Great cocktails and farm to table food

Fun, hip, delicious are words that come to mind when I think of Bluebeard. Delicious food and hand crafted cocktails. Love the vibe of this farm to table restaurant and the hipster neighborhood.

Interesting, innovative food that was quite tasty but small portions with a big price tag. Space is cramped - you feel like you are sitting on top of the next table so no private conversations.

The menu was innovative and exciting. Local produce are utilized preferably and the food was not overwhelmed by too much seasoning or sauce. I had the pork belly which was surprising lean but still tasty and brussel spouts. A refreshing change from the usual steakhouse flare. Interesting cocktail selection.

I asked for something boozy and citrusy, and the bartender dreamed something up. It was SO good that my friend wanted one, but that tasted a little more "green". He dreamed that up, too. Amazing! I ate Uni for the first time there (sea urchin) and it was great. Pasta was great. Everything about this place is great, except waiting... More

I brought an out of town visitor here for dinner. We arrived at or near opening time of 5pm, making getting a table very straightforward. The bread basket is a collection of breads from the local bakery, all excellent. The selection of local draft beers has something in it for everyone. The egg over toast and truffle appetizer and the... More

My husband and I were passing through Indy and tried this place and are very glad we did. The service is perfect, the food is delicious, the portions are large and priced fairly. We had the charcuterie plate, beet salad, caeser salad, brussel sprouts, and salmon-- all wonderful. My only complaint was my seat was on a long bench shared... More

This is my second trip here for my second conference in Indy - Bluebeard was my first stop after arriving! It has an amazing, young vibe and the staff here really cares about amazing food and a great bar. Were there for dinner at 10 pm (my flight was late), but I suspect this place has become so popular since... More
