Binkley's Kitchen & Bar
Get it delivered
Had a reservation but they took us to a table in between 2 other tables sharing a bench seating situation when there were other tables open. Asked to sit in bar, long wait for anyone to come ask a drink order, shrimp in shrimp taco was cold, waiter brought the check without asking if we would like anything else.
Love coming to Binkley's - have a choice of an active bar with lots of people or choose the dining area that is quieter and family-friendly. The new owners are making Binkley's a choice spot for us!
Very slow service, related to slow food prep
I like the neighborhood feel of Binkley's and the menu offers good choices. The food is good but the service not so good. They were busy and service was slow as usual.. The employees are very nice and welcoming which helps.
Good neighborhood spot. Food not gourmet but consistently good. With more of us going to plant based diets, they have lots of good options
We reserved for a Valentine's dinner and Binkley's did not disappoint. I had the black and blue salad and a chocolate martini. My husband had fish and chips, one of his favorite meals away from home. Even though we sat near the fireplace, which was cozy, my husband complained a few times of a draft from the front door. The menu has changed over the years since we first dined there, but we still find the place appealing and would dine there again.
Food was bad and overcooked.
Birthday great place to celebrate before the show
Bad service, and not good food. I think they were under staffed
The truffle oil French fries as an appetizer were good and the turkey burger was very delicious and moist. But the chicken pesto tortellini was horrible the chicken was very stale and rubbery and the pasta was hard and under cook. Horrible avoid that dish! Ask the server for attention and was told “ya’ sometimes it’s like that” didn’t see them again until they brought the check. 1st bad experience I’ve ever had there.
Brooklyn our server was great. Started with a couple Caesar Salads then Chicken Fingers,the 10 oz Sirloin, and Legendary PORK TENDERLOIN sandwich They were all fantastic. A couple Blind Owl Pilsners and Cielo Pinot Grigio made for a wonderful night.Next time we are in Indianapolis we will be back. Thank you!
Great service and food. Had the Pesto Tortellini. It was fabuloys.
Service was very slow. Had to do reminders to get first drinks delivered. And later to get food delivered. People at table were so fun, we had a great time. Will go back.
Everything was nice. The waitress wasn’t overly friendly but she got the job done.
It was ok
New management needs to upgrade the dining room to a little more if a white table cloth restaurant and upgrade the menu.
I have friends that won’t go there because the dining room is uncomfortable and menu too limited.
Bar area is fine.
Good luck to the new owner.
Binkley's never disappoints!
After searching for and booking a reservation for lunch on New Year’s Day, we were very surprised and very disappointed to arrive at the restaurant and discover it was CLOSED. (Even updated the reservation a couple days in advance.) Obv no one checking online reservations, because i never got a call or message advising they would not be open that day. My “review” is not accurate because we never got any food, experience “ambience” or service, etc. Rating is based on experience of going to the trouble of making a reservation, showing up on time, and restaurant being closed, and OpenTable does not have a ZERO star option for rating review. We were then stuck with trying to find a place at lunchtime on a holiday. Not professional. Seriously, WTF?!
Great food! Reasonable prices. Great table service. Free parking next door. Love this place!
It was good. Took awhile to get our table but it was NYE so lots of people there. Love their Cosmos!!!!
A neighborhood gem. The bar and restaurant were full. Wait staff pleasant and efficient. Slightly slow at the bar - needed a 2nd bartender. Binkley's used to be one of the go-to places but it fell off our list. With new ownership, we will be back again soon!
We had made a reservation and were pleased that we were seated next to the fireplace. Service was excellent. We were a party of 4 and everyone was quite satisfied with their meals.
Waited quite some time to get waited on. No toilet paper in bathroom.
On way to show at Clowes. Didn’t want fast food; didn’t have time for expensive me. Binkley’s fills the bill.
Waiter was inattentive and we never received our appetizer. He did remove the charge from our bill.
Binkley's has slipped since my visit several months ago. Last night we took guests with us for dinner who had never been there. Admittedly it didn't help that there was a group of at least twenty people in the center of the dining room. They were having a great, loud time yelling back and forth along the long bunch of pulled-together tables. Why wen't they seated in the empty meeting room - who knows? So much went wrong: our reserved table was ready, but it took a very long time for a server to arrive. Drinks were delivered with no problem, but then a LONG time for him to take our order. Only one of us wanted a salad ahead of the main meal, so the server asked "would you like it out before or with your meal?" The answer was "before please." A VERY long time went by with nothing - no bread - nothing. FINALLY a different server brought the salad. Then, less that 5 minutes later, our first server arrived with everyone's meals. Now the guest had to eat everything at once. Worse yet, most of the food (sandwiches, onion rings, mac & cheese, etc.) were just slightly warm. Plus I tried over and over to get the ketchup to come out. I finally twisted open the top and found that the attached paper seal had not been removed. We had to ask for refills of water or soda. After we were finished the server arrived with a bill, never asked about desert. And the bill was for the entire table - never asked if our two couples wanted one or two checks. There was more...but this is enough.
It took over an hour to get our food. The manager finally came over and apologized and comped our dinner. He was the only good thing about our experience.
Great food and great service. I have eaten here several times and have always enjoyed my experience. I am gluten free and my daughter is vegetarian and they have many delicious options for both.
Great dining experience! We were greeted with a smile, our server was attentive, and our food arrived quickly. The entire experience was top notch from start to finish!
Binkley's is always delicious! Such a fun environment and food that everyone will enjoy! Our wait staff was very prompt as we had told her we were off to a show at Clowes. Prompt and delicious!!!!
Binkley's always has good food and good service. Their food is very good. They recently downsized their menu and took a couple of my favorites off, but there is more than enough still to choose from.
I haven’t been here in awhile. I have always ordered their stuffed chicken and herb entree. Every time it has been delicious! Except this past visit. They changed it. Please bring your old stuffed chicken back! All 4 of us ordered this at our table, and there was hardly any stuffing in the chicken.
Yes - I have been to Binkleys many times and it is a great place to have either a business meeting or meetup with friends!
Good restaurant with good service and food. Not super busy with a nice ambience and a family friendly atmosphere.
Went with the family and sat outdoors. Our server was good and we enjoyed our dinner.
Great place - staff are very kid friendly and very nice!
Great burgers and pizza and salads
We had a great experience. The server apologized to us for what he explained as a backup in the kitchen, such that our food was a while to come out. Actually didn't seem like we waited too long for anything -- it was a good family dinner and visit so we hardly noticed at all. But good on Oliver (our server) for addressing it had it been an issue.
Breaded tenderloin was very good. Grilled tenderloin was very dry.
Good friends were in town from Florida. Great venue.
