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

Binkley's has a very nice private room complete with bar for special occasions. The wait staff was attentive and efficient. Table linens and candles were furnished. We chose 3 entrees and they were delicious! My favorite was coffee encrusted steak but the Bourbon flavored pork chops and a pasta dish were wonderful, too!!

Binkley's in Indianapolis is one of the best restaurants in town. Really loved by the locals. Nice atmosphere with fireside dining inside or eat outside in the open air. The food is great and the service is impeccable. Try their pizza or strawberry chicken salad. Of course, nothing beats the Binkley Burger. Classy dining room with an attached bar. Great... More

I've eaten at Binkley's several times (including their Easter brunch) and they never disappoint. They are one of the few restaurants in Broad Ripple that accept reservations and we had a group of 12. It was no problem for them and this was on a Friday night. They have a large selection of craft brews and a really large menu... More

Binkley's is an excellent, moderately-priced neighborhood cafe. I ordered the Hoosier favorite - pork tenderloin - and it was cooked to perfection. Amazing how many restaurants get this class sandwich wrong! Pleasant atmosphere - no stress. highly recommend.
