The first Waterloo Ice House opened its doors on Congress Avenue in 1976. It was a casual neighborhood gathering spot serving hot, handmade meals & ice cold beer for an eclectic mix of Austin business people, students, artists & musicians. Not much has changed since our opening over 40 years ago. Waterloo Ice House still embodies that Hill Country spirit of gathering with friends & family for a cold beer & spending time together eating, laughing, & talking.
