I have always recommended Ollys, good food great prices BUT this time we walked in and noticed they have expanded the menu big time, my first thought was "kitchen nightmares" lol. Unfortunately I was right, drinks came in dirty glasses, like you could see the stuff floating! Salads came with hair in one, and old lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers. We... More

If you work night shift, had an awful night, and need a place to unwind at 7am....go here. You will not be judged for boozing it up at such an early hour of the morning. They make strong cocktails, serve large portions of comfort food, and they engage in conversation or leave you alone depending on how you're feeling. I... More

I go to Ollies at least once a week and have always had a good experience. After trying many things on the menu I have always been pleased. The Tenderloin is by far the best. The perfect Hoosier Tenderloin. There is a breakfast special on weekdays that cannot be beat. $1.99 for 2 eggs, bacon and toast. The drinks here... More

I stopped by a couple of nights ago and got great, friendly service from bartender, Bobby.The breakfast was delicious and served hot and in a timely fashion. Service is so important today when spending dollars at a restaurant/bar. On this night, Bobby exceeded my expectations keeping water filled, asking how the food was, and offering to get me anything I... More

This is a lovely place located near downtown Indy. The staff is warm and friendly and the service is exceptional. The food and beverages are above and beyond all standards. I highly recommend this location for adults of all ages. It shares a highly diversified atmosphere. Please take time out to experience Downtown Olly's.

I had heard good things about Olly's along with some not so good. I decided to try this bar that serves food on a Saturday evening in March 2013, I parked in the small lot outside the plain building with NO visible signage giving the name of the place. Once inside, I was greeted by a friendly person who advised... More
