One of my favorite things about Indiana is that the seasons change. Leaves turn bright shades of orange, red and yellow in the fall; white snow covers the ground in the winter; and the grass turns a vibrant shade of green in the spring. While I love the changing seasons, I do miss the fun outdoor concerts, farmers markets, park visits of spring, summer and fall. So, when it gets too cold to do those fun outdoor activities- I eat! Every week this winter I will highlight one of my favorite Hamilton County, Indiana restaurants. As a foodie (my definition of foodie is simply someone who loves to eat), I will happily talk about the small diners, the hole in the wall eateries, the fancy French bistros, the big restaurants and more. NOW, onto the good stuff - enjoy, and feel free to share your own favorite Hamilton County, Indiana dining spots!

Restaurant of the Week Week 13

Alexander's on the Water - For the last ROTW post of this winter season, I thought I would focus on a sweet, summer treat - ice cream! In 1998, the owners of the popular Noblesville eatery, Alexander's on the Square, decided to expand their booming business. They settled a space located just off of beautiful Morse Resevoir in Cicero. Open seasonally March through October, Alexander's on the Water offers 16 hand dipped ice cream flavors, including the option of soft serve. Hungry for more? The Alexander's on the Water menu has many of the same specialties as Alexander's on the Square- yummy fries, tenderloin sandwiches, chicken tenders - but differs just enough to cater to boaters and people on the go. There is even a convenient drive through for customers craving a quick ice cream cone! Also, on a hot summer day - take advantage of the outdoor seating and lake views - simply sit back with your hand dipped cone, relax and enjoy the scenery...
