This is a large bar which seems to cater to large groups, or parties. Mechanical bull seemed to be the big attraction here, although the bartender did make be a very yummy drink when I couldn't decide what I wanted and hit the nail right on the head.

I personally didn't care for the house music but it was a cool place with the drunks on the bull to entertain us. That lady running it has full control of how long people can be on it!

I was in Indy for a conference and needed to find a quick place for dinner. There must have been 10,000 people looking for a quick dinner that night! We stumbled on Cadillac Ranch and loved it. I actually live in Indy, but had never eaten there before. We were able to get in right away with no wait. The... More

We waited for over ten minutes then had to seat ourselves. My husband had to go find our menus. Our waitress didn't show up to our table for ten minutes while we sat there being stared out by the two bartenders who played on their phones the whole time. We finally got to order just to be told that they... More

I was in town for a volleyball tourney. We decided to eat there for dinner one night since it was off the beaten path and wasn't crowded. The atmosphere was awesome. They have a mechanical bull and lots of TVs. That was great, the food was really good. The bad part was the service. Our server was so slow and... More

Let me start by saying I should probably not have ventured out during the Big 10 championship weekend. Downtown was a mad house. I wanted to experience local food outside the hotel, however, so I looked up some menus and decided I wanted to eat here (I was craving a steak). I should have just turned around and left when...

The menu at Cadillac ranch is pretty diverse. A little light on quantity compare to price. Early evening is light on diners but it picks up greatly as the evening goes. The are a about 5 beers on tap which is small considering this is more of a bar type atmosphere. When the evening gets late about 9:00 the dj... More

This place was absolutely packed with Hawk fans! We were unable to get in through the front door, but managed to squeeze in through the interior entrance that connected the bar to BarTini, and let me tell you, it was wall to wall with Hawkeyes! There was tons of people partying it up in this bar, making it for an... More
