A great place to eat whilst watching Indy go by

The best view to eat in Indianapolis in a revolving restaurant. Food and service was very good (had crab cake appetiser, steak entrée and cheesecake desert) with a reasonably extensive wine list. If you have a couple of occasions to eat in Indy plan to go here second after St Elmo steak house.

Didn't get to eat here, but went up and looked around. Very romantic setting. Also would be good for bigger groups. If I lived in Indy I would go often just for the ambiance and view. I don't know if they made my room service food but it was delicious.

This restaurant is a Must visit. It is on top of the Hyatt Regency where I'm staying in downtown Indianapolis. The views are absolutely spectacular and best of all it has a rotating restaurant so you get to see the entire downtown Indianapolis from above. The food was very good especially their shrimp cocktail. The staff is very friendly

What an awesome restaurant! A stunning view of the city (and LOVED the revolving mechanism of the restaurant to see all of downtown), accompanied by delicious food...and we couldn't have asked for a better night. Our waitress was Kathy and she did an excellent job making recommendations from the menu, as well as helping us celebrate our anniversary. We LOVED... More

Kathy, our server, made our visit to the Eagles Nest great. Her suggestions, which we took in all courses except dessert,were right on. Our meal was excellent and Kathy made our meal much more exciting than usual.

The name of the restaurant was well chosen! You have a great view of the city from this restaurant! I have only eaten here a few times and always enjoyed it! The food is always good and the service has always been outstanding! It is a bit pricey!

The view from here was fantastic. The revolving part was a little strange. The food was fantastic.Menu change seasonally so go online to check. I would recommend the prime rib Caesar salad. The cookies and cream cake was to die for. They also have a lounge so if want to see the city this is a cheaper alternative. Pricey!

We decided to go here to celebrate my husband's birthday--and we were visiting family locally so they could accompany us to "interpret" the view [buildings and parks below]. Our waiter [Kathy] was superb, and she immediately got into the spirit of the occasion by offering us a bottle of champagne to "toast." The Prime Rib was cooked to perfection, the... More

My wife and I dined here July 2015 at 7 pm. although the sun would not set by the conclusion of dinner, the view of the city was still a nice change of pace. The only reason i did not rate "excellent" is due to the limited menu. We were seated immediately, our service was great and the Filet's were... More
