This restaurant has great steaks and fantastic service. The comments on Trip Adviser are right on the mark. I did find the prices a little high but it is well worth the price.

The Filet is very good, the fish choice is great too. A nice bar and wine selection is available. I go every chance I get, a real favorite of the locals who know about it. It is a little outside of town, so less known to the passersby.

This place is off the beaten path but well worth the drive. There is nothing bad I can say! The food is great. Steak cooked to perfection. The staff is just wonderful. It seems like such a happy place to work! The dessert choices are endless and all fantastic. The bar is fully stock and they are great at making... More

What a wonderful evening we had at Ivan's tonight for our twenty-sixth wedding anniversary! The food and service were stupendous! Our server, Sherry, was so warm and gracious. We ordered BBQ ribs and they were cooked to perfection. All the food is tasty, the atmosphere is cozy, and the wait staff sincerely cares about your experience. We highly recommend this... More

We'd been here about 1 1/2 yrs ago and knew it was good. Took a couple of friends for a real real good steak for sitting our dog while on we were on vacation. We had 14oz ribeyes, 14oz new york strip, & 10oz prime rib, very fresh salads w/homemade dressings, baked potatoes & 1 w/rice pilaf, hot bread. We... More

Amateurish service, undercooked duck, pricy without value. This is the place where the country club side of town eats, and that's normally a good thing, except apparently the bar has been set low by this particular country club. Not close to the cuisine or service at the, not to far away, Childress winery bistro.

I just googled for a steak house and up popped Ivan's. So my husband and I went to try it out. It is only open from Tuesday through Saturday and opens at 5pm. Thankfully we got there a few minutes before. We were seated very quickly. The menus are rather vague, the pricing (very expensive) is merely put into lines... More

Both were delicious. Wonderfully tender. My side was the seated asparagus and again prepared perfectly. Our server was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is... More

Ivan's is the best of both worlds: a menu worthy of a five star rating and the casual atmosphere of a neighborhood restaurant (albeit it's a very nice neighborhood). Known for it's steak, in my opinion it is the seafood that makes it one of the best restaurants in the area.

Great steaks, and ribs, a little pricey for the area but worth it for a special event, or a date night.
