I love going to this pub--many good beers to choose from and the food is good pub food. Some of the best fish and chips around. Loud, so sometimes difficult to talk. Only downside is that it's always crowded and hard to get tables for more than 4 at a time. Might be the most popular place in town.

Each year when I attend the Big Ten Grad Expo I try to dine here. The food is great, and it is a fun atmosphere. There are flat panels for the sports fans. I highly recommend dining here!

Ok, the food isn't awesome but this is a nice, fun place to go for a meal. Portions are huge. I can't imagine anyone finishing the fish and chips. Good bar scene and pretty broad set of beer.

This was a nice place to meet up with colleagues. We ate a few appetizers and then each ordered a dinner dish. It's a fun atmosphere that reminds you of being in Ireland. Food was good. It's a fun, laid back place to meet up.

Great Irish Pub at 119 Howard Ave (at N River Road). Live music, nice outdoor patio, and great food. Tiger Mike's Fish & Chips was excellent. Good selection of beers.

The irish setting is perfect. The irish drinks are amazing. Food is great. They even serve a great burger if you have that one guest that likes american food only. Perfect place to celebrate with friends.

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

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.
