Wonderful experience

We've been here twice while visiting the area. We loved the atmosphere, the service and the food. Ms. Mimi (80+ owner, cook, baker, do it all) was there both times making the rounds, welcoming guests and such a delight. I could eat here every day. The problem is that all the yummy food is old... read more

Williston Florida is home for a great restaurant, the Ivy House. The food is great and reasonably priced. Every meal tastes like a special occasion or a holiday feast.

We are local and have enjoyed excellent meals at the Ivy House many times. Charming decor in an old Victorian home with friendly service and delicious food. We highly recommend their Crispy Chicken, macaroni & cheese and cornbread. We have tried lots of different entrees and daily specials and have always been pleased.

This place is really cute and run by friendly people. Unfortunately, the food is not so good. The prime rib was over cooked, the scallops and cod greasy, and the vegetables were cold. They ran out of baked potatoes at 7:30 on a Friday night. It's ok for lunch but I would not eat dinner there again. It's not worth... More

We had a wonderful experience at the Ivy House, from the warm greeting as we entered to the gracious "thank you for coming " as we left. The food was excellent! The mac and cheese was the best I have ever eaten! Even the baked potatoes were delicious, the corn bread out of sight I can't wait for the chance... More

This is a local restaurant in my town and we (family) visit it on special occasions like Valentines and Christmas. Their decor is Victorian by using an old Florida Victorian Home as their location. Seating is limited jet very cozy. They decorate according to season and do it very well. The menu is interesting in that meals are like combos,... More

We decided to eat out for Thanksgiving this year and was looking for some place new that would serve a traditional Thanksgiving meal. I happened across The Ivy House while searching and made reservations for the 3 of us. Everyone who asked about our plans raved about how good their food was or that they had heard awesome things about... More

It would not be hard to be #1 in Williston since it is a small town but Ivy could be #1 in a lot of big towns. I have only eaten Sunday lunch there after Church but both times it was great..Maybe a little expensive but the food taste and arrangement of the plate is picture perfect.
