat had we asked - but the result would still have been a shoe-leather steak slathered in a taste smothering mushroom and red-wine sauce. And why would the kitchen think mashed potatoes would want a fried oyster on top of them? The fish dishes were said to be much better - one getting mild praise. The Ice House has been around a long time and hasn’t, till now, disappointed so three stars for institutional longevity... and fish entrees.

One of our favorite spots. Delicious French inspired cuisine Great place to get a steak, inventive salads, and oysters. The wait staff are always courteous and kind. A quiet place for lunch, fantastic dinner spot. Live music on the weekends.

Great food and service, consistently. Staff is courteous and the well prepared mix of seafood and meat, continues to bring us back again and again.

This place is truly a staple of the town of Herndon. I've taken my girlfriend on multiple dinner dates here. The food is superb, the service really is top notch and the best part is that in the evenings (maybe weekends only?) They have complimentary live jazz which really sets the mood and separates this place from other places. You really need to give this place a try, you won't regret it.
