This place has a ton of outdoor seating, and the deck in the back (on Fergusan) allows dogs. Great menu and pleasant staff. We'll definitely be back!

There are two Broad Ripples. One is the avenue itself where bars, bars, and more bars are. The second are places a block or two north and south of Broad Ripple Ave. Those places are good but less bar-like. Fire By The Monon is a fine restaurant near the Monon Trail. You have two patios for outdoor dining, a bar,... More

Try the fried green tomatoes and fish tacos. Warm and friendly service. Reasonable prices. Fun and relaxing to sit outside on a nice summer evening. Great beer selection

Great little local place in Broadripple. Have had different entrees here and nothing disappoints. Good wine selection; try one of the wines in the "bargain basket" for $20 a bottle. Bar area is small but fine. Wait staff are courteous and efficient. When the weather warms up, get there early for outside seating near one of the fireplaces.

We were in Broadripple last night and happened upon Fire by the Monon. The craft beer menu drew us in and the special grouper sandwich and fish tacos caught our eye. What excellent choices! The grouper sandwich was the BEST fish sandwich that we have ever had, and the tacos were also excellent! The waitstaff was friendly, helpful, and responsive... More

This restaurant is a little off the beaten path from the main town drag, but it was a great local find! We had a fantastic waitress who knew the menu very well. The beer was great and the food was pretty good - it wasn't the best burger or beer cheese that I have ever had, but it was definitely... More

We recently dined at this restaurant while visiting Indianapolis. Although it was a busy Friday evening, our party of three was seated inside without waiting. The menu was varied with moderately priced entrees. The wait staff was knowledgeable and personable. All needs were expediently and politely met. All three meals were excellent. I would return to this restaurant if I... More
