This restaurant is always crowded so you do need a reservation. Try specialize in Italian food but have a large menu including prim rib on Friday and Saturday. Their BIG specialty is their Thursday night chicken cacciatore and a reservation is a must. Almost every body raves abut their food - my husband said the seafood fettuccine was excellent .... More

Enjoyed a meal at the Ivanhoe last Friday night. Had a tasty cranberry-ginger martini before enjoying minestrone soup and pasta. Large portions left my husband full and left me with leftovers! The service was prompt and friendly, food very tasty. The building has history, which is fun. The main dining room was hosting a large family celebration, so we found... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner in a dining room loaded with atmosphere. The food deserves five stars but given the remote location (and the previous night's dinner at the Scotia Inn which did not have a corkage fee) it surprised me that they charged $10 corkage on our bottle of wine. Honestly, I think wine list only offered wine by... More

GET A RESERVATION unless you are willing to take a chance on bar table availability. Very popular place for dinner. Worth the wait, if you have to wait. Highly recommended.

I had the Chicken Caprese, it was amazing. My husband had the Linguine and Clams and he thought it was delicious. You have to make a reservation but it's well worth the wait for sure.

Fabulous entrees. Just a bit too much. Didn't realize we could order smaller portions until it was too late.

We came here by chance as one of the locals we got chatting to told us the local people all go here. It is closed Monday to Wednesday in September so we went on Sunday night. The atmosphere was lively and cheerful. We booked a table as it was really busy with a few local birthday celebrations and we were... More

Have always stopped in for dinner when I'm in the area. I usually order one of the specials, and last night was no exception. I and another member of my party ordered the King salmon. The other two ordered the 12oz prime rib. The salmon was very fresh and well done. Everyone talked about the prime rib. Very little fat... More

Stopped for drinks and early dinner at the bar, not realizing this was first of three days of horse races at the Humboldt County Fair. Bar went from 4 people to 50+ in no time. Bartender was still friendly and made a very good martini. Food was mediocre. Had a great time, though!
