Three of us went to the Ivy House for the first time. When we arrived, the hostess told us we would have to wait. After about 15 minutes, we asked how much longer, 15, 30 or 45 minutes? When we asked to speak to the owner, she said she was the owner. In disbelief, we left.

Not only a cute house turned restaurant but everyone's lunches were exceptional. A simple BLT with fried green tomatoes was a standout. The salads amazing. We'll be back again & again.

Delicious food and atmosphere. Reasonably priced. Old style Victorian home transformed to beautiful place. Good spot for lunch get together and special occasions!

I haven't been there in a long time, and it was really good to get back. The service is great and the food is wonderful. I have dietary restrictions and could still find something to eat that was good. I was not limited to salad with nothing, on it. While you are waiting, (because they don't take reservations) there is... More

The food service was one step above fast food. The fried green tomatoes were great, but everything else was sub-standard. The dressing came in plastic containers as did the condiments for the baked potato.

The food and service are above average and the atmosphere is quaint, from the little bar when you first enter, to the little boutique for shopping, it is a memorable experience.

The food was average and, some of it, not as described in the menu. The lobster was not served with drawn butter, as per the menu. Instead, it came with some sort of mayo based sauce. We ordered the milk cake for dessert for the 4 of us to share. The menu says topped with fresh fruit. It came to... More

We ate here for lunch, each of us ordering something different. I had the chicken salad plate, my husband had the philly sandwich, and my friend had shrimp wrap. We had a mini appetizer consisting of onion rings and fried green tomatoes. We loved all the food mentioned above, plus, the sides which included potato wedges, the best yeast rolls... More

We had lunch at the Ivy House and found the food and service to be excellent. Our wait person Dana was attentive, friendly and prompt with his service. I had the Philly Steak sandwich with a garden salad. The sandwich was outstanding and the salad dressing was home made and delicious. We will stop here again when in Ocala

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...
