This place has brunch til 1 on Sunday, which isn't a selling point for me, but they do have a few sandwiches on the brunch menu, fries, etc if desired. Place has several rooms so good for families. Nice outdoor area when the weather is decent. Nothing fancy, but solid menu and pretty good service. Bar has 3 TVs - I'd pick Kilroy's 2 miles away to watch sports.

First time back since they refurbished after a bad fire and it's even better. The food is a slight cut above the standard pub fare, but good and fairly priced. If you love beer, this is a good place to be. I grew up in Indianapolis and premium beer was Weidemens. Bud was super-premium. Now the area has a number of microbreweries making very fine beer and Aristocrat has a great selection. You will be comfortable and well taken care-of here. It's a lot of fun and feels like home.

I really want to love this place. However, I only like it. The staff is friendly but does not give great service - ever. The food is seldom bad. It is also seldom good- just average. Go on a Saturday night though and hear the house band. It is a great music group that does sea chanteys, celtic music and the like. They are fabulous and pack the house.
They do not take reservations. So, you may have to wait for a table. I am a regular despite only average service and food. There is an intangible something about this place that brings you back over and over again.

While in Indianapolis on business, I decided to walk along College Ave. until I found a place that looked inviting. I happened upon the delightful Aristocrat Pub and Restaurant. Happy chance. I ordered the special, grilled salmon with rice pilaf and asparagus. Paired with a local craft beer, the meal was a 5-star. The asparagus was prepared to the perfect tender-crisp, while the salmon and rice were just right - some restaurants over cook all three items - so, like Goldilocks, I emphasize here, just right. The black bean soup was bland and lukewarm, but enhanced by the sour cream and onions on the side. The server was nice and allowed me to enjoy the outdoor garden cafe without the bums' rush that I sometimes get as a single diner. For dessert, I recommend the dense, chocolate bete noire and cup of coffee. If weather permits, sit outside for the company of the birds overhead and the lovely view of trees and flowers that separate the dining from the street traffic.
