Never had a bad meal here. The food tastes awesome, is organic, different combinations of flavors than anywhere else. You are truly missing some of the best of Nevada County if you have not experience Ike's. GO and Enjoy!

I've been to Ike's a few times, and it's always crowded. Come with a little time to kill, be prepared to hang out on the deck waiting for a table, and be prepared to wait a bit for your meal to come. The wait for the table is because it's crowded; the wait for the meal is because everything is... More

The frittatas were good - I had the smoked trout - the "Sierra", my husband the "Bacon and Cheddar". We had both asked for very well done potatoes. They were raw. The service - seating was quick - was terrible. The drinks server forgot a straw - 3x. The food server was lackadaisical and very very slow. A friend of... More

Great place to go for breakfast, brunch or lunch! Really tasty food and a welcoming atmosphere. Wonderful outdoors seating which is really nice in the spring and summer months. Ike's is a great place to eat with family and friends and I definitely recommend it!!

Exploring Nevada City and came across this crowded place. The wait to get seated was worth it. The food is plentiful, fresh, and well flavored. Enjoyed the meal, particularly the gingered greens. Very unique flavors in their dishes. Great place to meet locals and people watch while waiting for your meal.

Ike's was our first experience of food in Nevada City and I cannot wait to go back. Everything on the menu looked outstanding and they use locally sourced and organic ingredients - which definitely gets applause from me! The outdoor dining was really cool and laid back. All of our entrees and drinks were excellent and mouth-watering - and we... More

Ate outside for lunch which was great. Many locals go there also since it is reasonably priced and recommended by our bed and breakfast innkeeper.

I don't know why Ike's would be rated #11 in Nevada City... REALLY??? I love this place! I'm gluten free and this is the ONLY restaurant where I know I can eat and not worry. I love the cozy garden-arbor feeling of their outside dining area. The serving staff are quick, considerate and fun. The menu is varied and offers... More

Extensive menu, enormous servings, great quality. Ike's is crowded, busy, very popular, but worth the wait.

We have been to many "Cajun" restaurants but this is by far the best. Food is fresh and healthy, quantities large! Great to share some dishes if you can't decide! Friendly atmosphere, attentive to your needs. You will not be disappointed! Eat on the patio if there is room!
