Husband and I stopped in for lunch on a day of small business holiday shopping...Restaurant was cozy, great service and great food. Husband had the Reuben sandwich and I had the crab cakes --both were excellent. The crab cakes rivaled any we've had out east!...What a find!!!More

Very happy with my experience at the Evergreen!! The staff is super friendly and the food is unparalleled compared to other restaurants near Rochester! The quality of a big city restaurant in a small town!! Definitely worth a visit!

Date night with the hubs. Hadn’t been here in a long time since it is quite a drive for us. So disappointed. Dining room floor was filthy with discarded fries, ketchup, and dirty napkins folded under table legs. No blinds on window with glaring sunset....Vinyl tablecloths. Food was just as bad. Southwest egg rolls undercooked inside, veggie burger had weird consistency, sweet potato fries undercooked, and the Mac n cheese was, well, NOT Mac n cheese. No cheese sauce, but big pieces of tomato, onion, shredded cheese, soggy pretzel pieces (not kidding) and the leftover bits of thrown out ham. We came early so no excuse for forgetting part of the order. Server was nice but couldn’t tell us what was even in the veggie burger. And the music was blaring ‘80’s rock metal bands. Which I like, in a bar setting, not while dining.More

Service was outstanding. Great surroundings and clean. It was just breakfast food and nothing special. Expensive for the quality and quantity of food. Will try a dinner in near future.

This is one of the benefits of Trip Advisor is finding gems like Evergreen that are not on main highways. From the chic decor, pleasant hip staff (yes, that's you Brittany) and the well defined menu, Evergreen is a place I will find again. The...bruschetta was piled high with fresh tomato and cheese (I would have preferred a bit more basil, but hey, chef's choice). The steak was perfectly prepared. Finally, there was the multilayered chocolate cake with an amazing coffee buttercream icing.More

I put off going to this restaurant for years because rumor had it the prices were high and the servings were small. Now I am so sorry I listened. I have had the oven roasted chicken once and the steak sandwich on another occasion. The...food is amazing. And I took home leftovers. The serving sizes are more than enough. The service is excellent. The owner came out to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. I highly recommend Evergreen. It is my favorite local restaurant now.More

This is a fantastic restaurant in downtown Rochester, Indiana. We have made the 40-mile drive from our home on multiple evenings to enjoy their food. The food is excellent and the service is great as well. On our last visit I had shrimp scampi and...it was perfect.More

Coming back to Indy from a weekend riding our tandem bike with friends in Shipshewana, we wanted something different, so we stopped at Evergreen—a little jewel in mid north Indiana. This is our third time, and we have been pleasantly surprised each time. It’s pricey,...but the food is excellent, and the service friendly. (Here’s the featured Moroccan spiced rockfish with almond apricot couscous and Brussels sprouts.) We shared a dessert—homemade rhubarb crisp with vanilla ice cream. Perfect.More

Emphasis on seafood. Very disappointing, overpriced for what you get. Fish of the day was branzino, described as Mediterranean sea bass, was $29. environment and service was very nice, food was mediocre. Wine list very lacking. Not worth another try.
