Enjoyed our visit at Ivan's. Good hamburger and fries. Fast service and clean. Flight crew enjoying a quick lunch this was perfect. Everyone was nice. Food was good and service was fast.

Great little restaurant. The prices are good, and so is the food! The tables are set for a max seating of 4. This may mean if you have more than 4 guests, you can't eat all together. You have the choice of eating indoors or...More

I am sorry to hear you were disappointed with your last take out order from Ivan's. We never put the mustard right on the pronto pups for take out, we only put a packet on the side. A lot of customers are not eating them...More

This is a casual place where you order at the counter. The selection is excellent and the staff friendly. They also have good ice cream.

Nice menu choices, quickly prepared and served! Fries are fresh and poutine is the specialty of the house. Prices are very reasonable too. It's a busy place during lunch time but don't let that send you away, it will be worth a short wait!

Easily the best fries and gravy in the Bay and the burgers and Pogo's are delicious too! Quick service always with a smile and a homey atmosphere as well.

Everyone raved about Ivan's as a great restaurant for breakfast. It's serve yourself which is not my favourite for breakfast. I ordered a ham and cheese omelette and the cheese was processed cheese slices. Disappointing and not very tasty.

I am sorry to hear about your so-so experience, it is definitely our goal to have everyone leaving very happy! Our ham and cheese omelette is normally served with mixed cheddar. I will follow up to make sure that everyone is following our specs!
