My wife and I returned to this wonderful restaurant on August 25th and had a wonderful meal. Our server, Jazz, made us feel very welcome and was very attentive to our needs. This is quickly becoming our favorite "soul food" restaurant.

On Thursday, June 9th, my wife and I visited this place. We both are big fans of Southern cooking, barbecue and soul food. This place does not disappoint. We were greeted by a very enthusiastic hostess and our waitress was friendly and efficient. My wife...had the Red Velvet Chicken and Waffles and I had the catfish dinner. Everything was delicious! We will be back!More

Had to go back twice!!! Food was very good. Met the owner and loved the story behind the business. We had a party of 10 and everyone enjoyed their food. Went back the next day for lunch. The fried chicken, string beans, dressing, greens, banana...pudding and peach cobbler were my favorite!More

The fried chicken pot pie was incredible. Fried chicken is well seasoned and crispy with huge just right waffles. Would absolutely go back for more.

Visited this past weekend with a large group. Staff were great about accommodating us and splitting us up a necessary due to co-vid. Everyone loved what they ordered and we pretty much covered the menu. The meatloaf is a popular dish. I had the rib...tips, collard greens, and yams. They were great. Took home the banana pudding and peach cobber and both were awesome. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We will go back.More

Amazing! Best cabbage I’ve ever had. I did a vegetable plate and everything was so good. My husband ordered the fried chicken and said it was perfect. We waited 40 minutes for a table but it was worth it

I had a very pleasant eating experience at His Place Eatery. I chose the meatloaf as my entree with sides of cabbage & bake beans. The food was great & tasted home made. I saw another patron eating some chili & since I didn’t see...it on the menu I asked about it. I ended up also ordering a bowl of amazing chili to eat. I would recommend this place highly as a dining destination.More

The food is amazing! I had to sample everyone's food because it all just looked gooooood & found that it tasted incredible! The rib tips, the chicken & waffles, the meatloaf and fried catfish were worth every penny! Then follow it up with banana pudding...and you have yourself a great meal,More

Stopped by for take out after work one night. Everything we got was AMAZING. Fish and chicken were great, but the sides put the meal over the top. Stuffing and gravy stole the show. And their cornbread is not sweet - the way He intended...it!!!More

Read positive reviews on line & a new article in the Indianapolis Star so we decided to take a drive & try His Place. SO glad we did. Saturday around noon arrival & we were seated right away. Looks like the restaurant is undergoing a...renovation, which when we asked was confirmed & that it will be about 2 weeks to completion. Our server, Micha M couldn't have been more helpful. She was so kind & talked about the menu in depth, which we totally appreciated. She checked on us throughout to be sure we had everything we needed/wanted. You can sample the sides to determine what you would like & we did. In the end I ordered the catfish entree that came with 2 sides. I chose the candied yams & green beans. First, the catfish. It was delicious, lightly breaded & fried to perfection. The yams were delicious with all the brown sugary flavor that comes along with them. The green beans were, hands down, the best I've ever tasted, at any restaurant. The cornbread is the Jiffy mix & was ok. For a soul food restaurant, I would have expected homemade but perhaps with the renovations, they don't have enough oven space to do this. My husband got the turkey Manhattan. He loved it. The potatoes are cooked with skin on so you will get chunks sometimes, not that it took away from the taste. The turkey is smoked & has a good flavor. His dinner came with one side & he chose the collard greens. They were delicious & cooked so well that even the stems were soft & flavorful! He commented that he hadn't had greens this good since his Mother made them. We wanted to take dessert home with us - but they don't have the carrot cake because of the renovations & limited oven space & the banana pudding would have taken another 30 minutes so we just got the peach cobbler to go. Later I had a bit of it & it was good, not the best I've had,. Would we go again? You bet! This is a wonderful little spot that we are so happy to have found. The owner & main chef walked around to each table to ensure all were enjoying their food. The service here is wonderful, so friendly! On our next trip, we'll take a group of friends with us! Be advised that if you go on Sunday, they are usually very busy so plan to wait a bit but it will be worth it.More
