Really enjoyed dinner here. Fried goat cheese was very good. Fish and chips and whiskey steak were fantastic. Irish stew was good. Hamburger was a little too smokey for our taste. Good service. Fun atmosphere.

While at Purdue for a performance of the stunning All American Marching Band, we rendezvoused with family at this fine establishment. From the multitude of beers on tap to the many traditional Irish offerings on the menu, it's first rate, and the service outstanding. I left full, happy and ready to go back anytime. If I were to warn the... More

You won't find a more authentic Irish pub in the heart of Indiana. Beautiful bar and furnishings. They offer traditional Irish fare as well as typical bar food. Impressive whiskey selection. The best staff. Live music most Friday and Saturday nights. This is my favorite place to hang out.

I live in West Lafayette and I've been here multiple times and it never disappoints. The food and drinks are very good and the atmosphere is fun, especially weekend nights. Service is typically very good and prompt. There are times when kids can come with you (not always possible due to archaic Indiana laws) earlier in the evening so call... More

We ate here a couple of times. It was busy, but no long wait. The staff is efficient and friendly. The prime rib sandwich and pub chips were amazing. Great music, posters proclaim that it is sometimes live. Would definitely come back when next in town.

After a long trip from New York to Indiana, we enjoyed a great lunch. The staff was perfect and friendly. The restaurant plays Irish music and the bar is large

Here to send kid off at school. Great weather on the porch. Waitstaff was perfect (my main criteria at a restaurant). He accidentally brought too big of a portion of stew. Instead of saying that's OK, he took it back and brought the smaller portion. No big deal, but awkward! Food was excellent. I had the steak, son had bangers... More

I went on St. Patrick's Day at it was jammed packed. It was almost a great experience music was going, people were singing, and the food was just great. I got the Irish breakfast and I couldn't have asked for anything better. I can't wait to go back when it isn't as crowded.

Even on a very busy Friday evening, we still got excellent service, awesome food and fast drinks. Their fish and chips are amazing, so is all the other dishes we have tried on the menu! Well worth the visit!

Have just been to Ireland and had a Guinness at the brewery in Dublin. It was great but no better than at Nine Irish Brothers! Authentic Irish atmosphere and great pub food. The owner is often there and goes out of his way to make everybody feel welcomed. Parking can sometimes be a problem but worth finding a way in.

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.
