Big Mistake! This was the darkest, dirtiest, restaurant I've visited in a long time. Way overdue for a makeover, but absolutely filthy - floors, seats, restrooms - you name it. The staff, bless them, was tremendous, to the point that I wanted to ask them why they didn't find better jobs. The food was marginal from many aspects.

We were seated to the left of the door in area in front of bar. The host/busser was killing it. Both of them are seasoned veterans and it shows. Just loved this place. Will be back.

We were seated very quickly and greeted by our waitress who really made our dining experience what it was. They’re very large menu had plenty of options for our whole party. We settled on the nacho for an appetizer and they were a huge hit! They’re corn chowder was a show stopper! Between the food, and waitress alone, we will by all means be back.

We enjoyed delicious potato skins and a wonderful fresh salad. Service ok. Like everyplace they may be a bit short staffed. Very nice lunch sized portions and super reasonable prices

No, the decor isn’t fabulous. No, the food isn’t gourmet. It’s just such a friendly place with reasonably priced, very good, down-home food. There is a warm vibe, due to the friendly, loyal staff that’s been there for years and the regulars they serve. I think their Saturday prime rib dinner is great, always served exactly to the temperature I prefer. Salads are fresh, sweet potato fries are wonderful. Their fried green tomatoes are the bomb! Highly recommend for this type of casual dining.

I had a 6 ounce ribeye with loaded mashed potatoes and asparagus. My friend had the pork tenderloin breaded sandwich with fries. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I had a side salad also that came with my meal. A lot of food. Great value for your money. Excellent tasting. The wait staff was very helpful and nice

We were coming in from put of town and in a rush to get to the Colts game, and we were in and out in a little over an hour. Tried the fried pickles, since they seem to be an Indianapolis thing; tasty but very salty. Fun to try. Everyone had typical pub fare: club melt, chicken club salads, burgers, fries or tater tots. They had a good selection on the menu, but we needed to be quick. It all came out hot and at the same time. Beers were reasonably priced, and it was an easy drive to the stadium from there. Great stop for what we needed!

Food was hot and tasted great! Blueberry Mule was fabulous!! Had a reservation and table was ready as soon as we arrived and loved that they didn’t make us wait until everyone in our party arrived before seating us! Our server, Taylor, was very friendly and very efficient even though she was pretty much the only one working the whole bar area. Would definitely return again!

We come to this restaurant every time we’re in town. We sat down and ordered drinks and when the server came back to take our food order, I simply asked if the restaurant provided bread. I was asking this because I’m a Type 1 diabetic and my sugar was starting to drop so I was trying to see if I needed to pull something out of my purse real quick to munch on while waiting for our dinners. The girl got such an attitude back and was like “Yeah we have bread!” She was so rude and we honestly didn’t want to ask for anything at all because I was almost in tears. I’ve never received such an attitude from a server in my life. I asked one question and never expected to be treated like crap. She ended up bringing the bread out 15 or so minutes later and I just stayed silent. The only reason I’m saying yes to recommending this place is because everyone else was really nice here and the food was great.
