About 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.

Ambiance and service were good, food was mediocre. The moonfish I ordered was bland and completely dry. The scallops on it were fine and they were nice enough to comp me half the price of the entree. Overall a nice place for drinks and appetizers, but there are much better options for dining in Fort Wayne these days.

Club Soda was off our rotation for awhile because of food & noise. But we have been there several times this year & have been pleased. Music is nice but not when you can't hear the person sitting across from you.

First experience here. Well-trained and personable staff, meticulously prepared food.
BTW--if the menu description says it's hot, it IS (I'm tired of places that promise spicy and don't deliver--this place gives HEAT when it's promised!). Only disappointment is that I can't get there every week.

We've been to Club Soda at least three times on our visits to Fort Wayne. The first two visits were good - attentive service, great food, and the ambiance was good (still a bit loud), but our last visit wasn't so great. Without being asked our preference we were seated outside in what was apparently a smoking section. We would have said something earlier, but it wasn't until after our dinner was being served that other patrons around us began smoking. Plus - and I realize it wasn't the fault of Club Soda - there was some kind of techno music festival going on nearby which made conversation all but impossible. We were very disappointed that a special evening was ruined.

We have never been disappointed with the food at Club Soda! It is well worth paying that little bit extra to get an outstanding meal every time. The chef's specials were especially good on Saturday night. I have no hesitation in recommending the club as a first rate dining experience.

My wife and I have gone to Club Soda for every "special occasion" dinner we've had as far back as I can remember. The food is always great, the staff is always incredibly responsive and approachable, and the music is always fantastic. We will continue to go to Soda in the future; they are simply our favorite place in the Fort.

We enjoyed dinner at Club Soda on 9/19 for our wedding anniversary. We had martinis that were delicious: The Bloody Basil and Blood & Bourbon
We also enjoyed the filet mignon, that was cooked to perfection and tender as could be!
Our server/waitress (Athena) was amazing too! One of the best.
Great place for special occasions! :)

We went for dinner before a show at the Embassy. We had reservations and were seated promptly. We were seated at a 2 top and noticed that many other couples were seated at larger 4 top.
They have a very large selection of beer, wine, and cocktails. We shared bacon wrapped scallops as an apitizer. We woukd have preferred the sweet sauce on the side and would have not used it.
We both had the spinach salad and it was great. I had the panko crusted salmon with lyonnaise potatoes. The salmon was a little dry, but the potatoes were fantastic. My wife had the duck with risotto. The duck was also a little dry and the risitto was perfect.
Service was excellent. Overall it was pretty good, but somewhat lacking for the price. Maybe it was an off night, as we have been more satisfied on previous visits.

Most choose Club Soda for steak but my guest and I opted for fish. My crab cake appetizer and salmon entre were lukewarm. The couscous was somewhat watery and bland. Next time, I will opt for beef. The service and ambience were both very good.

We purposely chose this spot while in the area for the Auburn Car Auction after reading reviews and wanting to experience a special evening while in Ft Wayne from Indianapolis. It did not disappoint! We were so impressed with the decor, ambiance, service and quality of the food. We LOVED the salmon cakes, martini, wine and entrees of scallops and marlin. It was delicious! This place is one of the most beautiful restaurants we've been to and we are all over the Indianapolis food scene on a regular basis. This place is going on our FAVORITE list and would go back for an overnight stay just to eat here again! We didn't make it for the live jazz but next time requesting a seat near the live action would be worthwhile.

Gotta get a loada Club Soda! Oh, what a fun night... The live music was a nice surprise, as well as the multiple dining locations. The restaurant is a throw back to the 40's, and its decor reflects as such. It was hard to choose where to sit, however it was a bit warm for the outdoor options they offered, so we perched ourselves in the bar area. The area was nicely decorated to reflect the era to which they are paying homage.... cool. Love the brick exposed all around too. Our server was warm and efficient. She reviewed the menu with us and we landed on steak. My NY strip was delicious - It had a charred flavor and was done to my liking, and was ample for the price. The accompanying salad, I chose the spinach, was outstanding.... The collage of ingredients and sweet dressing made for an interesting choice! The veggie I picked was the brussel sprouts, YUM! They were shaved and done al dente. Perfect! We also took advantage of their wine special, a bottle for $20. A deal, and we were grateful to the server for pointing it out to us. Overall, a great dining experience. We'll be back!

Club Soda isn't what it used to be. Appetizers were good. Smoked Gouda and Calamari. Drinks were good. My husband had the lamb and he couldn't even cut through it. As he said it, "it was the worse lamb he has ever had." I had a filet. It was ok. Have had far better filet in town. I would only recommend the wine, cocktails and appetizers. Nice waitress also!

This was my 2nd visit having driven 2+ hrs ... my 1st visit was excellent with Delanie our delightful ... 2nd visit for dinner ended abruptly ( right after the appetizers) due to our server who we felt was unfriendly and lacked any enthusiasm. When we asked for appetizer to be boxed ... the containers and bag were left for us to 'do it ourselves' .... we're never returning after initially loving this place.

I was in town on business event and hotel recommended to me . Nice building with lots character. At time was not crowded and they sat us upstairs. Service was ok but food was very good. Both had steaks- NY strip and tenderloin. EXcellent grilled favor and mash potatoes we delish. Even the bread was a hit. I travel and eat out lots for business and this is a winner! Enjoy.

I have liked cub soda in the past. This time they really failed on overall atmosphere. The reservation was for 8 the table was set for 6. They just squeezed 4 two top tables together in the bar to put our party at. It was loud and annoying. We were pressed up against a piano a pole and a stairwell. We had to actually move the tables so one of the people in our party could sit in her seat sense they set our table next to a pole. After being lead through an empty room I was really unsure why they choose to sit us in a loud bar in a table set up so we there was no way for us to talk to each other.
The server was amazing. That was the one bright note for the evening.
I know our table spent at least $1000 at club soda that night and we were not given that sort of experience. I will go to Tolon next time and have a better experience for less money.

This was my first time at Club Soda, although my husband has been several times. We started off with the Georgia Peach cocktail. This was definitely the best bourbon cocktail I have ever had. I could have indulged in several, but reluctantly limited myself to one. My husband couldn't resist a second. The spinach salad was tasty, and the filet was second to none. Even the baked potato was wonderful. Outstanding service and a quiet atmosphere add up to a great overall experience. Easily as good as pricier places in town and a little bit cheaper as side and salad still come with the entrée. We will be back.
