After a very long drive at the beginning of our trip, we were anxious to relax and enjoy a nice dinner. We headed to The Ivanhoe Restaurant and Pub. The dining area was separate from the Pub which promoted a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Our server...More

The Ivanhoe is always a pleasant experience to dine at. It is charming and the food is always very good. It has a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere in a charming hotel from the 19th century.

Were at the restaurant for dinner. Atmosphere was very nice and correlated to the one of the city. All places were seated, we had a drink at the Saloon first, but we liked it. Very good food and great service in the restaurant itself.

An amazing fun restaurant / bar. I had the Chicken Cacciatore for dinner. I don't know the chef, but he made an amazing dinner. This is well worth stopping in for dinner and some great local talent.
