George’s Neighborhood Grill 6935 Lake Plaza Drive.

Without a doubt this is the best looking place we have been to in a long while. Dark wood tables and a massive oblong bar made it a very inviting space. It was also the largest. A barroom dining area as well as 2 other dining rooms. It was pretty obvious that this joint considers Hospitality a serious business.

The menu was pretty serious as well.

Since Pat had a grilled tenderloin last week he got a breaded one this week for $9.49. A Hoosier can’t get too much pig.

Creamy Portobello Mushroom Soup

Since it was a cold and rainy day I was pretty sure I needed some beef, and they have several options. I decided on the 8 ounce open face steak sandwich for $11.49.

It was a very healthy cut and expertly grilled to Medium Rare. I just love a good piece of char-grilled beef; especially on a cold day in February. It is definitely something I would re-order. I also got a cup of soup, for a $1.50 up charge. It was very warming and a good start for a steak lunch.

I am with Pat about this joint. I would love to have it in my neighborhood. However it isn’t so far away  a return trip is out of the question. A lovely environment with great food and service what more could you want?

  1. What a banner day for Pat with onionless soup! And after the plum-sized burger patty I was served with mostly bread bites on the perimeter, those meats look enormous. Nice treat on a winter’s day, as you say, and the outside does look inviting. Now what on earth is a Reagan’s Schnoz beer? Even Google couldn’t help me there, and the link in the post wouldn’t take me to the menu.

    • Well the beer is a creation from a local craft brewery. It is one of those whiskey barrel beers. Brewed and store in an old whiskey barrel. They are either real good or real bad. I opted for a more sane Black and Tan. As for the link I will take a look at it. I may be able to fix it. Try back later or maybe you can Google it directly. Sorry to hear about your itty bitty burger. If I want a tiny burger I’ll get White Castle.

    • I removed the link to the menu and replace it with a link to the home page. From there you should be able to see their menu. Hopefully.

    I really enjoy your guys’ column. This and Indianapolis Restaurant Scene are the only two regular Indy ones I can find. Keep it up. Jay.

  3. I saw this place just recently — it’s in my old hood, and I wondered if it was anything like the old George’s fine dining establishment — Now I know. Thanks for the review. That tenderloin looks fantastic!
