Diner Reviews
  • "This place is an example of classy rural Midwest! I can't wait to bring my guests from out of town. What a gem!!!!! The menu is gourmet and creative. The atmosphere is perfect."

  • "This is the second occasion we have visited TP and been disappointed. I think they are trying too hard to impress and forgetting the most important feature of the meal - enjoyable taste! We had the lamb and the filet. I am not a fan of lamb but the lamb belly looked fatty and difficult to cut. My filet was prepared to order and tender but lacked flavor. Very small amount of cold bernaise butter. It was paired with great potatoes and some greens that were so bitter they seemed burned and impossible to eat. I ordered the brownie for dessert and it was grainy and seemed to be raw. I felt like I was eating spoonfuls of raw sugar. It was inedible. I love the concept but the food was disappointing at best. For the money I expect more."

  • "Amazing resturant. All organic. Food is wonderful. Try their homemade ice cream and cheese platter. You can go for brunch, lunch or dinner. Stroll around the farm and even watch cows being milked daily at 4 p. we took our 2 year old to lunch. She loved their chocolate milk. Everything is so fresh."

  • "The food and service were very good. Nice ambience. Over priced considering the setting and overall dining experience."

  • "To start off, we we're there on a Thursday night when bottles of wine are half-price. We ordered the smoked salmon appetizer and it looked like a work of art when it arrived at the table. It was decorated with beautiful edible flower pedals from the restaurants own garden. My wife ordered the scallops and I had the lamb tenderloin, both of which were perfectly prepared and tasted amazing. The service was off the chart, the ambience on the outside upper deck overlooking the farm and garden was very relaxing. A perfect choice to celebrate our wedding anniversary."

  • "We loved your restaurant. Everything was so fresh and delicious and the setting is lovely. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "This was our second time to the Creamery, and it was even better the second time. We celebrated the end of a great day for our 25th wedding anniversary and it couldn't have been better. Thank you TPC. We will be back - this will be a regular for us."

  • "I live out of town and travel to Indianapolis once a year. I was really looking forward to brunch at Trader's Point. I ordered an omelette with tomatoes, spinach and cheese. It came with sun dried tomatoes (which was an option, but I chose fresh.) Before I realized the mix-up, our waiter was gone. I wanted to send the omelette back but too much time passed before someone came to our table. I didn't want my friend to eat alone so I just ate the omelette. It was very disappointing. Not only did it have sun dried tomatoes, it had a huge quantity of sun dried tomatoes which were dry. Along with the very dry omelette, it was not good. My friend liked her meal, but I did not."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "We had reservations, but the only tables available upon arrival were next to hostess stand and outside, two bad options. We chose outside; think flies and lots of mosquito bites. My pork chop, ordered medium, was served raw inside. The server, despite her superior attitude, didn't once check on our table after the food was served. The bus staff was not trained to address my situation (their words), so I went without a meal while my party finished theirs. The server offered to not charge for my meal. So gracious since I couldn't eat it. Nothing else was done to address my unpleasant experience. So disappointed, since I had anticipated dining here for some time."

  • " hostess friendly. table on covered deck. Wait staff Rachel was not too prompt Offered drinks etc. that order was timely. Rachel was matter of fact not overly friendly. Dinner order was placed and then the wait began. We did not receive order for 1 hour, even after asking Rachel which totally blew us off by stating it would be right out 10 mins later it arrived. Spoke with a manager did not get his name, his offer was I will look into that! Not likely to return. Dined 08/02/14 @ 6pm, departed after 8pm!"

  • "Had a business dinner on a Friday night. Shared the cheese board (very nice), and ordered the special albacore tuna, and Lamb dinners: awesome. The lamb had both chops and belly, and the eggplant grill on the side was also perfect. Waitress took excellent care of us. They have a decent offering of Indiana craft beer."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "We have dined at TP several times before, but this visit we introduced the restaurant to a family of 4 visiting from northern Indiana. As always, the food, service and overall experience was unique and very enjoyable. The new kitchen looks spectacular from the outside and the outside dining area is very inviting. This is a local gem that one must give a try. A little pricey but worth the investment."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Toughest pork chop I ever had at a restaurant. It was tasty but come on. Also if your thing is fresh and locally sourced don't have apple pie in the middle of the summer. How about Blueberry pie, or peach pie, or something that is actually in season."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "The food was quite good. My wife had the lamb and I had the special fish dish which was walleye. Both were excellent, but were very pricey. Portion sizes for the salads were quite small. Delicious, but really small. Service is attentive."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "We always go to The Loft when we are in Indy. Then menu changes with the availability of food from their garden so everything is always fresh. Their meats are always a treat as well. Soup of the day is always something to look forward to."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Incredible find--wish I lived in Indianapolis so I could eat here at least weekly. It's possible to find something pleasing on a small budget, and also possible to indulge in a multi-course meal with beverage pairings. There's even a little market where one can purchase their cheese and other local products. Would be an amazing place for a wedding or other large event, as the grounds offer indoor, outdoor, and screened in seating, plus gardens and open space for walks."

  • "We love this place for lunch - seems like you are far away from civilization. Food is great!"

