Ike's serves up one of the best burgers in my extensive burger experience. Burgers are one of my favorite meals and Ike's is in my top 3 favorites. Great atmosphere

It was ok. Probably won't go again. Service was very good. Hamburger was average. Chicken dinner was comparable to a TV dinner. Side salad delicious.

We stopped at Ike’s while waiting for our flight, and were impressed with our lunch. Nancy and I split the Pulled Carolina Pork Sandwich. The pork was flavorful and covered with a very nice sauce. It was served on an onion bun along with onion straws on top. Sides consisted of an abundant amount of very good fries and traditional... More

Long, narrow, woody, with double bar bisecting the place (this review is for DT only). Jammed on a Friday night; reservation a must. Generous varieties of so many drinks, including retro faves. Decorated with pints of old political quotes. Menu seems very ambitious; did not try guacamole at table.... at the airport??? Or in a dark seedish Dt location? Potstickers?... More

You have to eat here. Fantastic food and environment. From burgers to steaks, you can't go wrong here. I had two lunches and a dinner here after some business associates took me to lunch here. The staff are all great and the service is fantastic. Do yourself a favor and eat here.

The hubs and I had a meal at the bar last weekend, and i was super impressed. My cob salad was enormous, the beer was ice cold, and our bartender was as nice as could be. Would highly recommend!

I travel weekly with my team through MSP and we always make it a point to stop at Ikes at concourse E. the staff are world class and attentive and make you feel like an honored guest each time you visit. Food is very solid - and their version on some classics - including the club sandwich - takes them... More

Best French fries ever. Huge drinks. Friendly wait staff. Menu good and many of the old Charlie's Cafe Exceptional items on the menu. Try it you'll like it. For airport food it's a must. Syrdyk's is very good too.

Description
You’d swear this place has been around since the '40s. A bar commands the narrow room flanked by booths and tables. Servers in coats, bartenders in jackets yet with a casual air that screams welcome. American classics; juicy hand-formed burgers. Lunchtime, a carver chef slices fresh roast beef and roast turkey for sandwiches. Small plates span America’s history; supper club shrimp cocktail up-to-the-minute items as tuna tataki, fresh guacamole prepared table side, fresh spring rolls stuffed with rice noodles, shrimp and holy basil. “Big Plates”; Fillet Oscar, homemade meat loaf, pork prime rib, house smoked ribs, all can include soup, salad, bread and a basket of plastic-wrapped crackers, just like in the old days. Ike's has a serious bar, strong drinks, vintage cocktails and ice cream drinks a good selection of beers and wines by the glass. Ike's is one of downtown's favorite; retro booths, antique wood bar, with a supper-club feel.
