Very good food!!

This was our first time at The Coachman. There were 12 of us together. The waitress was very nice, the service / food was fast, and everything was great. It was a little more expensive than we expected but the steaks were definitely awesome!!!!

Nice selection of food. Food was prepared as ordered. Service was fair, our waitress seemed distracted. She was busy reading a book and forgot about us for long periods of time. Price was fair. Would consider eating here again if traveling through.

The service is always good here as is the food. The fish is always prepared perfectly. The breaded tenderloin is one of the top two I have ever eaten. Nothing we have ever eaten here has disappointed us. Good salads and seafood. You always know you will be treated well and served delicious food here.

It was a very cold and ugly night when our group descended on this establishment. The service was fair to good. The menu had a good range from sandwiches to good steak. The drinks were reasonable altho the selection wasn't the best. The décor is of an old style restaurant. It is an independent so you're not quite sure what... More

Was waiting to pick up a friend from Indianapolis Airport & his flight was delayed. Had taco soup & three beers. The soup was excellent, as were the beers. The atmosphere is like a West Texas roadhouse. Lots of nostalgic signs on the walls. A lot of regulars at the bar & they made an outsider feel welcome.

Steak and seafood place. We have been there many times for the food and fun experience. Not a place (outside for kids) but that is why we like it. Small dance floor on deck makes it easy to use when that right song is played by one of their (mostly rock) bands.

Food very good for the price. Service above reproach. Felt the price point was a little high if atmosphere and service not factored in. Overall good experience.

When we lived in Hendricks County. The Coachman was where we would plan our lunch or dinner for our out of town guest. We have had birthday luncheons there many times. From their fried mushrooms or any other appetizer to their cod fish or breaded tenderloins everything I have ever ordered there was absolutely delicious. Great service is also a... More

I have been going to The Coachman from the day it opened. Sadly, it seems to have gone downhill in the last 5 years or so. The previous time I went, my steak tasted like Ponderosa. This time I got the special Tilapia Alexander. When it arrived it tasted very fishy. After further inspection it looked not cooked. Finally I... More
