The vast majority of our Morgan County area restaurants are now open with regular dine in service. A few took some extra time to complete repairs or renovations, or just to make sure they were opening in the safest way possible. We're also lucky enough to have a few new restaurants opening up soon. To make it easy for you, we've put together a quick update on which eateries are reopening soon and what's brand new on the Morgan County dining scene. Of course, you'll want to check our full restaurant listings for all the available options.
Everyone's favorite Cajun eatery is set to reopen on July 1. The owners of Zydeco's Cajun took a bit of extra time to focus on repairs needed due to a spring tornado that hit Main Street Mooresville pretty hard, and also did a deep clean of the entire restaurant. We've missed them during the month of June, and we can't wait to gave some of our favorite Cajun specialties. Get ready to come out and enjoy this long-time Central Indiana favorite once again! They do not take reservations, but larger parties can call head (317-834-3900) to give them a heads up that you're on your way.
Forkey's Family Restaurant
Known as a local favorite, especially for breakfast, Forkey's Family Restaurant on Morgan Street in Martinsville also took some extra time to do some cleaning and repairs. They'll be opening back up in mid- to late-July, so if you've been missing them the wait is almost over! Watch their Facebook page for a more specific date in the coming weeks. Local parents will be relieved that their traditional back-to-school breakfast spot will be open in plenty of time for the next school year in August.
Ralph and Ava's Public House
Unfortunately, our friends at Ralph and Ava's Public House are still dealing with significant damage to the building sustained from the tornado that hit Mooresville this spring. Don't despair - they will reopen - but it will mostly likely be a few more months before repairs are complete and the restaurant can welcome you back. They hope to be open sometime this fall. We're anxiously awaiting their return.
Sgt. Pepper's Chicken
Currently open for carryout only, Sgt. Pepper's is gearing up to reopen their dining room space in early July. This local favorite has been missed by many. If you're in the mood for chicken (or an awesome pork tenderloin) this is the place to find it! From traditional bone-in chicken to tasty chicken bites or even fun additions like deep fried green beans, you'll find something to please everyone in your group at this local favorite.
Reopening in a brand-new location on the downtown square in Martinsville, The WaffleWhitch will be closed until the week of July 13th as they get settled in to their new digs.
