Description: Nine Irish Brothers is an award-winning traditional Irish pub--recently named the Best Irish Pub in the State of Indiana by Yelp and Buzzfeed--with two convenient locations in Greater Lafayette, Indiana, and a third location in the heart of Massachusetts Avenue in Indianapolis. Our family-owned-and-operated restaurant serves premium Irish food and spirits and has a full bar and menu, with items ranging from salads to steak to Irish favorites such as Guinness Stew, Shepherd's Pie, and Fish & Chips. Well-behaved patrons of all ages are welcome from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., unless circumstances prohibit minors (e.g. large, rowdy bands). Nine Irish Brothers is proud to be smoke-free. We also feature live Irish entertainment on most weekend nights. We take reservations for parties of six or more people.

“Finally got in!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Our daughter is finishing our third year at Purdue and we finally made it through door of this restaurant. There are several eateries that are icons at Purdue and this happens to be one. We dined here the eve of Spring break week and had an early dinner before heading out. Like any good Irish restaurant the beer selection is broad with a large selection of brisket and corned beef etc. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal and commented on how tasty it was. The only complaint I had is the portion size of the sandwiches. I thought the sandwiches where on the skimpy side considering the $10 price. There was not a scrap left on the table which is unusual for my group. Just an observation. We will try it again for sure.

“Good lunch with a great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

We were visiting Purdue and wanted to grab sit down lunch at a local place. Had never seen this place before. We had a great lunch with great service. I enjoyed the fish and chips and my wife enjoyed the shepard's pie.

“REPEAT EAT”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Probably been there 20 times over the last four years. Things have not changed much, what was good remains good. My personal favorites are the fish and chips(half order is enough for me), corn beef and cabbage, and at the top of list is menu item listed as corn chowder! Wow excellent stuff. Sitting can be a problem, the benches and stools are comfy for long slow dinners, try to get a table with chairs. Also, if you are getting the corn beef, ask for the dark mustard, not the stuff they typically serve. Avoid the hamburgers, my experience has overcooked and nothing special.

“Great Irish Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

We ate there on a Saturday night. It is a great Irish pub with tons of atmosphere - very cozy. The food is typical Irish - very heavy and very, very plentiful. They have a great selection of Irish Whiskey. The only down side when we went was that it was a Saturday night, there was a live band and it was very, very loud - think rock concert loud. Not the band, mind you, but the crowd. I think this would be a fabulous place earlier in the evening or during the week, but make sure you take ear plugs if you go on the weekend. We will definitely return.

“One of my favorite places to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Nine Irish is one of my favorite restaurants in Lafayette/West Lafayette. The food and service are great. I highly recommend the lobster bisque, Dublin salad, fish and chips, the salmon burger, the pub chips, and basically everything on the menu.
