My husband and I ordered oxtails for our entree. The meat was tender just not seasoned well. A little on the bland side. The rice and peas were mushy. Maybe just a bad night for the chef.
The drinks were tasty and the live music a nice touch.

My party was very late with only 3 out 8 arriving on time. The kitchen was soon closing but they were kind enough to take 2 more orders since we were on the way. Once we finally got there, the atmosphere was bubbly almost homey. We had clear view of the kitchen where the chefs were cooking and dancing and sheer having fun while playing the most beautiful looking food...I loved that the most. The DJ was stellar...the music was old with new with timeless with life! You definitely couldn't help but dance....scanning the room you see waitresses and patrons dancing, singing, and having fun while eating with their fingers because the food was that good. I truly regretted that the birthday girl was not well and we were late because my party did enjoy it even though we had a short stay. The only down side is that those in our party that came late couldn't order food or drinks and the restaurant was still packed with patrons eating, dancing and having fun--horribly tempting. Apart from that the service we did receive was not bad we got our meals with no cutlery and one of the guests ordered on time and her food was not prepared (the waitress did try to correct her with a dish she could prepare for her-this was appreciated). We will definitely come back and on time!

Great ambiance!!! The food was great too. However, the service, especially the bartenders seemed to be overwhelmed and needed some assistance.

Fish and grits meal was great. Wings are delicious. The honeysuckle mimosas are good. Our server Dee was very attentive and nice. They need to control the fruit flies however.

I was impressed with the food, portions and taste. The music was a little too loud. Whenever you feel like you have to tell to be heard, that's not good. Overall, I enjoyed my experience. I will definitely go back.

I really enjoyed Ms Icey’s Kitchen. The atmosphere was great. From the outside I thought it was going to be small on the inside. I was very pleasantly surprised when I walked in. There was a nice amount of space in the restaurant. I ordered the chicken and waffles. It was delicious. No chicken strips here. Chicken legs and thighs, yum. Our server was friendly and helpful with menu selections. I just wish there were more options on the menu.

Fun for Sunday brunch. I have been twice. The first time I had the jerk lamb which was delicious. Second time I had the jerk steak which was just ok. It was not a good cut of steak and had a lot of fat and gristle. The mimosas are delightful

Hostess stand was my first impression. Rude host, made reservations and still waited 30 mins. Either there wasnt air conditioning or the open patio doors allowed the cold out to flow out and the flies to come in. Our mimosa's we delivered and placed on the number without explaining which one was original or honey suckle (best option). The drinks were great. The food was great but atmosphere created by the employees will keep me from returning.

I’ve been here a couple times and I try to get thee before the dj does on Sunday because you find yourself screaming to speak to your guest. But other than that the experience is always a great one. I’ve been here with my god father, girlfriends, boyfriend and his family. All on different occasions and no one is ever disappointed.

Made 11am reservations, and the door was locked. My friends and I sat on the outside patio of a nearby eatery, just a few steps from the front door, and we waited for someone to open the door. After waiting 20 minutes, still no one and door still locked. A friend finally knocks on the door several times, and the host/server opens it casually saying “Oh yes we’re open; we just forgot to unlock the door.”

Say what? After 20+ minutes have gone by, no restaurant staff realized the front door is locked. We still contemplated staying until the host/server couldn’t even find lunch menus after opening several drawers.

This was my second time visiting in attempts to give this restaurant a second chance, but this was a complete fail. I won’t return, nor will I recommend this venue to anyone else.

I LOVE Ms. Icey’s. It is definitely a fun place, where you will have great food, great music, great service and can even get up and dance if you’d like. The DJ gives you a wide range of music across all eras. You get hip hop, r&b, pop and whatever flows well.

The folks who visit Icey’s are also fun, open, accepting and like family. If your tables gets up to dance, the other tables around are likely to join and then continue conversing throughout the meal. You can also sit outside or have time to yourself, if you’d like.

I highly recommend that anyone looking for a great atmosphere and a great time stop by!

Coming from NYC we can be picky. However, my BF and I throughly enjoyed the food and drinks. Nutcrackers in NYC come in the little "quarter water" bottles and thats how it was served. Thanks for bringing a lil NYC to ATL 😁😁😁

Love this spot! I bring all my friends and family here when they come to visit. Great food and service. Love the DJ and music but the music Saturday was super loud. We loved the music but we had to scream and repeat stuff because we couldn’t hear over the music. Please keep the DJ and music just maybe turn it down a little so customers can talk and enjoy each other

This was our first visit to Ms. Icey's and it was an excellent choice. We started with the Red Lemonade and a NYC Nutcracker for drinks. Then we moved onto the Skillet Cornbread, the Fried BBQ Shrimp, and the Coconut Curry Snapper.

The hands down favorite was the Skillet Cornbread, but everything there was also excellent. The service was also attentive and friendly (her name was "D"). The only real complaint I would have is that their beer selection was quite limited and none of their beers were draft. However, the cocktails were creative and great for starting the evening.

This was my 2nd time at Ms Icey’s - the occasion was Fathers Day. We were late for the reservation, yet they still accommodated us. Very nice!
The strip Club wings were again a winner; however the cornbread hit a flat note this time. It was so crumbly you couldn’t eat it with your fingers or a fork.
The chicken and waffles was a gorgeous dish, and generously portioned.
My REAL issue was the a/c, it clearly wasn’t working. The server assured me it was on, but since it was my 2nd time I knew it wasn’t. Several other tables I talked to said the same thing. I brought my fiancé here, and he was sweating so profusely. Poor guy
