This is a quality steakhouse and is the best within 20 miles. The service is excellent and we have never been disappointed.

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.

Highly recommended by the locals and ranked high enough in Trip Advisor to give it a try. Unfortunately it was an off night for Ivan's and our experience was less than desired. Wait staff was very friendly. However after 1 1/2 hours we gave up on our steak and asked to pay for the apps and salads. They were very... More

I would personally consider the fanciest restraunt ever attended, and the food was absoluteley amazing. Friendly workers and a great peaceful dining experience. This is by far my favorite restraunt and would recommend to anyone!

While in town on business a few coworkers and I went for dinner on a Tuesday night after a recommendation from a business associate. The restaurant is outside of the city limits in a rural area so set your GPS to get there. They have a good menu with selections that are sure to satisfy everyone in your party. The... More

I was very much looking forward to my Valentine's dinner with my boyfriend at Ivan's. The menu, service and management over delivered an AMAZING experience. The wine selections were excellent and the seared tuna knocked my socks off.

Anything but fine dining. Our group waited nearly one hour and 45 minutes for our main course. Once the course arrived, the sides were cold. After asking three times to speak to the owner, I was finally directed to the bar where he was bartending for the evening. In the rudest way possible, he degraded me as a human, questioned... More

My husband and I went here last year for our anniversary dinner and I very disappointed. It was a week night and they weren't busy at all and felt we should have gotten better service than we got. It's pricey and the food was not that good. We could have gone somewhere else and gotten better food for less and... More
