Stopped here while visiting family in Indianapolis. Great beers, food and atmosphere. The pulled pork nachos and pulled pork sandwich were amazing! I had the cream ale which was good as well. My wife had a mahi mahi sandwich which was good as well. Very good menu overall from others comments in our group. They had a good kids menu... More

Our server, Bradley, was awesome. We had a large group of about 10 adults and 10 kids. He was very understanding, patient, and efficient. Food was tasty and the menu offered food for the kids as well as more refined options for the adults. It's hard to find a nice place for our large friend gatherings but this placed nailed... More

My wife and I went out with another couple. I had the fish tacos, they were very good. My wife had the steak sandwich and couldn't even cut it with a knife. To her credit, the waitress did offer another entree but my said the flavor was very good so she would just eat what she could. The waitress ended... More

We all enjoyed our food a lot . Appetizer Flatbread was large enough for a meal. Service was excellent!

Found the Best Restaurant in Indianapolis!!! This is a hidden diamond. My wife had the Hickory Salmon. I had the Thick cut bone in Pork Chop. Salad and roasted vegetable medley was perfect balance for our meals. Dessert - excellent chocolate lava cake with ice cream and whipped cream. A nice bottle of Malbec from Argentina also enjoyed. All this... More

I love Broad Ripple and Fire by The Monon is one the places that contributed the appeal! Quaint, outside patio and good food with craft beer.

Felt very well taken care of by the hostessing and wait staff. Low noise in back dining area- easy to have conversation. Chairs are a little uncomfortable. Some food seemed bland- couldn't distinguish garlic in the Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Fish & Chips and Sweet Potato Fries didn't have much flavor. Fried foods were more oil sodden than crisp. Fish Tacos... More

Had lunch here with friends, not very busy at Noon for a Saturday, not very noisy either. We ordered the flatbread. The pull-pork BBQ flatbread was delicious. I also had the Carnivorous flatbread, loved the pull-pork but was not a fan of the pepperoni. The service was great!
