We were greeted so nicely which made us feel right at home immediately. The bartender was top notch all evening with regard to menu and bar recommendations. The menu is extensive and I chose a blackened chicken salad which did not disappoint. The creamy chicken soup was a great starter and I look forward to going back!

was in indy for two weeks and had several meals (lunch, dinner, drinks) over my stay and the food was consistently very good - taste, temp, value, service, decor, friendliness, staff/mgmt. it's what i was hoping for...bread pudding is all that!

We didn't want to go to a national chain that we could eat at when at home. We found this place thanks to Tripadvisor, my new go-to link while traveling. One of the specials that night was a marinated steak and it was definitely "Special". I don't usually order steak but this reminded me of a place we ate at... More

Have been going here off and on over the years. Food is a good value but the inside decor is very dark, 80ish, and needs a fresh, bright new facelift. Years ago, they used to offer wonderful croissants complimentary with the meal. They have discontinued this and now charge $1 per croissant, and then only if you ask for them.... More

I love this restaurant! Pleasant hostess, waiters and waitresses. My favorite meal is the filet with a baked potato, salad and a side of seasonal vegetables! Also good is the mahi mahi sandwich with fries and a side of cole slaw. The chicken noodle soup is delicious! One of the best I have ever eaten. Chicken piccata is delicious, as... More

We had traveled to Indianapolis last weekend and stayed at a local hotel. The Charleston restaurant was right next door, and since we didn't want to drive anymore we walked over there for dinner. We were seated right away and the decor was very cool. Brick walls, gas lights on the walls and a wine cellar feeling. Rather dark and... More

We went for my wifes birthday as she's seen the ads on TV and always thought it looked good. Well when we went in the place looks very nice and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The service was quick and the prices weren't to bad. However when we got our food it went down from there.... More

seating was quick for lunch since we got there early. the lights were dim which gave it some atmosphere. I had a hard time hearing the person sitting across from me. the acoustics in this place is horrible. I had a reuben. it was pretty good but I would rather have had the thousand island dressing on the sandwich instead... More
