My wife and I visited on a cold, windy day and had a warm, wonderful dining experience. The crab dip with homemade chips and toasted bread was very good, but the standout was the shrimp platter we shared. A few times in my life, I have had friends shell, devein, bread and flash fry fresh shrimp right out of the water. It takes time and expertise to get the breading light and the shrimp briefly cooked to a non-greasy, golden, crispy glow. My hat’s off to these folks – they know how to do it right. Try all the delectable goodies on the menu, but make sure you order some of their fried shrimp. I’m already looking forward to my next trip to the Icehouse!
