Great service. Good beer. It seemed really loud when we arrived, but we didn’t have any trouble talking/hearing at our table!
My blue burger was delicious. Everyone liked their fries.
The asparagus was a little tough and the salad was shy on the toppings (which was the original appeal) but overall the food was delicious!

Great location and cool decor. Went during winter, so the space was very crowded. Had to wiggle around many tables and the patrons at the bar. When the weather is nice, may have more space with the open patio. Menu is limited, however they knock it out of park with their options!

The first time we visited, it was great and the service was good. We went on Saturday night with a group of 9 people for my husbands birthday. Our food was cold when it FINALLY came out, service was unbelievably slow and the waitress brought us the wrong drinks and charged us incorrectly. She wanted my friend to take someone else’s check which cost more than what she ordered so she didn’t have to go back and rering her actual check up. The waitress told us the manager would come speak to us, never happened. Unfortunately, a bad experience.

I enjoyed the food and cocktails. We had a party of 9 and the restaurant was about 1/3 full and the hostess sat us right by the door? I know that's picky, there were just other tables that would have been more comfortable for our party. I was a little disappointed by that. Overall it was a good place for a group or smaller.

Burgers were great. We had a 12:15am reservation and called early in the day to make sure food was served that late. We were told yes but they neglected to tell us they only have burgers and pretzels with cheese dip at that hour. It would have been nice to know in advance as some of us didn't want those two items and didn't eat.
Music was too loud. It was karaoke night and not very good.

My family celebrated my nephew's 18th birthday here so I was hoping it was a nice dinner since I choose the place. First - the food was FANTASTIC. I appreciated that very much.

Unfortunately, the service was questionable at best. The server was very sweet and attentive in some ways and totally absent in others. We watched our bottle of wine sit at the bar while every person working there walked by it at least twice without bringing it to our table. We finally asked the hostess who was sweet enough to bring it over. My husband's drink was wrong despite her repeating it back to us. My brother's beer didn't even get there until after he was halfway through his meal.

It's such a great atmosphere and the food is awesome so I hope they can work on the service.

Also, I did mention in my reservation that we were there for a birthday and we also told our server. Some type of acknowlegement to make it fun for him was not expected, but would have gone a long way.

Had a nice dinner with friends here. Food was tasty and our waitress kept the drinks flowing. One member of our party ordered a burger with bacon & after a few bites realized there was no bacon. They immediately made him a new one. Friendly staff.

So we asked about the rotating beer selections. Never have I ever in my life had a rotating beer be in a can. When we asked the server, he acted like it was common knowledge 🙄 They seemed to be understaffed or just overwhelmed in general. I’ll think twice before returning.

The food was very good And the service was great. Unfortunately all the low tables are fixed and cannot be put together for larger groups. We had to sit at the high tables which are very uncomfortable for an individual that has had knee replacement surgery. It is difficult to climb in and out of high tables- if someone has an injury or is not tall. When your legs go numb it’s difficult to enjoy the rest of the evening. I wish more restaurants to be cognizant of that.

Not what I was expecting and will be towards the bottom of my “let’s give that one a second try” list. The server started out strong, but failed quickly. Yes, it was a Saturday night and most tables ended up being full, but waiting 13 minutes to find our server to get our check and then another 12 to get him back after he took our cards followed by another 6-7 minutes for him to fix running the right cards against the right bill. Unfortunate.

The food was average, at best. The fries were stone cold which could have been due to the servers lengthy delays. When they did bring out the hot fries, they were good. I was done with my burger by then, but they were a Tasty’s desert. The bun on the burger crumbles because it was a few days non-fresh. Nothing remarkable.

The only remarks are that the server needs some remedial training.

We did a business team lunch outing at Kruegers. Our server, Chance, was very good. We had several vegetarians in our group, and they really enjoyed the Spicy Burger (replaced beef patties with veggie patties) and the roasted asparagus.

Only downer was they did not have any of their famous sauerkraut balls available.

Chicken Parm sandwich is one of the best sandwiches in Indy, hands down. Pesto jar is awesome too as an app.

Overall, our visit to Krueger's was positive. The staff seemed upbeat and energetic, polite and friendly. Service was a little slow, but it was a packed Saturday night, so that was expected. I wish the menu had more vegetarian and/or pescatarian options. There seemed to be only a veggie burger, a couple of salads, and some sides. We sat outside and the noise level was pretty high. It was even louder inside. I like the atmosphere and drink choices are pretty good. If I come back, it won't be for the food. I ordered the veggie burger and it was fine, nothing special. Add more options for people who don't eat meat, and I'd be back in a heartbeat.

They have a bit of work to do with service.... lots of confusion on our order and mistakes. On a very hot evening, they had the door open and flies were everywhere. We loved our food but it’s not the place to go for a conversation whatsoever...: the music was over the top loud. I want to love the place but not sure it’s worth the pain at this point.

The bar was outstanding. The vibe and decor is very cool, and the food blew us away. We bot the crispy chicken BLT salad and the bacon burger with fries. Highly recommended. The one downer is they only had 8 beers on draft, and a ton of canned beer options. I like draft better than canned.
