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

Took the advice of other Tripadvisor reviewers and stopped at Ivans for supper. One of the best meals we have had in awhile! My spouse had ths New York strip and I had yhe beef kabobs. 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.

My wife and I are new to the area and this was our first visit to Ivan's. We accompanied two local couples who assured us we would not be disappointed. And we definitely were not. We arrived for an early dinner and met the owner, who is an extremely pleasant and cordial individual. Drinks were expertly made and were not... More

We had a nice dinner, steak, baked potato, salad, and dessert. The service was good and managed the Valentines Day crowd well. Would recommend for couples.

I have lived mostly in this area for 50 years, and I never happened past Ivan's in all that time though I heard the food was great. With the help of the GPS, I did find Ivan's. The steak was top quality and cooked to perfection. I have a very popular grilling blog called Barbecue Master, so I do know... More

Ivan's is a long time favorite in Salisbury. Their steaks and seafood are without parallel. The service is very good and the atmosphere is mature but intimate.
