An enormous portioned brunch, you won’t leave hungry. The cinnamon rolls are the best. They have a giant Bloody Mary with everything but the kitchen sink it...I skipped the giant one, and asked for one with less groceries in it. I knew I wouldn’t be able to eat all that and the brunch.
Had brunch before the Vikings game. Service was good, and the food was great. Fun, energetic place for pregame.
It’s a bummer when you have a reservation at a restaurant only to discover it is closed when you arrive. Seinfeld was right about the importance of keeping, not merely taking, the reservation.
Ike's is always a good choice. Food is good and consistent. Friendly upbeat atmosphere and staff.
First off, Open Table says their is a happy hour from 3-6pm. It does not state that this is M-F, and even shows this as a special when we booked our table on Saturday. However, when we get to restaurant, happy hour is only M-F. Regardless, the bar tender gave me happy hour price for first drink.
My wife ordered the steak sandwich. It was not sliced steak, but 2 chunks of steak. She was unable to bite through, and i tried cutting with knife with much difficulty. Was more medium rare than medium well she ordered.
She returned it and got a hamburger.
Overall, not the best experience.
Awful, the worst experience I’ve had at Ike’s.
Will not be back.
Room-temperature martini; lukewarm, tasteless hamburger. Other than that, all was well.
Good service, okay food, very over priced. They charged me $6 for rocks in my drink.
We love this place for the coziness together with good burgers and steaks. It’s nice food without being pretentious. Great place to meet friends as you can talk without yelling!
Never disappoints! Love the atmosphere, food, waitstaff!
We were entertaining a couple thinking of a move to the twin city area. It was a Monday night and we were able to easily converse. The food and service was outstanding. The chef stopped by to check on our satisfaction. An excellent option for downtown dining in Minneapolis.
A favorite lunch spot! Good food and friendly staff in a cozy downtown environment. Great for a business lunch.
First time brunch outing on a recommendation from a friend. Definitely worth the trip. Service was spot on! Food just kept coming. Like until we kindly told them to stop bringing it....and I'm an eater!
Love the atmosphere at Ike’s. A little speedy and service was only so so this time
I had the walleye which was very good. One of our group ordered a party melt medium well that came out rare and when she asked for onion rings instead of fries she was told after the fact that she could not sub onion rings. We had two specialty drinks (apple pie martini and spiced pear martini that came out with so much ginger beer in them that you could not taste anything but ginger. Our first try of this place but I'm not sure if try again sorry to say.
Pre-game Vikings game breakfast
Used to frequent Ike’s and haven’t been there in awhile, so we were downtown and decided to stop in for dinner. We always love the tableside chips and guacamole, but I remember the chips used to be made in store? This time they just seemed like inexpensive grocery store chips. I ordered the ribs, had them in the past and seemed to fall off the bone but this time were very tough. Wife’s salmon was good. For a modest meal and a few drinks the bill came to $135. Tried to use an Ike’s gift card we received but it can only be used at the Minnetonka location. (Aren’t they all Ike’s?) sat a group next to us who was incredibly loud. We expect crowds and noise, but they were over the top. Service wSngreat, but not a great value, and overall were disappointed.
A nice alternative to the steakhouses around it. I like the fact that its a local restaurant. Good selection from fine dining to sandwiches and burgers. Salads looked like they came straight out of the Dole package, but they were good. Service was slow. Decor was dated.
Warm comfortable atmosphere with good food and service. Fun stop when in the Minneapolis area, never fails to be good. Ambiance on a cold winter day is especially is inviting. The reliable warm cookies and lollipops following the meal is always a delight!
Waite staff is always very friendly also.
Menu is diverse, something for everyone. Server seemed new, but took care of us. Food took quite awhile to come out. My salad was nicely dressed and very good. Salmon on top was pretty plain. My husband loved his filet.
Nice atmosphere. Generous pours on the drinks. However, a little pricey for what it was ($20 for a burger, really?)
Always good food and good service. Would highly recommend.
I am an Ike's devotee; I have never had a bad experience at this wonderful place! I love the food, but I also appreciate the cozy, intimate, atmosphere; one would never know that a bustling city street was just outside to the two sets of double doors of this gem.
The ambience is sports bar which wasn’t what we expected - definitely not supper club vibe. The center of the room is a large bar. Restaurant seating is booths and tables in each side. There are a number of large tv’s. The noise level was very high with talking and yelling from other guests. Food was actually pretty good.
Food was not cooked through. Manager and staff however were very appropriate. Did not make us pay for appetizer or drink. Offered us a $50 gift card. We elected not to take it. Hoping it was just a bad night for them.
Always great at Ike’s. They updated their prices, so doublecheck your receipt vs. the menu-there were errors but they immediately corrected it.
One of my top spots to go for lunch. The steak salad is the best, and the staff is always exceptional.
Our server Moses, was wonderful and attended to us wonderfully. Food and beverages where great. Surprised by the wine offerings and was very pleased with the whole meal.
Great lunch place for a casual business lunch. Good service, great food. Nice atmosphere!
Ike’s is a classic old-style supper club with an up-to-date menu and cheerful service. Our dinner made us smile, definitely “Minnesota Nice.”
It was my wife’s 40th birthday. Everything was great. I recommend Ike’s for any occasion.
Nice place prior to going to a show. They did a good job moving us in and out without having that rushed feeling. Nice t see an older established place still making it
Just ok. There are better places.
only downside were noisy toddlers. would be great if 21+ restaurant. Food was great.
A fabulous Sunday all you can eat brunch. The carmel roll is huge and delicious!
Ike's is great in every way. One of our favorites. We love the atmosphere and the food!
Best happy hour in town. Ribs and chicken satay were really good. Also nice wine selection
Broad menu of high-quality bar food. The food is excellent. The service is top notch and friendly. This is a terrific place for lunch (and dinner).
I haven't been here in a while... and first of all you need to know that I love Ike's. The ambiance alone makes it worth a stop.
I noticed in this past lunch that quality of food is slipping a bit. I had the walleye sandwich, and it was just ok. The bun was semi-stale and hadn't been toasted... and for $16 you should have an amazing sandwich.
This may have been an anomaly (or maybe you should only get red meat here), but it wasn't their best showing.
Food was good, but pricey. A turkey dinner with no bread, salad, veg shouldn’t cost $16. Mashed potatoes need work...pretty flavorless. Stuffing was good but nothing to write home about. Turkey was tender and moist but pretty much cold. Gravy...eh. Wait staff a little cocky, but I didn’t mind that. Tiny chocolate chip cookie was great...but should be bigger or in two’s.
Ike’s was good. The service was great and the food was delicious. But they really need to fix their air conditioning. It was stifling in there. We would have stayed longer because they had some fun drinks, but it was ridiculously hot in there. We had reservations and a concert to get to otherwise we might have just gone to eat somewhere else. It was that hot. The server said it’s always like that in the summer the AC can’t keep up.
So I’d go again, but prob only in the cooler months.
