Unbelievable how a place so beautiful can be tucked away just 10 minutes drive from the airport! The ambiance starts when you pull into the drive ; a large fountain, flowers gets your wonderment perking. The circle drop off with the large overhang finishes that special feeling of being cared for before any staff contact. The decor is warm and... More

The place is out by the airport on the west side of town. They have steaks, chicken, ribs and pork chops as well as some fish. I had the NY strip and my wife had the Ribeye, both were cooked just right. Our side was a potato which was good. They may be a little pricey the steaks were about... More

Friendly, lovely deco, great food, agree with "come as you are" eval ( having just come off the golf course) and fast efficient service. Our waitress, Amanda was very attentive and checked back at our table frequently to see if we needed anything. Also, provided 'to go cups' for our soft drinks.

Food was GREAT, APPS were GREAT, Amanda our server was GREAT, but the restaurant was clearly short of staff and the stress level was at a HIGH level for the employees. Had dinner here the week of June 23rd. The atmosphere is nice, but despite what looked to be a moderate crowd, the staff was clearly overwhelmed. Our server Amanda... More

They did a great job of meeting our dietary needs. In fact, it was one of the best vegan dishes I've ever had.

The Library is come-as-you-are friendly, but drop-dead delicious. Our server Amanda's recommendations were spot-on. We had the salmon cakes, the Philly Cheese Steak soup, my daughter had the ribeye and I had the stuffed shrimp. Each course was better than the last until we couldn't decide what our favorite thing was. We topped it off with the ice cream with... More

They have a fairly extensive menu. Prices were about what you would expect and the food was excellent. Service was pretty good maybe not as attentive as you expect at a fine dining establishment. They have a large outside patio area which made for a lovely dining experience.

I live in Indianapolis and eat here at least once a month. If you are looking for a nice meal in comfortable and friendly surroundings, you should try The Library. It is located about 10 minutes from downtown Indy. Having traveled a lot on business myself, this is one of my favorite places to decompress after a long day. This... More

Arrived in Indy and staying one night near airport before heading downtown. I really enjoyed the walleye seafood dish with a Kentucky bourbon beer. Brittney was my server, super nice. Relaxed and heading back to hotel! Perfect.
