Ever since Wolfies Grill opened its new Geist location in May of 2018 it has had overwhelming support from the community. As the New Year arrives, Geist residents will now be able to enjoy new and exciting changes at the restaurant.
Among the biggest changes is a fully-renovated second level exclusively for private parties. With the removal of the large bar, the upstairs venue now can seat more than 100 guests and is perfect for any private or corporate events.
“There is a demand for private venues,” says owner Scott Wolf. “This will be our biggest onsite venue yet, with a small bar as well as a large screen for corporate or private presentations. We will also host special events up there like our New Year’s Eve party. Not to mention, this room has the best view of any private room in Indianapolis overlooking the lake.”
Wolfies, which is known for its house specialties like the Pan Crusted Chicken, the Stonebrook Salmon and their Indiana Baby Back Ribs among many others, will also introduce a new menu for 2019. Many of those classic options will remain, but the menu will be updated with items suggested and requested by the Geist community.
“We really tried to listen to our guests and the community about what they were looking for,” Wolf says. “The new menu will have health conscious and diet-specific options like a house made Black Bean Burger, as well as more seafood and steak selections. Our goal is everything is going to be made from scratch in-house, including our soups and dressings.”
Wolfies at Geist will also have a larger wine list in 2019. Wolf is utilizing his top wine connoisseur from The Italian House, another successful restaurant that he owns, to oversee the changes and develop a more palatable list.
As the winter months continue, Wolf also encourages guests to drop by for lunch or dinner and watch their favorite sporting events. With more than 30, 65-inch flat screen TVs, Wolfies is an ideal location to catch the next big game.
“It’s a fun, ‘Cheers’ kind of atmosphere,” he says. “It’s a great setting overlooking the lake to sit and watch sports during the winter and into March Madness.”
Wolfies Grill at Geist is located at 11699 Fall Creek Rd. You can visit them online at wolfiesgrill.com or give them a call at 317-913-0293. The restaurant is currently taking winter reservations now through March for bigger parties.
