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...

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.
