“Great Local spot for any meal!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Lennies has awesome food no matter what time of day. Unique breakfast entrees, especially on weekends include breakfast pizza slice topped with an egg or chicken and waffles. Lunch has great sandwiches and salads. You have to try the Bacon Turkey Melt! It is huge and wow is it tasty! Also have the best French Onion soup in town! If you like a veggie option, their roasted vegetables are the best!

“GREAT food”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Love eating here every chance I get, although it is fairly expensive. Their pizza and calzones are must-haves.

“Great place to get growler's on Sunday.”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Indiana doesn't allow liquor sales on Sunday. If you want a really good craft beer though microbrewery's are allowed to sell on Sunday because they fall under the entertainment and novelty laws (much like wineries). BBC has an amazing selection of beers. Some of my favorites are the Ruby Bloom Amber, Java Porter (seasonal), Rooftop IPA and the Big Stone Stout.

Lennie's is the restaurant portion of the brewery and always has a variety of amazing foods. Very eclectic fair including fusion pizzas and unique appetizers.

Hi Larry C.,
Thanks for taking the time to review Lennie's and Bloomington Brewing Company. It has been great being able to sell growlers for carryout on Sundays these past couple years. Glad you have taken advantage of it. We have an Imperial Black IPA coming out the last week of November. Based on your beer preferences, it sounds like something you might appreciate. We'll get the word out about an exact date soon on Facebook, Twitter and our email list. Hope you come check it out!
Sincerely,
Michael Fox

“Great casual dining. get there early”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

We always like Lennies. A varied menu. Their pizza is unique. Their stroms always tasty. We like to go there with three generations of family. Good service and it's not a big production. It is right on campus so get there early or you'll have a wait (the bar is right next door and has their great local brew and sometimes more available seating than the dining room.)
