“good food, good prices”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

We went to Ike's for dinner after receiving a recommendation from the desk clerk at the Holiday Inn where we were staying. It had a sports bar atmosphere in the bar but also a casual dining room for families. They offered a varied menu with lots of sandwiches and full meals. I chose the buffalo chicken sandwich and chose broccoli salad over fries. They were both delicious.
It was served on a bun that was like a Panini and the sauce was tasty. My husband had the coconut shrimp which was crispy and very tasty. He ordered the dirty rice as his side and it was also delicious. The chocolate lava cake and ice cream for dessert were also very good. Our server was very friendly and prompt. We were happy we went here for our meal after a long day on the road. I don't think we were the only ones that like this place as it was crowded with couples and families. I would recommend this place to travelers looking for a good meal.

“Fun Place To Grab Munchies”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

A great place to get munchies while cruisin through historic Abilene. Caught up with friends before hitting other spots around the area. Patty melt was yummy! Everyone enjoyed their food, and no one walked away hungry. Accomodating wait staff. Pool/game room available. Nice place to meet up or just hang out if you can dib the pool table early enough!

“Great food”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

Sports bar environment and it is exactly what you expect. Good steaks! The wait staff was a new inexperienced girl who was trying but did make a few mistakes. We were kind to a new girl. The other staff were experienced and did an excellent Job. Never beat up on a new waitress. Otherwise, a great place to eat.

“Home run on the atmosphere. Big let down on food and service.”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

They nailed the atmosphere at Ike's. But that is where it stops. Food is low-average at best. Wait staff is unmotivated and unorganized. This place has so
much potential. Hopefully some reviews will help them get better.

The cook needs to give the food some love and passion. Get rid of the curry shaker!!!!
The asian wing's were more like a brown sugar with soy sauce mix and poured over chicken strips. The chicken strips were over cooked.
The burger was OK. But could be dramatically improved by not over cooking. Butter and toast the cold bun and put more than one slice of cheese on it that looked like it just came out of the plastic wrapper.

I will return to Ike's and provide update in a few weeks.
