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!

This place is an institution in Upland, Indiana. The shakes are outstanding. Hardest thing is to decide which of the 100 shakes to order. Be prepared to wait an hour to get ice cream on a friday night. We always make sure we stop there whenever we get back to Upland, Taylor University, but not sure we will be willing... More

Definitely try the strawberry shortcake sundae or a pineapple whip shake! Those are my favorites! Oh & the Texan Burger is a must!

Ivanhoe's is great! Wonderful food and great ice cream, shakes and strawberry shortcake!!! Love the atmosphere. A little higher priced, but worth a visit or two.

Any kind of ice cream, sundae, or shake you could want. Very hearty servings. Food is good too but definitely keep room for a sweet treat!

Stopped here on the way from Indianapolis to Detroit... only about 10 minutes off the highway. One of the best bbq pulled porks I've ever had! And only 3.70! The burgers/ hot dogs/ sandwiches were all on the smaller side, so I'd order 2 if you have any kid of appetite. The fries were tasty as well. The real attraction... More

Ivanhoe's is an awesome restaurant! The food is great and so is the ice cream. With 100 different varieties of sundaes and shakes, you can't go wrong. Kids love it and so do I! Expect the place to be busy, but that's what you get from an awesome restaurant.

...and I mean a dairy cow. The entrees are fine; nothing special, but not bad. The dessert is to die for! I had a strawberry shortcake that put me on the floor! The strawberries are very fresh and a nice, ripe red. The shortcake is homemade and encrusted with caramelized sugar. To top it off, they put soft-serve ice cream... More
