Most Viewed Restaurants in Indianapolis

  • Mikado Japanese Restaurant: Mikado Japanese Restaurant

    by Granger44 Written Aug 26, 2002

    Somewhat pricey but well worth the money.

    In addition to regular dining areas, it has teppanyaki tables where the multi-course meal is prepared in front of you, as well as a sushi bar.

    Favorite Dish: Surprisingly it's the pork chops I order every time I dine here. Glazed with a sweet sauce, they practically melt in your mouth.

    The Corner Wine Bar: The Corner Wine Bar

    by Cabana_Boy Updated Dec 25, 2002

    Eventually, there will be a lot of restaurants located on my Indianapolis page, but this is my favorite restaurant for actual "dining." Remember, Uncle Phil said there are restaurants for eating and restaurants for dining.

    The Corner Wine Bar accomplishes a nice balance between the two. The restaurant is quite small, almost doubling in size during the summer months when outdoor seating is available. And as the name suggests, there is an excellent wine list. The Corner Wine Bar is also attached to The Wellington, which is one of my all time favorite bars in Indy (check out my Nightlife section for the Welly).

    Favorite Dish: I like to try different bottles of Merlot taking suggestions form the wait staff. For food, I usually order one of their nightly specials. The menu is difficult to classify because it can have lots of items taken from different cooking styles (French, Italian, Asian, American), but everything is done up well in terms of presentation, quality and quantity.

    Be sure to ask how big the entree's are before you order. The prices seem hight until you realize most entree's can feed two people. The chicken scallopini (sp) can easily feed two people. Let your sever know you plan on sharing and they will slit the meal on two plates.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Scallopini (sp)

    Hard Rock Cafe Indianapolis: Hard Rock Cafe Indianapolis

    by TravellerMel Written Nov 26, 2013

    Another great location for this American food franchise. Room in the back is dedicated to Gary, IN natives The Jacksons - especially Michael and Janet. Party room was bustling (a Christian Youth Conference was in town). This location holds a special place in my heart, because in 2005 when I was evacuated from Hurricane Katrina, I found myself at this café for lunch. I talked to the bartender, just conversationally, that I had only packed enough clothing for 3 days, as I thought I would be back home by now. The staff pitched in money and the cafe's manager presented me with a Hard Rock shirt - he said, even if I only slept in it, it would help a little. I was very touched, and remember that kindness to this day. And I still have the shirt! :-)

    Favorite Dish: Had the turkey burger and fries - still too large to eat the whole thing, but oh-so-good!

    Old Point Tavern: Drinks on Mass Ave

    by staindesign Written Dec 2, 2013

    Old Point is on the corner of Mass ave. It's been around forever and has a very local flavor. The staff is awesome, the drinks are strong, and the food is delicious! Since the place sits on a corner there are lots of windows to people watch and they have a big patio during the summer. This place is a great place to visit before a show at the Murat or to just hang with friends. Mass ave is an indy district that should be called Indy's "Theatre distrct".

    Favorite Dish: Best Chicken Nachos in town! They can feed 2-3 ppl easily for $9! And they have a rockin' ceazer salad.

    The Thirsty Scholar: Beautiful Cafe

    by staindesign Written Oct 24, 2013

    I have fallen in love with this little gem. It's a coffee cafe that sells coffee, beer, wine, and desserts. It has a European cafe/ 20's speak easy style. The huge windows let's lots of light in even on gray days.

    Favorite Dish: The brewed coffee was delicious!

    A famous restaurant line: HOOTERS...
    Food is not so great but it's not the goal, girls are short dressed, when there is a race we can see it on giant screens.
