Don't let the exterior fool you!

We were in town visiting our son at college, (Rose-Hulman) for parents weekend. We were trying out a few places for next year's graduation dinner. I think we found the place! The menu has exciting entrées and the food was delicious! The outside is a little funky,?as is the parking, but the food and... read more

Had a wonderful meal in April at J. Ford's. I went to school in Terre Haute but had never eaten there. I was surprised - the exterior is not the best and it is between two cinder block hotels so expectations were unsure. We did have the side room. It's a bit tight for a group of 10+ but we... More

From the chef to the wait staff, these people know what they're doing. Be prepared to pay more, but you will get great quality. Some of the best steaks around, but you can not go wrong with one of the evening specials either. One of the best meals I've had was a brined, smoked and fried chicken. Too good to... More

The steak served is on par with any steak at any restaurant. Only Kobe or Waygu would exceed the quality J. Ford's found here. A great steak is more than the meat. It is how well it is prepared, as in seasoned and cooked. The service was impeccable. Kudos to J. Ford's I have es.had the good fortune to have... More

Always a great meal. I make a reservation for our Anniversary. They give us an Anniversary menu. It's a good place for that Special night out. More pricey than a regular Steak House but the meal is the best. Good place to treat yourself and friends.

After having lived in the Terre Haute area for over 18 years my wife and I finally got the opportunity to have dinner at the Black Angus. If I had know what we had been missing we would have gone here years ago! Quite possibly the best food in all of the Wabash Valley. We came here at about 5:30pm... More

Nice little place that serves some big meat and a wide variety of other things. Capable service by the dude with the handlebar mustache. Mainly steaks at our table and all were the temperature ordered (a la carte for sides). A standout was the pork belly. The have done a nice job transforming a commercial space not built as a...

Recently met a friend at J. Ford's for dinner and yet again, I wasn't disappointed. I tried an appetizer AND dessert, something I don't normally do - the pork bites and raspberry donut holes - and they were absolutely delicious. As usual, the wait staff was polite, knowledgeable, professional, and attentive. Visited with both Jeff and Kelly at my table... More

What a great restaurant! It's small and intimate with a great bar. Our food was wonderful. The smoked fried chicken was tender full of flavor. Not something you find on many restaurant menus. The grilled salmon was excellent and perfectly done. The risotto balls were excellent as well. We have had their beef in the past and as you would... More
