After 20+ years Smees has a new owner. The same menu and good bar food. But we’re going to miss ol Timmy!

We selected this place because we didn't want a chain restaurant during our trip to Indy. It was good, and we enjoyed our lunch. The sweet potato fries were the winner. The pub burger was good, and my husband also liked the fries.

Smees has a warm, welcoming, cozy feel to it. Plenty of regulars as you hear the waitresses greet them by name. This is our go to place for tenderloins. Hand pounded and breaded these are as good as it gets. Plenty of home made sides...More

Smees had a great variety of food choices. We tried many different ones and drank plenty of beers. A nice cozy atmosphere. They played 70s music which is nice to hear once in awhile. If you are in the area I I would encourage you...More

The chicken stir fry tasted good but swam w/o much rice. The salad had that preservative taste. Passable until I found that small piece of plastic packaging. Service good. We may give it another try.
