Why do the same old taco Tuesday every week. Iva Lee's has happy hour all night and a special Tuesday menu with everything under $10.00. My favorites include the meatloaf and chicken dinners. If you like it spicy try the jambalaya. Tuesday at Iva Lee's.

This used to be one of our favorite places in town-until our last visit. The Jambalaya used to be something special. This time, it tasted as if it had been sitting around and was zapped in the microwave. I had the catfish special. It was overcooked and mushy. not a good experience.

Iva Lee's on El Camino Real in San Clemente is, literally, a restaurant we drive nearly an hour to reach. It's a southern style restaurant and bar in the downtown area. They have great musicians who play in a mid-sized bar, along with excellent food and drinks. We just visited on a Tuesday, and though there's no music on Tuesdays, there is a great reduced price menu and drink specials. We have had the fried green tomatoes, fried chicken, and a couple different salads and would order all again. On Thursday nights there's music and all night drink specials. Try it once and you're sure to return again and again!

The band that played was great but too small of area for that great band sound. They sounded great outside at a golf club.
The food was okay. It was supposed to have a New Orleans flair of food it does not have the taste or texture of New Orleans taste.

We celebrated a friend's birthday at Iva Lee's last night with a group of 18. As always, the food was terrific, served perfectly, and the atmosphere great. We had the exclusive use of the patio, and Eric Waggonner, the owner, took special care to make sure the event was a success. He was very accommodating with menu selections, and had the patio dining area set up beautifully. The service by the wait staff was really great - timing was perfect for the cocktail and dinner service.
