The 4 Seasons 1935 N. Shadeland Ave.

These must be the Four Seasons greeting you as you enter.

This is a small diner that offers decent food in large portions at a most reasonable price. Nothing fancy or elaborate.

I resisted all the breakfast specials, and the chipped beef and gravy and decided on more typical luncheon fare. Liver and onions for $7.49. It is served with a choice of soup or coleslaw. This joint always has 2 soups; everyday. Today’s offerings were Lentil and Cream of Potato. I chose Potato soup

It was a big bowl but it was pretty bland. Salt, pepper and crackers helped but it could have used some work in the back of the house. The liver;however; was more than decent.

It was a big piece and although too thin to cook mid-rare it did come out a solid medium. With the exception of a couple of “veiny” parts I could cut it with my fork. The onion had a nice color and carmelization which is always welcome. The mashed potatoes and gravy were okay, nothing to rave about.

I agree with Pat’s assessment. Not necessarily a destination but a viable option for dining. I would like to try the chipped beef and gravy; not too many joints offer that around here. As big as the menu is I am sure you can find something to interest you.

  1. That Four Seasons looks like it’s seen many decades of travelers.

    • Yep. I am not sure how old it is but I did over hear someone comment that they have been coming here for over 20 years. Their client base is on the “mature” side.
