“Great spot for lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

We were at the convention center and tired of the food courts so we walked across the street and found this little gem. Our food was excellent! My husband had cheeseburger soup which really sounds gross but was out of this world! My French Dip was a little soggy so I had to cut it instead of holding it to dip. A minor hiccup in an otherwise great lineup of food.

Our server was very engaging and we told him he looked just like Robert Downey Jr...except he had red hair. He really made the visit enjoyable and we would happily return to run into "Ironman" again. Stop by if you're in downtown Indianapolis!

“Typical hotel sportsbar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Something was lacking here and I think it was the atmosphere. It's your typical nice hotel sportsbar and wasn't very crowded on a Friday night when we got to town later and needed food. The plus was the waiter gave us very good service and they had some extra large draughts for $6 which was better than small beers. Food was pricey for what it was but that's because they're downtown and it's a marriott hotel. It met our needs with it raining and we couldn't search much but id recommend the places nearby on WAshington or Meridian street.

“Quick bite to eat, menu variety”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

We always stop here at some point, for lunch or supper. Varied menu choices, mostly American comfort foods, and always delicious, especially the Chicken Salad Sandwich!

Very good service. The wings were nice and meaty. The pulled pork sliders w/ fries hit the spot. Great drink menu too.

“Better Than I Expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Hotel bars are notorious fleecers of the trouser pocket lint fodder. I expected more of the same here. We only stayed for about a half hour, but we we received great service and I was surprised that every beer wasn't $7.50 or worse.

We ordered the decadent chocolate nachos, a beer and a mixed drink. The nachos and beer were great, but the cocktail was a syrupy sweet disaster. The waiter noticed my girlfriend wasn't enjoying her drink and stepped in to comp it immediately. We didn't even have to ask (we weren't planning to).

They also had the Sunday night NFL game on the TVs and over the speakers for maximum football enjoyment.

I would also like to offer the hostess was very cheerful in the face of my accelerated inebriated sarcasm.

Not bad, Marriott hotel bar. Not bad...
