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. ***

    Sarah our waitress was VERY nice, however she was single handed serving all the tables and bartending so we had to wait for her to get with us for drinks, and ordering. She needs backup to help for the best customer experience.

    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.

    Top knotch cocktails in a cozy environment. Crab rangoon dip and best damn parm were great! Menu can be a little overwhelming and our server was trying to help by explaining but it was too much. I’d recommend taking a look at the menu ahead of time and having a couple meals in mind.

    Our dinner was delicious; my husband and I started with the Bang Bang Shrimp and both had the Pork Ribeye. The rating is based on our seating. We normally sit up front in the bar area. In addition, we always make a reservation. For this visit, we were seated in the back of the restaurant, practically in the kitchen. During our entire dinner, we were forced to listen to the sounds and chatter from the kitchen and the constant traffic of servers. At times, we couldn't hear each other. It was Valentine's Day, and we felt like we had been crammed into a vacant spot just to get as many guests in as possible.

    My husband and I have never had anything at Foxgardin that we didn't absolutely love. You seriously can't go wrong with any choice at this homey, eclectic and inviting restaurant. The staff is friendly and efficient, and the different dining areas accommodate personal preferences from cozy to rooftop. Because the restaurant has gained in popularity, it is wise to make a reservation, particularly on the weekends. When we have guests visit, Foxgardin is a must.

    Steak was under cooked, but had good flavor, bone marrow fries were soggy and cold, but the flavor was good. Our server was outstanding, which really saved the evening. Unfortunately, we will not be back…☹️

    When we walked in we thought, this can't be the place. It looked like any other bar. We were then escorted to the reserved section. We both agreed that it looked like a man cave. But there we were, let's give it a shot. Turns out the service was fantastic (thanks Dan) and the food was delicious. So glad we went, and we both agree we will go back.
