This was our first dining stop on a recent visit to Indy. We decided to try this place out because of the good reviews. I can agree that the high praise is well deserved. The atmosphere was a step above your typical sports bar. Our waiter was very attentive and made us feel right at home. His recommendation for the special “Sloppy Joe” Burger was a good one. We ordered the Reuben, as well. Both meals were very good. He also recommended a trip across the street to watch the Indy Indians (Triple-A ball team) play at Victory Field. It was a great start to one of our best weekends in Indy yet.

Escaped a conference to the hotel bar of the JW Marriot on a Saturday afternoon (7/12/14) and had a great time due to an amazing bartender. I will definitely will be back for the great service and personality. Thanks Katy.

My husband and I stayed at jw for a little staycation. Our bartenders were great. Katy took care of us and made our experience unforgettable. We even got a card and chocolate that same night from her. I recommend this place to anyone. Locals and travelers. The pot stickers are wonderful. Fun happy staff.

As soon as I sat down at the bar (dodging a storm at the concert) I pulled out my ID. My cousin and I were ignored for several minutes. Katy finally took my beer order. I had to grab her attention a second time for a menu. This was quiet the task given I could not get any eye contact. When I asked for the menu she acted as if it was a burden. When I decided on an entree, I sat the menu aside and folded my hands. Again no eye and completely ignored by EVERY staff member. I was not being rude but very polite the whole time. I ultimately decided not to order food because of the poor service.
Katy went to the back for a few minutes and came out still chewing on her food that she ate from the back, along with another staff member. She then was hiding on the other side of the bar for a while. At this point I was eager to leave this place (not having touched my beer yet) but could not because the bartender insisted on putting down the credit card while we sat there...mmk whatever. We drank the beer, closed out, and left.
This is not my own opinion/ facts but the same opinion/ facts as the other patrons around me. I would invite the management to review the security footage to verify my information (7/25/14 at aprox. 7:45pm wearing green at the end of the bar).

Thank you for your feedback. I am very sorry you experienced this type of service level at our hotel. We always try to provide our guests with an excellent experience, and it is clear that we did not meet your expectations...or our own. Please be assured that we will be doing some additional training with the team, and I do hope you will give us a chance to regain your confidence in our service.

This is the JW Marriott sports bar. I tried several option from the menu but the Ruben the best. If you do not want to leave the hotel for a meal, this is a safe bet. As in the rest of the hotel, the staff is just outstanding.
