Blown Away by the Grouper Fish Sandwich!

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... read 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

Our family went to Fire yesterday (Sunday) for lunch. We just happened to see it while driving by- saw that they had outdoor seating and thought we'd check it out! We ended up having to sit inside, but that was fine, too. The menu was interesting and had quite a few things on it that sounded good to all of... More

Had lunch here and was pleased! The outdoor dining was nice and had a big canopy over it for shade. There is something for everyone here as well! I had the fish tacos while the rest of my family had the "grown-up" grilled cheese, burger, split pea soup/salad combo... Everyone's was really good! Wasn't too crowded for Sunday lunch. The...

I had been coming at least 2xweek since spring and today I took my husband as we are looking for a place to host around 19 people next Fri. eve. I have had a variety from the menu, but today both hubby and I had pulled pork sliders with a side (the onion rings are rich but to die for)... More

In the back streets of Broad Ripple, a group of five met for a birthday dinner. The staff was friendly and accommodating. There was nice seating inside and outside. The food was plentiful and good but virtually everything was quite spicy. This place seems to be a favorite with the young (20's - 30's) crowd that frequent Broad Ripple. Try... More

Dinner this past Saturday night was wonderful. It was six people in our group. The place was packed, so I suggest getting there around 11:30 am for lunch and 7pm for dinner. Great outside seating, but equally as nice inside. We loved the bar area, with it's tall table and rustic character. Great (all fresh and homemade) menu. If you... More

Man I love driving down the hidden streets with converted house-to-restaurants all lit up. It's like you're in another country. Fire by the Monon hit the spot. Excellent food. Modest prices (under 20). The service was great annd they hellped me out with gluten-free choices. We had the fire roasted chicken and the spinach salad with chicken. Both were plentiful... More

I went to fire on the monon after being advised that their food was excellent but the service was terrible. I couldn't agree more. The sweet potato fries were heavenly as was my veggie burger however it took over an hour to get our food when we were one of six parties there at the time on a Tuesday night.... More
