My husband and I ate here before a flight on New Years Day. I was super excited to try their BLT. It arrived absolutely drowned in honey. When I read honey bacon on the menu I assumed it was bacon slightly flavored with honey like...More

We ate at the original downtown Minneapolis location. They also have two at the MSP Airport. Ike's was recommended from our hotel (Westin) asst. manager. Ike's presents a pub atmosphere, probably more well known for their cocktails and not their food. The seating was comfortable....More

good service. Just hamburgers you make at home. Pricey for burgers. Fries were okay. All in all, just expensive, good burgers

Large portions of home-made food! Definitely will return. Their helpings are large enough to take home an extra portion for the next day. I had the roast beef dinner and it was one of the best roast beef dinners I have had in a restaurant....More

The steak burger is unbelievably good. Tasty and cooked to order. Lots of good options on menu, but I always seem to gravitate to the burgers. The bleu cheese burger is also terrific. A little pricey, but worth it. Excellent beers on tap. Worth the...More

This restaurant has a unique Casablanca feel to it. It can also be described as a 40s or 50s style. They did a great job of sticking with this theme but not looking cheesy or overdoing it. The drinks and food is excellent. They have...More

Lunch at the downtown Ike's (not the airport location I've also reviewed) today was very disappointing. I ordered the seafood salad that had a less than generous helping of seafood over mixed greens. Things started out okay, but about half-way through the salad I noticed...More

We went to Ike's for a special occasion, so made a reservation ahead of time. When we arrived, no table was available, and we had to wait 15 minutes. Maybe there's something wrong with the acoustics, but it is just loud in there! Other diners,...More

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.
