So sad that it is closing. Where will the live music go to? Where will all the customers go?

Ice House Cafe' and Oyster Bar has been a staple in the Herndon area for a long time. Always great food, service, wine & beer selections. I've had a lot of business and casual meals there and have never been disappointed.

Did not have the appetizer we ordered. Took 15 minutes to get a drink from the bar. The restaurant was empty when we arrived. They sat a table of 4 right next to us that were very loud. Entrees were served at different paces. Had to wait. The best thing about the evening was the chowder and the oysters

We booked a table for nine through the website and called ahead to make sure they received it. When we got there, it took 30 minutes to get drinks (the waiter was also the bartender). We also ordered 4 appetizers along with the drinks and only received 2 of them after waiting 45 minutes. We didn't bother ordering entrees, went to Jimmy's across the street instead. This place is nothing like the website, the restaurant is showing it's age - falling apart in places and the walls are covered in taxidermy. Of the drinks we did receive, 2 of them had fruit flies floating in them. Incredibly disappointing, stay away!

I love the Ice House. Heartbroken that it is closing at the end of the year. Don’t miss a visit before they go.

Food and service once seated were very good. Had an 8:30 reservation. Arrived at 8:30 and had to wait 15+ minutes (standing at/in the front door) for a table. Big crowd for the jazz that Saturday night made the room extra loud.

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.

Great neighborhood historic vibe with great music and service. Food was tasty and tried to be sexy but missed the mark a little on presentation but all and all decent.

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.

The meals were both unique and outstanding. The chef has a real knack for mixing flavors to bring cuisine sensation to the table. The service was immaculate, contributing to the dining experience. personally I could do without then stuffed animal heads...they did not enhance the ambiance!

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.
