We stopped here for lunch. We hadn't been here before and wanted to give it a try. I ordered the Fish Tacos and my wife had a salad. I thought the tacos were great, my wife said the salad was OK. The service was indifferent. I rated it a 4 based on the tacos.

Great variety on the menu. Lunch specials are great. Fish tacos (grilled) had just the right balance of flavors. The pulled pork Mac and cheese was delicious .

This was our first visit. We went there after a Clowes event. Finding parking around 345 PM was easy. When we were seated we had our first waitress of the evening. For this being a beer joint he either didn't want to be helpful or just wasn't helpful so I didn't order a beer. I was surprised. Apparently, his shift... More

We pulled into the back parking lot off Kessler Blvd. and went in the back entrance. The reception desk is right there. Our waiter Josh had some really good suggestions since this was our first visit. We were at Holiday Park not to far away and then going to tour Butler University also close by. We started with the pretzel... More

I can say the best part of this spot was the Buffalo Trace Manhattan for $5.00 each. If we take it one step further do try the loaded tater tots and the pretzel twists, but avoid the pizza. A great place for Apps and drinks before having dinner down the street.

I just had an excellent meal at Binkley's. It has a nice quiet atmosphere with great service. I tried one of the many choices of martinis and it was very good. I am not a normal martini drinker but the server suggested one that I might like. The food was served a proper temperature and it had very good flavor.... More

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.
