Dinner with Friends at Weber Grill


Last night I got to enjoy a great meal at Weber Grill in Indianapolis with some friends from college. Normally when the alumni office schedules an Indianapolis alumni dinner I seem to always have a conflict in my schedule. It was great when my friend Kim contacted me via Facebook and invited me to join her and another friend, Micah, out to dinner. I chose Weber Grill because I’d never been there, but always "smelled" it when I’ve been downtown and was immediately hungry.

After I made reservations I quickly setup an event in Facebook and invited each of us to it with all the details. I arranged to pick-up Kim at University Place Conference Center & Hotel and we would meet Micah at the restaurant.

The interior of the restaurant is great. It balances being very classy with being open and welcome of a casual atmosphere as well. We were seated in one of their side rooms and were immediately welcome with drinks and their pretzel rolls. Which were amazing! My daughter wouldn’t try them until I pulled the center out of them, then I think she had a couple of baskets all her own.

The kid’s meals were great and loaded with food. My son (who had a little pocket incident walking to the restaurant) got ribs with broccoli and cheese, fresh fruit and tater tots. He wasn’t a big fan of the taste of the BBQ sauce so we ended up exchanging those for a plain cheeseburger which was also amazing.

My adventurous daughter played it safe with plain cheese pizza, but was also enjoying the same variety of sides as her brother did with his meal. They also both got a yummy ice cream sundae in a waffle cone to finish off the meal.

My wife enjoyed the beef brisket, which was cooked to perfection, with baked beans, and mashed potatoes. I had the blackened catfish with garlic sautéed spinach and whipped sweet potatoes. Everything was absolutely delicious!

The conversation with great friends and reconnecting or connecting them with my own family was very much appreciated and valued. What is it about sharing a meal together that makes relationships feel so much more intense and appreciated?

If you’re looking for a great dining experience in Indianapolis and having tried Weber Grill Restaurant, then you owe it to yourself to experience it. They even have a special grilled Thanksgiving feast you can enjoy.
