Contemporary American

The Hulman is a located in the heart of downtown Indianapolis with a uniquely Indy-inspired menu crafted by Executive Chef Patrick Russ. We strive to curate contemporary American cuisine with locally sourced ingredients from partners in the area. We are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with a special seasonal menu out on The Paddock, our outdoor gathering space with a full bar and fireplace. We also have a private dining room, The 1945, for more intimate gatherings and events.

The Hulman is named in tribute to Anton "Tony" Hulman Jr. who purchased the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1945 after World War II. Hulman was the first to say, "ladies and gentlemen, start your engines" and we pay tribute to the Speedway with our intentional design.

The only issue was the manager said we could t order from Paddocks menu inside after being told we could & we placed our orders. I feel as though his customer service and communication wasn’t where it should’ve been being a professional but our waiter made up for it all. I’d totally return !

The service was interesting because our waiter was friendly, but he tried to refill our water and literally poured the water on the table and missed our glasses completely, getting water on us. We probably will not return.

The sausage was dried out, there weren't any oysters as advertised, and the bagels, cocktail sauce, etc., tasted like you would expect at a motel breakfast in the lobby. I didn't see anything that appeared to be made onsite (I did not eat any of the desserts), which is disappointing given the price and my high expectations of the restaurant. I will not eat here again as there are far better places to eat for the price and quality. On a positive note, the live music was excellent.

Food was excellent and pricing was reasonably expensive, with 1 drink each we spent over $300 for brunch. Great trio played, music was welcome. Service was average - once we got served it was good but we sat in a small area which had many other tables for 20 minutes before a server made it to us. Our server probably walked by 5-6 times but never said a word until finally his co-worker stopped in to help out. Otherwise, a fun experience.

The nicer items were empty every time I went up to get something so I ended up ordering off the menu. The Bloody Mary bar was disappointing (weird glass size). And there weren’t any condiments in the table like salt and pepper, ketchup, hot sauce, etc. also, when making the reservation I was asked to prepay. But then we got a bill. That was confusing. When we arrived, they couldn’t find my reservation. Then when I pulled it up, they said they found it and our table had been given to another party. She sat us elsewhere pretty quick, but why did she even need to say it out loud and get us worked up? Ugh, there was nothing relaxing or pleasant about the meal other than the vibe of the space itself.

The chair my 70yr old mother sat in was so low to the ground that the table was almost at face level. When we asked a manager if we could move he said no even though there were 3 empty tables next to us with better chairs and only 2 of those tables were sat in the 90 minutes that we were there. The table was so small that it hardly had enough room for plates and drinks for 2 people let alone 3 people that were in out party. There was no salt and pepper on our table and it took a while for our server to bring us any. When we finally had some on our table another server came by and asked if he could borrow them for his table. When he came back with them he stuck his arm in my plate of food.

A staffer noticed our party trying a locked door (at 9:55), opened the door and asked, "Can I help you?" When we stated that we were there for Mother's Day Brunch, she let us in and seated us, telling a fellow staffer, "I guess I forgot to unlock the door". We sat for 15 minutes before anyone came to our table, during which time, we watched them setting up buffet tables and chaffing dishes. When someone finally came for our drink order, and we opted for the Bloody Mary bar an extra $11 each on top of the already stiff $46pp). Another 10 minutes past before she returned with two short cocktail glasses, with a shot of vodka over ice. Aren't Bloody Marys usually served in tall glasses? When they finally got the buffet tables set up, the food in the chaffing dishes was cold. The variety - scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and potatoes, - was no more than you'd find on any Tuesday hotel breakfast bar that comes with the room. There was a "carving station", but it featured turkey and pork roast, without the brunch standard roast beef or prime rib. Items usually included on special brunches, especially Mothers' Day, like waffles, or an omelet station, were $13-$20 extra, on top of the already high $46. The jazz trio came late, and set up in the middle of the room while people were in the middle of brunch. VERY disappointed in the food, the service and the overall execution.

The grilled oysters are amazing; there were a few people in our party who do care for oysters who loved them too. The tuna tartare was very bright and fresh on the palate and the quality of the tuna was apparent. The Brussels were very good, I would have liked to see a little more pop (acid or sweet or savory) but they were still good. Presentation of the Alaskan king crab bisque was neat, broth was tasty. Didn’t expect there to only be one minuscule portion of crab in the dish for a large bowl of soup, that would be my chief complaint with the entire meal. Service was attentive and the quiet noise made for a great meal with friends and a great conversation. Would definitely eat here again next time we are in Indianapolis!

