This place is great for lunch and they offer specialty poutines that are just delicious. The family size fed my entire group of friends so if you are in a budget, this is a great place to go!

My family are regulars there because the food is always consistent and of good quality. My only complain is the size of the building. It's very small and cramped. If someone goes to get up off their chair they have no choice but to get into the person next to personal space and it's always busy so it's anything but... More

Good menu, very good food, nice prices! You order and pay at the counter and then grab a table. A waitress will bring your food over. Very quick! Super quality and taste for fast, popular, comfort food. They also do a very nice breakfast. Very popular, so be prepared to wait a few minutes to grab an empty table. But... More

I was impressed by the quantity of food presented for pretty good price at Ivan's. Went early on a Sunday morning and was met with fast, friendly service. Breakfast menu was pretty diverse and had some made-to-order options. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the fast food ordering atmosphere, although they bring the order to your table. The clear-your-own... More

I love Ivan's. Not only does this place have a wide variety of food but it's all awesome. I have never had a bad experience here. Some times the service can be a little slow but that's to be expected at a restaurant that actually serves good food.

This establishment was highly recommended for it's poutine. And it did not disappoint. It truly was very good. they offer many toppings but we settled for the basic large order to accompany our soup and were not disappointed. The only drawback to this restaurant was that it seemed highly regimented, eg: you even had to order each item very specifically,... More

I've yet to have a bad meal here. In my opinion they have the best fry and gravy in town. The staff is always very happy and helpful
