“Bar Food with Poor Service”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We went in a large group, so I understand if the server was not up to the task. It took a good 20 minutes for her to show up to get drink orders. And then when we tried to order food, the server went from unfriendly to sour, to downright rude. We actually had to get up and leave before the food order was completed. Have never been back since.

“Fun and tasty!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We split our dinner between 2 restaurants and this was our 2nd stop. Earlier we split a sandwich at the Claddagh, and this time we split a Blackened Tilapia Salad, fresh tilapia, blackened it with special spices, served over a bed of fresh lettuce with
black bean mango relish. Topped with Feta cheese,
tomato, cucumber and candied pecans. We had the Ginger
Vinaigrette dressing on the side along with another sweeter dressing on the side. We sat outside, upstairs with a gentle breeze, it was nearly perfect!

“Fabulous Food!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Dined on T-bone steak and my partner had the BBQ Pork Chops with Beans and Rice. Both dishes were fabulous! One of the better tasting steaks I have had in a long time! The service was great! Within walking distance to our hotel. We will return! A great place for couples or friends night out!

“A Great Place to Get Away for a Hoosier Tenderloin Sandwich!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

The Bourbon Street Distillery is on a nice corner just off the Downtown Indianapolis area, and features third floor, outdoor seating with a nice view. we have been here several times, and each time the food quality is tops. The Hoosier Tenderloin, an Indiana tradition, is a huge piece of Pork loin, twice as big as the oversized bun, and perfectly cooked (grilled or breaded). They also feature a Shrimp Po' Boy sandwich that was hard to handle, but a terrific treat. All the menu items are way above average in taste and quality, yet the prices are well within the realm of "reasonable", or better. Bourbon Street Distillery is a really good place to get a meal before or after a sporting event downtown Indy. They support Public Television and Radio, which is how we got into the place in the first place. I cannot reccomend this place any higher. It gets a 5-star rating for a casual dining experience! You have to try this when in Indy.

“Fun place, great food”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

What a fun home town bar and grill. The food was great and lot's of it. Eclectic crowd. Seating outside on the street or upstairs or eat in the bar with the locals watching the game.
