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.

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

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.
