We stopped here on a Saturday for lunch. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. I had a tuna melt and grilled asparagus...delicious. My friend had the grilled cheese with bacon and it was delicious as well. Lovely spot on the canal. Will come back and try the Bloody Mary bar on Sunday.

To die for Shrimp Cocktail and Sweet and spicy shrimp starters. Do both! Great service and a wonderful place to hangout at both night and in the day you can sit outside. Prices are reasonable and the service was not only excellent but entertaining! I have a Service dog and he was treated with "white gloves" also. He was served... More

This is a small and very charming restaurant in the Broadripple neighborhood in Indianapolis. You eat in the front room or the "bar", or on the covered patio with a view of the canal. I really recommend the Rubin. I have had Rubin sandwiches all over the country and this is one of, if not the best I've had. Or... More

Went with a group of 6 - we all tried different items. It was all "ok" but nothing to really brag about. Maybe we just got the wrong things but friends tenderloin "fair" - BBQ was rated as "ok" but nothing out of the ordinary. My Black Bean burger was good but not homemade so I think we need to...

Had a group of 8 during a busy Sunday brunch. Very kind waiter named Grizz took very good care of us. Great food!

I am a Broad Ripple local. Great place on a nice day to sit outside overlooking the canal. However, can get very crowded on nice evenings, especially on the weekends,so go early. My favorite is their shrimp cocktal - huge very tasty fresh-tasting shrimp - don't know where they get them in Indiana - but they are among the best... More

They have a nice view if you sit outside but we opted to stay inside because it was very hot the day we visited. I had the Hoosier Tenderloin sandwich and I was as good as any I've had elsewhere. Everyone else loved their food too. Our waiter was great. Will probably go back next time I'm in the area.

Alright, so maybe the canal isn't really "lovely," but it is relaxing to be by water. If the weather is good, you ought to sit outside and enjoy your meal. The drinks are strong and the food is tasty. The menu is not large, but they have a variety of things to choose from and a lot of seasonal fare.

Alright, you all know...I go places, I try places, I try things. So my new/old goal is to make a concentrated effort to stay away from chain restaurants as much as possible. Folks, I picked a good one to start with. This place is so local, I felt like a regular on my first visits. Everyone seated around the bar... More

We love this restaurant.Lunch and dinner inside or out are all good options.Everything on the menu is good although the burgers and the pork sliders are my favorite. Great location,good service and your dog is welcome if you want to sit out side.It can get little crowed but it is worth it if you have to wait.
