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

Having been fortunate enough to have eaten at some of the best steakhouses in the country this restaurant has the best tasting NY strip I've ever had.

You think you are in a screen from the Twilight Zone. You're hurtling along after dark in the freaking woods when this neon sign appears through the trees on the right "Ivans". You walk towards the door, past the barber shop...Yes a barber shop in the same free-standing building.... Great steaks. They also feature some of the Trappist beers from... More

My husband were looking for somewhere to go for dinner besides the chain restaurants so I used Trip Advisor and I am glad we found Ivan's Restaurant in Salisbury. i has the prime rib and he had the blackened ribeye and both were cooked to perfection. Our server was attentive to all our needs. We highly recommend Ivan's !

It is hard to get my excellent rating, I considered going very good, but have to reward effort and taste. And consider the area - other options/competition. The peanuts-on-floor atmosphere of the bar makes a nice mis-match with wooden dining room and finely prepared steaks. Staff is friendly and attentive. We started with beers in bar, then apps at table.... More
