Always a local favorite

A great micro brew restaurant long before the trend, Oaken Barrel has been serving great food and great beer for over 20 years. Their Cobb Salad is the best in the Indianapolis area, very good selection of appetizers, burgers, and entrees. Good prices, very good service. They know how to make... read more

My wife and I have been regulars at Oaken Barrel ever since it opened. Along with some of the best beer in Indy, the menu is excellent with beer and food specials daily. It is a great place to go to cheer on your favorite teams or to celebrate a family occasion. In the summer try the outdoor patio. All... More

Out here for work and figured I would try the #1 ranked restaurant in Greenwood....I had their double IPA beer that was very good. I also ordered their boneless buffalo wings and a chicken entree. Like I said the food was just okay...maybe I just had high hopes since they were so highly reviewed but I was expecting a little... More

Decided to take some out of town friends to Oaken Barrel for dinner because I had heard great things about this place. Being a brewing company I expected a more casual atmosphere and it definitely was casual. We sat in the bar area and even with several football fans at the bar the noise level was not bad. However, if... More

Wife and I decided to stop by here with our son because it appears to be always busy and I've heard good things. We went on a Saturday night. What a mistake.... This place is very high energy and family friendly. By family friendly I mean there were screaming kids everywhere. The acoustics of the place just seemed to amplify... More

Like the menu and craft beers but it is always noisy. Servers are attentive. Seems to be popular with families.

My wife and I enjoyed a meal here while on a recent trip to Greenwood. The service was good and the food was delicious. We would definitely return on an occasional basis if in town.

My wife and I ate here for a quiet evening out, but it was anything but quiet. It was so loud we could barely hear each other talk. It did not make for a relaxing time at all, and I wanted the food to arrive just so we could get to somewhere quieter. The food was pretty good. I had... More

We stopped by on a drive through the town. Looked interesting although atmosphere was nice, and staff friendly food lacked pizazz. We had grilled buffalo chicken and breaded tenderloin with fries and onion rings. Chicken was dry and buffalo sauce not very good.. Tenderloin flat like a pancake and dry. Won't be back.
