While on a work trip where I was staying very close by, a few coworkers and I ate dinner here. Although it doesn't look like much from the outside... I loved the quaint atmosphere inside. The food was quite good, service was just ok. I would go back here if staying nearby again.

We had an early dinner here before going to the State Fair and used a Groupon coupon which was honored easily. The server was pleasant but even though we were the only couple there so early, it seemed to take a very long time to receive the different parts of our order. The food was as advertised and above average... More

Spent a weekend down in Indianapolis on a family trip and found "The Library" and thought we give it a try. Restaurant had a great feel and we liked the selections on the menu. By far, steak and beef entrees are the house specialties, but I decided on the grilled salmon, rice pilaf, and season vegetables. Drinks and bread were... More

They have a nice, set menu that they do well with. The food is excellent. I had the perfectly butterflied shrimp with heavenly stuffing and a garden salad with in house made blue cheese dressing. My table mates (I confess we shared all) had cajun shrimp fettucini, squash and zucchini with red onions, garlic buttered smashed potatoes and chicken fettucini... More

Amy was my server and I was so pleasantly surprised with the food. I read reviews that were average. The food was great, the price was right, the service was incredible, and I will definitely return whenever I'm in Indy!

We were only staying 1 night in Indy and were looking for a local restaurant (non-fast food) and stumbled on this one and were pleasantly surprised! Arrived for dinner on a Friday night & were shown to a table right away. Had to wait a bit (maybe 15 minutes for our waiter to appear). For the rest of the night... More

The Library has become the place to eat whenever we end up in Indianapolis! A bit disappointed that the prime rib is only offered Tuesday through Saturday and we were there on a Monday! For appetizer, we had the calamari and it was excellent mixed with other fried veggies! I ordered the evening special, bbq pork chop which was probably... More

My wife and I drove in from Dayton to spend the day at the Indianapolis zoo, and stayed at the nearby Marriott. TripAdvisor has never steered us wrong and The Library showed up with positive reviews. The atmosphere is very cool; it was formerly a high-end french restaurant and has some decor to suit. However, the real reason to come... More
