“Best Pogos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Ivan's is a favorite for breakfast and lunch - service is quick and efficient. Their pogos are the best I have ever tasted and are consistently good for the past many years. The french fries are homemade and fresh. A great family restaurant as well.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

Ivans is one of our favourite Diners in town. You place your order at a counter and they bring it to your table. They have everything wraps, burgers, and my favourite quesadillas. Its clean, and very friendly staff. Great place for families

“Old fashioned fare done right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Another place in North Bay to eat where you just can't go wrong. Awesome atmosphere but that classic working Wurlitzer Jukebox sets the tone. It is in perfect working order and beautifully restored. Very friendly service and nice portions. Of course, fresh-cut fries are a must in my opinion and Ivan's has as good as any place I've been. Awesome gravy. If I have one small complaint, it's the small bathrooms, but they're kept clean and sanitized so that makes up for it. Nice array of neon signs and other items of the fiftyish era. Food is consistently good from their all-day breakfasts to their fresh wraps and incredible burgers. When I'm in the Bay, (North Bay) I always have a tough time deciding among Ivan's, Burger World, Swiss Chalet, or King's Buffet.

“Great breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

Ivan's is a great place to go for breakfast. The prices are reasonable and the food is very good. Service is fast and friendly. The servers come around frequently to refill your coffee and make sure that you're enjoying your meal.

“Ivan's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

The owner made sure we found a seat when it was full already. He went out of his way to do so. The food was to die for. I loved their hot hamburger sandwiches. Very tasty menu and the price is right. A clean place too. One of my faves in this city.
