Fabulous steakhouse in tucked away in the Midwest.

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... read more

the current location is small and intimate - can't wait to see their new location in a historic building downtown!

The restaurant has a nice vibe with good service. Had various specials apart from the ones on the regular menu. Food was good as well!

We read several reviews about the food being great, so we had expectations that were, happily, met. We had the lobster corn dogs, which were a novelty for us and tasty, but we preferred the house special scallops appetizer more. The roasted beet salad was superb, and the house special Steak Diane was well-prepared temperature-wise, but we found the sauce... More

Wow! Black Angus is a great gem that you would likely never think to try without getting a recommendation from a friend or a review. The menu includes a diverse selection of bold and adventurous ingredients that insure you can select something you haven't had before and won't be struggling to find something interesting. The service is very friendly, helpful,... More

Just had maybe the best filet I have ever had here. The whole meal was wonderful. We would drive across the state to eat here again.

where do I start...this place is the BEST hidden gem in Terre Haute! I had the best meal there and crave to go back. When I compare my steak to other "higher" and "fancy" restaurants this place blown Every single one OUT of the water, by FAR. I tell every person who is going to the Haute to eat there.... More

I read reviews and decided to take my mother to dinner on a recent trip back home. Our servers name was Amber. Amber was knowledgable about the menu and was able to give the table guidance on food and wine. We started with the portobello fries which came with a fabulous sauce and was a crowd pleaser. Next we shared... More

It didn't look like much from the outside, but cuisine was awesome. I started with a Caesars Salad that was one of the best I've ever had. I had the filet with asparagus for my main course.
