Food was simply mediocre. It’s basic. Had a Caesar salad with steak. Was a huge portion of lettuce and minuscule portion of steak. Don’t expect anything very flavorful.

The restaurant was great as always. Lia was an excellent server and took very good care of us. My only negative is the parking. The is the second time I had issues with getting out of the parking lot. Lia validated my ticket but when I tried to leave the lot, it demanded $34. I called for assistance and tried to explain that I had just left the restaurant and had a validated ticket but I couldn't understand what the person was trying to tell me. I ended up paying the $34 for parking because I was holding up the line of cars leaving. My friends were in a vehicle behind me. They had the same issue and called for assistance as well. They were able to exit the parking garage with their validated ticket. This happened to me the last time I was at High Velocity, earlier in the Colts season. Not sure what I am doing wrong

Consistently a great choice when near the Marriott campus in Indianapolis. An observation: the menu changes frequently. Maybe the corporate office is constantly upgrading and keeping favorites and eliminating those items never selected. Bring back the crab cake salad that you had when you opened.

Very disappointed- only reason we returned was manager gave us a 20 percent off coupon because service was poor on previous visit. Nothing improved this trip- after 20 plus minutes we had to ask a hostess if she could find our waitress so we could order- Taylor finally returned to take our order- food was good.
Prices have really gone up at this restaurant and menu has deteriorated.
Tables next to us that had the same waitress experienced the same problems as we did getting their orders taken.
This restaurant used to be standing room only on a Colts or Indians game but now is maybe 50% full- hotel management needs to make some changes

We went for lunch before the Colts game. One would think that this restaurant would be prepared to serve the morning of a football game, but they were not prepared at all. The food was great! We got nachos, quesadillas, and chicken tenders to share amongst the table. We had to ask for small plates to serve onto and that took about 20 minutes. The service was awful and there was an excuse for everything. Even the table next to us was obviously receiving poor service. If you are going to pay that much for food and drinks at a bar-type restaurant, then you really expect better care and service. I would probably choose to go to another establishment on game day.

We eat here before every Home Colt game. Would like a breakfast burrito or pizza as an option. The chicken sandwich needs a bun not bread. Wait staff are wonderful and so is front end staff . Look forward to next season.

With plenty of servers, they need to add service to the high tables and booths in the bar area. We had young a group who didn't mind walking to the bar. An older group in a booth left because of no service.

Food was ok if not a bit bland, service was a bit slow even on a slow night. Prices high but as you’d expect for a hotel restaurant. Atmosphere cool, tv’s everywhere. Convenient if you’re a hotel guest.

First they acted like they didn't have the reservation. I had the chicken wrap and it was just ok. A friend had to ask three times for a to go box. Wait staff was not too friendly. It might have just been too busy at that time but I won't be making a special trip there.

I really want to like this place but it continues to speed downhill. Our server was very friendly and personalble. Drinks from bar took 10-15 minutes after placing order, a simple Bud Light. Chicken tenders were good but served just barely warm. Our order of fries was sent back after we determined that they were still raw, under-cooked. Overall, it continues to disappoint. This used to be our “go to “ place during the Indians season, 8-10 times a summer. We thinking we may start looking for a new place for ourpre-game meal.

Had a party of 7. One meal was completely forgotten, had to ask for it twice. It was “comp’d” but it ruined the meal experience. Sides are expensive, $5 for chips ? Asked for the fish tacos but without jalapeño, got fish in a tortilla with nothing else. Overall, not a good experience.

We were there during a large convention event and it was very crowded. Our order took quite some time to arrive. So when it came, my husband had an item on his salad that he had asked to be omitted. My husband decided to keep it rather than have it taken back and corrected when our server noticed it. Without any prompting, our spoke to the manager about it and came back with a voucher for our troubles! She was great.

Other than that, the food was pretty good!

Food was good and after we finally got served, service was very good. There was a convention in town and a lot of the attendees were in the bar at the same time that we were there. They were very loud and many standing around our table. I wish we would have asked to be seated in a different location.

Worse time we ever had here & I'll blame management for being extremely short-staffed. Server tried his best but appeared to being assigned too many tables to provide good service. Food when it finally arrived, sliders were warm with unmelted cheese, French fries were too cold to eat. We had a 5:45 reservation and just barely made the start of the Indians game at 7 pm. Overall, not a good experience.

High Velocity was chosen by my nephew for his celebratory meal after meeting the Archbishop in Indianapolis. Our server was great but the food was mediocre. I had the pot roast plate which had good flavor but was a little dry. My son had the fish and chips plate but the fish was undercooked. My nephew had the chicken blt wrap and he enjoyed that with no complaints. Their best friend had the sliders. He said they were great and had no complaints either. We did have the most decadent dessert that made the whole food experience worth it. A chocolate chip cookie dough waffle with ice cream, marshmallow fluff, chocolate syrup, strawberry syrup, and whip cream. It was so big we just ordered it with four spoons and was enough to fill us all up. The server had our meal comped for the underdone fish. Because we had our parking validated we didn’t have to pay $24 to park in the garage. I’d recommend this restaurant because our server was really great and the food wasn’t that bad.
