I grew up in the area and had a chance to return recently. McGraw's is a great update of a classic restaurant. Can't beat the location and the food was quite good. I had a great steak and the appetizers were well prepared. And the catfish that the restaurant has been known for over time is, I'm glad to say,... More

On a visit to Purdue for a tennis tournament, my daughter and I found McGraw's. The food was excellent! A very nice menu, good wine selection and the staff were A+. Friendly atmosphere with inside seating and patio seating looking over the river. We will be back!!

If you are ever in or close to Lafayette IN, or as I was, looking for somewhere for dinner while driving on I65 between Chicago and Indianapolis (or visa versa), this is the place to come. I found it using google maps and choosing where do the locals eat. Set back from the road on the river bank, the ambiance... More

I went to McGraw's with my fiancé for a celebratory dinner. The food was amazing (I had the teriyaki tips) and our server was attentive and friendly. I highly recommend it and would go back again!

We enjoyed a nice dinner at McGraw's, which is about as fancy a restaurant as you will find anywhere near Purdue. Nice location in a pretty wooded area just outside of town, with views of the Wabash River. Steaks are the main item, but the polenta entrée with roasted vegetables was quite good. The crab cake appetizer had shredded fried... More

While on a business trip, my host invited me to this restaurant. The place has a unique charm and the view of the river out of the big windows was soothing. The food and wine was good but the service was great.

This place has an amazing atmosphere. It is placed directly on the shore of the Wabash River, very near Fort Ouiatenon. It is a fine dining establishment in the Lafayette area. Priced as a high end eatery. We enjoyed a leisurely paced birthday meal here. The steaks were very good. We had sirloins and a ribeye. Both were very juicy... More

We don't eat out often, but when we do McGraw's is a favorite. Great food and atmosphere! On the Wabash river for a fantastic view. I work hard to replicate their menu....never quite make it, probably because I try to decreases the calories;)

This place is a little out of the way, but it's worth the trip! The wine list is extensive and the food doesn't disappoint. The crab cake appetizer is amazing and one of my favorites is the beef filet. Portions are good - not too huge. My husband is a fan of the catfish. Nice atmosphere, river view, great servers.

Thank Helen D
