Service was poor. Virtually ignored, food was cold server finally came back to check on us 20 minutes later too late for them to recook it. Took forever to get our checks and then for her to come back and collect! She Wasn't concerned about about our cold food didn't send a manager or anything appropriate. Don't mind the prices... More

McGraw's is a favorite among the steak eaters of my family and is a "go to" place for a birthday meal or other special occasion. We particularly like the view of the river if you are there early enough in the evening. This is a steak place; though they offer a very nice pork chop, catfish, and a walleye entree... More

Decided to try this place for a good steak. The view inside and outside is beautiful. The hostess did a great job letting us know our table wasn't ready but we could wait in the bar. The bartender was quick with our drinks and recommending food items. The food was ok...and for what you pay I was expecting great but... More

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.
