Anyone going to The Library MUST have the prime rib but make sure you go between Tuesday through Saturday! had the 12oz and it was the best... My wife, on the other hand, ordered rib eye steak but after ordering, she told the waiter she wanted it medium rare and don't believe he noted the change as it was definitely... More

This restaurant was recommend to us, they said it was one of the best. Very disappointed in the restaurant food. Service and decor was good but the food was not as good as service. They have walleye on the menu and I haven't had walleye in a while so it sounded good. It came out warm and didn't have any... More

As I recall, the dining room had all tables, but the room had a nice feel to it. One affectionate couple was nestled at a table in a corner. The service was attentive. Our entrees of grilled salmon and fried chicken salad were very good. The desserts, crème brûlée and carrot cake, were delicious.

This restaurant is wonderful. Quality of food, service, and choices were perfect. I started with the French Onion Soup and have never seen such a huge crock.....I ate the whole thing because it was delicious but it was enough for at least two people. I highly recommend this venue.

This is a fabulous place to dine. The decore of the outside matched the inside was a unique experience. Cindy was great, she made you feel like you were at home and she took pride in providing great service. A dinning experince ont to miss if you are in indy.

Friday nights are our date nights and we try to find something new and different to hit. This time I had a groupon for The Library, for $60 worth of food for the $35 I paid for it. I don't usually like these kinds because they become confusing to me. But our over all bill after the groupon was only... More

You are greeted with professionalism and a friendly face. To this reviewer the decor is old country club and hints of charm. The food is delicious (the stuffed shrimp is a must have) and well priced. This is not Ruth Chris and it's not Texas Roadhouse. This is a happy medium that you will enjoy.

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
