Premier Canal Dining with a Slice of History

Named for Hoagy Carmichael's most famous song, Stardust, the Stardust Terrace Café by Jonathan Byrd’s is a wonderful location for a lunch break while visiting the History Center or strolling along the Central Canal. Under the twinkling ceiling, you’ll feel as though you’re stepping back in time to dine under a starlit evening in early 1900s Indianapolis. And in the warmer months, you can enjoy the beautiful view from the Kruse Family Stardust Terrace overlooking the Indianapolis Canal Walk.
