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.

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.

While I did not really expect all that much, given the close proximity to the campus, I was very pleasantly surprised. I had probably the best duck I have every had. Everyone liked their meals. Son and friend had steaks and they were very good. Wine selection, by the glass, was limited and just OK. Beer selection was broad and... More

It's difficult for someone with dietary restrictions to go out and eat. More often than not, you end up compromising your health, or stuck with one, lone salad. Not at Finch's. The chicken was moist and flavorful, and the wilted greens among the best I have had. Our server was attentive, professional, curious, and engaging. It was a marvelous way... More

Went here during Devour Bloomington and we were quite pleased with our selection! The restaurant is cozy and easy to miss from the street. Parking can be tricky, but not far from a public lot. Lots of choices and even small pizzas with interesting combinations of toppings. Vegans and carnivores can all be happy. There was a very good rabbit... More
