Love the location. Two blocks from the city parking garage. The bar is big and fun. The restaurant is very nicely decorated. Unfortunately we had to eat with our sunglasses on; but I believe they will eventually get the hint and tint the windows.

Service was good. Very crowded on a Friday night, but they handled it well. I can see this hot-spot being crowded Fri-Sun for a long time to come.

None of us raved about our entrees (fried lobster, crab cakes). But there’s plenty more to try.

Definitely will be going back many times!

We started with a great Caprese salad and Bacon Wrapped Dates... fantastic appetizers...

Entrees:
Excellent Atlantic Salmon... improvement suggestion is make it wild caught... my wife had the Whiskey Ribeye... excellent as well though the Whiskey drizzle isn't worth the extra $3.00 . Vegetables were green beans and baked carrots. The carrots were surprisingly good...

The blue cheese dressing on the salad didn't really have much blue cheese taste.. suggestion they need to add crumbled blue cheese to the salad or change that dressing completely...

Dessert was Bread pudding... a little homogenous and heavy for my tastes but still good..

Casey is an excellent server... She took care of us.... and the coffee was great...

We will be back...

Stopped in for lunch, a tad beautiful but found a comfortable seat at the bar, the place is beautiful, the servers and hostess were dressed to the T- a step back in time. The lunch menu has a great selection and priced reasonable. I had fried green tomatoes, just light breaded with a great sauce and my husband had a tomato caprese- done perfectly with cheese in between the tomatoes and great balsamic and pesto on it! Our server/ bartender Billy was perfect. Service was great and this will be our go to place since the food was fresh and service was top shelf. Thank you

Ivy house has moved to downtown across from the historic theatre. It is furnished beautifully. The Sunday brunch was terrific with grits as good as they get! It’s a bit pricey but worth it.

My husband and I decided to check out this restaurant recently on a day trip to Ocala. We went to the Silver Springs Rd. location where a sign redirected us to their new place downtown. The hostess and servers were friendly and the food was tasty. We sat outside and enjoyed the picture perfect weather while enjoying the shrimp po boy and buffalo shrimp wrap.