Salads being brought out with the main coarse was problematic at the smaller tables. Space was at a premium. Food quality was excellent and presentation was fine. The wait staff was nothing to brag about, seemed a bit overwhelmed and distant.

We decided to eat at The Hulman since it was in the hotel and we had eaten there once before. They hadn’t been open long when we first ate there and we were hoping for a better experience and maybe gave them time to work the kinks out. We were seated in the bar at a table and waited well Over 5 min for a server to come ask for drinks. We got our drinks about 5 min after that and put in 2 appetizers. One being the Pickled veggies which we loved from our last visit. The other being warm olives which are really good The warm olives came out and the server said they had no pickled veggies. No biggie. We ordered dinner and about 20 minutes later (still no food) the couple next to us got …. You guessed it,,pickled veggies. The server actually said “you got that last bowl of these!” Ok. Wait? What? So we ordered some meatballs and bread and butter. Still no food. Reordered drinks. I got mine. Hubby’s never came. We asked 5 min later and she said she was new there and thought someone else brought it. Nope. Never got it. Got it 5 min later. Food finally comes. It was good. Hubby had short rib pasta and I had some Pea/pasta dish and it was very flavorful but VERY small I had 8 shells and they weren’t big. But it was very tasty. Hubby’s portion was huge! Noise level is a little loud and you have to raise your voice to talk. Cool atmosphere. Well lit. Rooftop bar is very cool! A definite party place with live DJ, a bar, lots of outside seating but it was very wet due to rain so we took in the city views. Hotel is very cool. Modern. I think they are still working out the kinks at restaurant. Not sure. The Old fashioned drinks are VERY SWEET. so if you like them less sweet definitely tell them upon ordering. You could smell the sugar. We will go back again at some point because they have a good idea and the menu is creative.

Flat iron steak and pay a premium price for a tough cut of meat. Replace streak in menu with a filet, or ribeye. Two much attention to sauces and not enough attention to food quality. Ordered an old fashioned. Way to much going on… did not recognize as an old fashioned. They call it an old fashioned for a reason. Don’t mess with a classic drink. Waitress was not personable not attentive. Two seat table in the bar are a poor choice. These should be removed. Whole menu needs to be revamped. Nothing to make people come back. At 7:30 ish out of key dessert offerings.

Would definitely go back.

We were not offered any beverages, so we inquired about drink specials. Our server said that he couldn't remember what they were, but would go ask if we wanted him to. He thought there was some sort of a Blood Orange drink and a $3 mimosa. We opted for the mimosas. We were poured a half glass of water while we waited for our mimosas. We did not find the buffet appealing, so we ordered from the menu. Our server asked us to point to the items on the menu, so that he could copy them down onto his order pad. While we waited for our food, we overheard a different server at a nearby table run through the list of beverage options. Soda, coffee/tea, full bar, pleasant small talk, etc.. Who knew?? The wait for our food was a little long, considering the dining room was not full, but we enjoyed the live music and our mimosas. The server (not our guy) who delivered our plates noticed that we were in need of drink refills and put in a request at the bar. Our server came by to tell us the mimosas would be ready soon, but never refilled the water. The food was good, but not great. Server did not check back on us during the meal. We waited a LONG time for our server to reappear, at which point we requested our check. Even running the credit card was a lengthy process. Our overall impression was the our server possible spends more toking than actually waiting on tables. We are not haters, but come on, we dropped $70+ on breakfast and had to ask for every single thing (water, drinks, salt/pepper, the check). Not impressive. The space is attractive and needed in our community. Please improve!

My breakfast was cooked in too much oil. Service was not very polished, but really no complaints there. The staff did their best to accommodate! Maybe dinner/lunch is better than their breakfast. I'll try it one more time. Decor and ambiance are immaculate, however - and so excited to have somewhere so beautiful in Indianapolis!

But slow service and questionable behavior, such as wet mopping the floor in the dining room and bar during the heart of the dinner hours, knock it out of contention as the great place it could be. On top of that, it took what seemed like forever to get a refill of a simple glass of wine. Food served lukewarm. The staff is apologetic, but that gets old, too. This place needs better management! Please get it together. This city needs a hip and fun place like this promises to be, but fails.
