About Binkley's Kitchen & Bar
From 1928 until the early 70s, the corner of Kessler and College was home to Binkley's Drug Store, which served the booming Broad Ripple, Forest Hills and Meridian Kessler neighborhoods. Scores of youngsters got their first fountain drink, milkshake, banana split and, yes, cough medicine at Binkley's. Years later, many of those same youngsters stopped in to buy their first baby formula, fifth anniversary card and seventh pair of Foster Grants. Now Binkley's returns to serve these same neighbors as a restaurant, bar, and meeting place. As did our namesake, we plan to have something for everyone, offering a full menu of home made appetizers, salads, pizza, sandwiches and entrées, and a huge variety of drink options. We're dedicated to once again making this little corner of the world an important part of your social life. We hope you enjoy what we've done to reclaim this building.

Binkley's Kitchen & Bar Ratings and Reviews
It’s been a year since we have eaten here but have always enjoyed the laid back atmosphere. Decided this year for an early dinner for NYE with our older daughters before they went out. Started the evening with the server spilling a carbonated drink on my husband! She said oh no, I’ll be back with a new napkin - not I’m sorry or anything. He wiped up the floor too! The rest of the night went about like that but when the bill came she was right up on us! A little disappointing in the service area but good food!
The service was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. We were a party of 7 that did not arrive at the same time but we were never ignored and never felt rushed as other members arrived. There was a nice fire in the dining area. Our dirty dishes were promptly removed as needed. Awesome experience.
We were sadly disappointed with our breakfast at Binkley's on Sunday, November 12th at 11:30 AM. My coffee was cold, the orange juice was not fresh, my daughter's biscuit and gravy was served cold and the food was was not tasty. The restaurant was even cold. The hostess seated us next to the fireplace and turned it on so the ambiance was nice once it warmed up.
So loud! That was the worst.
Asked for mojioto, don't carry mint, not a big deal.
While we sat and chatted a server, not ours, came by and began gathering up drink glasses. Glasses were not empty!!. It was just going on 10p on a Saturday, guess that was our hint to leave!!!
Food wasn't bad, but nothing memorable.
We've been exploring restaurant options in Indianapolis, near Butler University. Binkley's had a great American menu. The food was very good - better than we expected. The tilapia, salmon, and filet were all delicious. Wine portions were generous. Pricing was reasonable. A bit noisy in the main dining area due to hard surfaces. Servers were overworked on the day we visited, but maintained their professionalism and friendliness.
Waited almost 10 minutes for someone to come to the table. Rarely spoke to the server, who walked by four times before realizing and stopping to refill drinks. It wasn't busy. There were at least two other servers on the dining room side, serving a total of maybe 6 tables in the restaurant. Ordered a special that was inedible. Chicken was rubbery and tasted like it had been frozen several times. Nothing was taken off the bill. Will not be dining there again.
