Get the carbomb wings. They are amazing. The fried pickles are the best in town. The pub chops go great with the wings!

We love this place. The food is always delicious, the service outstanding, and they have Guinness on tap. I've never had to wait, but I usually go at odd times. Highly recommend.

We went to this restaurant after a full day getting oriented at Purdue. Service was prompt and friendly. The three of us each had a fish dish - fish and chips, salmon, and fish in a bag. All three were flavorful and yummy. We then had creme Brule and the Irish bread pudding. Both were excellent, but remember Brule was... More

The food was wonderful. It was a little different but still tasted amazing. They have the typical stuff as well for those of you who are afraid to try new things. I recommend getting their Ruben or their nachos. They are on "chips" but it's really slices of fried potatoes. It's like French fries but round. I was not a... More

We had always loved this place, and they had great food. After our last experience of waiting in line for 45 minutes with a 3 year old and being "accidentally" forgotten, though we were right in front of the girl doing the seating, we have no plans of returning.

Hi Angel, I'm very sorry to hear about this, and I apologize for the poor service. Your experience is regrettable and unacceptable to us, as well. I have discussed the incident with our management and staff and we have reviewed our seating procedures to ensure it will not happen again. I also want to sincerely thank you for bringing this...

The fish and chips lunch portion will fill me up, but my wife and I split the dinner portion and we are both satisfied occasionally with room for a crème brûlée. (We split that too!) There is another Nine Irish Brothers in West Lafayette. It tends to have live music a little more often and is a bit busier being... More

The atmosphere isn't as cozy as the one in Lafayette, but the food and service is just as good. Great place to find traditional Irish fare for a very good price.

They have good food and great prices. The beer sampler is good. The live music sets the atmosphere on Friday night.

Nine Irish Brothers is an award-winning traditional Irish pub--recently named the Best Irish Pub in the State of Indiana by Yelp and Buzzfeed--with two convenient locations in Greater Lafayette, Indiana, and a third location in the heart of Massachusetts Avenue in Indianapolis. Our family-owned-and-operated restaurant serves premium Irish food and spirits and has a full bar and menu, with items ranging from salads to steak to Irish favorites such as Guinness Stew, Shepherd's Pie, and Fish & Chips. Well-behaved patrons of all ages are welcome from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., unless circumstances prohibit minors (e.g. large, rowdy bands). Nine Irish Brothers is proud to be smoke-free. We also feature live Irish entertainment on most weekend nights. We take reservations for parties of six or more people.
