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.

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!
