I ate here twice within a few weeks during my visits to the area. The salmon was cooked perfectly each visit and went well on top of a bed of rice and asparagus. The wait staff was attentive. They don’t take reservations on Saturday nights.

My husband and I stopped in for an early dinner on Saturday and decided to eat in the bar. We shared the Greuben-a grouper Reuben sandwich-and the sweet potato fries. Both were very good. My husband doesn't typically like fish but he enjoyed this sandwich....More

Jake, I'm coming back for that prime rib. Sorry we couldn't make it back before our flight back home but the very next time I go to Indianapolis I'm coming back. Food was good but the service, Jake, made the visit worthwhile. Friends, when you...More
