It's a burger joint with average food but it is also an ice cream shop, so that perhaps makes it above average.

Ivanhoe's has been a favorite place of mine since I was a little girl. The food hasn't changed much but it is simply the best. I recommend the broccoli soup in a bun bowl, or the pizza burgers. Really, everything they have is great! And you can't leave without ice cream when you visit! It's the best part! With 100's... More

It has become a tradition to stop by Ivanhoes on our way home from a Ft Wayne swim meet. The food is good and the ice cream and shakes are awesome. Only one note on the food. The pizza burger is nowhere close to a pizza burger. It is more like a sloppy joe burger. Everyone else in our party... More

Ivanhoes is an off the main street, wonderful Ice Cream parlour and diner. They offer 100 different shakes and 100 different sundaes as well as cookies, treats and fast food fare. (They are a diner, but probably best known for their frozen treats.) Burgers and fries are ample in serving and delicious. The Cheddar Bacon Cheeseburger is decadent and wonderful.... More

When going to Ivanhoe's you know the food is probably going to be good. You should also plan on it being a bit pricey. I go through that area a lot and it is a stop once in a while, just because of the price. When it comes to the ice cream part, they have everything you could imagine!

I took my son here on a Monday night after an evening of chores. We arrived at 8PM to find the parking lot packed. I was amazed. He had the chocolate midnight shake which was, as always, decadent! This is the place after a ball game, after church, or just because. Everything is reasonably priced and the portions are healthy!... More

I want to start off by saying that the food here is pretty good. I've enjoyed the pulled pork, pizza burger, and grilled chicken sandwich. However, you usually go here for the ice cream, and with over 200 options it does not disappoint. The mini size is enough to fill you for some things. Regular size is gigantic. And everything...

Ivanhoe's is a great place for the whole family to share one of their hundreds of different combinations of ice cream or a delicious pork tenderloin (my favorite). It's a charming place nestled in what many would describe as 'the middle of nowhere, but it's worth the detour!
