Corydon is a town in Harrison Township, Harrison County, Indiana. Located north of the Ohio River in the extreme southern part of the U.S. state of Indiana, it is the seat of government for Harrison County. Corydon was founded in 1808 and served as the capital of the Indiana Territory from 1813 to 1816. It was the site of Indiana's first constitutional convention, which was held June 10–29, 1816. Forty-three convened to consider statehood for Indiana and drafted its first state constitution. Under Article XI, Section 11, of the Indiana 1816 constitution, Corydon was designated as the capital of the state until 1825, when the seat of state government was moved to Indianapolis. During the American Civil War, Corydon was the site of the Battle of Corydon, the only official pitched battle waged in Indiana. More recently, the town's numerous historic sites have helped it become a tourist destination. A portion of its downtown area is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as the Corydon Historic District. As of the 2010 census, Corydon had a population of 3,122.

Great burgers, but be there also when the collector cars and trucks are being showcased. You'll love it. Don't forget the custards and ice cream.

Rotating over a 100 flavors of hand dipped ice cream, Emery's Premium Ice Cream has been an American tradition since the 50's. Emery's began during the great depression as a family business, tucked away in a residential neighborhood of New Albany, Indiana. Kevin Paul, owner of Alvin's Enterprises' purchased the memorabilia and equipment from the original Emery's store and ... Has recreated the atmosphere of the old-fashioned ice cream shop. Visiting Emery's today evokes the feeling of traveling back in time to the era in which Emery's originated. And it should; not much has changed aside from its new location in Corydon, Indiana. The bar stools, counter, vintage posters art, and most importantly the ice cream bins and soda fountains are all from Emery's original location. You can enjoy the same favorite Emery's homemade flavors that were enjoyed years ago. Visit Emery's today and discover why it has been a favorite for over 60 years!
We stopped in today and the two workers were super nice. It has old soda fountain bar with lots of ice cream to choose from and candy and bottled drinks. The Mackinac fudge ice cream is delicious! Super cute and quant shop! There were also picnic tables outside!

This is not a restaurant but is the BEST place to order/buy cakes! It beats any place we've tried (in the many cities we've lived in) for quality and price. Really truly gourmet quality pastry chef!

The pumpkin spice lattes were great! Loved the warm and friendly hometown atmosphere as well! Will definitely be back to try the large variety of options on the coffee list!

Haven't had Mexican food this delicious for a long time. The other great reviews are correct. The rice and beans on the side have good flavor, both the grilled and pulled chicken was clearly cooked fresh.

It had been a long time since eating at a Dairy Queen Brazier. Memories lured me into this place. When our burgers came they were cold! They used to taste awesome being grilled instead of fried. You can tell these were heated up ion a microwave. Just go here for ice cream that seems to have remained the same!

I just ate at the Cracker Barrel and loved it. Looks like everyone getting together and ganging up on Cracker Barrel for firing someone? As an employer this is their right and I promise you it had to be within reason and warnings issued.
Brad must have a lot of local friends who probably didn't even know his wife since they didn't even know her name. Just very unfair to the establishment.
Now for my review! I had the roast beef that was fork tender. Their baked apples, broccoli that I normally don't order that was cooked to protection with the most wonderful flavor. The lemonade is old fashion and not that sweet stuff. It's fabulous. The corn bread is fabulous and the old fashion. To top that off they have Mellow Cups that I use to eat as a child. That tops it all off. Fabulous friendly staff as always and FAST. Just love this place and have been to them all over the country.
Very consistent and love shopping. A storm was coming in and didn't have time to shop this time but there is always something special to purchase.
I highly recommend them any where you go. I just love um!!!

A very nice little restaurant. Great service, very clean and wonderful prices on their lunch menu but think they are only opened for lunchM closing at 2:00pm.
I was looking for a steak sandwich and thought it was awful reasonable as tenderloin and what I got was pork tenderloin and not the beef. Not sure if that was on the menu but sure I would have seen "Pork". :). It was good but not what I was truly looking for or would have gotten the hamburger special. :). Not a problem but I'm just saying.
Still very good and a nice place to stop if downtown in the historic area. Also stop at the ice cream shop, Emery's 2 blocks down. OMG...it's the best and topped my lunch off. Old fashion home made ice cream and also delightful taffy to take home. :).

Had never beem to this chain before, Definitely not what we expected and very disappointing. Thought they had platters - regular meals. Basically a sports bar with burgers & munchies. Had the molten chocolate dessert and got burnt. Told waitress that they needed to warn folks that the plate was very hot. Won't go to this chain again.

the salsa is good. I'm a fan of their crab meat enchiladas, my wife loves their Monica's platter. Prices are decent, not too expensive especially for what you get. Decent beer selection, and margaritas are good.
