During a cross-country move, I ended up in Terre Haute for the night. I had just driven through a 1000 miles of Faux News and religious radio. I assumed that I would have a wide choice of fast food drive-through locations for dinner, but I was very pleasantly surprised to find J. Ford. The food and service were excellent -... More

The best beef I have ever had. This place is an absolute gem. Its unbelievable that it is in Terre Haute. As good as or better than any five star steakhouse in a big city.

J fords is a well kept local secret. It's very small and inconspicuous from the outside, but quite lovely inside. The food is great if you like steak/meat. If you're a vegetrian, however, avoid this place at all costs because you'll leave hungry. It's also a fun place to stop and have a drink after work, as the bar is... More

I have eaten here several times over the past couple of years and I have never had a bad meal. Service has always been superb! This restaurant is my personal favorite in Terre Haute. Dining is exceptional. The restaurant will be moving next spring to a larger facility. I will definitely be there.

I had the chicken Marsala special. It was rich and delicious and came with a beautiful purple flower on top. Lovely presentation and attentive service.

I enjoyed an excellent supper in the lovely eatery tonight. Does not look like much on the outside but the interior is beautifully decorated with soft lighting and pleasant music. Great menu is supported by nightly specials. I started with a very good onion soup followed by a Caesar Salad and Oysters Rockefeller. The meal was facilitated by Taylor, a... More

We stumbled upon J Ford's when we spent the evening in Terre Haute on our cross country trek. What a gem of a restaurant! I had the NY strip and my husband had the filet. Both melt in your mouth and flavorful. I had the Indiana beet salad to start and it would be worth returning just for the salad.... More
