We asked you to send us nominations on great customer service from around Hamilton County and you did!  For individuals, we received nominations for Rachel from the Westfield Historical Society, Cheresa at the Hilton Garden Inn Carmel, Robert at the Springhill Suites Carmel and Britni from the Renaissance Indianapolis/North.  Our committee chose Britni as the winner because of what the person nominating her had to say: Britini-Renaissance

Britni is one of the most dependable, consistent, and friendly associates at the Renaissance Hotel.  Just recently, a guest took the time to send a letter to the GM, Paul O’Conner, to compliment Britni’s dedication to service.  The guest said his arrival experience with Britni was “wonderful!” He told Mr. O’Conner how Britni upgraded him to the Club Lounge floor.  To his surprise and delight, when he arrived to his room at 4pm, Britni had two of his favorite beers delivered to his room with Britni’s compliments.  Britni treats everyone likes VIP and is highly respected around the hotel.

For the business nominations, the 2009 U.S. Senior Open Championship Committee, Kelties Restaurant and Peterson’s Restaurant were nominated, with Peterson’s winning the award.

My husband & I wanted to celebrate our anniversary in a special way, so we went to Peterson’s Restaurant.  From the moment we walked in, the hostess, wait staff, management and chef treated us like royalty. The food was cooked perfectly and came out without any lag time.  As the staff walked by they greeted us with a “Happy Anniversary!” they also brought out a (free) chocolate fudge type of cake at the end – it was so good.  Overall, the ambiance, food and service made for a perfect Anniversary.

Thank you to those that made nominations. Congrats to both the winners and as well as all the nominees.  Excellent service is what makes Hamilton County, Indiana a great place to visit!

Yesterday marked the 3 year anniversary of my husband and I getting married.  In 3 years time we have done so much (bought a house, had a baby) that we decided to take it slow for the celebration.  We handed the little guy over to a trusted sitter and drove to Peterson’s Restaurant in Fishers…

Now, we are not used to the kind of comfortable luxury that is Peterson’s.  In the past 15 months since C was born, we have been more of the pick up a quick meal kind of people.  As soon as we walked in, we were treated like royalty.  The hostess took our name and said “Happy Anniversary!  Would you like a picture to mark the occasion?”  Johnny and I have a lot of strengths as a married couple, but picture taking is not one of them, so we passed on the photo.

The hostess then led us back to a dimly lit corner booth.  The first thing we noticed was that the restaurant was pretty full, but still quiet enough to where we could hear each other and actually have a conversation.  Our server, Bill, was quick to greet us and we never felt a lag between courses.  We started with jumbo lump crab cakes for me – yum – and a lettuce wedge with blue cheese crumbles, dressing, tomato and bacon for him.

We both ordered the filet, and they came out cooked to order.  I added scallops to my filet and he topped his with a creamy garlic butter.  The sides were large enough for 2 (or more) to share – so we also sampled a variety of perfectly cooked side items (more on those in a moment).  The entire time we ate, we talked about dessert.  To our surprise, they were kind enough to bring us a complimentary chocolate-y fudge type of dessert (that was covered in a raspberry sauce) to share in the joy of our anniversary.  Did I mention the 2 glasses of tasty Riesling (I can’t remember which Riesling I selected from the long wine list, but I am sure that Bill can remember) or the sweet truffles that are given to each guest as they depart?

After we left I asked Johnny what he would say if he were to blog about the experience.  Here is what he said:

I ordered the double filet and ate every bite of the perfectly cooked dish…  I regrettably had to share the side items with my wife because the creamed spinach, asparagus and au gratin potatoes were amazing.  At one point I left the table for no more than 2 minutes, and when I came back she had eaten almost every bite of the chocolate dessert.  I had to fight her off for the last few bites.

If you are here for a romantic Indiana getaway or are looking for an unforgettable (local) Indiana dining experience, visit Peterson’s Restaurant.  You will not leave hungry OR disappointed.
