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. ***

    Was excited to try this place. Drove 45 minutes to try it. Waitress was very friendly, but we really never saw her after we received our drinks. Fish tacos were average and too much lettuce.

    It was a little noisy on the patio but the service was excellent as well as the food. I was pleasantly surprised as the menu was varied and lots of choices. I had the tenderloin and you could tell it was homemade. So tasty. Fries were excellent also. I’ll be coming back for another 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.

    Terrible atmosphere, it looked like there may have been other better places to sit but we were seated in a dark (not in a cool way dark, but more of a creepy old attic way dark) upstairs room that felt like my grandma’s old apartment, with a ton of drunk people shoved into a tiny space ( much like grandma’s at Christmas). However the food was AMAZING! It made up for the terrible atmosphere. I would definitely try again but ask to sit in one of the other spaces…

    This was the 1st time we had an upstairs table. The stairs are steep and hard for older people to navigate. Also, the tables and chairs are bar height being again a challenge for older people. Our server did an outstanding job, however didn't disclose the price of the specials. Yes, we should have asked instead of being surprised at a $50.00 steak. I think this will be a place only for lunch in the future. Would I recommend this place to a friend ? Yes with the suggestion that they request a table on the ground floor and ask the prices of specials.

    The Beef Manhattan is amazing. Comfort food at its best! My husband had the Calamari as an appetizer. He orders Calamari at every restaurant we go to. He considers himself to be a connoisseur. He says Fox Gardin has the absolute best Calamari.

    Food is good ambience is not. Service was great. Still too noisy, a common complaint, and if you get stuck in the back room you have to stare into the kitchen all night as it is not screened off. In fact the back room looks like an after thought. To expensive to be treated as an after thought

    We had a great meal. I do have one issue, no fault to the restaurant and they handled it very well. But we had a table next to us that was very loud. The waitress gave us a dessert on the house. It was not expected and we were very grateful for the kindness. We were very pleased with the service and food. She was very kind and attentive. The restaurant handled everything very professionally and with great customer service. :)

    FoxGardin absolutely nails home-cooked feelings with contemporary dishes! Can’t beat the atmosphere and energy here. Frequently live music by great local artists. The staff is friendly and once they know your name, they know you! It’s absolutely the best place in town and deserves its #52 spot in the nation according to Yelp! FoxGardin is something special. It’s my go-to spot!

    We have been regulars for several years and often bring friends who haven't yet enjoyed the experience. Our waitress, Heather, was phenomenal. The 14 oz blackened strip steak was unfortunately thin and very fatty which we've not experienced before so we're chalking it up to scarcity of supply. Everything else ordered by our table of four was really good - as expected. We were on the indoor patio but I believe the acoustics are pretty poor just about everywhere in the restaurant which is very unfortunate since it is normally crowded at dinner hour. Heather surprised us with a dessert on the house and invited us to join the restaurant's anniversary celebration on June 4 - a great way to end the evening! See you on the 4th!

    I've had too many fabulous meals at Fox Gardin to give up on them. But our last lunch there was not good. It took forever to get our meals and they were lukewarm when they arrived. The food was also over salted.

    Food was great (as always). Love the bone marrow fries as an appetizer!! Shrimp pasta was excellent and the sea bass very well done (moist and so tasty!) Love the live music 🔥. Back room was loud but there was a larger, more boisterous crowd next to us. Normally a good intimate spot though. Definitely will be back 🙂
