We happened on this great restaurant by accident. Great service. Wonderful food. Loved the atmosphere since we are outside. A great Sunday afternoon!

My Herb Chicken was superb, my wife's spinach mushroom panini was quite good. Server was charming and the price was fair.

Not a lot of parking but it was worth walking a block or two. Very good food and service. There was a variety of dishes on the menu. Meat loaf, salads, sandwiches and meals. I would go back again!

Went in for dinner after six months and barely recognized the place. Service was iffy and the food was pedestrian. Looks like it will be a long time between meals.

Went there for brunch and had one of the best omelettes I have had in a long time! I had not been for years but was glad to be back. We had a big dinner there and used the back room five years ago when we got married and wanted to entertain out of town guests. All my experiences here... More

First time dining here yesterday. It was Part of Chow Down Midtown, where you can kind of 'sample' certain menu items at a lower cost. This place had a fabulous menu for this (and in general) for food. Reasonable prices. They have a lot of different cocktails and a full bar and a good list of wine and beer. Seasonal... More

We have eaten here several times! Even had our rehearsal dinner here years ago. Highly recommend this place. The menu offers a decent amount of choices and most items we've had were delicious.

We waited for quite a while to be seated, and when someone FINALLY came they said that bar side was sit "wherever" After that the service was excellent - My wife's salad was enjoyable and my burger was great - the waitress was very helpful recommending the extra's to make the meal EXCELLENT.

Friends had picked this spot to accommodate my schedule at nearby Butler University. They hadn't been in a while, and I'd never been. Reservations were needed for 5:30 on a Saturday, on the edge of the popular Broad Ripple district. The bar feels cramped, while the dining room is somewhat open and airy - a good place for conversation and... More

I'm not sure why I underestimated them based on a handful of drive-bys on the way to and from visiting our son at nearby Butler University, but I officially apologize, as they really did a fine job! All entrees were served piping hot from the kitchen, with the added touch of separately plating a shared burger and side dish without... More
