Good menu selection and beer list. Great stop for lunch date, meet up with friends after work, or to catch the game with friends.

I don't know where to start describing how much we enjoyed our dining experience here! I did have some inside help, since my daughter was a waitress here and she was with us. She told each person in our family what to order, since she knew what we all liked. We started with the calamari appetizer, which is quite unique... More

Always great food, from salads to sandwiches, and full blown dinners. Charming atmosphere just south of Broad Ripple. You can get your sports on in the separated bar, and you can bring the family in the restaurant seating. Private room for hire. Outside deck for summer seating. Great drinks specials, with a large list of craft beers and martinis.

This local restaurant has a very comfortable atmosphere. The food was very good and serving size was excellent. The fish tacos and pizza was particularly good. The wine pour was very generous. The service was friendly and we were never pushed along. Parking can be a bit challenging. There was a private party being held and the room looked to... More

We attended a rehearsal dinner here and it was a great venue. They had a private room for us, a private bar, a projector and screen. There were about 50 people in attendance. There was room to mingle and the food was great. There were 3 options for guests (steak, salmon, and chicken) and all were great. Try the cinnamon... More

We are fairly budget-minded when feeding our five mouths. And we have a variety of tastes. Our expectations were surpassed with the value for the money that the Mother's Day brunch gave us. All of our hosts were very personable. Prime Rib and honey ham carving stations. Many great breakfast items, pastries, and a wide variety of desserts, cakes, candies,... More

The place was about 1/3 full when we arrived for lunch at 11:30 - but got very busy as time went on. By Noon it was packed. But throughout we had excellent service...with just the right amount of attention (not too little or too much). Our sandwiches and sides were great, especially my turkey burger. One mark of good service:... More

Beyond the great food and drinks, we had SO much fun with the staff. Our server, Josh, not only gave great menu recommendations and really knew craft beer... but made it fun to be there! We'll be back when we're in Indy again!

My wife and I went here for the first time last night and were talking about the great meal we had this morning. The calamari is a Mediterranean inspired dish and the best I've ever had. We split and entree (peppercorn ribeye) and our waitress literally split everything into two plates. Usually when you split, most places just give you... More

Best club sandwich in Indy, and the taco salad was fabulous. Don't know why the prior reviewer had a negative experience with staff - we've always had solid service. We like the bar atmosphere a lot better than the restaurant. Ideally, the outdoor area is best and has heaters when appropriate.
