Brunch treat!!Our brunch was delicious! Fresh, perfectly prepared, and delicious. We started with the cured salmon, which was excellent with its canopy of micro greens! Next I had the steak Benedic-perfectly prepared.
There are some unusual choices on the menu, which we look forward to trying...the fried green tomatoes or banana foster French toast will be first.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLove itWe go to Iva Lee’s often, and Mothers Day brunch is one of our favorites. There is always great music and food and a warm and welcoming staff. The owners are wonderful people. If you haven’t been to Iva Lees you must go, make an evening of it at the bar listening to the band of the night. Every meal on the menu will have you coming back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI have already highly recommendedI have already highly recommended Iva Lee's after this , my first meal there. As a mom to an upcoming chef and wife to a fabulous "hobby home chef", often I am disappointed with dining out- that was not the case with Iva Lee's.
I look forward to my next meal there.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA little noisy Sat night soA little noisy Sat night so forget about intimate conversation. Great band which accounted for a lot of the noise. But the first 1/2 hour the band played dinner music, which was nice. The dance floor was too small, kept bumping into other dancers. Would I come back -- you betcha.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall it was great ! LovedOverall it was great ! Loved the smaller plates and the fried chicken was wonderful. A little disappointed in the hush puppies-they were soggy and doughy.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMIntro to Iva Lee'sEnjoyed our first visit here. The decor reminded us of old New Orleans, service was warm and efficient. Nice selection for wines by the glass and my wife's peach martini was delicious. Our appetizers were okay, the fried green tomatoes and crab stack needed a bit more flavor. My porkchop was tender and flavorful. My wife wished there was more flavor to the collard greens in her shrimp and grits, but I liked my tastes of dish. The bar looked lively, there was a blues ensemble playing in the bar and their music was pretty loud throughout the restaurant - luckily they were really good! There's definitely enough here to bring us back soon.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved our recent dinner there,Loved our recent dinner there, will definitely be returning!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI've never had a bad mealI've never had a bad meal at Iva Lee's and their Fat Tuesday catfish dinners are one of my favorite things to eat. I could make a meal just out of their collard greens and garlic mashed potatoes themselves.Headin' back there this coming Tuesday.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGood time!We had a great time and enjoyed our food.
