Great location, great atmosphere, & great service. Next door to Lucas Oil Stadium & walking distance from many downtown amenities. The food is wonderful. I highly recommend the yellow fin tuna. The staff is always very personable & welcoming as well as the regulars. A must visit at least before a Colts game.

Had a business lunch with friends at the Tavern in South and was quite pleased. Wasn't really expecting much but the service and food was delicious. Definitely worth a visit if in the area.

Stopped by after GenCon. Menu had been Munchkinized. Fun. Best Caesar salad dressing I have had. Pretzel bites come with two dipping sauces and mustard. Yummy.

Service was great as the owner greeted us at the door and took us to a table. The server was quick and food came timely. The food was really good. I had the Indiana Cobb which had crunchy bacon, blue cheese crumbles and granny smith apple chunks, among other things. It was excellent. Someone else had the salmon which was... More

We ate here while attending an even at Lucas Oil Stadium. The salads were wonderful, staff friendly, and environment comfortable. There is a good selection of beers and you won't get any flack for wanting a sample or two or three. Service was also quick allowing our timely return to our function.

I was surprised that it was crowded as the noise couldn't be heard from the outside. Wished I wasn't so tired when I visited as I enjoyed the ambiance.

Entry area is rather small. There were already 3 or 4 people ahead of us. Due to small area, there was no way to stand in line.... More

The restaurant is located across from Lucas Oil Stadium. It is not your typical pub food. Scott our waiter showed us the specialities on the menu. I had the Filet Meatloaf. It's not you grandma's meatloaf! It was made with filet mignon, pistachios and cheddar cheeses. It was served with fresh sautéed green beans and whipped cheddar mashed potatoes. My... More
