Not sure what has changed, but we used to love this place. Now, it is simply average with indifferent service. My wife's martini was half spilled by the time it reached the table and the tuna in the tuna bowl was way overcooked and my short ribs were just not tasty. Oh how I wish for the old days.

What an awesome meal! Recommended by our hotel. We had the cauliflower appetizer, roasted beet salad, salmon, mushroom ravioli & bread pudding. It could not have been any better! The salmon was cooked perfectly - medium - not dry & overcooked! The beet salad rocked my world. Amazing! We truly enjoyed everything. What a pleasant surprise in the quaint town!

This place is a little gem in the heart of the square in East Troy! It has a woodsy up north charm that compliments the town. The food is good and the staff wears a smile and takes good care of you! Drinks and food is not over priced and everything is delicious! Stop in if your in East Troy!

This stop was because it has been recommended to other travelers. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their Friday fish specials are many with fish tacos, baked cod and the shrimp being my personal choices. They also have great burgers and salads. They also honor requests and their hot and buffalo combination tenders are awesome. I asked for... More

I wrote a negative review 2-3 months ago that was based on poor communication with a hostess. I have been back 4-5 times since then. Ivans might be the best dining option within 25 miles of East Troy? The place is tastefully decorated and the food and service is way above average. It is the "go to" place anytime I... More

On a recent Saturday afternoon this restaurant was fairly busy, but service was great. This place has a very cool atmosphere due to all the art deco items and murals. We were pleased to hear Frank Sinatra music and some other jazz. All our food items were very good. The "flaming cheese" appetizer is indeed on fire when it's brought... More
