Steakhouse
Third and Main is a top-of-the-line steak house and tavern in historic Aurora, IN. From in house dry aging our steaks to carrying the largest selection of wagyu beef in the Midwest, we have it all. If steak isn't your favorite we also have a fresh seafood selection weekly with a full sushi and raw bar.

Located in one of the oldest operating taverns in Indiana, Third and Main carries on the historic traditions with an upscale menu in a casual atmosphere. Just a short drive from Cincinnati along the Ohio River, this family-owned and operated restaurant is a great place to get away from the bustle of city living.

Our 120 year old bar is fully-stocked with over 275 different bourbons, domestic, import and craft beers and a variety of select wines we feature proudly. Stop in and have a seat at our 120 year old bar to see why Third and Main is a local Tri-State favorite.

    Went for wife’s birthday. We let them know with the reservation that our toddler would be joining also, they had a high chair set up and ready at the table. Best steak in the region. The Australian wagyu strip and filet were both fantastic.

    Our filet was over cooked, green bean seasoning was overly sweet. Wasn’t really impressed with any of our food it was just kind of meh. We got sat at a table right outside the bathroom a little too close in my opinion to have tables to the bathroom. The women’s bathroom was less than 5ft from our table. Our server was excellent. Overall I would not recommend just based on food quality and price for said quality.

    Third and Main is the ultimate hidden date night. We have been three times now over the last couple of years and even though it is pricy, you get what you pay for. The steak is superb and the drinks are knockouts. I highly recommend this for anniversaries, birthdays, and large groups. The parking is the only drawback and that can't be helped in the small town of Aurora. However, great food and a great atmosphere make up for any small parking issue. HIGHLY RECOMMMEND for a special night.

    Food was great. Best steaks we have had there. However it was a special occasion, my wife's birthday and there was no acknowledgement of that. Usually at fine dining that is valued. Service was friendly but just okay.

    Third and Main always hiits! Matt and rest of his staff are top notch. Matt always makes a point to stop by our table to say hello. The food and cocktails are always on point. One my husband and I’s favorite spots.

    We went on Valentine’s Day, and weren’t too happy about that. They had a fixed menu, and would not allow any substitutions of the sides. And when we were there, they were not too busy. So we had to pay for a side we did not eat, and pay for a side we would eat. So that saga ends with a waste of food and a waste of money. Service and food was good.

    Darn good steaks and food all around. Service was excellent. Couldn't decide which dessert to get; so we got all five. All freakin' delicious, but their crème brulee remains their best dessert and the best crème brulee I've ever had. Their chocolate cake is a close second.

    We have been here once before and it was amazing. This time was horrible! Starting with the bread service that took 25 minutes to receive, with the server telling us “it’s because we toast the bread” it came out cold!! Then our steaks came out 2 minutes later, ordered medium, and they were both well well done! I ordered the lobster add on, it was crunchy and way over cooked. Our blood orange margaritas were amazing and delicious. The only highlight of the night. So disappointed, will not give another chance, as it’s way too expensive to gamble on again.

    The American Wagyu was excellent as was the Prime Fillet. My wife an I ordered both to compare the difference and the Wagyu definitely was the winner between the two. We were not sure about the dress code and found ourselves a bit over dressed compared to the rest of the guests. It's definitely a bit more casual than we expected. Overall, I would recommend this place. We will definitely be back to try different items on the menu.

    A gem of a steakhouse hidden away in Aurora, IN, not far from Perfect North ski area and Hollywood casino, with excellent options for high quality and even internationally sourced steaks and fresh seafood. Cool bar and good drinks, too! Appreciate the live guitarist on the weekends to round out the ambiance in the bar. We’ll be back.

    Third and Main is EXCELLENT!! Their Steaks are Perfect in every way! The 45 Day Dry Aged Ribeye, Carrera Farms Filet Mignon, and the Pasta from Heaven are a few of our favorites! Also, their fresh seafood (oysters, shrimp, sushi) is always great. All the staff is wonderful- always friendly, knowledgeable & helpful!! When You go ask for Rudy he always takes great care of us! The Chef is amazing - food is always delicious!
