The filet steak special on Tuesday nights is a bargain and always delicious. Always enjoy our visits.

Came in for lunch with a few colleagues that are local to the area. Was told that the pork tenderloin was a must. And I have to say it was really good. And massive! one order can easily feed 2-3 people. And it was so crispy. A must try. We also had wings as a starter and they too were... More

U have eaten here solo and with my wife. The food has always been great. But as of late the clientele has changed. The last few times I have had lunch the loud language has become rougher and rougher. To the point I would no longer bring my wife. I stopped in today at lunch to see if there had... More

What a great place. Go there with friends from work every time I am in Indy. Weds nights seem to be the most fun time to go. Good prices, live music and fun hometown environment.

Food is standard bar fair but tasty, anything made with pot roast is excellent. Really nicely priced drink specials. Portions are big so come hungry.

This is a clean establishment with many choices. The food is always good with huge portions. This time I ordered a cheeseburger and it was one of the best burgers I've ever had. Hand pattied and cooked to order.

We stopped here for a business lunch because of its vicinity. It's basically a bar with a decent restaurant attached, and the atmosphere reflects such. The wait staff did a good job, but then again, I could tell they were used to the bar crowd. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals. I ordered their pot roast which is homemade... More

Whether you are going to watch a Colts game (which, this is THE best place to watch a game!!), stopping in for a cocktail after work or going to dinner (or lunch), this place ROCKS! The food is superb (the ham & swiss club is to die for!) and the pizzas are outstanding. I highly recommend this to everyone -... More
