Our group of five had lunch here on Saturday, August 10, 2013 while attending the Drum Corps International Championships. This was our second time here.
The restaurant wasn't very crowded but it took over twenty minutes to be seated. Several of the tables needed to be bussed and there was no-one to clean them. Our waitress told us that she was normally the bartender, but the manager was having to tend bar because several of the scheduled waitresses failed to show up for work.
The food was okay; nothing to brag about. My wife had a salad and I had the Buffalo Shrimp Cajun style and a plate of steamed clams. Fairly expensive for what we got. Our waitress / bartender spilled an entire glass of ice water she had just brought to the table all over the table. She used her arm as a squeegee and wiped the ice and water off the table and then used her shoe to push it all under the table next to us.
The location is great but there are far better restaurants nearby.

I have eaten here twice while traveling to Indy. The food is not good and dont eat the thousand Island dressing for the fried pickles is is always spoiled. It is pricey because of the location near the stadium lots of other places around there to eat! Waitesses are lazy and too busy flirting. Good luck getting a refill on a soft drink. They wont come back to your table.

I have been to " Hooters" three times in the last month. Im over it. You can do better. It is a very large place but on game nights you cant find a place to sit down. ( Not Hooters fault ). Food is just ok. Nothing to brag about. Drinks are average priced. Location is good if you are going to Bankers life Fieldhouse for a game.Wait staff have a tendency to sit down and want to talk with you. I dont really enjoy that. To be honest I dont care what they have to say . After a few minutes I realize all they are after is a bigger tip anyway. It is just an average place in my eyes. Nothing to brag about. You can do better.

Stopped here before the colts game. Place was extremely busy but there was plenty of help. Service was very good and the food and drink orders came out quickly. Very good breaded pickle chips.
