Their co-owner was featured on David Letterman “Stupid Human Tricks” for his amazing can-crushing moves

The Ice House is a must-do with many entertaining quirks (like allowing patrons to smash their bottles under the dock) if you are down with a roadhouse-style experience. Host-recommended for unique local attractions.
