We have had the opportunity to experience many great steakhouses in the state. This was one that I, personally, had never had the chance to try. I was very much looking forward to the experience. While the atmosphere and service were perfect, the food left much to be desired. The steak that I had was superb and one of the best cuts I have ever had. Unfortunately, the rest of the meal was not. My potato was burned on the bottom. My wife's steak (the special for the evening) was well undercooked and honestly appeared to be a inferior cut of meat. Her twice baked potato could have come from a grocery freezer. I never mind paying for a top of the line dining experience. Unfortunately this is not an experience that I would consider top of the line. Based on value and food, I would not recommend.

The food was excellent.I reserved a table on open table was then contacted the next day stating we would have to have a bar table if that is the time we wanted. We would not have agreed had we known how small the table was and how crowded we 4 at the table were. The bar is not near as nice as main dining— even though our food was good made for a bad experience not sure we will return

J. Fords Black Angus is simply the best restaurant in Terre Haute. I called before with two special requests and they were very good with honoring them. They also made sure to have just the right drink I wanted in that complimented my steak! I would highly recommend anyone to J Ford's who wants to have the most romantic, fun night of their life!

Amazing food and service. The far room is noisy due to acoustics. They are working on it. We asked to be moved and had a great experience after the move. Very accommodating. Vast wine list and when the one we wanted was out, we were offered a better wine at the same price and were not disappointed. Will return!!!

This restaurant is certainly the best in the Wabash Valley. The menu has the usuals - filet mignon, chicken, pasta but there are some unique offerings as well. For example, my entree was a pork chop with a salsa verde sauce, a chili sauce and served with two creamy fried grits patties....delicious! The menu is always supplemented by at least 2 or 3 chef's specials. These are not to be missed. In addition, there is usually a special appetizer and a desert.
For the area, the prices are high but the food and service are quite fine.
Waitstaff is friendly and competent.
If there was any disappointment it was with the wedge salad which I've had there before. This time the blue cheese dressing seemed to be watered down.
But, everything else....delicious.

We had a wonderful dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary and J. Ford's was the perfect setting to do so. We experienced exceptional service and delicious food. The Baked Goat Cheese and Marinara with Honeycomb, Heirloom Tomato Salad with fresh Mozz Cheese, Vegan Lasagna, NY Strip and Sweet Potato Casserole were all outstanding.

The waiter was excellent but goes down hill from there. Picked this restaurant after looking at the on line menu which I guess they don’t update very often as none of the chef specials were specials anymore so when you’ve got your mind made up before getting there it’s a big let down. I did get a chefs special which was stuffed pork tenderloin and it was overdone while wife just got a heirloom tomato salad which the tomatoes were bad....underripe and overripe.
The best part was dessert which was a white & Carmel cake with buttercream frosting that was FANTASTIC and would be only thing worth coming back for.

Please restaurant’s if your going to have a web site with the menu PLEASE keep the menu updated to not disappoint your customers thinking that its current!
