If you want a nice place and good food Ike’s is the place! We come from an hour away and have always had a great experience. The service is great, the food is good and it’s clean. We’ve tried something different every visit but always have the Fresh guacamole made at the table served with warm tortilla chips from the fryer. Yum!

Ike’s is our favorite place to go for a family get-together. Service was great, and Billy is our favorite server!

My first visit to Ike's was amazing...due largely to the incredible waitress we had that time.
This is my second visit to Ike's and everything was still amazing EXCEPT the waitress was barely ok. Not very personable, not engaged in her job, not engaged in her customers. She did take our order, bring our food, checked to see all was ok, and brought our check...all with as little effort and enthusiasm as possible.
Interesting what a difference a wait staff person can make!

Very attentive service, nice atmosphere, and our food was served hot and delicious. My wife needs gluten free options and there were a variety of choices. A yummy Cinnamon Carmel roll on the house was a nice surprise. We both had the Ike’s breakfast sandwich, one regular and 1 gluten free. We were both very pleased. The brunch menu was a bit narrow but I always believe you should stick with what you are good at. This is a repeat destination for sure!

Our server Kelly was excellent - very attentive but not overbearing. We loved all our food except the breakfast flatbread; it was very average. Omelette was huge and packed full - delicious. The caramel roll is such a fun touch. We were celebrating a birthday and many of the staff made it a point to wish us a happy one so that was fun and added a personal touch. Definitely recommend.

I'm sorry to say our brunch was a disappointment, unlike the delicious meals we've had at Ike's downtown. We had a 10am brunch reservation and we were surprised their caramel rolls were yet to be made, so instead of being served the roll at the beginning, it was served after we finished our meal. Our scrambled eggs were served cold and they were "rubbery" and the toast was hard. The bacon was delicious, but when our granddaughter asked for more bacon, the second serving was undercooked. When the caramel roll was finally served, it was cold and less than half the size of the roll at their downtown location. We will definitely go downtown in the future.

We love the restaurant, the ambiance, etc. Have been to restaurant many times and loved everything but the real problem is that tables are way too close together. Very hard to get in and out and consistently being bumped or nudged by people at adjacent tables. I have overlooked this before because everything else has been positive but honestly am going to reconsider visits in the future. It was not enjoyable.

They refused to honor the $25 Open Table Dining Reward under which I booked this reservation. They blamed OpenTable for any “misunderstanding”. Frustrating dining experience but otherwise good food and service.

Hi Dean, I am sorry for the confusion. Open table is responsible for the rewards they offer. I will reach out to them for clarification, but our computer system is not set up to accept their rewards. I am sorry for that stress, and I hope we see you again soon.

They got 3 out of 4 orders wrong. The wait person only listened to the person speaking so it took 3 trips to get things correct. Disappointing for sure.

Great food. We were just beginning our appetizer and then our entree arrived. Felt rushed— when we just wanted to relax on a special anniversary. Still enjoyed our dinner.

My food was mixed with soup good but needing seasoning and BLT fair with toast overly toasted and fell apart. My friends tuna melt was ok but no better. Disappointing at best.

I love this Ike’s. You never feel rushed and the food and drinks are great. Try the linguini pesto with chicken! Our server was great. His name was Christopher V. Thanks Christopher for the wonderful service. You made our night very special:)

I would like to see your rear parking lot re-striped to accommodate vehicles that are the size small train locomotives larger than spaces marked off for actual automobiles. We have a six-month-old BMW that was wedged in between two of those monstrosities and when we went to leave, we found a short, but deep dent where someone in a mega-truck had rammed their door into it. Perhaps people who must drive such vehicles should be forced to park on the street and walk a bit.

The food quality, the waiter, etc. were all excellent. It's a pity to have a visit to Ike's marred by a horrible parking situation.

The food was wonderful and the restaurant was lovely. I was underwhelmed by our server. She served all from one end of our table, which meant we all had to pass each others food down - and our table wasn't even that long (there were only 8 of us - 4 on each side). She was unapologetic about as well.

Birthday for my mom was lovey. Staff was very kind. Ambiance was great. We stayed for 2.5 hours. Food was excellent. Thought the price of the butternut squash special was a bit high ($30) considering there was hardly any meat in it but otherwise it was perfect

We took some out-of-town family members to Ike's and everyone could not be more pleased. The food, service and overall pleasant atmosphere made our trip definitely worthwhile! We would highly recommend Ike's in Minnetonka to any of our family members and friends.

The server was great, but it seemed like he had more tables that would allow for timely response to requests. It was Sat night and all tables were busy. We asked for tarter sauce for fish which they didn’t have. He said he could bring a lemon aioli by it never came and we couldn’t get his attention. Finally, after waving he came to our table. He had forgotten but finally got it to the table when the fish was half eaten. That was the only negative thing. He was very nice.
