A good upscale choice for West Lafayette

I've been to this restaurant several times, but it appears I've never written it up. West Lafayette and Lafayette does not have many special occasion restaurants in abundance, but this would be one of them. Located on the banks of the Wabash River, with lots of windows and a few tables outside on... read more

Interesting setting overlooking the wabash river. The food is just OK and that is just too bad. The interior is dated. The seating is low end. People seem to like it and I don't get it

McGraw's is one of the best fine eating places in the Lafayette area. It certainly has the most scenic location, with picture windows overlooking the Wabash River (for very flat Indiana this is scenic!). The food is excellent, my pork chop was a large piece of meat expertly cooked. I am a big fan of pork and this was very... More

We ate at McGraw's for my nieces graduation at Purdue University. It's it's right above the river and looks like a river home. We ate at McGraw's for my nieces graduation at Purdue University.

McGraw's has great food and a great atmosphere. It has gotten substantially pricier in the past 10 years so don't expect to get out of there cheap! But the food is good and the staff is very friendly. It is also very clean and inviting. When my wife and I can afford it, it is our favorite place to go.

We had dinner at McGraw's Valentine's day evening, a night that can be problematic for some places. McGraw's handled it perfectly. This was not a romantic evening, we had two sons, a roommate, the roommate's sister and mother plus another friend so it was 8 total. My experience with a lot of places is that when the party gets big,... More

Great setting, but that fails to offset a tired and uninspired menu. They seem to handle big groups fine, but I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone expecting an exceptional meal -- the risk of disappointment is too high. Food is definitely not the main attraction. For some reason, however, the formula seems to work and reservations are a... More

McGraw's is a place we go for celebrations, or to share the venue with visitors. The fish selection is always fresh and also broad, and the beef is fantastic. There is a huge selection of wine, beer, and alcohol. The views of the Wabash are lovely any time of year, and there is dining outdoors when the weather is good.... More

We are relatively new to the area. Had heard about this place, hadn't made it out there. Friends came into town and we were all looking for something special. This was our choice. We were very surprised! The food was fantastic and the place was packed! We appreciate good food. The menu choices weren't over done, but they were plentiful.... More
