Although we loved the atmosphere, we ordered a burger off the late night menu and at $9.95 it was one of the most expensive burgers at a bar we've had, plus it was the absolute wo...

The food is excellent! 3/17/2012

The food is excellent! I had the horseradish crusted salmon. Our waitress (Dana) was very nice & professional. A neat little place with unique atmosphere. If you're looking for a good place with great food in downtown Minneapolis go to Ike's. more

Great Breakfast! 10/17/2011

Never been disappointed here. Awesome breakfast in a great environment. Don't pass up the bloody mary! more

Club Sandwiches 5/18/2011

While waiting for a delayed flight, being hungry from a full day of travel, I popped into Ikes at the MPSP airport. The menu was pricey for burgers and sandwiches but I elected to stay. While scanning the menu I thought the turkey club would be good. Well upon receiving it from the waitress the first thing I noticed was the fries were somewhat burnt and dripping grease. (Lovely) The coleslaw was far too wet for me and full of mayonaise so I never touched it. Being hungry I started eating the club sandwich. After two bites I had a burning sensation in my mouth. Also the beef in there was stringy and unedible. Anyway I managed to eat the first half with two refills of iced tea. Since my mouth was still burning I decided to open the remaining half. Well to my surprise it was full of jalopeno peppers. Never had I seen this in a club sandwich. The whole experience was terrible and this was the worst club sandwich I've ever experienced anywhere. My stomach burned all the way to Baltimore and promised that will be the last time I dine at Ike's at the airport. more

Try The Guacamole and Steaks 3/14/2011

Ubber good. Fun, good good, fast service, but a bit on the expensive end. more

Best burger in town! 12/2/2010

Every time I go back here I seem to love their burger more. With all of the different options to choose from my taste buds are never bored! This is a nice juicy burger. more

awesome burger 10/25/2010

I love the concept, the space is supper cool, the burgers are awesome, the staffs are friendly, and price is a little much but I'll will be back. more

Dont dine at the bar at the Airport 4/24/2009

Bartenders are brusque and unfriendly. The service we received was very slow and impersonal even though the bar was not busy. We never received the food we ordered and had to leave to catch our flight after half an hour of waiting. They forgot to put our order in and we never got refills on our beverages or asked for a second drink. Pros: Nice atmosphere Cons: rude staff and poor level of service more

I love it here 1/29/2009

The ambience is cool but the food is delicious. I really like the burger/fries, the beef sandwich, the guacamole, the breakfast with the bloody mary and huge pastry. What else? My review isn't very excited but this place rules! more

SUB PAR, in every way. 11/13/2008

I went to Ike's for dinner before attending a show at Orchestra Hall. I was please with the ambiance of the bar, but everything else was sub- par. The menu was over priced, so my group of four decided to share some appetizers. The lobster corn dogs were not edible. The potstickers were alright, and the ribs were delicious but the portion was unbelievably unjustified for the price of the plate. The bloody MAry was pretty good and I enjoyed having the homeade cookies at the end of the meal. Overall, the place was disappointing. The food was sub par and the service wasn't any better. \r PRO- complimentary cookies with your bill\r CON- Crowded and overpriced more

Gone downhill FAST Horrible service, mediocre food. 10/9/2008

6 months ago, I was an Ike's fan. I've been there 20 - 30 times over the past 5 years -- yet, the last two times have been horrible. In sum, the biggest challenge is inept service that has an entitled air -- one that suggest that YOU are lucky to eat there. We sat at the bar this last time and our bartender had to be flagged down for a first drink as he was too busy flirting with single women, flagged down later (after 10 minutes of effort) for new drinks, catsup for burgers, etc. \r \r Our entire meal was messed up with our appetizer coming with our entrees (how long DOES guacamole take anyway?); our burger did not come as ordered; the bloody mary tasted like tomato juice without any zest or excitement; and when we asked for sauce the waiter was aggressive and confrontational. I'm not sure what Ike's is thinking, but, a waiter feeling like they can point at there name tag and correct a patron on how to address them, is NOT acceptable.\r \r Our night ruined, we discussed the horrible experience with the hostess. ""Oh (shoulder shrug), sorry,"" was the mature response of management. Kudos to Ike's on loosing a fan and having ruined our celebration that night. \r \r Do NOT go here -- you WILL be disappointed.\r \r Pros: good fries, nice location Cons: service, price, mediocre food more

Sharky is the manager you need to have at all this towns eateries! 8/4/2008

Went in after a show at Orchestra Hall, ordered a bottle of wine but we weren't told by the waiter that they close at 10:00. While drinking said wine, we were told to drink up as they were closed and wanted to leave; chugging the wine, we left along with several other patrons. Called the next day, asked for manager, was asked for my contact information as manager was out tending to some financial matter.\r \r Sharky, the manager, called back quickly. Listened politely as I explained that when we asked for a bottle, we should have been informed that the place had closed, or was going to close very soon; he agreed, apologized and then asked for information about waiter, said he would talk to the guy. Offered to send me a gift certificate as a way of making up for it. All very polite and understanding...THAT is good customer service. more

