We had a 7 pm dinner and the restaurant was half full. Service was very good. We both had the Crab Crusted Halibut which was very good. It came on a bed of baby spinach surrounded by diced roasted potatoes. I had a French Onion Soup and we both had Caesar Salad. After dinner we shared a Peach Cobbler which... More

The food is okay. For the price we paid I've had a lot better at other restaurants. But to be honest you really are there for the atmosphere. The food is good enough, but the views of the city from the rotating restaurant atop the Hyatt is amazing. I've been here a few times including 2 proms and our 5th... More

My wife and I celebrated our 30 year anniversary here. We ordered the baked pear appetizer, which was interesting but not compelling. I ordered the prime rib and my wife had scallops. THE PRIME RIB WAS THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD, HANDS DOWN. It was a very generous portion, cooked just right, and incredibly juicy. My wife also greatly... More

My husband and I were in Indianapolis for a quick visit. We didn't have much time to tour the city. So, we decided to eat here for the view of the city. I would consider the cost of the restaurant to include the cost of an attraction. The food was great, but it wouldn't be worth the cost if the... More

I made this reservation because my son really wanted to experience the view. Reviews led me to believe that the food wound be a disappointment. How wrong I was! A food snob might not be impressed, but my party of three was. The view is great. We were seated promptly. The service was unpretentious and enthusiastic. We were never rushed... More

We have been to the Eagle's nest 3 times and have enjoyed every visit. The atmosphere is wonderful as you rotate and enjoy an "eagles eye" view of the city. The staff is friendly and helpful. The service can be a little slow but I think they do it so you can slow down and enjoy a full rotation during... More

The Eagle's Nest is always on my list for dinner, when I'm in Indianapolis, visiting or on business. I was grew up there in Naptown, and not only is the food there delicious, and dessert excellent. The "Rotating View Restaurant" of the whole city is AWESOME!...It give me the perspective of what it is now, and what it was when... More

Been here twice now, and have come to the conclusion that you are paying for the view, not the food. The steak was dry, and obviously not the best cut of meat - which is confusing when you order a $40 filet. The lamb was ok but wasn't worth $40- and we only got two small pieces. The tea tasted...
