I used to frequent this place often, however since moving out of town, I came back as a celebration. I had 3 friends with me, for one of my friends this was his first time here. I told him how great the place was, only to have make excuses later. There was a big private party in the backroom, and... More

Consistently one of the best tasting steaks around! They season it just right and put just enough char on the outside to give a slight crunch. Even on a medium rare! A little off the beaten path, but full service and friendly staff. Start off with the half onion loaf (plenty for 2) as an appetizer. Rustic/local decor and you... More

Great drinks and a huge menu to choose from...I was told to stay with the steaks and was not disappointed. Now that I know how to get there from I-85, I'll be back when passing through once more. Smith and Wollensky without the formality is a favorable comparison...lots of families enjoying themselves there too. I will be back.

Ivan's is one of our favorite spots for a drink or for dinner. The best steak in the region, hands-down. I typically don't like to order steak when out to eat, because it always disappoints. However, I often find myself craving Ivan's steak with a side of asparagus, paired with one of their lemon drop martinis. If you're in Salisbury,... More

We recently visited our son who lives in Salisbury and had dinner at Ivan's. We had a good experience here. The service was attentive and the food was very good. This place is nothing fancy, so I wouldn't consider it as a romantic place to take a date. That being said, I really can't say anything negative about our experience.

I made the mistake of trying something other than steak in a steak place. I asked waitress if she thought the pork chops were a good non-steak choice, she said they were very good. She was wrong. They were dry, tough, and lacked flavor. We shared some appetizers - most of them were not so great. Service was great though.... More

My wife and I recently went to Ivan's for a steak dinner. Top quality meat cooked to perfection. No need for any "steak sauce" when you eat here. Friendly atmosphere. The male waitstaff was a bit slow though.

In these days of chain restaurants, it is wonderful to find an independent one that serves great food. I love prime rib and theirs always is tasty and perfectly prepared. Service is friendly and prompt.

I go with a big group every year on business in January. Often we have ended up with this group (40+) at Ivan's. And everytime we do I wonder why we have ever ended up anywhere else. In a group that size you might expect a filet to slip a little on temperature, moistness, something. But not one time was... More
