Yesterday, I placed a call to the Ivy House Restaurant in Ocala, FL to make a reservation for a birthday celebration. I was immediately told to wait and the phone was not put “on hold’ but the receiver was placed on the desk where I could hear all the conversations. I waited for well over 5 minutes and even spoke...

I ordered the Delmonico Steak and it was easily the worst piece of meat I have ever had put in front of me. I couldn't even eat it - it was very thin, had zero taste and was full of gristle. Whatever the accompanying sauce was, had obviously been allowed to sit and therefore coagulated on the meat. The side... More

The atmosphere is antique Victorian home where southern fried chicken with fried green tomatoes and 'Georgia Ice Cream' aka grits are just among the choices that result is a unique fun experience.

We eat here whenever we pass through Ocala which really isn't often. Great lunches, Excellent variety. Good prices. Service can be a little slow but each meal is beautifully prepared and that takes time. Really good chicken salad. Best croissants. Save room for dessert. Beautiful old Victorian building. Ample parking. Eat inside or on the front porch.

Well the restaurant is really cool and different, the decor added a relaxing touch. The filet and shrimp were awesome,both are tender and cooked as ordered, medium. There were six of us in the party and everyone enjoyed their food. There were two things that prevented a top score was the food temperature being served and the carrots. I am... More

We decided to go to Ivy House for a family birthday dinner. The appetizers and entrees were all great. Then the chocolate midnight cake came out and it was mind blowing! We all left with our happy levels in orbit! We'll be back for more!

We enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere very much. Service was excellent. I would like more space, but it is not a hinderance to our enjoyment. The food was prepared well and presented in professional way.

We have had office Christmas parties at almost every nice restaurant in Ocala. Ivy house exceeded all expectations. The ambience was festive, the food was delicious and the service was exceptional. They really treated us like family. We can not express how wonderful IVY HOUSE was in making sure we had fun. Thank you and Merry Christmas.
