Although I haven't been recently, I know from friends that the Icehouse has always stayed true to form with great drinks, great service, and great people. I look forward to going up there soon to try their brunch, which my best friend Carroll raves about. See ya then, Woody! --Nina
For those of us who have lived in Summerville for a while and have dealt with the loud, crowded, sometimes obnoxious watering holes that have passed and, unfortunately for some, stuck around (ie. chain restaurants/sports bars where Summerville's finest men gulp their Bud Light draft while sifting through the endless amounts of mini’s and only the classiest of ladies in said mini’s try to pick through the selection of beef in too tight shirts to score a free drink), this Park Circle-originated gem is a more than welcome change of venue for us “simple folk” who just like to drink a good pint and relax amongst friends (and actually be able to hear the conversation). The food is excellent, varying between your normal bar fare to Irish dishes to fully packed lunch specials. Sunday brunch is always a treat with a wonderful series of takes on Eggs Benedict while sipping on a mimosa or “Man-mosa”. The staff is nothing but cordial, offering an atmosphere of “home away from home away from work”. So, whether you’re there to eat with family and friends, have some laughs over your favorite stout, pale ale, or mixture of the two, or just sit at the bar watching the game with Jason (and occasionally Spence), Madra Rua BC is sure to satisfy your palate. And if not, well, Buffalo Wild Wings is about five minutes away, always ready to have you stand and hope that no one knocks into you and spills your beer in a weak attempt to touch your ass.
