I can't believe the quality of the food in such a small town location.

We eat at this restaurant about once a month. We have never had a bad dining experience. It is about 1 hour west of Chattanooga, better than any restaurants in Chattanooga. Bring your own alcoholic beverage and sit back and enjoy the great food.

This is the 3rd time my husband and I have been to Ivy Wild. It was not a disappointment. From the breaking of the bread which is absolutely delish. We split our dishes, my husband started with the Filet and I got the chicken and waffle. Both we very good, the steak was cooked perfect and chicken was fresh (maybe... More

I took my 17 year old son and a friend here for dinner on a Thurs night and it couldn't have been better! The Breaking Bread is really good and the cheeses are some of the best! I typically don't order steak at a restaurant b/c I can cook a good one at home but I decided to order the... More

We ate at IvyWild last night. Two in our party had the beef filet and both said that it was the best and most tender meat they had ever enjoyed. Another friend had the fish and loved it and I had the duck and it was excellent. Be sure to try the breakable bread for an appetizer--probably the best bread... More

My wife and I just attended IvyWild's Valentine Night Prix Fixe Dinner. It was fabulous! Adventuresome and delicious. We usually enjoy these meals and this one was the best one yet! Kudos to Keri!

We had an amazing dining experience on our visit to Sewanee Tn. Our appetizers of cheese were delightful and with several varieties available gave plenty to choose. The steaks were prepared to perfection and were very tender. The Chilean sea bass was delightful as well. The flourless torte was just the right amount of dessert to cap off our dinner... More

Judging from the range of reviews, most people seem to rave about Ivy Wild. I'm going to attempt to give as fair as a review as possible. The set up: a party of four, a early (6:00) reservation, with two "locals" and two out-of-town genuine Foodies from the DC/NYC region. To save you from reading, let me sum up… the... More

Wow! never expected to find this level of gourmet food in the middle of the woods. We had an outstanding meal and when we went back everyone ordered the same meal again. We all wanted to try something new but the previous meal was so delicious we just wanted it again.

My wife and I were part of a wedding party of 14 persons who had reservations in advance. The groom's father and brother were not able to sit at our table and they would not rearrange the set up to accommodate them. They sat by themselves. Waiters were friendly and attentive but one side of the table was mostly men... More
