Great food. Good service. Relaxing atmosphere. I love the salads and flatbreads. It's a fun place for friends to meet or for families to dine.

My wife and enjoy having dinner here frequently. The staff is friendly and welcomes our dog with a bowl of cool water too. We sit outside on the enjoyable patio. Sometimes we just split the fish and chips because the portion is quite ample. I enjoy the rotating selection of craft beers and my wife appreciates they also have a... More

Went with my friends for our monthly eating out excursion on a Friday evening. Be prepared to park a considerable distance from the restaurant. Very small restaurant parking lot. I ordered the COOP sandwich, just okay, didnt eat the whole thing cause it just was an average sandwich. The french fries on the other hand were amazing. My daughter had... More

My sister and her husband, locals, took us here for a nice dinner after Carb Day at the track. We sat on the nice outdoor covered patio. There were some interesting burgers on the menu but I went to Fish Tacos and was not disappointed. My wife had the Fish & Chip but substituted the chip for onion rings, they... More

My family and I recently enjoyed lunch on the patio at Fire by the Monon. The patio is wonderful! Service was very friendly and fast. The restaurant has a large selection of beers and cocktails. I ordered Greuben. Which is a Grouper Reuben sandwich. The Grouper was great, but the sandwich bread was soaked in butter. So much so that... More

We were a little worried when we pulled in and there were only two cars, but they had just opened. Seated instantly and were warmly greeted by Diane at our table. Our food only took about 15 minutes to arrive. I got the Maui burger with perfectly cooked applewood-smoked bacon, a grilled pineapple slice, hot sweet chili sauce, a perfect... More

This is a very nice escape from the main drag. Food is very good, with great dirty Mac n'cheese and decent fish tacos. Very good, just short of great.

One Friday evening four adults and a two year old toddler had dinner. It was early so we had no trouble being seated. The restaurant is kid friendly so we were able to enjoy our dinner. The meals had genereous portions and were reasonably priced. My wife and I shared the breaded tenderloin. It was the size of a dinner... More

Easy to find with a decent amount of parking available right in front of the building. The staff was very friendly and even checked in after seating to make sure the room temp was okay (it was very cold out that day and we were in a back corner). They have a good mix of food options, traditional as well... More

This appears to be a typical Broad Ripple spot, but still sneaks up on you as you drive by. It really appears to be a house! It is larger than it appears and they were able to handle our group of 12 in a semi-private setting. Our service was excellent and the food was interesting and, for the most part,... More
