Gastro Pub
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. ***

    The food and service at FoxGardin are spectacular. Everyone loved the entree they ordered and the table bread is a fantastic starter. The only issue is the noise level as we were seated in the back room. This is not enough to keep us from returning but we will request a different area in the future.

    We had a fantastic meal that included a 7 oz filet cooked perfect to temp and was one of the most tender filets I have had. The sides were fresh and seasoned well. The grouper special was to die for. The mixture of textures and spices used in the accompaniments were pleasing. The crust on the fish while keeping the flesh juicy and tender was nothing short of a magic trick. I just moved from Kentucky and found the bourbon list slightly more expensive than most places, but the handmade pies made me forget about prices. We will definitely be back for more celebrations.

    Our waitress was amazing, I can’t remember her name, but she was knowledgeable fun down to earth attentive, and provided one of the best experiences we’ve had in a very long time. Fox Garden is lucky to have her, and whoever the new chef is, is doing an amazingjob with the menu. They have some of the same amazing items with some new ones sprinkled in for a fresh menu. Our family will be returning to dine in the future.

    We (party of 5) had a great experience celebrating two birthdays. We all tried something we'd never had before and enjoyed everything! We had the fried chicken shawarma, grilled bologna, cannelloni, steelhead trout, steak & Guinness pot pie, mac & cheese, and collard greens. Everything was hot and tasted great. We sat in a great location where we could enjoy conversation. And our server Tammy was awesome! She has a great personality and is exceeded all of our expectations. The entire experience was very enjoyable and we will definitely be back.

    Our waiter, Benjamin, was very personable and engaging. He was somewhat comical and was attentive to our needs. The food was fabulous! We had the jalapeño beer cheese soup, which was wonderful! The flavor was amazing. We also had the bread platter, and the nice thing about that was “free refills.” We even got some to go. My wife had the gnocchi, and I had the smoked pork chop. The chop was huge, moist, tender, and flavorful. I dipped it in the Alabama white sauce a few times, but it frankly didn’t need a sauce. I subbed out to get the brussel sprouts instead of asparagus, and they were delicious! This was one of our more memorable dining out experiences because the food and the service were both impeccable. It’s a casual, comfort food type of establishment, and they make it a point to do everything well. We’ll definitely be back!

    FoxGardin is a forever favorite. We sat there too long, and the server was very kind - never without a drink refill or a check-in. The dessert was spectacular. My meal (pork ribeye) is one of my go to orders, and it was just a bit off. I had end cuts, and they were very fatty, and the seasoning seemed very salt heavy. Still edible but not the treat it normally is.
