Had go show Indy's oldest bar to visitors from out of town. Did a midday weekend stop for drinks and apps. Prompt, friendly service. Ok food. Enjoyed the atmosphere and did a quick, self-guided tour of the building. Great atmosphere. Would like to visit one evening when they have the blues bands.

For a $5 cover we were able to enjoy Nigel Mack & the Blues Attack. What a great band - very talented - they played mostly original material and were very entertaining. The Inn is a big place as they hosted a second band in another part of the building at the same time. Otherwise it's a bar that serves... More

I came here for lunch and had a great time. The food was very goo. I had BBQ wings which I would highly recommend. The atmosphere would be much better at night, but you still got a good idea for it around lunch time.

We always go to the Slippery Noodle Inn every time we're in Indi. It's a fun place with good food and good service. I love the cheesy tots and to my surprise, the quesadilla was quite good as well.

We didn't stay at the inn. We visited the Slippery Noodle Blues Bar. The band was awesome and the atmosphere great. We had a few drinks, listened to some good blues and walked around. Fun night!

The waitress was horrible and rude. Waited 15 minutes before actually getting our 1st round. Then she did not come back to check on us or see if we wanted some food (which we did but never got a chance to order). Finally we stopped another waitress so we could try to order another round, which never came. So when... More

Sit in the old bar to get a feel for what it would have been like! Great stop for a cold beer and an appetizer. Parking across the street is cheap and easy access to the rest of downtown. Would come back for dinner and to hear the blues! Lots of good bands listed.

This is the place to check out if you love live Blues music. I was there on a night where they were very busy. Service was pretty slow and it was apparent they were not prepared for that many patrons on a Wednesday night. This was an experience to be had by all at least once if you ever find... More

Great staff and drinks! A busy place for a Sunday night with an awesome band that played everything from Eric Clapton to the Eagles! Highly recommend. Who could pass up the name Slippery Noodle!?

We went to the Slippery Noodle based on another Trip Advisor member's recommendation. so glad that we checked Trip Advisor. We went on a Friday night. They had two great Blues bands! We were so impressed! The Slippery Noodle has a lot of history. It's Indiana's oldest bar, built in 1850.

Thank Susan B
