Description: You’d swear this place has been around since the '40s. A bar commands the narrow room flanked by booths and tables. Servers in coats, bartenders in jackets yet with a casual air that screams welcome. American classics; juicy hand-formed burgers. Lunchtime, a carver chef slices fresh roast beef and roast turkey for sandwiches. Small plates span America’s history; supper club shrimp cocktail up-to-the-minute items as tuna tataki, fresh guacamole prepared table side, fresh spring rolls stuffed with rice noodles, shrimp and holy basil. “Big Plates”; Fillet Oscar, homemade meat loaf, pork prime rib, house smoked ribs, all can include soup, salad, bread and a basket of plastic-wrapped crackers, just like in the old days. Ike's has a serious bar, strong drinks, vintage cocktails and ice cream drinks a good selection of beers and wines by the glass. Ike's is one of downtown's favorite; retro booths, antique wood bar, with a supper-club feel.

We stopped at Ike's on our way to the Viking's game at the recommendation of the concierge of the hotel we stayed at. The excellent staff made this experience so much fun. We came for brunch and enjoyed a delicious caramel roll and one of the biggest bloody mary's I have ever have. I would love to come check out... More

Stopped at Ike's at the recommendation of a shop owner a few blocks away for a burger and a Bloody Mary. Wow. Maybe the best burger I've ever had. And the Bloody Mary was a meal in itself. The place was very clean and the the staff friendly. Go there if you crave a burger!

My husband and I ate here before a flight on New Years Day. I was super excited to try their BLT. It arrived absolutely drowned in honey. When I read honey bacon on the menu I assumed it was bacon slightly flavored with honey like maple flavored or hickory smoked bacon. No. It was a BLT with at least a... More

We ate at the original downtown Minneapolis location. They also have two at the MSP Airport. Ike's was recommended from our hotel (Westin) asst. manager. Ike's presents a pub atmosphere, probably more well known for their cocktails and not their food. The seating was comfortable. Our server, Kerry was efficient and swift. Honestly, we only had the "smokey" wings, fries... More

It is hard to find places passengers can truly get away from it all in airports. Ike's presents a relaxing, but fun environment in the MSP International Airport and their food is absolutely amazing. They specialize in delicious Wild Rice Chicken Soup, Fresh Bread, Walleye, Burgers & Steaks and the best Honey Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich I've ever eaten... More

Large portions of home-made food! Definitely will return. Their helpings are large enough to take home an extra portion for the next day. I had the roast beef dinner and it was one of the best roast beef dinners I have had in a restaurant. Others had wonderful salads and other scrumptious entrees. Their French Silk pie is also delicious!... More

The steak burger is unbelievably good. Tasty and cooked to order. Lots of good options on menu, but I always seem to gravitate to the burgers. The bleu cheese burger is also terrific. A little pricey, but worth it. Excellent beers on tap. Worth the visit.

Great place to eat at the MSP airport. The center of the restaurant is a huge beautiful bar with the tables all around the outside of the bar. The burgers are great here. It's not that they have exotic toppings but the meat itself is flavorful and prepared expertly. I have also had good experiences at the Minneapolis location.

This restaurant has a unique Casablanca feel to it. It can also be described as a 40s or 50s style. They did a great job of sticking with this theme but not looking cheesy or overdoing it. The drinks and food is excellent. They have a carving station with several different meats that are carved as you order. The service... More
