Love this place. Every time we visit family, we make it a point to come here. They have one of the best tenderloin sandwich and onion rings. Of course, you can't go wrong with ice cream. Join the 100 club and work your way through the shakes and sundaes. The over all best item is the strawberry shortcake! There is... More

First, their ice cream is to die for! It's so delicious. Their food is greasy but super tasty as well. The building gets a little cramped at times and taking a large group of friends can be a hassle. If you go during the busy hours, there is a line BUT it's worth the wait. We don't go very often... More

We were in Indiana to visit my wife's family, this was my first time in the area. We all went to Ivanhoe's during our stay and WOW!! We went for late night dessert, it was sooo good. The worst part about it was trying to decide from their 80 different sundae choices. I finally decided on the Turtle sundae, it... More

Ivanhoe's is as much an institution as the local university. Their food is good but the burgers (& pork tenderloin) are great! Be sure to order the tater tots too. We enjoy the hand flavored vanilla cokes as well. The real gem here is dessert. Ivanhoe's shakes are LEGEND! They simply make the best mint chocolate chip shake I've ever... More

Everyone but everyone who visits the Upland area should take the beautiful country drive to and through Upland to get to Ivanhoe's. They are more than their famous ice cream, but they won't disappoint. Over 100 shakes and over 100 sundae choices. Don't let all the cars scare you away - they are fast service.

If you have not been, go. It's that simple. Or maybe it's not because once you arrive, you will need to make some complicated choices. 100 sundae & milkshake flavors!?! This defines paralyzed by choice, which may be why it takes a little while to receive this incredible food & delicious dessert after ordering. Should a special event be happening... More

Great ice cream, but the fruit plate and the Taco's are great also. Also try the breaded tenderloins.

The only bad thing about this place is that it's always crowded! Their sandwiches are great, chicken salad and fruit is fabulous and the ice cream concoction so are to die for! Go hungry. You'll leave stuffed

5 of us each ordered salads and we were all pleased. Servings were large and exceeded our expectations. Milk shakes are a whole other subject and an entire page of the menu.
