We have been here a few times and every meal is fresh and tasty. Our waitress was awesome. The Reuben, fish & chips, salads and fried pickles tasted great. Nothing too salty, ever. Good assortment of drinks. Pricing is what you would expect to pay about everywhere for a moderate meal.

We lucked out when we stopped here for lunch. We had never been to W Lafayette before and this place looked very interesting. The service was so pleasant and friendly. We had the calamari appetizer which was a change from other restaurant's versions. This has a genuine pub atmosphere.

Our family visited O'Bryan's on a summer Friday evening. As we drove by, we were expecting to wait for a table as the small parking lot and the outdoor tables were full. After being warmly greeted we saw that there was plenty of space inside the restaurant and were seated right away. The interior of O'Bryan's is very similar to... More

Let's just be honest about it, West Lafayette is a gastronomic waste land. So to find a place that serves some good bangers and mash or pot pie with a glass of Guinness or Lager is actually great. Good service, good atmosphere, good life music, good time.

Loved it. Has Harp on tap. What else is there to say. Get the sampler of 4 beers if you are unsure of what kind of beer you like. It goes from light to dark being Guiness. Its a lot of fun and the food is good too :)

We really enjoyed this restaurant! Everyone was extremely friendly from the time we walked in except our server who was OK. The other servers around use were much more friendly with their tables. Mark did not ask us about our meals even though I was hesitant about ordering the Fish in the Bag.I thought he would at least inquire as... More

We stopped by while driving through Indiana, and we loved it! The atmosphere is great - we saw at least two full bars - very authentic Irish pub feel and atmosphere. Service was very good, beer was superb, food was great, price was very reasonable. It's worth a trip to West Lafayette just to eat at Nine Brothers!

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.
