The Loft at Traders Point Ratings and Reviews

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.

Excellent service and we went on a friday night- they had a band playing outside. We sat on deck to be somewhat outside. Still were some bugs that kept landing on our food. 2 people, shared appetizer, 2 glasses of wine, 2 entrees and a shared dessert was $170 including tip! Overpriced for what you get

Service was great, very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was pretty disappointing, the descriptions all sounded great, but then the final product was underwhelming. My beef short rib entree fell flat, instead of a nice meaty short rib chunk, it was almost shredded into a stew-like consistency. Some chunks were chewy and maybe it was under cooked or cooked too quickly? The cornmeal pasta that accompanied was unpleasant and maybe also undercooked? As someone who lives and dines in NYC, I felt that the prices were high given the mediocrity of several of the dishes. I understand that the ingredients are all local and fresh, but a $31 chicken entree seems excessively expensive. My sister did really enjoy her risotto, and my brother in law his pork dish. Overall we were disappointed in the food, after we had heard such great things.

It is unique to drive out to Zionsville & obviously lots of locals choose it for family events but it had a few flaws. We enjoyed the location in the barn & we're anticipating a real experience.
We were seated fairly quickly after we finally were able to get to the hostess desk through the crowd. There really was no place to wait accept to hover over tables of diners. There is a nice patio area on the lower level by the shop & ice cream counter but no connection to the restaurant except a steep stairway I'm the shop. And no covered area.
Our waitress was friendly and attentive but service from the kitchen was very slow. We ordered a cheese board which offered 6 small samples of the cheeses made on site. For the price it was small. We also order beignets which were not good. They were heavy & had an off taste that seemed to be from the oil in which they were fried. Our entrees were the top recommendations of or server. My husband enjoyed his chilaquiles but felt they had excess tortillas. I ordered the brunch mac& cheese because I didn't really see anything that appealed to me on the Brunch menu and the server said it was her favorite. It was pasta with little chicken slivers with a creamy white sauce 2 or 3 yellow squash bites that were burned & a couple of mushroom slices. It was not horrible but not what I expected for brunch. There were no rolls, toast, or anything to accompany this other than the biscuit we had ordered a la carte.
The coffee was very good.
We would go back for lunch or dinner...if we didn't live in another city.

Neat location , food is usually good, service is good. We have been several times and only two complaints : chairs inside very,very uncomfortable and it is always a long wait to get your entree. This last time waited over an hour between salad and entree. And we were there before it got busy. This is a chronic issue for what could be a special place

I took my husband for Father's Day brunch. We sat outside on the screened porch. The service was phenomenal and, if possible, the food was even better. Since it was a special occasion, my husband had a bloody Mary and I had a mimosa. We started with the fruit plate and yogurt. Exceptional fresh fruit. My husband had the chilaquiles and couldn't stop raving about it. I had the eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast. The servings were very generous, although we managed to eat every crumb. Again, since it was a special occasion, we finished with a slice of pie a la mode. We enjoyed the food very, very much and we will definitely be back. Our bill was quite high, but we did splurge with drinks, appetizer and dessert, for breakfast.

Food and service was excellent, however the portions seem to be getting smaller and prices higher. Deck seating was too close together...so close we could hear the inappropriate conversation the party next to us was having.
