Ivanho's is fantastic for informal, fast SUPER SUPER sandwiches, salads and ice cream. NEVER had a bad meal here. It is worth your time to get off the main way and get to Ivanhos. Your belly will love you for it

You cannot beat the ice cream at Ivanhoe's The tenderloins are very good also and the Taco Salad Supreme is the best in the area. Service is fast and the staff are friendly.

The problem with going to Ivanhoe's is the limited time that you have to choose what you want to order before it's your turn. Normally there is a very long wait, but it wasn't bad on the Sunday evening we stopped. We only had ice cream this time as my husband wanted a pumpkin shake. We have eaten here before... More

We did not eat a meal there just had ice cream. I had a peanut butter shake and yes it was very good. Look forward to trying a full meal next time

Stopped for dinner at Ivanhoes after our visit to Taylor University. Take note that after you order your food at the counter, there are seats at the front of the restaurant (near the counter) and at the rear (that you won't initially see). There was a bit of a line to order, but it took all that time and more... More

We waited over 40 minutes for our sundae....it was average, and the employees looked so unhappy and were moving at a snails pace... Sorry I have been in food service my entire life and rarely give poor reviews... But this was painful....

Came through Upland on my way north and had to stop to try the breaded tenderloin I'd heard so much about. It was tasty, although I'm not sure about it being "hand-breaded" on site. Not huge like others in Indiana. Great atmosphere. Will stop by again, although may try a different sandwich.

I've been to Ivanhoe's several time with my family. It's a great place to meet my family that lives in Muncie here. Every time I've visited, it's busy. They have a good selection of regular food. One of my favorite items is the fruit salad. For ice cream there are so many options! One could easily get overwhelmed with all... More

We have been to Ivanhoes twice and both times the food has been delicious. They also have fantastic ice cream sundaes and shakes, which is what they are known for. However, if you go during a busy time, you will wait forever. We stood 45 minutes in line to get our food and another 25 for ice cream. Seating is... More