Avoid Sitting at the Bar 4/2/2008

One bartender there is very rude. We had to flag him down everytime we wanted another round of drinks. He needs to get into a different career because he has no clue and has an attitude. more

Good food Nice Environment 1/11/2008

We enjoyed ourselves very much, the food seemed quite nice for the price. Not a huge menu but plenty for casual dining. Space was a little tight, seems similar to Harry's Food on Washington Ave but they have much more space(big booths). Pros: Nice simple menu Cons: Very Tight seating more

Not so Irish 11/25/2007

The place is decent enough, but not fantastic. We stopped in for a couple of Irish coffees and some appetizers. The appetizers were so-so (fish tocos were good, but ribs were recycled), but the Irish coffees were the worst. It seemed a bit strange that the bartender had to ""disappear"" to make them - usually they build a drink in front of you so you can see what's what. Not this time. He takes off to some cubby hole away from the bar and then returns: ""Ta dah"" - here they are: luke warm and - I swear - no whiskey. So we asked him about it in a nice way and in a nice way he gets us two more on the house. A nice gesture, but two times bad is not good, it's just double bad. At first we thought maybe their mistaken opinion of Irish coffee might be using Baleys instead of Irish whiskey, but the drinks were too weak even for that. Who knows what they're doing there, but I suggest you stick to the beers and the tacos. One nice thing is that during happy hour the appetizers are two for one, which is good because I would have been extra angy if I really had to pay $12.00 for that dried out mini slab of leather that they called ribs. With so many nice places around, I would choose another place to really eat and drink, but this is okay for a quick one. Pros: It's a handy place for some quick bar food Cons: The food and drinks quality isn't that great more

Good brunch, terrible service 10/19/2007

Gone to Ike's a few times and the experience is usually the same with one or two exceptions. The atmosphere is great and the food is good with the brunch being the highlight, but the service is often spotty to awful to downright rude.\r The last visit was for brunch and we had reservations. The hostess was completely clueless and did not seat us until 15minutes after arrival even thought the table was available just not bussed. The server did come by, nor did anyone come by for 20 minutes until we finally flagged someone down. The waitress was actually quite nice, but the waitress for the group next to us was very rude to the table. We both were celebrating birthdays.\r I love the weekender Bloody Mary, but I will find other options on a Sunday especially for a group. The food is good, but not outstanding and not enough to sustain another try. Such a disapointment considering Mpls ever changing food scene as of late. I know it's a chain of sorts but I expected better. Pros: Atmosphere, Brunch Cons: Service is awful. more

Great late nite eats. 8/7/2007

Wandered around and stumbled upon Ike's late at nite. The hostess was friendly and helpful when we asked to see a menu, she gave a great suggestion for desert. The rediculous chocolate cake was rediculously good and so was the quesadila. Nice place! Pros: Great cake! Cons: Small more

Bad bad bad all the way around 4/24/2007

We must have come on an off night, because it was the worst dining experience in memory. The place is mostly a bar, no matter where you sit, there is the huge bar right next to you. The food was absolutely awful. Nothing was good. The steaks were over done, even the waitress insisted that we send them back when she saw them. There was a weird spice mix on them, which was not on the menu and was not edible. The dessert (a fudge something or other) was rock hard, it about flew off my plate when I tried cutting into to. We took another couple here for a special dinner, and spent well over $200. It was embarrassing to ""treat"" them to such a poor meal. The next day I just had to call and tell them how awful it was, and the manager was not helpful at all. I emailed the owner and never heard back. I have never wanted to demand my money back from a restaurant before now, but I wish I had. It was just bad bad bad. I wish I would have stuck with the burgers, I hear they are the only good thing on the menu. Pros: Nothing Cons: Everything but the waitress. more

To-Die-For Burgers 4/4/2007

Hands down the best burger I have ever had in the Twin Cities. It sends Matt's and the 5-8 packin'. Come back for brunch (with a group!) and order up one of their ginormous bloodies. So delicious! more

Bloody Mary called ""The Weekender"" 6/30/2006

The WEEKENDER is a Bloody Mary that is a MEAL! It is served only during the weekend brunch hours, but it is worth the trip! They pack so much in this drink, you won't need to order from the menu, but don't miss their appetizers. Lots of variety and plenty to choose from. Fabulous! Pros: Coolest little joint in MPLS Cons: Very busy during lunch hour more

I likes Ike's 2/13/2006

Great visit! Awesome atmosphere. Awesome food; burger and fries is my second favorite in the Twin Cities (only behind an establishment in Highland). Additionally, the pot stickers are amazing! Not cheap but overall much worth it here! Pros: FOOD, atmosphere, service Cons: parking, price more
