We traveled into Indy and were looking forward to eating here. The food was ok but nothing great but average. I prefer my Alfredo sauce to theirs . Service was pretty good but we wouldn't recommend to anyone else looking for a great experience. The...More

We had a blast in the party room reserved for our group, and the pre-ordered meals were delicious. It was a bit hard to order things off the menu in this way(group pre-order)

This was a first time visit, but I don't think I will go back. The food was just okay, tasted really processed and canned. I thought it was over priced for the quality. The service was good, and the staff was friendly and nice

I recently ate here with a group with a pre-determined menu. The food was good, but the portion size was a little small. There was a young woman who went around making balloon creations for a donation. Very cute!

There are parking meters on Meridian and a parking garage about two blocks South of the restaurant. You could park at Circle Center, but it would be a little bit of a walk too.

Yes, I know they used to, but normally the wait is not that long & you can always walk across the street to the Mall & shop for a while IF the wait is too long.
