Southern food at its best!

Just walking in an old mansion is reason enough to visit, but then they feed you. I don't know where to begin. The tomato pudding was a delight to the tongue. The cornbread, gold and crispy, light and wonderful. I cannot even begin to tell you of the chicken, or mac and cheese, or fried green... read more

My wife and I had lunch at The Ivy House in Williston. The food was excellent, I had the meatloaf special and my wife had the Krispy chicken salad. Reasonably priced and plenty of it. Unfortunately, I was to full to enjoy one of their wonderful homemade deserts. Our server was professional and attentive. The restaurant is a "re-purposed" older... More

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 fashioned comfort food - full... 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
