Can't understand how this place stays in business. If you like bland, tasteless food, it's for you. Their catering business must keep them afloat, and banquet food is better. Regular cafeteria line food is not good. Salads, vegetables, and desserts ok, but skip the entrees.

We drive to Greenwood, IN from the NE side of Indianapolis a couple times per month specifically to eat at Jonathan Byrds. The food is excellent and the portions are very large. I do have one suggestion for the cafeteria. They need to eliminate the Take Home neon sign on the front of the building which can lead someone to... More

The food is sometimes inconsistent, sometimes good and sometimes just ok. They do have good desserts consistently. We live close, so we have been here many times. Recently they have closed off part of the restaurant which has not pleased some of the customers, I guess because they have not been as busy over the last year or two.

Byrd's always has great food, that is why we chose this as our venue. We should have read our contract better though as some of the food items were not what we had discussed two weeks prior to the event. But everything went off without a hitch. (Except for us.) Everyone we talked with had no idea there were any... More

We use to love to eat here, but when we stopped in today, we were shocked to see that the place was half the size it used to be and that they did not have the selection of foods we were used to seeing. If we would have not been hungry, we would not have stayed.

After going to the drive-thru 3 times within the month, I have learned that they never have anything listed on their menu! I am so disappointed because this used to be a reasonable place to go. They only have 3 pies available: coconut creme, toll house, and Oreo, but they have several listed on their menu. Each time I've been... More

This long established Central Indiana restaurant, although a shell of it's former self, is still a great place to eat. Conveniently located off I-65 at the Greenwood exit, the current eatery occupies only a portion of building. However, don't be deceived - the food is as good as ever. They make some of the best fried chicken you will ever... More
