A word from Club Soda
To join in the fun you must be 21! Club Soda is the kind of joint Frank, Dean and Sammy would truly love. Lucky for you, they're dead and you can have their table. Sizzling steaks and commodious cocktails are the watchwords at Club Soda, voted Fort Wayne's best martini bar, steakhouse and jazz club. A casual atmosphere in our first-floor bar gives way to white tablecloths and all the accoutrement of fine dining on the second. And our selection of prime steaks, sumptuous seafood and exquisite wines puts our money where your mouth is. After dinner, it's back to the bar to take in the best live jazz that northeastern Indiana has to offer. At Club Soda, it's all about red meat, cold gin and cool jazz. Which is why we like to say, "There's nothing good for you here. And that's just how it oughtta be." Club Soda. Steaks. Cocktails. Ring-a-ding-ding.

    We are new to town and have been trying out all the local "foodie" restaurants...this one is high on the list. Favorites were the gouda dip and the extensive wine list. Excellent service. Loved the live music. Highly recommend. We were able to get right in on a Saturday night with opentable. Will definitely return. Great date night spot.

    I arrived 15 minutes before my reservation. My co-worker opted not to come, so I was out for dinner alone on my visit to FT Wayne. The Head Hostess (taller,blonde) immediately suggested I sit at the bar. I don't like eating at the bar - and, I reserved a table. So I got a table. I high-top by the door between the dining room and the bar. I asked for a low top along the wall and was told that those were for people who had reservations... I said that I was one of the people with reservations - which was met with absoulte silence by the junior hostess who walked me to the table (it was clear she was afraid to the head hostess). My actual waitress was lovely. The food was good. The table I asked for was empty the whole time I was there.

    This is a great place to go for a special occasion. The chef allowed us to order off menu, and the food tasted great (dessert was the best part of the meal). Our server was great; drinks were quickly ordered and delivered; he responded well to our requests and was professional and pleasant throughout our dinner. I will definitely return.

    We really enjoy the club and will recommend it to everyone. Arrived at 10:30 and sat in the bar. The joint was jumping and the energy was high. Had a great RobRoy, OK a few, and some wonderful smoked Guoda dip. Wait staff was friendly and responsive. Band was good but balance and EQ might have been off. Was a bit disappointed that they place emptied out after trio was finished. Would be cool to have piano music for a hour or so after the live music, time to wrap up drinks and conversations. We will return anytime we get the chance, love the place.

It was a pleasure all around for evening dinner I had with a co-worker. We had the duck and it was tasty but plenty of other stuff to choose from. Its a must stop! ConsumerMarineSupply.com

    Having never visited Ft Wayne before, this was a last minute reservation based on social media recommendations, and what a find it was. Downtown Ft Wayne is a very quiet place on the weekends when all the business are closed, but that just makes dining out all the easier. Club Soda is in a nicely renovated building that blends old and new sympathetically, in a neighborhood you might not otherwise have much reason to visit. The greeting was bright and professional and service throughout the evening was impeccable. Duck Spring rolls were delicious and very well executed. Duck Confit was as good as any I've had. Risotto was slightly on the salty side, but rich and rewarding.

    Meal and service was excellent but was not placed in the "quiet" room or area I requested, and was told I would get, when I made the reservation. Was very disappointed as we were placed by a large group that was so loud I couldn't hear myself think. Disappointed by not seating us where I had been previously told we would be seated.

    Club Soda is hands-down the best restaurant in Ft. Wayne. The quality of the steaks and their preparation rivals any steakhouse in Chicago. The servers are friendly and attentive and the atmosphere from the bar, to the loft area to the outdoor dining is all fantastic.

    My wife and I were looking for something different to do for her birthday, and, as Ft. Wayne is only an hour or so away, I contacted a friend from the area who recommended Club Soda. From the time we walked in, we loved it. We are both in the food and beverage/service industry, so while we aren't snobs at all, we know what to look for in a nice dining experience without unreasonable expectations. Club Soda could not have been a better choice for the two of us. Both of our meals were outstanding-it may be the single best steak I have ever eaten anywhere-the ambience was terrific, and our server, Larry, was phenomenal. Kudos to the staff and management of Club Soda, we will definitely be back...with friends!

    We made reservations one week in advance for our special anniversary dinner. We had a lovely table adorned with red roses that my husband arranged for delivery. However, our table was next to a very lound table of 10 or 12. It ruined the ambience for a romantic dinner. On a Monday night, the restaurant was not busy. Therefore, I'm not understanding why a more quiet table was not provided us. Otherwise, we enjoyed the delicious food and the service and attention of the waiter was excellent.

    The evening was one to remember! Looking at the menu it was clear that this was not a "cookie cutter" dining establishment, Duck egg rolls? I can only say WOW, what flavor these had and the rack of lamb was a great throw back to my younger days at my grandparents. The waitress was outstanding with timely service and an actual joy to converse with. The ambiance was perfect for the two of us as we were celebrating my wife's birthday, quiet little table that we were actually able to talk and not have to yell... two thumbs up for that one!

    I took my brother and his fiance out to discuss their upcoming wedding. The restaurant also caters, and they happened to be having a small wedding reception on the premise. The duck egg rolls were very good and the sweet chili sauce was good, but on the hot side of spicy. The Egg Salad BLT sandwich was delicious!! For dessert, the chocolate cake was perfect! Overall the entire experience was wonderful! There is a patio with a fountain that you can see from the inside seating area. Open feel! The owner, Noelle, came out to personally discuss catering options. I will absolutely be returning!

    I took my wife to Club Soda for her birthday. We got the Gouda dip, two cocktails (Purple Haze, The French Martini), the Caesar salad, another salad, and all deserts. We went on a Tuesday night and there were not too many people. It was quiet and romantic. We wanted to take a while with our dining experience and our waiter understood that and gave us time. We have lived in Fort Wayne our whole lives and have never been to Club Soda. Now we have a reason to go back again!

    We choose Club Soda to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. The only down side to our experience was the size of the table - a small bar table for four adults made little space for our food and drinks difficult, but our server managed this quite well.