  • "Dinner was very good. The food is consistent with interesting dishes and lots of flavors. I give the food high marks-- service could be better"

  • "We took a group of friends from out of town for lunch and they fell in love with the setting, food and overall experience. Our waitress was so knowledgeable and friendly!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Food and service excellent! Prices are pretentiously HIGH. As far as rating the value for the $$ on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest, I'd personally give it a 5. I am not trying to dissuade you from going, rather preparing you for sticker shock."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Our experience at the Loft had none of the problems described in some of the other reviews. The service was outstanding and enjoyable, the food (cheese board, 4 different entres, wine and dessert) was excellent. Thursday night was not at all crowded and to top it off, the wines were half-price that evening. Definitely a great experience and one that we will repeat."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "We had friends from Colorado visiting and they loved it! They enjoyed walking around and commented on how lush and green everything was. We picked this restaurant because the food was organic and we wanted them to have a fun experience while visiting Indiana. Thank you to the friendly staff who made us feel welcome."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I have been a resident of indianapolis and had heard of your establishment for some time. As my birthday and best friend have birthdays a day apart I decided to treat her to lunch. The food was vey good but very expensive for what it was. She had the salmon watercress salad and I had the ploughmans lunch, cheese board and soup. The servings of cheese were extremely small. The Loft seating was crowded and could have reflected the barn decor more effectively."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "We had a great experience! We made reservations as recommended. When we arrived a few minutes late they were very accommodating and showed us right to a table. The beignets were very fluffy. I had the breakfast burger and would get it again in a heartbeat. The bacon is to die for. We splurged and got a scoop of chocolate ice cream for dessert and were not disappointed. The waitress was very attentive."

  • "Set in beautiful Indiana farmland, this organic farm features a restaurant with a rotating menu of local delicious food. I have been to brunch here many times, and I am always impressed by the quality of food and the quality of service. A definite recommendation."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "The Loft is a very special restaurant, one of a kind in Indy. The quality, preparation and taste of their organically grown and locally sourced food is unmatched in Indianapolis. Our server was very delightful and enthusiastic about the menu. It was difficult to make a decision on what to order as everything on the menu sounded scrumptious. I chose the Wild Alaskan King Salmon which I was already familiar with and knew how rare it is. I was not disappointed. It was cooked to perfection and delicious. Anyone who thinks they don't like fish and it is offered on their menu who doesn't try it is missing something very special! All of our party members were very pleased with their meals. You can't go wrong on any menu item!"

  • "We visited Traders Point Creamery on the recommendation of another. Beautiful and lush gardens with a picture perfect background of grazing cows. We watched the cows herded in for their evening milking and then had dinner in the Loft. July 12th anniversary celebrations for us and our daughter & husband. It had just rained and the sun was poking out to make for a beautiful evening. We had a wonderful meal with good spirits. For my Daughter an organic cream soda ...she is pregnant with our first grand baby. The rest had a variety of craft beers and wines. All excellent! Three of us had the filet mignon and it was AMAZING! Our server was full of smiles from start to finish and so very pleasant."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We celebrated our 32nd anniversary at The Loft. We had the filet, the strip loin, indiana onion tart, cherry pie and chocolate ice cream. Best meal, service, ambience that we have enjoyed ever! Definitely a must have more often!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We were there with another couple on a Tues. evening for dinner & it was great--weather-wise, etc., however, in regard to dinner: We felt that the entree's were very expensive, especially since there were no "sides" such as a salad &/or bread or rolls for the table. The wine prices were average for dinner ($8 per glass) since most places charge between $6 to $8, but they never give you a lot for that amount of money. We truly enjoyed the atmosphere, the setting & eating on the enclosed porch to enjoy the beautiful surroundings, etc. You have made a lot of improvements & it is just lovely. We know the food is "fresh" & you have "happy cows & pigs", which may be why the entrees are expensive. Thank you!"

  • "This was a third visit to The Loft for dinner. Once again, they did not disappoint. We had the cheese board for our appetizer, and every bit of it was wonderful. The beer cheese and herb fromage were our favorites. My friend had the fish special and I had the filet, it was so delicious we hardly talked during our meal. Then dessert...by far our favorite. I had the cherry pie, to die for, and my friend had the lemon meringue in a jar. We cannot say enough about how wonderful our meal and experience was and will to come back. We would have liked to have purchased a whole pie, but were told that we couldn't (you really should start doing that). Absolutely wonderful from beginning to end. Can't say enough about the desserts, fantastic"

  • "Wonderful setting to take my 88 year-old veterinarian father for dinner. However, the food was unexceptional given the price. My father, a lover of a good pork chop, was disappointed with his and the three other dinners were ok. We love the farm for the ambience, ice cream and great view and will stick to those."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "This is a very pastoral, organic restaurant where you can actually have a conversation at dinner. The food has an interesting and diverse twist on american-european cusine. the lamb was acceptable, but the whitefish and the chicken were excellent. By all means try the onion pie as a first. Service was good. Try to get a table on the balcony with a great view over the fields and woods of Traders Pointe Creamery."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Four of us shared an Onion Pie appetizer. It was surprisingly good and we should have ordered two. We all ordered different dinners and each was simply great; Scallops, Mac & Cheese, Farm Cheeseburger, and one of two steak choices. A little wine, ice tea and two Traders Point Creamery ice cream deserts. All of it well presented with service that was friendly, knowledgable and attentive without getting in the way. Other places may also advertise menus that are 'organic, farm fresh, locally sourced, farm-to-table, etc.' But there is something special going on here. Highly recommended."
