The Loft at Traders Point Ratings and Reviews
First time for visiting this restaurant ...
First time for visiting this restaurant for lunch. The three of us went on a weekday, during one of the few mild and not rainy days we'd been having. Of course the setting is unique in the barn-like structure, and just about everyone there preferred to be seated out on the large, covered and screened porch that overlooks the grounds. Our server was fantastic, we felt pampered even though she had several tables. My chicken-avocado wrap was delicious, but my two companions thought their burgers were very dry - probably because the meat is so lean. The only negatives were the big, noisy trucks that kept coming in and out of the property directly below where we were seated, and the fairly high price for the overall food quality.
Bummer didn't have the cheese on cheese ...
Bummer didn't have the cheese on cheese tray available for sale. Also a bit disappointed that ran out of squash blossoms for squash blossom salad. Very kind of server to not charge us, but we would have preferred squash blossoms. I wish I lived closer and could visit on a live music nite. Super beautiful location. Definitely a must to visit when in town.

Reservation for 7:45 got us seated about 8:10. That was my biggest complaint. Prices are pretty steep probably because of everything being organic and much of it is farm to table. My friend ordered her meat with 'no red please' but if was quite pink in the middle. I know chefs prefer this but it is the customer who is eating it. My fish was done well although the portion was modest. Atmosphere is nice although a little overly warm. For me this was a been there done that experience and I didn't buy the t-shirt.

Our server was very attentive. Having not been to the restaurant previously, he went in depth about the restaurant's beliefs about farm to table and its sourcing. The food was really terrific, but we spent $40/person on brunch, with only one drink each. So, the organic farm to table concept is costly ... not a value for me to repeat but I'm glad I experienced the restaurant. The zucchini French toast with vanilla ice cream was something to remember. My friends said that was not true about the bloody Mary's.

Cheese platter was excellent - must have item. Waitress was attentive and able to give us a complete sourcing of all the food stuffs (seemed close to the Portlandia spoof on sourcing!) that ended up swaying my selection of entree. It was a dairy so had to have ice cream sundae for desert (enough for two but I struggled through it). Farm to table? Our table was closer to live cows than it was to our car which wasn't very far away!

We always bring out of town guests here...why? Outstanding service--fabulous diverse menu--original but still accessible. Whether they enjoy fish, seafood, game or meat, they will find something they will enjoy. We had scallops to die for, walleye beautifully prepared and delicious steak. Desserts are a rare treat...yep have the ice cream. Truly a gem of a place that is always a special treat.

Our dinner was fantastic. I love the farm-to-table aspect and the food always tastes so fresh. It's such a lovely place and very different from other quality dining spots in Indianapolis. I would definitely recommend The Loft!

AWESOME is not a word I use often but that is the only way I can express the Loft and farm experience on a Friday night in August. My husband was jaw dropping and eyes rolling over his burger, it was so incredibly good. We all loved everything we tried from the cheese plate, four different entrees, great beer and wine......strawberry balsamic ice cream on a cone......Amazing night, expensive but worth the quality, wholesome food and friendliness of staff.

Good food, but I could not fit in the poor choice of chairs they use for dining room. They are for a small child not a grown person so I felt closed in by the side arms the entire meal and it was not a good experience. Wont be going back.

My husband and I were not impressed with the service. It was our first time dining there for brunch and the waiter did not suggest anything nor warned us about the small serving sizes of some of the dishes. My husband ordered ice coffee and dd not get milk or sugar. Later, the waiter forgot that it was coffee and refilled his glass with iced tea instead! All in all,it was not a great experience but we may go back to see what the dinner menu is about.

We have loved the Loft in the past. This evening started off with a so-so hostess wanting to seat us at a totally inappropriate table (2 of us at a large round that would seat six next to a large party with multiple toddlers). We requested and got alternate seating (they had numerous open tables so this was not a huge inconvenience). Our waiter was extremely slow. I observed him just standing in the kitchen several times. Other wait staff were hustling to attend to their tables. He was not very friendly, awkwardly discussed the menu, & seemed to be bothered to even wait on us. When he removed our dinner plates, not a word. No asking if we'd like dessert, no comment that he'd be back soon with a dessert menu, didn't ask if the meal was good .... nothing but a 5 minute wait after clearing the plates .... and then a super awkward discussion of the dessert menu. He almost threw the menus in front of us. I expect more out of a $102 pre-tip dining experience (just for food and non-alcoholic drinks). The one bright note was the very attentive woman who busses tables and super promptly refreshed drinks and water. We seen her there before and she's a gem.

Beautiful views from the restaurant overlooking the farm. The barn housing the Loft was restored from the 1860's. The service was great. The food was great, but portions are small. The cheese board was my favorite.

I used to think of Trader's Point Creamery as a "special occasion" venue, but the last two times we have dined there (this summer) we have been annoyed by families with very small, loud and restless children in the dining room. The restaurant is too expensive to qualify as "family" dining, and the ambiance is ruined by crying children who run around and knock into my chair.

I have eaten at this restaurant 3 times in the past and it was excellent! Chicken was best I have ever had. Talked it up big time to our friends who had never tried the Creamery before.
This visit was very different. Ribeye steak dinner was very good but the chicken ($31) was dry and almost tasteless compared to previous visits. I ordered a "summer greens salad" for $9 to split with a friend. We each had exactly 2 bites of salad greens and the rest of the "salad" was wild rice wheat berry. As I try to eat Paleo- ish the rice was a big surprise in this salad as I did not notice it in the ingredient list. Very disappointing to order a salad for $9 and get such a small portion and get mainly rice. Total bill for one couple was $150 (2 entrees, 1 salad, 2 glasses of wine, 2 beers). Talked to a friend who also ate here recently and he described a similar experience. We don't mind this big bill if a terrific experience but not sure I will ever go back at this point.

I am on my own personal mission to find the best of the best brunch places in town and The Loft is certainly towards the top of my list. The Loft is best for if you want an elevated brunch experience. This isn't your typically Denny's or average breakfast. The menu is enough to make you hungry just by reading it. I was impressed by the mix of more interesting and daring food options along side your tradition Hoosier faves. The variety of the menu makes The Loft a great place for everyone- even if you have picky eaters in your group.
I made a reservation, which I highly recommend, because space is this quaint little restaurant is definitely limited. The food was incredible, and portion sizes were good but not too big where you felt the need to lay on the couch all day and recover.
Highly recommend the Country Lox Eggs Benedict and the Bloody Mary (one of the best I've ever had), but you really can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

This is a very unique and interesting place. The food is almost all grown, farmed, prepared on site I would recommend trying the cheese board as all but one served is made at the creamery.
We had a slight problem with 3 out of the 4 entrees; they were cold. I hate sending things back but a $19 burger needs to be hot as well as the lamb and steak. My husband loudly complained (🙄) and one of our guests was too embarrassed to send his cold steak back. They replaced our meal with two hot entrees which were good. The manager was very apologetic and offered free dessert which we declined and they generously did not charge us for the bottle of wine we drank
I still would return when I am in town again but not my husband

I've been to Loft several times and the food is the only reason I come back. The restaurant's service somehow lack the 'farm to table' feel or warmth. Besides the food, I am not sure what makes the Loft any different from other restaurants who serve clean food.
