Alberto’s

Reviews:
I lucked out on a trip home that my uncle decided to take me to one of his favorite spots for lunch. This awesomely snug place is beautifully decorated and feels kinda like a place you can call home once you walk in. The staff knew my uncle by name and were so friendly. I ordered their spaghetti (called something far fancier than my brain remembers) and asked if I could have one meat ball added. Oh my goodness was this delicious. The sauce was a perfect blend of spices and not overtly saucy creating each noodle to have a kick of flavor. The meatball was a salty surprise that was so soft to cut with a fork. The pricing was excellent and I hope to go here again, because it was so good!
Alberto's was recommended to us by a local Stayed in Corydon all day just to eat here but it was worth it' The prices were a little bit higher than we wanted to pay but when we got our food it was well worth it the Bruchetta was delicious the ceasar salad was amazing!! The entrees were by far the best Italian food I have ever eaten!! Don't forget to order dessert!
Fantastic food! Fantastic staff! Will make this a regular stop when I am in Corydon! Wow! Not overstuffed just right!

Bit more current a review than the top reviews. Checking in, the smoke smell is completely gone - I had to check the dates on the last couple of reviews but the place is now smoke free. Another casualty chalked up. Woe for us smokers. Otherwise the place is clean, servers are friendly and the food is good. Try the cheesesteak eggs. They do them extremely well.
Indiana no longer allows smoking in any restaurant. For that we can all be grateful. The menu hasn't changed since my last review. You can still get a big, greasy pile of artery clogging Americana for just a few bucks. The staff has changed over the years. Most of them are very good at their jobs and get it all done right without breaking a sweat. During our most recent visit, Sexy Beast and I were subjected to the bungling and mishaps that go along with two new employees being left to their own devices. They did correct the mistakes that were made with a smile and an apology.
Open 24 hours a day, with free WiFi and plenty of places to charge whatever electronics need charging. When you're sleeping in a collapsed tent on top of grass covered in goose poop and bathing in a river this comes in handy. Also, when we walked in one of the women asked us: "Smoking or non-smoking?" and before we could even begin to answer another woman cut in with: "Do we even HAVE a non-smoking section?" Basically this place is super friendly, the cheesy egg combo is the best freaking thing I have had in life (and really you know if you like Waffle House in general this is THE BEST ONE EVER that I have been to, and I am basically a Waffle House aficionado) and it is perfect for chain-smoking and drinking cup after cup of coffee and plotting adventures at 4AM. As Tobias Fünke once said about Burger King, it's a WONDERFUL restaurant.

Very quaint, but some rooms are way better than others, in ways you might not expect. Best rooms: Harrison, Lincoln. The Honeymoon suite has pros and cons. Full kitchen at your disposal, breakfast made each day, fireplaces in many rooms... this is a perfect little getaway spot. Be sure to visit Butt Drugs right next door! (Check YouTube for Butt Drugs and you'll see why! See a part of internet fame while you're in town. Hehe)

Papa Murphy’s Take & Bake Pizza

1885 Old Highway 135 NW
Corydon, 47112
Reviews:
The pizza is really pretty standard fare. There's nothing all that special about it except that you can get a huge, heavy pie for ten bucks on Tuesdays. The thing that makes this location great is the staff. These guys are always courteous, friendly, and cheerful. They treat the customers and each other well, even when there are a half a dozen large orders to be filled and the customers are less than kind to them.

El Nopalito

1506 N Old Hwy 135
Corydon, 47112
Reviews:
HUGE servings -- my hubby and I usually split one entree and we both end up stuffed. El Nopalito has THE BEST margaritas in town; but watch out... they'll kick your butt! I never order the steak meals. In my experience, beef fajitas, carne asada and the like, are usually made from round steak, which is tough if it's not slow-cooked. Go with the chicken instead. This place is packed most evenings. Here's a dining-out tip for you... you won't go wrong if you eat someplace where the parking lot is full! The locals know what's good!
Decor is not much to talk about, but service is fast, serving size is huge (way too much), and the food is great tasting. Probably the best Mexican food in this area.
Love this place! Huge portions and great margaritas! If you like Mexican this is the place. We have been coming here for about ten years now. Still great.

Frisch’s Big Boy

125 Sky Park Dr NE
Corydon, 47112
Reviews:
This place is fucking depressing. It's always empty. If there are people in there, they are few and silent. The waitstaff is even less talkative. I'm tempted to spike the soup of the day with Prozac. Anyway. The food. Not good. Maybe that's why everyone is so bummed out.
I have stopped by this place a few times while traveling over the years. The salad/soup/fruit bar was very good. We also had the open-faced roastbeef which i would recommend. It was fairly packed for the middle of the week. Had to buy the "Big Boy" bank for my little one, its part of Americana!
Pretty decent. Nothing special but not horrible. Food is kind of bland but not uneatable, and I do like the big boy burger itself.

