This really is a bar - not a restrauant and allows smoking. Beer is cold and service is good. Have good local bands on some nights. If the smoking doesn't bother you, give it a try.

This is a BAR! It's a large and roomie open space with wrap-around seating, so you can chat with folks across from you. They call it a "Biker Bar," because motorcyclists like to stop here for a cold one, and a snack. If you are not a rider, don't let that "steer" you away! It's a friendly place with all... More

What a wonderful place. Friendly service, reasonable prices, tremendous live music on Sundays and above all people from all walks of life simply having a great time. There is not one thing about this place that I would change. I have been here 5 times to listen to live music on Sundays and it has been fantastic every time.

Doug and Teressa the owners, are a blast to party with. Great bands & above average drinks are always a great combination. Mindy & Abby are always great behind the bar. Don't let the bikes scare you.

We had the Hoosier as one of the stops on our Poker Run. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. We had one of their pizzas and it was delicious! Reasoneble drinks

If you always wanted to go to a biker bar but were afraid... go to this one. You will quickly find out... WE ARE ALL HERE TO HAVE FUN. Doug (the owner) says, "WE HAVE A NO FIGHT POLICY", so there has never been a fight. We all want to be invited back & we all are welcome any time.... More

As far as roadside biker bars go this place was big: huge bar to sit at, 3 pool tables, and a small stage for a band where they have live music Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. Good service. Cold beer. I'll be back.
