Drinking your favorite refreshment is only half the focus of the pub, British style-pub entertainment will be available to patrons. Games like snooker, bar billiards, steel tipped darts, dominoes, Shove a Penny, and Shut the Box.
If an English pub-style meal is what you crave, then the Ice House Pub should be your dining destination. With a full British themed menu of such staples as Fish ‘n Chips, Cottage Pie, Bangers and Mash and the American favorites Cheese Burgers, Steak Sandwiches and Giant Salads.
Built in the 1890s, the structure was used as an ice plant for the fishing industry. Over the years, it has changed owners and businesses. For a while, it had sat empty. Hurricane Charley all but destroyed the building when it tore the roof off and the south wall collapsed, but the building’s owner’s refused to demolish this South Florida landmark pledging to rebuild it and they did.
The Ice House Pub is truly a uniquely British destination steeped in South Florida history that everyone should plan to visit.
