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

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
