Good tasting burgers and fries.

This is a busy place with good service so things go fast. My mom's favourite chip place in North Bay and now we know why. Poutine was awesome. I had a back bacon sandwich was also very good. We'll be back.

Great food, good service and fun atmosphere....they are licensed. Bonus, if you are staying at the Comfort Inn across the highway on Airport Road, then no driving is necessary!

Love eating at Ivan's, best burgers in town and my girls love the pogos. It's a great place to visit after cycling or skiing at nearby Laurentian, definitely hits the spot! The restaurant is wonderfully decorated and the service is speedy and friendly.

I've been eating at Ivan's since I was a teenager and I've always enjoyed it! I recently went after not going for awhile and I'm not sure if they switched owners or cooks but I ordered a classic poutine ( my Fav ) and it was horrible! The gravy is different, the curds are different , and the fries were... More

The food is average to good, service is alright but I wish they would transition to full service instead of order at the counter and then table service when ready.

The poutine... oh the poutine. It is wonderful. Order the family sized poutine (not for takeout) and you will be shocked at how much they give you. Just a giant plate. I hate a sandwich from Ivan's and I wasn't as impressed. It was ham&grilled cheese. I couldn't finish it, it wasn't my cup of tea.

Ivan's never disappoints, I can always rely on a great special and their delicious regular menu offerings. Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner Ivan's has something you will want. If you're looking for good home cooking type of food this is your place.

took my g'daughter there at her request. Food is always good here- freshly cooked, delicious and reasonably priced. It's a bit out of the way and smallish but is always busy. She loves the poutine, I had the burger combo. They do a great breakfast menu too. This place is popular with working folks and the students from a near... More

We've been coming here for the past 5 years... There's no place that can make poutine like Ivan's. It's the best little diner in North Bay! The cashiers and service are always super friendly. Big portions and nice atmosphere.
