Want to give a special thanks to the Ivy House. I traveled there with a motorcycle group and we arrived after being caught in a torrential down pour. We were all soaked when entering the restaurant. Not only did they have a table ready for us, they saw us pull up in the parking lot, but they were ready for... More

We eat at the Ivy House every time we pass through Williston. The food is consistently good and the decor is fun and welcoming. The service can be slow but it's a mom & pop restaurant in a small town...everybody knows everybody and everybody wants to chat. I recommend it and look forward to it every trip.

Was very excited to stop here after reading some of the reviews. Not from this area. Sorry but this place was not worth the money. Very overpriced for 1 plate of food. Would be quaint and nice if friendly staff. Waited 45 minutes to be seated, was told 20 minutes. Women was not friendly at all. Acted like she was... More

Our waitress was fairly new she said, gave us TMI. She completely forgot our salads. Food came out, accepted it because we were starving. Crispy baked chicken was so tough we brought it home to our dog. No break on the check. One of my worst restaurant experiences ever. Extremely hard to get our iced tea refills. I'm very sorry...

Good ole Google Maps led us to this restaurant as we were driving from Perry FL to Orlando. It was a bit off the main drag and the Google Maps stick pin had it on the wrong corner. The food was scrumptious. The fried shrimp were great. The crispy chicken dinner was great. A minor complaint for us was that... More

Stopped by the Ivy restaurant with 8 family members for dinner and everyone enjoyed their dinner. From the seafood combo, tilapia, shrimp and I had the baked crispy chicken. Everyone had nothing but compliments for the chef. My chicken was juicy and cooked perfect, the mac & cheese was great. The only draw back was that there is no bar... More

My wife and I stopped on the way home from Atlanta. We had seen this restaurant many times. We had a nice meal, a little pricey, but overall a nice visit. The owner and her daughter were nice and had a discussion about old recipes with my wife. My wife promised to provide an old cake recipe. So we planned... More

When I visit Florida on a yearly bases this is a "have to" place to visit. My family took me there for the 1st time years ago. It is great for a special occasion or just for fun. My sis and I always order the prawns. My husband orders the chicken. We have never been disappointed. I love that it... More

Ivy House is actually an old home converted into a restaurant in downtown Williston. This is my second visit for lunch and I was not disappointed. Ordered the baked crispy chicken, with all the fixins'. Now I've read some folks don't like all the sides on one plate, and touching each other, but this is really no problem if you... More

We went to celebrate a Birthday today. This was our (my husband and I) first time at this restaurant. When the waitress arrived with our order she gave us one plate, and in the same 10" plate was a piece of oven fried chicken, a little bit of salad, a little bit of vegetables, a no cheese taste bit of...
