Visiting Minneapolis for the Frozen Faceoff. Weekend Brunch at Ike's is a must! Eggs, pancakes, sausage and bacon are served family style - all you can eat. Giant caramel rolls to get things started. The atmosphere is old time classic American fine dining.

There aren't a lot of unique things you can do in an airport. Go in here and get the giant bloody mary with friends and order a side of fries with it. Makes for a great stop.

We had some time between flights so decided to spend some down time at Ikes. We've been here before and liked it before also. Each time my husband had their blood mary and enjoyed it both times. We all had burgers this time and were all happy with them...the service was also excellent. We like the atmosphere here and would... More

Of course the bloody marys and ginormous cinnamon rolls are great during brunch, but I highly recommend Ike's for drinks and dinner when spending an evening downtown. (Then head into their neighbor, Lyon's Pub, for an equally awesome time.) Ike's has great appetizers, wine, and main courses. Close to everything, rarely too full to get a table right away.

The place has "cocktails" in its name yet they served a traditional gin martini in a lowball glass. We purposely drove quite a ways for the atmosphere and belief we'd get a great traditional cocktail here for a woman who's from the rat pack generation. Disappointing. I still can't get past that we really like the atmosphere and decor yet... More

I stopped at Ikes on February 24th with 45 minutes before boarding. It took 15 minutes before a waitress stopped at my table. I ordered a beer and burger, medium rare. After a half hour I told the waitress I needed t get my food or I had to leave. My food suddenly appeared. The nice couple at the table... More

When I visited this restaurant at the airport, I waited over 40 minutes for my meal (and I ordered a general sandwich off the menu, nothing special). I left at that point, as I would have had to wolf down my food in order to make my flight. While I have eaten here once before and thought it was OK,... More

Ike's is a nice place to have breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. The food is good, reasonably priced and they have a vintage vibe. The downtown location is the one to check out. There are one or two at the airport and it's just not close to the same.

The original Ike's; they now have several locations. Upbeat and modern atmosphere, but it retains the feel of a mid-20th century steak and martini establishment. Many good appetizers, including the pot stickers, the chicken satay, and the crab cakes. I've heard good stories about the burgers, but have not had one. Last visit, I had the walleye, which I would... More

Went for a happy hour and stayed for dinner. Great selection of beers. Had the calamari and onion rigs at the bar. Calamari was like rubber..hard. Onion rings were good. For the main course I had blackened walleye. It was really good. Will go for the atmosphere.

Thank kamada199

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.
