Typical drive in food done fabulous. Ice cream concoctions are unbelievable. Strawberry shortcake enough for two or more and the hot fudge is sweet thick and just a bit bitter just like it should be.

I love going to Ivanhoe's with all my friends! The food is amazing as well as the ice cream! I'm so impressed with how quickly they get the food/ ice cream to us even though they are so busy! I highly recommend it to everyone!

Ivanhoe's is a "must-go" attraction for anyone visiting Grant County, Indiana. Great burgers and even better ice cream. An all around local favorite!

My husband, myself, and our two daughters stopped by on the way to Ft. Wayne because Ivanhoe's is something that is spoken with high regards down in Muncie. The food was good, and my daughters loved the extensive choices for sundaes and shakes. We will definitely visit again!

Long time Grant County residents and regular visitors do not need anyone to tell them about Ivanhoe's. Recently we were back in the area visiting some folks and everyone knows you just can't miss going to Ivanhoe's! Wildly famous for their ice cream and other frozen dairy treats, do remember Ivanhoe's serves "real food" as well. We stopped by one... More

This home town restaurant brings back wonderful memories. The ice cream is top notch and the hot fudge alone is worth the drive. Chocolate with a hint of bitterness and not the sickening sweet version sold by the jar. I had the superb and abundant strawberry Sunday with a light sponge cake with a crisp icing. Also the breaded tenderloin... More

While traveling home from making wedding arrangements, conversation headed down memory lane and Ivanhoe's Drive-In shakes came up. We diverted 6-miles off I-69 and headed to Upland, IN for some treats. It had been 20-years since my college days of road-tripping here and the place was essentially as I remembered it right down to the long line to order. To... More

The wait is worth your while. Prepare to meet lots of people. Love the strawberry lemonade and strawberry shortcake. Checkout the menu for numerous choices of ice cream-their specialty. Can't decide? Ask to taste. Tables to eat at are a premium- so don't let the full house run you away. No wait staff- you order- you wait.

Love this place! The sandwiches and salads are great, but everyone comes for the ice cream treats! 100 kinds of shakes & 100 kind of sundae's, anything you can think of! People come from all over Indiana and even the country. It's our go to place for good food!
