My wife and I are from Cajun country and were in heaven eating here 3 days in a row. Varied menu will meet every dining idiosyncrasy. All food is organic and locally sourced thus the only thing they lack is fried green tomatoes.

The banana pecan french toast was delicious. We didn't try any of the cajun/creole options, but standard breakfast items were great. Good friendly and fast service. The outdoor patio is really nice with a giant tree canopy shading the whole area. They accept cash only.

My husband had a potato boat and I had Tomato Gasser. Both were extremely yummy, filling and well presented. The waitresses were very friendly and the overall environment was fun. We'll be back for certain, thank you!

We sat under the breath-taking cherry tree in full bloom and petals showered us on the patio while eating lunch. The wait is long for a table, but worth it once you get one. The New Orleans gumbo was delicious and packed with andouille sausage...More

We visited recently on a Sunday with a big party of 8. Ike's is very busy and we had to wait quite awhile for a table, but the food was delicious (large portions) and the service was fantastic!
