Gastro Pub
After years of working Downtown Indianapolis, business partners Jake Burgess and Toby Shelton decided 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, Klipsch Music Center, and I-69, FoxGardin Kitchen Ale is a perfect spot to sneak away, while still being close to everything! FoxGardin Kitchen & Ale is a 21 and over establishment.

Food value poor. Little food for a lot of money. We come here every few weeks and the same guy waits on us and asks if it’s out first time? Not sure we will be back. Food just too expensive and service mediocre really.

AMAZING! My husband got the best pork chop he has had in his life. Drop dead delish mashed potatoes as well. My Chilean sea bass was divine. The peanut butter mousse pie and brownie were just so so. The atmosphere was a bit cramped and they hurried us along a bit. The server looked over his shoulder each times we talked to him like he had other things to do. Otherwise a great meal.

Food was great, but very loud! Was in the enclosed outdoor setting and had a table of loud women drinking, and talking soooo loud. Couldn't enjoy it. Just wanted to eat and leave.

Always our date night favorite! We love the rotating menu & the delicious cocktails. They usually have live music indoors on the weekend, but outdoor (heated) areas for when we prefer less background noise. Love it here.

I was grateful for an outdoor option during this weird pandemic season. It was nice to sit on the roof patio and overlook town. The service was fantastic, and the food was very yummy too. The music was out of the 80s/90s which makes my GenX/Millenial heart happy :) I'd definitely come back again! Thanks for a fun date night.

We celebrated our one year anniversary in the place where we first met. It was nice to bring back the memories in one of our favorite places, especially, as this has been such a downer of a year otherwise.

They were very nice about us being late ( I called before we were due there, car problems )
Super crowded and noisy as they were celebrating their 5 year anniversary with a band and specials. No social distancing and no one had masks on. Very disappointing. Restaurants next on the same street were social distancing with only every other table occupied.

Such a cool place. Unique tastes, & aesthetically pleasing — just the place to be on a Friday night. Don’t miss out on stopping by here, it’ll be the #1 place of service and top notch menu items. Have heard a lot about this place, and was more impressed than I thought I’d be. Will be returning ASAP.

Food and staff were great!
The spiced corn bread was amazing. Steaks were cooked just as ordered.

Atmosphere was a slight let down in back room. Really noisy. Had a table or 2 that was crowded in and people and staff that walked by kept bumping into my back

This would not keep me from going back.

Friendly, knowledgeable server. Definitely order the Bone Marrow Fries. Amazing!
The Manhattan was perfectly made. Ordered the Filet and Chicken Stir Fry. Delicious. Generous portions. Fish Tacos were excellent as well per my fellow diner.
Well worth the price and trip to Fortville. Will definitely be returning.

Food was excellent and service very good. The place is quaint. We dined outside and the sun at sunset was a little annoying, not unbearable. Beer selection is OK, not exceptional for place with "Ale" in its name. Wine list is much better. Now for the price: a shared appetizer, 2 entrees, 2 beers and a glass of wine for $130 was excessive. The food is excellent, but not a good match for the price.

At times it was so loud that I couldn't hear the person across the table from me. Loud screaming women is something you can't control, But although the food was excellent, I just can't bare sitting on terrible heavy elevated furniture at small tables with rude screaming women all around. Your restaurant has really fine wait staff(up stairs on Friday night). And although the food was super good the place is a mess; old, crowded and loud with poor acoustics. From an owners perspective things my be really good but from the perspective of two older people it ain't that much fun.

Always a great experience at FoxGardin!! We were celebrating another family milestone as we frequently do there. They (again) took a group photo and framed it for us which is so thoughtful. The food is always amazing no matter what we order! Highly recommend!
