Yes, it's Freaking Open. Geez.

So I noticed over the last few weeks, I'm getting tons of hits on my blog from people going to Google or wherever and searching for "Icehouse Bentonville." So to all of you folks finding this blog who are looking for the Icehouse, I have a special message just for you:

The Ice House of Bentonville is located on SE 5th Street in Bentonville between D and E Streets, easily reached from SE J Street if you're coming from 540 or Rogers, and easily accessible from the Bentonville Square by taking Main Street south out of the square, turning left on SE 3rd Street, and making a right on SE D Street. Can't miss it after that. For the geographically challenged, I've provided a link to a Google Map.

They are usually open at 6 p.m., 7 days a week, with lunches to follow soon. They close at midnight M-Th, 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 11 p.m. Sunday night.

The food ranges from tasty burgers and sandwiches for 6 or 7 bucks, up to steaks for 25 bucks, so there's a little of everything. There's about 10 beers on tap. The place is HUGE, with four distinct rooms. Two are dinings rooms, one with its own bar. There's a huge room at the other end with a stage for live music, usually Friday and Saturday right now. And next to that room is the main bar, with pool tables, a waterfall behind the bar, an ice surface built into the bar, and cool decor.

Anyway, it's like no place anywhere around here, Fayetteville included, so be sure to check it out.
