After years of working Downtown Indianapolis, business partners Jake Burgess and Toby Shelton decided to "Come Home" and open an establishment that exuded the style of service and quality of food they had become accustomed to. FoxGardin is tucked away on quaint Main Street in Fortville. Minutes to Geist, Fishers, Kliptch Music Center, and I-69, FoxGardin Kitchen & Ale is a perfect spot to sneak away to, while still being close to everything! FoxGardin Kitchen & Ale is a 21 and over establishment.

As always another great meal at FoxGardin. We ate later on a Sunday night. The crowd had thinned a bit but the service will still spot on. They had red drum over risotto as the special and we both ordered and enjoyed it immensely. This is definitely my go to place.

It was a birthday dinner which was noted in the reservation. While most restaurants of this caliber will acknowledge special celebrations, this one did not.

Great Meal! We chose Foxgardin prior to a concert. Everything worked perfectly to get our party of 7 in & out.

Really good food and outstanding service. There were 3 in our party. One got a dinner salad and another the fish sandwich. Both were excellent. My choice was the summer ribs, fries and cole slaw. The spiciness of the ribs was perfectly complemented by the cole slaw and the fries were perfect! It was well worth the drive.

FoxGardin is my go to place for dinner. The food is always excellent and Jane's pies are to die for. It is great to see they are expanding. Oh and the service staff is extremely attentive whether it's dinner on Saturday night or lunch on a Tuesday. Can't go wrong.

Our waitress was amazing. Food was delicious. If there was anything negative, one person ordered the spinach blackberry salad. We all felt it was lacking in toppings for a salad meal.

We sat on the rooftop garden. Not much of a garden. Food was great and service too. A little pricey.

The service was great And the food was too but it’s really obnoxious being sat upstairs while there’s a large party. This happens every time Ive make a reservation. That area is too small for the noise level. I could hardly hear the person sitting next to me due to the party being so loud.

This is the 2nd time I've been to this restaurant. The food was awesome, the wait staff was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect! Now, it's not a place for a quiet evening with dinner served, but it's fun, the music was great and the prices were reasonable. There are several options as far as their menu goes and the bar was well equipped.

My wife and I went for our anniversary and sat upstairs in The Lounge. While downstairs can be a bit loud, the Lounge provides for an intimate dining experience without losing the fun engagement with fellow diners. The menus were personalized (thanks to OpenTable allowing me to add that detail to our reservation) and we were treated to a cookie dessert as well. Oh, yeah, and the food was as amazing as always. For having the tenderloin and cheesesteak, there is nothing normal about them. Great portions and flavors that are always an amazing experience.

It was not worth all the hype. Our food was just ok, but the service was so horrible that I probably would't return. It took 3 hours to have dinner because we never knew where our server was. She would literally jut walk away in the middle of our order and say she would be right back....which meant no less than 20 minutes. This happened frequently and she was just rude. Maybe it was because we got sat upstairs, but it was awful. The food looked and tasted like it was leftovers that she had nuked in the microwave. Never brought us more drinks and only refilled one water glass in THREE HOURS. The only thing that made it bearable was the people I was with and the other patrons upstairs because it became a running joke between us all about how bad it was. Hope they get it figured out. Super cute place and location.

Something just not right. Good food but the normal staff just not as friendly. Maybe bad night but we go on Mondays so not as busy. Not crazy about the dirty rice. Love the risotto which they don’t have now. Not sure our fav anymore

Our party came to listen to the musician.
Very hard to hear the wait staff, but we came to listen to the band so that’s to be understood.
Thank you for a very fine evening.

Went for lunch on husband's birthday. Food is GREAT here. Owned by chef who keeps the menu fresh and diverse. Good wine selection. Staff is engaging. Best fresh cut fries around. Offered a complimentary warm cookie with ice cream for birthday that was delicious.

Our party of 5 arrived late; the restaurant was able to adjust our reservation; we were seated in the bar area: which is noisy so if you want a quiet dining area ; just make that request. We all had different entrees, which were all prepared well. The menu has a good variety which is supplemented by several daily specials.

We were in the back garden or nearest kitchen. The ambiance wasn’t desirable and took out what I love most. Next time, we will make sure to request upstairs or in main area. Amazing food, service, and drinks!

Our first visit - and it will be the first of many. Had the good luck to be seated at the upstairs bar and had an incredible time with Heather, Erin, and crew. They gave off this amazing and welcoming vibe - and it felt like we've known each other for years.
The food was outstanding, the cocktails rockin', and the whole evening, outstanding.
You'll see me weekly while I'm in Indy for the summer, for sure. And I'll be getting giftcards for everyone I know so they can experience this gem in Fortville too.

We celebrated our 5th anniversary here & it was our first visit. The food was excellent. We both had the bronzed red drum & it did not disappoint. The staff was friendly & attentive. We were given a lovely complimentary dessert. There is no doubt that we will return again and again.

Friendly waitress and staff. The cocktails were on the strong side but I would rather them be strong than weak. Prices are a little high. Food tastes great. Need some more vegetarian options.
