The Icehouse's spice-slinging chefs pair a diverse menu of zesty, Cajun-inspired dishes with over 100 varieties of sudsy brews. Four flavors of house Yukon Gold potato chips or gravy-covered fried green tomatoes kick-start meals before entrees such as the 12-ounce fresh-cut house rib eye slide into mouths greased with delicious house-made steak sauce. A Cajun-style po boy pairs a spicy remoulade with a choice of fried shrimp or crayfish, a decision that proves as difficult as deciding which of 100 beers to quaff or which variety of hamburger would make the best mayor. Inside the old-school alehouse, exposed brick walls surround diners playing darts and foosball or slowly disassembling a microphone onstage on Sunday open mic nights.
The Red Pepper is an Italian eatery with rich roots. Owner Fred White first learned the ropes of the restaurant business at his grandmother's Italian restaurant in Rochester, New York, mastering the art of crafting sweets and savories from fresh ingredients such as tomatoes, basil, and ricotta cheese. He went on to open lauded eateries across the country, then settled with his family in the Charleston area and opened The Red Pepper in Summerville. Here, locals relish hoagies, pizzas, and other sumptuous New York?style Italian food. Red umbrellas and baskets of flowers dot an outdoor patio, drawing diners into the fresh air for alfresco meals and drinks.
