Nine Irish is awesome! We are regular customers that have gone on three of their Irieland trips as well as regular Friday night customers in the pub. The food is great and the Craic is awesome!!

My wife and I had a great, fast and flavorful meal on the patio. Our server, Brandi was prompt and efficient. A Dublin Salad made with fresh greens, feta and red onion dressed with a raspberry vinaigrette was as good as it sounds. I opted for fish tacos (rather than the traditional fish and chips that I saw being served... More

Whether a quick lunch or late dinner, the food, beverages, and entertainment are reliably superb. Special orders are not a problem, and on many occasions, first timers as well as establish patrons are greeted by the very owners of NIB. This is a frequent stop with friends, the atmosphere likens itself to an authentic pub in Kinsale among others. Whether... More

This is one of a handful of restaurants that offers outdoor seating in this area. The one by campus is often the place they employees and some older students congregate to celebrate, commiserate, cheer. I recommend the appetizers, the Reuben and fish and chips along with any of the variety of beers. Large groups are accommodated by seating in the... More

This was our third visit and we will keep coming back. The Irish menu is different from almost any other restaurant. Fun atmosphere, too.

My daughter and I stopped in here for a quick dinner before shopping for college. She'd been here before and she highly recommended the Fish in a Bag entree so that is what I ordered. I was slightly wary because I'm from Florida where the fish is hours fresh. Fish in the midwest can be sketchy. But this WAS indeed... More

Everyone enjoyed their food and the portions were large (two people shared a single fish & chips). I particularly enjoyed the soda bread. The Stout beef stew could have used a stronger Stout flavor but if you like pot roast, you'd like this. The mashed potatoes were excellent. The facility itself was charming. Lots of dark wood & Irish music.... More

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.
