Lakes Area Dining: Iven's on a budget is still delicious


With fame comes fortune.

Or in the case of Iven’s on the Bay, one of the lakes area’s beacons of fine dining, the preconceived notion maybe it takes a fortune to eat at the famed restaurant.

In some cases this is true. For instance an 8-ounce filet mignon, which is accompanied by rosemary Yukon potatoes, grilled asparagus and a garlic demi glaze will cost you $37. That’s the most expensive item on the menu.
