Nice outside setting but a little road voice

Great food and service with outside seating, but street voice is loud. Very good menu with Fish Tacos, Breaded Tenderloin and a good kid's menu. The waiter was very good and very good to the kids because he listened to them.

This restaurant and bar feels welcoming and relaxing as soon as you enter. You can eat at the bar or sit at a table in the restaurant. Or dine on the patio. Lots of wood, nice decor and fun staff provide the perfect backdrop for good food and good times with friends. I will definitely go back!

I've only visited Binkley's for lunch with friends. It is a local restaurant in the artsy section of Indianapolis know as Broad Ripple. Expect to see hip young adults, business men/women, and "regular" people like myself in the lunch crowd. The lunch menu offers twists on sandwiches and burgers. I had the chicken bacon ranch wrap that was chock full... More

Great cozy bar and restaurant near everything! Great food and friendly wait staff. If you have a few calories to spare go for the chicken fingers and home made potato chips. The walnut, cranberry blue cheese salad with grilled chicken is great. Food and service are always consistent. Great outdoor seating in warm weather.

Binkely's Kitchen and Bar is a neighborhood eatery and bar that is consistently busy despite being in an area with numerous eating choices. The menu has diverse offerings ranging from pizza to Steaks and Seafood. The quality of the food is reliably a step up from other restaurants in the area in the same price range. The craft beer selection... More

It has the feel and look of a high end place, but the service is average and you realize you're just in a very nice neighborhood bar. The food was good. The noise level was higher than expected and it was difficult to hear conversation at the other end of our table (in a party of 8).

Met some folks for a working business lunch. This was my first time here...which is hard to believe. The food was excellent. The service was good. The prices were good. We will be back here for sure for future meetings.

I do not like the IMA's cafe, so whenever I leave I come here to eat, it never disappoints. The staff was very friendly and my food like normal was great. So if you are visiting the Indianapolis Museum of Art, dont eat at the cafe, come here instead. It does not disappoint.

We live in Broad Ripple, and within walking distance to Binkleys. It has always been a favorite of my wife and I. On this particular night, we mad reservations for 10 through open table earlier in the week, and arrived on time for our reservation. We were informed that because there was not another sizable table due to the high... More
