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.

Really simple review today. I personally won't be back. I won't recommend this place either. The atmosphere seemed like the staff wasn't happy to be there. Everyone looked so stern. Uncomfortable eating experience. The male manager didn't smile until I was leaving. Although he did walk around looking like he was patrolling the place. From my first experience I won't... More

Recently had dinner here and while the service was great the food was quite good. I order the bourbon pork chops with mac & cheese and the roasted red potatoes. The pork was cooked quite well and the potatoes were good however the mac and cheese seemed store bought to me. Overall its a nice place with a nice atmosphere... More

The food was sooo good! You can't beat the delicious onion rings and pork tenderloin at Binkley's. I haven't had an Indiana pork tenderloin sandwich in over 20 years and the one at Binkley's was exceptional. Everyone loved their food and I will definitely go back. The bread for my sandwich was made fresh. The only down side about the... More

It was a Friday night out for me and the wife. Good menu, great service and a waiter who knew his stuff and really had a good understanding about how to promote the food on the menu. From the main course to desert a great experience in a fantastic atmosphere. Eat outside if the weather permits.

Although they have steak and seafood, I usually get a sandwich at Binkley's restaurant. Great atmosphere and outside seating area. Remodeled old pharmacy with character and a long history.

What I like about Binkley's is the neighborhood feel. It's a great place to hang out. The food is good, I had the pork tenderloin. That said, this place falls into the same trap as many others. Just obscene portions. Every meal could be shared by two folks.

Have been here several times and I have never failed to be impressed with the wait staff, the food and the ambience I know several others have mentioned the noise, but we have truly never encountered any problems! I just love this place for a casual, simple, meal...

How could this be my first visit when I grew up in Indy? Great food and service. Regular menu is great but be sure to look at the seasonal and weekly specials as well.
