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.

We started with spinach and artichoke dip and it was delicious. Everyone at the table commented on how good the food was. I got the pork chop and that sauce was outstanding.
Great service.

Binkley’s is a great place to go casually. There is a bar area if you want to watch sports and a restaurant area for a quieter dining experience. Nicely done! My wife and daughter LOVE your Margherita Pizza. It’s fresh and nicely filled. Get the hand-tossed. I’m a burger guy. Nicely done there as well with the Brioche Bun. I liked the Home Made Tater Tots. It will be a “go to” whenever we are in town.

First time here. Decided to give this place a try as a friend and I were going to see a show at Clowes Hall afterwards. It took almost an hour to get our food after we ordered. The waitress explained that an 11 top had put there order in right before us. She was very sweet and kept coming back and telling us our food was on its way. I don't really understand why this 11 top put our sandwich and burger order that far behind. By the time we got our food, we only had ten minutes to eat to get to our play on time. I did not even get to finish my meal. What we were able to eat was good. If I am in the area again, I might give it another try.

One of our favorite spots for casual dining in Indianapolis while visiting Butler University.

We go to Binkleys frequently! A great spot before or after the Butler Bulldogs games.

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!

Never had a bad meal or bad service at Binkley's. The menu changes occasionally and the new offerings are always worth a try.

Good fish that was not dried out. Waitress was efficient but not particularly friendly.

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.
