Southern Cooking and Southern Charm

This nice restaurant is stuffed with antique furnishings and good food in downtown Williston, Florida. The menu is loaded up with good southern fare including cheese grits and the speciality of the house, Krispy Baked Chicken. Good service and a pleasant atmosphere. Prices are reasonable.

My husband and I wanted to find a special place to have lunch. The Ivy was perfect! We chose their luncheon special crispy chicken and it along with the mac and cheese was delicious. They were very busy and service was slow and inattentive, but all in all we would recommend it. A gift shop is upstairs and has a... More

Great home cooking in an eclectic setting. Ivy house has good food and great service. A must try is the crispy baked chicken which is dredged in Rice Krispies. Good food.

I'm not sure if you can call this a review or not but I want to thank everyone there because my mother is home bound and had not had a steak dinner in over a year and I was not able to be there to either take her out or bring her one for mother's day so I called and... More

This restaurant is in a quaint house. Wonderful Boutique. This is truly home cooking at it's best. We go here often and I have never had a bad meal. From Chicken to shrimp you can't go wrong. One of our favorites.

When writing restaurant reviews, one has to frame it based on a restaurant for what it is. (E.G. - you cannot compare a Capital Grill to a McDonald's). This is a quant boutique small town restaurant in a really cool old Victorian house with a few tables in each room. The layout and decorations were really cute and it's got... More

Please keep in mind, at heart I'm a buffet guy. This is a sit down, tablecloth, fancy stuff on the walls place. They advertise a prime rib special so we go for dinner. They seated us next to the passageway on "the Porch", which enclosed and rather rustic... nice, except that everytime somebody walked by this, the most travelled location... More

If you like antique houses, I guess this place is OK. The food is uninteresting, and the service, although very friendly, was incompetent. Best not to go in a large group. The signature dessert was nearly devoid of taste. The mac-and-cheese was good, which probably tells the story. There are much better restaurants in Gainesville, so unless you are in... More
