My husband and I went with another couple to celebrate their wedding anniversary. We'd never heard of J. Ford's before--but we live about an hour from Terre Haute. The outside of the building in no way prepares you for the food you are about to experience! We arrived about 20 minutes before our reservation, so we went into the bar.... More

Prepare yourself for a memorable dining experience! We entered the restaurant and my first thought was that we were seriously underdressed, but then I realized that much of the wait staff was wearing T-shirts and jeans. We were served by the most attentive, knowledgable, and courteous servers found anywhere. The food was meticulously prepared and every bite was a delight,... More

First time but definitely not the last time. I had no idea Terre Haute had a place worthy of a much bigger city. A true 5 star kinda place. Every detail was there. Food, atmosphere, drinks, staff are all there. It was a truly memorable meal and a very pleasant surprise.

I am sorry to have to write this review. Two years ago, the food at this restaurant was really outstanding. But now the quality has slipped. For two meals now, a few months apart, we've been served a lackluster salad, and when we deviate from the specials or beef and just order from the general menu,our food has been just... More

In the city for one evening, so I consulted Tip Advisor and was steered right. Waiter Jeff was friendly and knowledgeable. Lots of gray choices, but I was not really hungry, so I had the 4 cold shrimp cocktail--ship perfectly prepared, though I might like a little more heat. Cocktail perfect--Grey Goose vodka martini, up, 2 drops vermouth, bleu cheese... More

I've become a monthly visitor to J. Ford's and I'm never disappointed. Each and every visit, my meal has been simply excellent, the service is top notch, and the wait staff professional and knowledgeable. I am barely seated before a waiter sets my usual drink in front of me - that's the attention they give their customers. I always make... More

Had heard about the J Ford's Black Angus for years but never had occasion to try it. What a wonderful restaurant with great food and great, friendly service. We will seek opportunities to return soon.

My husband and I recently stopped in for a glass of wine, and ended up staying for dinner in the bar. Great local food, excellent service and atmosphere make this a wonderful place for a Thursday night drink stop or a full dinner. It's one of the best steak places in Terre Haute. The owners just renovated it and the... More

while I can never get past the fine offerings of the daily specials, the menu offerings are outstanding. Five star food prepared to perfection. The service is outstanding with the ownners visiting your table just to make sure everything is perfect. Not a cheap date but the best never is.
