I've been on a semi healthy kick lately to drop a few pounds before vacation so when my colleague wanted to drop into what initially looked like a sports bar I had assumed I was going to get just the usual sports bar wings and fried food. I was wrong. I got an awesome turkey burger and sweet potato fries.... More

The restaurant is very large with a neat atmosphere. I had the creole jambalaya it was very spicy, which like, but the salt was over the top. The server was attentive, not with low customer count I was easily served.?

We have been to Champps twice recently and enjoyed both times. The service was very good. We had a brand new waiter who did a great job - and another waiter checked on us to make sure our new waiter was doing a good job. The food was good both times. We will go back!

I was very pleased with the service I received from our servers Cassie and Joel!!! They did an excellent job for my husband's 40th birthday dinner. I was a little apprehensive due to some of the negative reviews posted. However, I still tried it for myself and I was glad I did. We had a party of 30 people and... More

The quesadilla is terrific. Very good appetizers and onion rings, fries and great desserts and ice cream.

Staying at the nearby Marriott, was recommended this by the concierge. Large noisy sports bar with masses of TV's, nice bar food and great service by Jason, they know how to do that here! Massive voice of beers, 40+ i think. Maybe not for a quiet relaxing beer, but for the right time it was great.

If you're looking for a cold beer on tap, stop here. They have 46 to choose from. Excellent service at the bar. Nice atmosphere and a nice selection of large screen televisions to watch as we had our beers.

Just stopped in for an adult beverage. Sat at the bar, which is adorned with large screen TVs. Nice draft beer selection/variety, many of which are locally brewed. Sun King Fistful of Hops Red IPA was my personal choice; craft brewed in downtown Indianapolis. Have had dinner here several times, previously, and have always enjoyed our meal. (Our son's wedding...

The service was great while we watched a few games on the TVs. Loved the variety of drinks and food for our eclectic crowd.

Many years ago, perhaps in the last century, this place was very popular and pretty good. Our Sunday night visit was shared with a pretty thin crowd. Our server was great, but the food was mixed. My Bourbon Salmon was decent, but the wife's Rosemary Chicken was bland. If this place sees the next decade, it better find its mojo.... More
