Eat + Drink

Rainmakers Eat + Drink is our monthly social event. We travel all around the city to experience Indy’s best independent restaurant establishments.  Everyone welcome! Bring a friend or colleague and participate in a relaxed networking environment while enjoying the great tastes of Indy.

Join us in June at Rick’s Cafe Boatyard!

5:30-6:30 Cocktails
6:30 – 8 p.m. Dinner

Note: We’re responsible for finding a great restaurant! You’re responsible for your food and drink!

Let’s support a local restaurant, get to know other folks, and have great food and beverages all at the same time!


About Rick’s Cafe Boatyard:

When Rick Albrecht moved to Indianapolis from Louisville in the 1970s, he was an insurance salesman who had previously been enlisted in the United States Navy. Rick would quickly become a well-known restaurateur, owning several bars and eateries in the greater Indianapolis area, including downtown, Geist, Keystone and eventually Eagle Creek.

Rick’s Cafe Boatyard has grown and evolved significantly since opening in 1994. The space now boasts several decks – an awning on the side of the restaurant, an “extended deck” with retractable siding to keep rain and wind away, and a large bar with an area for nightly live music.

The inside dining space includes a large dining room with a waterfront view from nearly every seat, a bustling bar, and two private event areas — one of which comes with a private outdoor terrace. While the menu has changed over the years, one thing remains constant: Rick’s has the freshest seafood in Indianapolis. Our seafood is carefully chosen from locations around the world, and our steaks and chops are locally sourced and of the finest quality.

Rick’s Cafe Boatyard is open every day of the year besides Christmas Day, and is a true gem on the west side of Indianapolis. Many patrons know Rick and Tena, and stop by their table to say hi when dining in the restaurant. The atmosphere at Rick’s is one-of-a-kind. Stop in to see for yourself!
