Big Woods to Open Restaurant in Hamilton County

Hamilton County, Ind. – Big Woods Restaurants announced the opening of its seventh location, Big Woods Hazel Dell, at Hazel Dell Crossing near the intersection of Hazel Dell Road and 146th Street in Noblesville. The new 7,700-square-foot location will open for business this winter.

Centrally located among Carmel, Westfield, Fishers and Noblesville, this is Big Woods Restaurants’ first expansion into Indianapolis’ north side. Over the past year, Big Woods Restaurants have served more than 780,000 guests.

“Growing demand on the north side of Indianapolis made the decision to expand to Noblesville a no-brainer,” said Co-founder and Executive Chairman Jeff McCabe. “Our goal is to make this new location a thriving restaurant providing a one-of-a-kind dining experience for everyone to enjoy.”

Big Woods Hazel Dell will offer a menu similar to those at Big Woods’ Speedway and Franklin locations, featuring both pizza and brew-pub selections alongside craft beverages from affiliate brands Quaff ON! Brewing Co. and Hard Truth Distilling Co.

The restaurant will provide seating for approximately 250 guests — including 40 patio spots — and two private rooms for party rentals. Visitors will have access to both a 21+ bar area and family-friendly booth and table seating.

Companywide, Big Woods Restaurants has more than 400 employees throughout all their Indiana locations, and the new Noblesville restaurant is expected to increase that number by 80. The restaurants sold more than 23,700 pizzas and 21,700 pulled pork nachos in 2018, and they expect those numbers to increase as they attract new guests to the Noblesville location.

While renovation of the new site is in progress, the other Big Woods locations are gearing up for a busy fourth quarter and celebrating the official arrival of fall with the launch of Quaff ON!’s popular seasonal brews, Put a Fork In It Pumpkin Ale and Aquaffalypse Fresh-Hopped IPA.
