Pub
Famous for Award-Winning Pizzas like the Cream & Crimson with Alfredo sauce, oven-roasted Red Potatoes, Bacon, Cheddar and Gorgonzola cheeses. Featuring scratch-made Onofiro's Meatballs simmered in a pork-based tomato sauce following a family recipe handed down through the generations. Sink your teeth into one of their hand-breaded entrees such as a 10 oz. Tenderloin or a generous portion of buttermilk marinated Chicken Tenders.

Enjoy the big game on their big-screen T.V.s while you sit at the Bar with 21 Beer & Wines on tap and over 100 more in bottles & cans (Yes, they have a pair of ADA accessible spots at the bar). An eclectic selection of music is piped into the three spacious dining rooms, one of which can be closed off to create a Party Room for special events. When the weather is nice, enjoy the breeze on their cozy Patio outside.

    Aver's Public House was great for my son's birthday lunch. The food was good. Our server was very attentive. And they were flexible with our family coming from out of town who was running a bit late. We'll be back for sure.

    Went here for lunch and everyone left full and satisfied. Great selection of beers on tap and in cans. Hoosier poutine was incredible and I highly recommend cheese bread for the table.

    The food is not great and the menu is very limited. The waitstaff was not knowledgeable at all about the menu items. Overall a very disappointing dinner

    They must have been short on staff, barely any tables filled and still took 40 min to get our sandwiches. Service was not good.

    Overall we were very happy with our meal for 9 people. Service was great by our waitress and very efficient. She gave our grandkids packets to entertain them. Appetizers, wine, beer and pizza very good. We enjoyed the experience as it was our first time there.

    Aver’s Public House was an excellent restaurant. The food was great. I had the Super Chicken Salad. Very good. The rest of the group had various pasta dishes and the pizza. The pizza was really good.

    Pretty ordinary. Sandwiches ok. Very nice service. Friendly staff. Pizza carry out is big business. No atmosphere that’s worth calling atmosphere!

    Visiting our son at IU and wanted to have a dinner with him and his friends. We were able to get a table when everything else was booked solid. It was not busy at all and not sure why. We had nachos and cheese bread for appetizers and specialty pizzas afterwards. All were very good. They had a nice beer selection and the specialty cocktails were a hot too. My son had the pizza before, but was always delivered. I think he will be back and this will be a place we return to when back in Bloomington.
