After years of working Downtown Indianapolis, Executive Chef/Owner Jake Burgess decided to come home and open an establishment that delivered the style of service and quality of food he had become accustomed to. FoxGardin is tucked away on quaint Main Street in Fortville.

Minutes to Geist, Fishers, Klipsch Music Center, and I-69, and only 25-30 from downtown Indy, FoxGardin Kitchen & Ale is a perfect spot to sneak away, while still being close to everything!

***FoxGardin Kitchen & Ale is a 21+ establishment. ***

    This was our first time visiting downtown Fortville and FoxGardin. Dan did an excellent job serving us. The bone marrow fries were amazing. I was not sure about the first bite, but ended up finishing them off. Had the pork chop for the main course, which was also excellent.

    The food was excellent . The waitress forgot to bring our appetizer and gave us a free dessert we thought was very kind. We will definitely come back here to eat.

    Our server, Tammy, was AMAZING! She helped me get my husband to our table, was attentive to our needs, knew the menu, offered great suggestions and was one of the best servers we’ve ever had! She helped me get my husband to our car as he was experiencing some mobility issues leaving. She totally deserved the 30% tip I left her (should of left her more!) and we will be back and will request her!

    First off, our server, Dave, did an excellent job. My dining partner ordered a Potabellla mushroom sandwich and French fries. The fries were lukewarm, not a deal breaker; and the sandwich was excellent. I ordered the Salisbury steak. I would rate it average at best. Mostly because it presented and tasted much like reworked meatloaf. That said, I really like Foxgardin and eat there occasionally but last night was slightly less than their usual standard. I do recommend their beef Manhattan which is one of my favorites.

    Sat upstairs like we have several times. Bar tender seemed new or inexperienced and when we asked for a list of draft beers she said, “We don’t have draft beers upstairs.” Our friends had never been.so they went to ask for bottled beer but I told the waitress that we have had draft from downstairs brought up in the past without any issue. Then she changed her tone and said she could get draft. Then they ran out of the draft beer we ordered. Then they ran out of the special after we ordered. Then they couldn’t accommodate a similar order. When the food arrived the brussel sprouts were burnt. No condiments. We asked her for mustard three times. After 15 minutes she came over to say they had no one to bring mustard upstairs. It was a slow night. Plenty of open seats upstairs and we were surprised to see several open downstairs when we left. We’ve been twice in the past few weeks. We’ll plan to go elsewhere for a while. May try again some time. Hopefully we will have a better experience next time. My advice is to

    We came to FoxGardin to celebrate our 29th anniversary!! The food was amazing!!!! The New York Strip and Filet were cooked to perfection and melted in our mouths. The mashed potatoes were outstanding and the broccoli and asparagus were so good! We shared homemade apple pie for dessert. It was absolutely delicious! Sam, our server, was so nice and very knowledgable. We had a great evening and will definitely be back!

    Very good place to eat, I really liked that they had vegetarian options and a "beyond meat" burger option. Food was all prepared very well and I would not hesitate to go here again. We sat out on the enclosed, A/C patio and that was a great option. Food prices seemed about right for today's economy - beer is a little high ($7.50 for an American Pint (16oz) but so is everything these days. Overall it's a great option and I'm sure we'll be back at some point.

    First time at Fox Gardin. Six guests celebrating a birthday. Service slow. Handhelds we’re good. Fries were cold - had sat for awhile. Two salads ordered. They were a mess. Both had been prepared incorrectly. One salad arrived as everyone else was finishing their meals. Server apologized. Felt more like opening day of new restaurant instead of established well known establishment. Our first visit and probably last. Will not add Fox Gardin to our frequent dining choices.

    We have a monthly girls night out and decided to go here for something different. It had been a while since I was there last. This place is just a gem. The street corn dip, bone marrow fries, and Yucatán shrimp appetizers were mind blowing delicious. The beer cheese soup added to the delicious. EVERYTHING was phenomenal. Chicken Marsala was fantastic and according to my friend who had it “the best meal of her life.” I got the strip special and it was glorious. Strawberry pie was as good as it gets. We heard the owner’s mom makes it and it for sure tasted like a pie “mom” would make. Great service, great food, great company. Thanks!

    We love Fox Gardin. Been coming since it opened and visit their other restaurants often. I recommend upstairs for a date or small group! Medium-well steak is more like a medium steak there compared to most restaurants with mostly pink, so keep that in mind. All sides are always a hit. We miss the half chicken from a while back hoping it will return. We’ll be back a lot more.

    Everything we ate was really good. Shrimp appetizer, Salisbury steak, burger, cornbread. Our server also did a great job. The space is cramped, and our table was too small to hold our plates and drinks, but overall it was a great meal.

    I would like to highly recommend that unless there is a party of 8 to please not sit people at the big square table in the main dining room. It's highly difficult to enjoy conversations with our friends/family with that weird table set up when there is a party of 4 or 5.

    FoxGardin is one of my very favorite restaurants in the area, and yesterday's meal was no exception. My only complaint was that our server seemed to be in a bit of a rush, despite the fact that the restaurant was only about 15-20% full. He didn't explain things, just offered to, which was a little off-putting. That being said, the Ruby Red Mojito was DELICIOUS, and both the fish tacos and pork ribeye were perfect. Will definitely order again and recommend.
