Will be back as soon as I can, not just a unique and welcoming atmosphere but offers fresh brews and fantastic dishes to match. My friend and I sampled just the poutine and some drinks quickly coming to full faith in the dinner menu even tho we weren't late enough for it! The poutine was perfect tho for the price one might wish for more like the donation box on Sundays. Can't fault my flight at all! What a great option of two ingredient style cocktails to add in especially treating those enjoying beer in a reformed service. My friend's house made sangria was just like the water turned to wine ages ago, the best stuff. We regretted not being hungry enough to try the authentic sausage sampler, leaves many reasons to come back to increase our faith, friendly service, plenty of space, easy parking unlike most downtown spots, and that menu all good variety and things I want to try.

Loved this place! We took scooters from downtown. Our server and his trainee were great. Both the food and the beer were top notch. I had the Hefeweizen, fried cauliflower, and a lamb burger that was delicious. The ladies had cookie sandwiches for dessert wit fresh baked cookies and I’m pretty sure Graeter’s ice cream inside. They clearly have a great chef and brew crew.

We chose entrées that were marked as a St Joseph favorite! Food was good. Beer was tasty. Only drawback was that our main dishes were served before our appetizers were only half eaten. In other words, we felt a little rushed.

Nice enough place although note that the menu on their website is out of date. As a vegetarian I had been looking forward to having the vegetarian Wellington so was really disappointed to discover that they had changed their menu without updating their website. The vegetarian dish I had was tasty enough but it was supposed to be a pie and just had a thin layer of pastry on the top. mostly I was just eating a bowl of peas, green beans and sweetcorn so it wasnt very filling and I was glad to have some of my party's fries to fill up. Staff were friendly and everyone was enjoying the quiz so the atmosphere was good, just a shame about the dish i had

We have eaten at St. Joseph several times and it gets worse each time. This restaurant strikes me as being on the cusp of either fixing all the problems or giving up and failing. That's shame because they have a great location and historic building with a terrific story. I have had several of the beers here and they are very good. If this were being rated as a brew pub it would score well. Unfortunately, the restaurant is a disaster that is dragging the business down. I t started with our entering the restaurant on a Sunday afternoon. We were behind another group and we all stood looking around for the hostess. While we waited the wait staff studiously avoided making eye contact with us, seating us, greeting us or explaining where the hostess could be. The restaurant was not busy and there did not seem to be a reason we were ignored. When the hostess appeared she greeted no one, grabbed menus, and led each group to a table. We felt like we were imposing on her cigarette break. The service was utterly disinterested. There was no show of appreciation for our business, explanation of menu items, or anything other than order taking. I ordered a beer and saw it placed on the bar for service. Our server walked past it a number of times and finally, after ten minutes, did a double take and realized it was for her table. It was served without what should have been at least a recognition that she had left it warming on the bar. As bad as the service was the kitchen's work was horrible. The best anyone at the table could say about their food was "mediocre". I had the bison meatloaf, which is a slice of bread covered with mashed potatoes, a slice of meatloaf, gravy and fried egg. The bread and mashed potato combination is odd. There is a reason that menus never feature a mashed potato sandwich. The mashed potatoes were ice cold. I do not mean "cool" or "tepid", I mean they came out of the refrigerator and were slapped on the bread. The meatloaf and gravy were tasty though neither was hot but the fried egg was absolutely burned on the bottom to the point that the egg could not be cut with a steak knife. Let me say that again, the cooks, anyone doing quality control and a server served a completely and obviously inedible egg that a cook with any self-respect on his or her first day would throw away. This lack of pride in the product will destroy what could be, and once was, a very good restaurant. If you are thirsty for a good beer and some sports on TV, head right over. If you are going out to eat, do yourself a favor and pass on St. Joseph.

We have been here a couple of times for lunch. Once with just a few of us and once as a larger group. The service has always been great and there is a nice selection of food for lunch. The dinner menu looks even better, but we haven't made it there for dinner yet, but will. We enjoy the ambience in an old church and it is just a very nice overall eating experience. Will return.

We had reservations for a large party on a Saturday night. The buidling and atmosphere were very interesting and beautiful. The service was excellent, the beers were great, I loved having a flight of beers to try a variety of different brews. The entire party had a really great experience, the staff, the food, the service. First time we had been there, but it certainly won't be the last!

Good brewpub in an old church. (Nice to get out of the rain) Decent looking menu and beer list. We had Ceasar salad and the buffalo chicken salad. Started with the fried Brussel's sprouts leaves appetizer. All were pretty good, except the blue cheese in the buffalo chicken salad didn't taste very "blue", they probably should look for a better quality source of that stuff. Also, no iceberg lettuce -- a plus!

This restaurant has potential, but food was mediocre at best. The meat loaf was barely warm but burned on the surface. The egg on the top was overcooked and very crispy on the edges. The pizza was also overcooked with very tough crust. The waitress was very nice and knowledgeable and the beer was good. The front stairs should have a railing.

Four of us had had an excellent lunch Memorial Day. Great atmosphere, excellent brew selection and our sandwiches and fries were great. Service was a tad slow and our server was less than engaging but it was not a problem. We were visiting Indy for the race so doubtful we will go back in the near future but would recommend for a neat lunch experience.

What an atmosphere! Meeting friends for dinner was a great and tasty experience for all of us. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was beautiful. Not being beer drinkers, I can't attest for the brewery part. Our server was friendly but a little slow with refill drinks but we didn't care too much as we weren't in a hurry. We'll go back when we are in Indy.

Great place for beer and food! It’s in a renovated church so the atmosphere is awesome. Their Kölsch was excellent. I had the “adult grilled cheese” (great name) and it was huge and delicious. Parking was tricky, but once you find a spot you’re good. Highly recommend!

Lunch was great, potatoe soup, turkey melt and frittata lunch special. Setting is very nice. Sneaking Decon, Popemeal Stout, Absolution Amber were all good selections. Now on our list when back in Indy

Good beer and a variety of menu options - we ordered the lamb burger and German sausage plate with two of the pub's own brews - all excellent! Both indoor and outdoor seating available, and dogs are welcome on the outdoor patio. This is an old Catholic church that has been converted into a brew pub, but still retains the look of an old church inside and out (though the pews are removed and replaced with a bar and tables). What a creative way to repurpose an old structure and pay honor to its history. Worth a stop for good food/beer and to see the decor and ambience of this unique building.

This is probably the most unique brewery I have been in, the location in an old church is really cool. Large beer selection, the ones that I had were all good and the pretzels were great too. Definitely recommend stopping here if you are in Indy!
