food is good, can be noisy

Finch's is a good restaurant near the IU Campus. It is often crowded and noisy however, so it may not be the best choice for meetings. I particularly like their pub lunches. We often order the lamb there. The food is always fresh and freshly cooked.

Great selection of beers - local and further afield. Pizzas were outstanding and there are a lot of choices on the menu. They even do gluten free pizza (and beer too!). Kids love it too.

This restaurant was so good!! The hanger steak was so tender and the focaccia bread was great! BUT... what really made a difference was our waiter JOSH!! If you go to this restaurant, do yourself a favor and ask for Josh's section! He was very professional and he knew everything about the place and the food! He was efficient and... More

My choice for my birthday dinner proved to be excellent but it was chosen with past experience in mind. The food and service have always been fine and last night was no exception. Our waitress, Ashley, was clearly concerned with our satisfaction and made helpful suggestions. But we did choose to dine early and when IU is not in session... More

My wife and I went to dinner to celebrate the end of the school year over graduation weekend. We found that the menu had been limited for graduation in an obvious effort to make service more efficient and turn tables faster. While I understand this, many of the best looking dishes on the regular menu had been removed. Our salads... More

A dining experience, like the experience of life itself, should be judged along multiple dimensions using multiple yardsticks. And those dimensions are not the same for different persons or even for the same person at different times or for different moods. To cite only one of an infinity of possible examples: a couple of highly discerning gourmets will value a... More

Don't get me wrong- the food here is excellent- high quality, innovative, yet comforting and decadent! If you are on a limited budget, you might not enjoy your experience, because the portions are normal/less than what is typically served, and the prices are steep- items are served a la carte. If you're one of the many folks we often see... More

I can't help but order the rabbit when it's on the menu. It is so good I have dreams about it. Honest. Their other dishes are really good, too. Specifically, the Duck Confit. They have a nice curated collection of fine beers. Great atmosphere for a nice meal. I've eaten there solo, with friends and for a business lunch. Always... More

I had the lamb pasta and really, really, really liked it. I'm told the pizza is also solid. Enjoy !!

We had an enjoyable lunch here. A cute, cozy atmosphere with good service. The menu is a little limited. The macaroni and cheese came highly recommended as was the root beer. Food was good but a bit pricey for what we had.
