I'll be back

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... read 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

Fire by the Monon is the latest restaurant in a space that has seen many dining concepts come and go. We live very close to it and I have probably had at least one meal in each of its iterations. It's located in a low-density residential neighborhood of small bungalows repurposed as boutiques, restaurants, hair salons and other trendy establishments,... More

We met for dinner with friends and enjoy the food and conversation. Both were successful. We had the blackened fish sandwich, pork chop, and dirty macaroni and cheese. The dirty mac is Mac and cheese with pulled pork in cheddar. All the dishes were hits. The pork chop came with roasted veggies and was really delish. Service was excellent as... More

Last week we took our daughter out for her birthday to Fire by the Monon. Loved the cozy atmosphere and our server Megan took great care of us. The hot pretzel and beer cheese appetizer was very good. They had excellent craft beer selection I had the Berry salad for dinner with Salmon and it was very flavorful. Daughter had... More

I had the salmon and asparagus, very well priced for the amount and quality. Everyone loved their food as much as I did, they have an interesting take on many classic foods.

A group of us stopped here for a late lunch. On the recommendation of our waiter, Harrison we had the breaded tenderloin. He was the best waiter! The tenderloin was the best we ever had! We will definitely be back!

We always eat here when we visit our child at Butler. Excellent food and service. I love their salmon dishes and my husband loves their steak dishes. A good sign when you come back at different times through the years and it is excellent.

Nice place with superior service. All we had today were iced teas but the staff was special and accommodating. The bar was well-stocked. Thoroughly enjoyed it
