Gastro Pub
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.

Great high quality food and excellent service. One of our favorite restaurants! The ribeye special rivaled St. Elmo’s.

Overall the food and experience was outstanding. I’ve seen other posts talk about how loud the place is and it was somewhat loud but that’s one of the things that makes FoxGardin cool - as everyone is having a good time.

We really enjoyed our dining experience! The filets we ordered were outstanding! My only complaint would be that the second floor has only the bar stool seating which is very uncomfortable to shorter patrons!

It was our anniversary, and our first time in FoxGardin. Our food AND SERVICE was phenomenal! Mike was great! We will definitely be back. Yes, it is loud, but it is a fun place! The food is rather expensive but worth every penny! You get what you pay for! I think the only thing that should be included with an entree is bread. Why charge extra? Overall, an amazing place!

Food was decent not overly impressive. Marinara too sweet in the marinara goat cheese appetizer. Mashed potatoes were subpar, filet was good, do not get the creamy spicy crab as an accompaniment. Very little crab. Too busy to get decent service. Upstairs in the whisky room just bartenders serving tables not staffed appropriately. Overall decent but nothing overly impressive.

This was our 4th time at Fox Gardin and every visit has been outstanding. We have had Mike taking care of us each of the four times. His knowledge of the menu has never failed us and he makes the visit even more enjoyable. We go early because it gets quite lively later on and even though we don't mind the noise, we find it easier at our age to carry on a conversation with friends when it's less crowded. All in all, one of our favorite places to go with friends and family.

This is my FAVORITE place to dine... I don’t come too often but I’ve never had a poor experience and the food is always amazing. Absolute best dish that I recommend is pork ribeye, gotta do the goat cheese marinara for the app, oh and GOTTA do the soft cookie (I know the pies are a cool thing and all but seriously that cookie makes me melt). And can I also say Michael is the best server ever? We are always sat with him (and I’ve never even requested that but need to going forward).. and he is just so genuinely friendly, it just makes the whole trip so much better!

Food was good, setting was great. We were seated immediately. Service was a bit slow, but it was a packed house on a Friday night. It was a quaint place, but hard to carry on a conversation at our table due to the noise level in the room.

We have been to FoxGardin on two previous occasions; however, we will not make the effort to return. There many great restaurant choices; and unfortunately, FoxGardin has let their experience decline and is no longer our “go to” favorite.

The gentleman who manned the front door was not pleasant, seemed distracted, and processed us on to a young girl who seated us.

At 6:30p, there was no seating on the first floor and we were taken to the rooftop. Thankfully, the sun was still out which made the cool 60 degree weather tolerable. What would they have done if it were inclement weather? Why take more reservations than you can accommodate and/or ask for a preference of indoor or outdoor so the customer can choose.

My husband had the chicken schnitzel which was bland and slightly over cooked. Brussel sprouts that were the side were mushy and covered in a strange tasting sauce. I had $31 drum which was just ok. Overall, so disappointing. The only bright spot was the waitress who was upbeat and friendly.

The food and the service were very good, but it was unacceptably cold in the restaurant. We asked for the fan above our table to be turned down, but we were told it couldn't be adjusted. We felt frozen by the time we were finished.

Food here is outstanding. Not a huge menu but that's fine with me, I prefer it that way. Cocktails are great, Mainstreet Manhattan is my favorite. I would love to go back just for Calamari and drinks. Also, they gave us a free dessert for our anniversary, I thought that was a nice touch.

This was our second time at FoxGardin. We were seated in the bar area unlike our last visit. The food was very good however if you're trying to have a conversation during dinner you might want to request a table in the back room or upstairs.

Despite the singer and the music that made conversation next o impossible, the food and the ambiance is worth the drive from Indianapolis. Not trying to cover all bases with a huge menu,, it offers just a good selection of items.
