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...

Last Saturday Hubby, Sister-in-Law, and I had the pleasure to eat lunch at this lovely out of the way restaurant located in the small country town of Williston. What a surprise you will have if you have never been there! The house is quite old having been the office and residence of the town Doctor in a much simpler time.... More

Williston seems to open and close restaurants every couple of years. The latest place to open since my last visit is the Ivy House. The food and service were excellent, but the prices seemed a bit high for a small farming town in central Florida. The portions were a good size and we did not indulge in dessert. It is... More

I am a member of my local subdivisions social club. We had a group of about 14 people attend a dinner function at Ivy House Williston, Florida. There was a chalkboard out in front of the restaurant listing specials for the evening. I was a bit set back when we received the menu. It was very pricey for what was... More

My husband wanted my birthday to be special so he suggested the Ivy House in Williston for a relaxing lunch. We knew they were only open from 11 till 2 so we arrived around 12:30. She said we'd have about a 20 minute wait so we went upstairs in this beautiful home and browsed the shops upstairs with all their... More

In this out-of-the-way place you will discover the charm of old Florida. This renovated mansion has been beautifully appointed with decor and antiques to take you back in time to a quieter and less hurried point in Florida's past. As your server whisks by, you will see plates of food like families of old would serve. Williston is one of... More

My daughter and I ate lunch at The Ivy House in Williston yesterday. This was our first time at this location. She grew up eating at the Alachua location, but it is now closed. We had the day's lunch special -- buffalo shrimp spinach wrap and house salad. Both were delicious! Each room in the house has a different theme.... More
