Where the heck is Ivan's (only the GPS knows)

I have lived mostly in this area for 50 years, and I never happened past Ivan's in all that time though I heard the food was great. With the help of the GPS, I did find Ivan's. The steak was top quality and cooked to perfection. I have a very popular grilling blog called Barbecue Master, so I do... read more

Ivan's is a long time favorite in Salisbury. Their steaks and seafood are without parallel. The service is very good and the atmosphere is mature but intimate.

Not worth the price. The place is old and needs remodeling...long waits for service. Will not return. Lots of places around to eat a good steak!

I have eaten here several times and I must say its hands down the best restaurant in Salisbury! Steak is always cooked to perfection. It's couple friendly, family friendly, or just a great place to grab a drink. Simply #1!

Traveling on business with a first time visit to a great city, Salisbury, NC. we had to rely on local recommendations for fine dinning. Ivan's didn't disappoint. A menu with selections for everyone we tried the blackened Mahi Mahi which was outstanding. We met the owner, Joe Sims, for a tutorial on his crafted beet selections and enjoyed a piece... More

Ivan's is an interesting place. It's fine dining and very hoity-toity, but it's in a cement block building and the decor is hunting lodge at its finest. Now the food is excellent. The service is so-so.