Alberto’s Italian Restaurant

313 Federal Dr NW

Reviews:
A special treat to find really good Italian food here in Our new hometown Corydon. Friday night is often our night out...we will be coming back to taste more of the "made to order" beyond delicious food on this menu. There were four of us and we were not disappointed. Friendly service, and wonderful warm bread with rich oil and herbs while our orders were being prepared. One of my Italian favorites is Eggplant Parmesan, freshly prepared eggplant lightly sautéed with wonderfully fresh ingredients...tomatoes, basil, ricotta, cheese, tomato sauce and ??? Delicious! My date ordered Italian sausage with peppers and was reminded of our favorite restaurants on the "Hill" in St Louis. Chicken piccata beautifully presented and very tasty. And the freshly made Lasagna wad pronounced tasty. We felt well treated as Alberto came to. Heck on us and our meals.
So...a bit of a drive from Ft Knox but well worth it. Everything is made to order, so if you want to change something, go for it, they'll accommodate you. The stuffed hot peppers are delicious, the eggplant was delicious and to top it off a glass of wine. Excellent.
Don't waste your time !! Very limited menu. I asked the waitress what their best dish was and she showed me 3 selections and none are Italian dishes ! Found that odd since this was advertised as an Italian restaurant. After reading this pitiful menu I left. Thanks but no thanks.

Point Blank Brewing Company

105 E Beaver St

Reviews:
We came to Corydon for a Father's Day adventure...this was definitely an adventure. We are always on the look out for a new brewery to try so when I was planning our Corydon trip, this was a no brainer. When we walked in, the smell was not appealing. It was a mixture of dirt and cleaner. We were sat promptly and my husband and I ordered a flight to split, so we could sample the beer. Their flight was served in half filled rocks glasses and the brief explanation from the waitress was not helpful. The porter was ok, the ipa was drinkable, the other two tasted like cleaner. We decided to both go with bottles of some of our other favorites. Their pricing on their bottle beer is inexpensive, although my husband was disappointed to order a pint from the menu, to be given an 11.8 ounce bottle. The food was ok. We ordered our children a pizza to share, which they enjoyed. I ordered the chicken sandwich and my husband order the tenderloin. The manager delivered our food, and we asked if we had the correct food and he said yes. It took 3 trips to the kitchen to get my husband's order correct and about three bites in, we realized that they had switched our order. Again, we love discovering new breweries and eating local, in new towns, however, our next trip to Corydon will not include visiting Point Blank brewery.
I was spending the day at the library across the street and needed a sugar boost to get me through the afternoon. I hopped over to Point Blank Brewing Company to grab a quick nibble. The Coconut Cream Pie was delicious and the coffee was hot and fresh. The service was friendly and quick. The waitress even offered to pour me a cup of coffee to go.
Nothing else like this exists in the entire county. I can't wait to go back this summer to go there again. The owner is very nice, and the bartender was great when I went in summer of 2014. Each appetizer and pizza I have tried was great. This is exactly what downtown Corydon has always needed.

Reviews:
We had a great experience - good comfort food, and wonderful service, all at a very reasonable price. The waitress brought refills of sweet tea, coffee, and was quite attentive. We were a party of six, and she did a great job separating the check for us and always had a smile. We highly recommend the baked sweet potato side, the coca cola cake, the broccoli side, and the biscuits. The food was hot and very satisfying.
We ate here twice in a 24 hour period. We got in from the road late around 9:45pm and stopped for a late dinner with our kids. The greeter at the register was very friendly and so welcoming with her warm smile! Our waiter was prompt, attentive and kid friendly. The service was fast, our food was hot and he was on top of everything! Clearing plates that were done, refills with out having to ask and they were out of kids menus so he went out of his way to go find paper so our 2 year old could color! I was just as impressed with breakfast! We woke up and ate there on our way out for breakfast. Different register receptionist but just the same great service. Friendly, smiled, asked how we were and made a point to talk to our kids. Our waitress was just as sweet as could be and knew the menu and was able to answer my questions even though she was visibly busy. She went out of her way and made sure my 2year olds milk was heated up for her when she did not have to! Once again refills with out asking and the food came out quick and was hot. She was very attentive and friendly. Enjoyed our short stay eating time at Cracker Barrel. Highly recommended.
I'll give it 3 stars because the only time I am satisfied after eating here is when I get the "special" for the day. It seems as if they try hard on these items and the rest are less appetizing. The service is usually pretty fast. The long waits can be made to feel shorter with the store on the inside.

Papa John’s Pizza

2363 Hwy 135 NW
Corydon, 47112
Reviews:
Sexy Beast prefers Papa John's. I don't know why but it isn't a deal breaker so we order from this one fairly often. Nobody will deliver to our house. That's not because we are scary or anything. There's some rule about how far the drivers are willing to go to get a $4.00 tip. So, Sexy Beast has to drive his ass over and pick it up so he gets to choose where the pizza comes from. Anyway, if they get the order right, all is well. If they don't, Sexy Beast will bellow and shake his fist until the do. They usually do, though.
