We chose The Eagle's Nest because of the menu we saw online. We were sadly disappointed because they had changed the menu an not updated their site. What we ordered was good, but nothing special. Everyone should visit a revolving restaurant at some point in their life. It had been years since we'd been in one and it's a kitschy... More

Have been here several times and always look forward to going back. We enjoyed the views of the city. We had drinks and appetizers. Waiter was friendly. Not a place to go if you are in a hurry.

For my birthday dinner, our son took us to the Eagles Nest, appropriately named because you have an "eagles-eye view" of the city. The restaurant is located on the very top floor of a popular downtown hotel. The floor in the dining area rotates slowly so your view is constantly changing. The view is especially beautiful at night with all... More

It takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes to complete the panoramic views of downtown Indianapolis but it's time well spent. The views are nice and the service is equally well. The restaurant is located on the rooftop of the Hyatt Regency hotel. Valet is $30 for parking but there is $15 discount when to dine at the restaurant. Just... More

You don't go to a revolving restaurant for the food. While the service was outstanding, the menu is a bit too ambitious. The tuna tartar tasted fishy and they were out of prime rib, their signature dish. The lobster stew was ok, but the real winner was the cookies and cream cake. Overall, it was a romantic evening, but you... More

This place is amazing. The view is spectacular. The food is superb. We absolutely enjoyed everything from that wonderful salted caramel walnut bread (so good), to the delicious, tender prime rib, to the amazing creme brûlée. The service is incredible, the waiters are very courteous and attentive. We will definitely visit again next time we're in Indianapolis. Definitely recommend this... More

We had a business group meeting with 6 people at the Eagle's nest. I am new to Indy so it was nice way to see the whole city from a unique perspective. Be sure to use the valet at the Hyatt. There is a special discount provided to patrons of the restaurant. The service was very attentive and friendly. I... More

Celebrated our 30th anniversary at his restaurant and was not disappointed. Jeffery our attendant was knowledgeable and very attentive. He gave us a brief description of the "restaurant in the round" which we found very interesting. This is not a place we can do every Friday night, but on the special occasions, absolutely.

My family and I came the day after Thanksgiving. Three of us were from out of state and wanted to see downtown Indianapolis and thought this would be a good way to get a good view. The view is great but the food was nothing special and the service was some of the worst I've had in a while. We... More
