WESTFIELD - Nashville-based Big Woods Restaurants has announced plans to build a new location in Westfield. The 8,000-square-foot restaurant, near Grand Park Sports Campus, is expected to open next winter.

The restaurant will built on the corner of U.S. 31 and State Road 32 in Westfield. The city says the restaurant will feature a full menu, outdoor seating, and the company's Hard Truth Distilling Co. 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. "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. The more people we’ve talked to from Westfield, the more confident we’ve become in our decision to build here."

Westfield Mayor Andy Cook says the decision to build the new Big Woods location in the Hamilton County city shows how Grand Park is fulfilling its vision as a catalyst for long-term economic development.

Big Woods also has locations in Bloomington, Franklin and Speedway. The latter opened on Main Street in Speedway in May 2016.
