Market Street Grill in Wabash, Indiana

Market Street Grill in Wabash, Indiana has been a downtown staple for 26 years.

My husband, Jeremy, and I had the chance to check out the Wabash County restaurant sans kids on our first weekend away in…way too long!

I had received more than a few emails telling me about the great steak, chicken, and dessert at the Market Street Grill. This time, I wasn’t going to miss it for anything!

After an absolutely packed afternoon exploring other parts of Wabash we certainly worked up an appetite! You should know that Market Street Grill is busy. Really, really busy.

We waited, took a walk around the block (which was really silly given the shoes I was wearing and the giant hill on one side) and sat for a bit inside. The atmosphere is great! Lots of conversation and table hopping because, hey, it is a small Indiana town. Everyone mostly knows everyone else. It did give me a chance to check out the food getting passed around. Whoa boy!

When it was our turn to sit down, I couldn’t wait to dig in! We started with California Nachos. Spinach and artichokes in a cream cheese base covered in mozzarella cheese and diced tomatoes. It was so good!

The main course? Drunk’in Chicken, a buttermilk soaked chicken sauteed in Sauternes wine and butter for me and Steak on a Stick for my husband. Don’t let the name fool you–this is beef at its best!

Market Street Grill offers fun and unique choices for side items. I chose a fresh-tasting Greek salad (I have a thing for Feta cheese) and the BLT Soup as my side. Creamy and delicious!

My husband went with Green Bean Casserole (a classic and one of his favorites) and the World Famous Market Street Grill Chili. As you may remember, we’ve tasted Market Street Grill’s chili before at the Wabash Cannonball Chili Cook-off for Charity. After that event, you are probably surprised we can still look at the stuff–let alone eat it! But we do. I can’t explain it either.

Our waitress brought out a drool-inducing dessert tray. It was hard to decide between the Cookies and Cream Pie, Creme Brulee, and the rest of the other good bad-for-you type of things. Based on the recommendation of others, we had to go with the giant slab of Peanut Butter Pie. We shared this creamy, cool monster and still had some left over. I highly recommend it!

No one will go away hungry at Market Street Grill. You can tell it’s run by someone who enjoys food because the portions are awesome.

You truly pay for what you get. No skimpy, wimpy portions here! They know food. Bonus: the owner is a riot!

A big little Indiana thank you to Jim for his fabulous advice and the glass of wine.
