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

Kept hearing people rave about The Ivy House. Finally had a great excuse to make the hour drive to check it out. Went with several sorority sisters as a "mystery destination" to celebrate Valentine's Day. Everyone was thrilled when we pulled into The Ivy House. The ambiance, the setting, the service, the FOOD...everything was a WINNER! All of the items... More

I ordered the fried seafood platter that included Cod fillets, shrimp and scallops. The cod was a little greasy, but the shrimp and scallops were very good. My wife ordered the chicken and liked it very... More

Took a motorcycle ride from Ocala & stopped here for lunch. Great choice. My girlfriend had a southern fried shrimp sandwich, very good. My hubby had a southern fried cod sandwich & our other friend had the special. That was southern fried chicken & fixins! All were very good & we will go back again. Service was excellent too.
