What You'll Get
Sociologists have dubbed America a melting pot because of its amalgamation of cultures and the fact that its landmass is the exact shape of a witch's cauldron. Sample a bubbling pot of American fare with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of upscale American fare at Icehouse.
The Icehouse's enormous loft-style dining area and expansive deck invite diners to linger and relax while noshing eclectic upscale American cuisine. A plate of mojito grilled-chicken tacos ($9) infuses a Southwestern staple with a dash of tangy lime, and a smokehouse bakes rich grilled wings ($5.50 for six) cooled with seven sauces, including chipotle, hot chili garlic, and ranch. Test the tenderness of a half-rack of ribs ($11) by seeing whether it falls off the bone after being hummed the entire discography of Otis Redding. Lighter options include a spread of sandwiches, such as the curry chicken salad ($9) sprinkled with toasted almonds and the grilled salmon BLT ($10) seasoned with a spread of basil aioli. A stack of oven-baked pizzas houses both traditional margheritas ($11 for 14") and creative combinations such as the Castro pizza ($12 for 14"), topped with black beans, zesty chicken, a sprinkling of cilantro, and sweet roasted peppers, all rolled into a giant cigar leaf.
The posh interior of Icehouse channels the modern swagger of a loft, with wide windows, high ceilings, and exposed brick. A huge outdoor patio shields diners from the sun with an artful canopy, and indoor eaters are entertained by a billiards loft and 20 flat-screen televisions. Though not included in this Groupon, a selection of more than 200 craft beers engages taste buds and inspires extended renditions of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall."
Dark woods punctuated by electric-blue accents decorate the inside of Icehouse, where diners pair casual American classics with one of more than 200 beers. Throughout the space, complimentary WiFi and 20 flat-screen televisions and complimentary WiFi keep diners informed on the latest game scores, while upstairs a billiards loft entertains them during commercials. On nice nights, the crowd heads outside to the 100-seat covered patio for Carolina pulled pork sandwiches, sampler platters of sliders, and wings in one of seven sauces.
