WESTFIELD – Those familiar with the Big Woods restaurants in Bloomington, Franklin, Nashville and Speedway will soon be able to enjoy those menu items in Westfield.

Big Woods Restaurants has announced plans to build an 8,000 sq. ft. facility in Westfield next year.

The restaurant will feature the familiar timber frame construction, full menu and outdoor seating. The restaurant will also feature Hard Truth Distilling Company spirits and Quaff ON craft beers.

“Our intent is to take the best of everything we’ve done so far in our other locations and bring that to Westfield,” said Jeff McCabe of Big Woods.

The new, stand-alone location will be located on the southwest corner of State Road 32 and US 31.

“Grand Park is a wonderful facility that is bringing people from all over the country to Westfield, so it will be great to be close to the new development that is happening in that area,” said McCabe.

The restaurant is expected to open next winter.

“Once again our community’s investment in Grand Park is doing exactly what it was intended to do,” said Mayor Andy Cook. “From its inception, Grand Park was seen as a way to spur long-term economic development for the surrounding area that will cater to our burgeoning hospitality industry.”

“The more people we’ve talked to from Westfield, the more confident we’ve become in our decision to build here,” McCabe added.
