Join us on Tofino’s historic Ice House waterfront patio, a place where you can watch the sun go down as you enjoy locally-caught, sustainable seafood. Our food is crafted with love and is a product of our beautiful environment. Watch as fishermen land fish and fill up on ice for the next catch. And the local wildlife might even put on a show for you too!

    Food was excellent and the portions were good. I like that the meal came with the sides . The ambiance was great. It was a lovely evening and there was outside seating if you wanted.

    Our server was terrible. He made the experience good rather than outstanding. Food was exceptional buy a poor service made it a frustrating and unpleqsant experience.

    We were visiting Tofino and the reviews for the Ice House were very good, so it was on our list to try. We were not disappointed. Despite having a reservation, the service staff basically ignored us for approx. 15 min. while we waited at the door. Once seated we waited for another 10 min. or more for someone to bring us menus. They were clearly understaffed for how busy they were that evening. Once we were on the radar, service improved and we enjoyed an amazing meal. The atmosphere was fun and upbeat. The sunset that particular evening was stunning, so all in all it was a very good choice.

    The restaurant is placed in the waterfront, and there is an amazing view to the sea. The food was excellent. We enjoyed our visit at the restaurant very much and can highly recommend a visit at Ice House Oyster Bar.

    Locally sourced foods, e.g. chanterelles, oysters and halibut, were such a welcomed change from the standard fare one finds at most restaurants. My only complaint was that the 8 ounce glass of wine for $19 was unexceptional and overpriced. My cocktail (a house specialty) was a much better choice.

    Great food, especially the fresh seafood platter. However, we did find the place quite cool with the door constantly opening to the outside patio.
