Restaurant FAQ

What items do you have for special diets… gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, keto, low carb…?

Most menu items are adaptable, and we’re happy to adapt them to meet your needs.

  • Gluten-free: We offer gluten-free pasta, gluten-free bread, and gluten-free wraps and salads. We always have some gluten free desserts.

  • Vegetarian: Co-owner Wayne is a vegetarian, and our menu includes a number of vegetarian starters, soups, salads, sandwiches, and entrees. Vegetarian favorites include our famous house-made black bean burger, portobello burger with artichoke spread, vegetarian reuben, hearty salads, and pastas.

  • Vegan: We have a falafel and hummus plate, house-made black bean burger, veggie pasta, and salads that can easily be made vegan. Our salads are loaded with fruit and veggies and beautiful greens — these are not sad plates of iceberg lettuce. We occasionally make vegan desserts.

  • Low Carb & Keto: Many of our meat entrees are keto-friendly and low carb when ordered with double vegetables and no starch. We also do low carb and keto specials from time to time — keep an eye on our Facebook page for weekly specials.

Is Ivy’s a farm-to-table restaurant?

We source locally when possible, plus we grow a lot of produce ourselves, and frequently buy organic ingredients.

Is Ivy’s kid-friendly?

Everyone is welcome! It’s a cozy space, so you may find it’s not the most fun place to eat with your kids. Because of our size, we only have one high chair (no booster seats), and there’s not much room for walking with fidgety youngsters. The Absinthe Lounge and patio are 21 and over. 

Is Ivy’s dog-friendly?  

Dogs are welcome on our deck!

Do you take reservations?

Yes, we take reservations. We’ll do our best to have a table ready for you, but since the restaurant is small and our guests take their time, sometimes there’s still a bit of a wait with a reservation. Call (219) 929-4319 to make a reservation.

You can also reserve our back patio, Absinthe lounge, and/or upstairs dining room in advance for larger parties.

Do you take carryout orders?

We welcome carryout orders. Sometimes, some of our weekend dinner specials are not available for carryout. Call (219) 929-4319 to place an order.
