Food was fantastic (sausage amazing)! Great beer selection. Trendy decor, great space, nice location. Server was efficient but rather sterile. They forgot we were celebrating a birthday😢

Limited menu but great burgers and sides! Decent selection of beers on tap but really extensive variety of can beers.

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.

Seated right away with a reservation, which was great. They were busy, but not crazy.

Food came quickly and was delicious.

Good food. Great meatball appetizer! Good beer selection. Patio is great. Nice tables and it’s covered. The service is very good an friendly. Inside can be crowded at times. Suggest reservations if you’re going on the weekend.

Extremely poor service. We were done with our meal by the time we received mustard that had been requested when our food arrived. The restaurant had maybe 4 tables.

We got the giant meatball, Kruger burger and Bacon burger. All were super good! Cool atmosphere. Nice beer selection. A bit loud, but we were ok with it. We’ll definitely be back. :-)

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.

Ate before a show so was in a bit of a hurry. We were in and out quickly. Seemed a bit loud for the hour we were eating so couldn’t have much of a conversation.

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.

First time visit and it was fantastic! Yummy burgers, fries and margaritas! And our waiter was great! Only complaint was the noise level. The restaurant wasn’t full but the music was so loud we had a hard time hearing each other across the table.

What an interesting new addition to Indy. Started out with the sauerkraut balls, which were flavorful and smooth. the Gin and Juice was a good blend for a cocktail. My wife and I split the Chicken Parm sandwich and also the Burger. Be prepared to use napkins. Service is fantastic. Noise level is loud if a full house. Otherwise it is a must try. We'll go back for sure.

Krueger's Tavern is a great addition to the neighborhood. The food is awesome -- literally everything on the menu (especially the shareable meatball and tomato petso jar appetizers and all the burgers and salads) got rave reviews from our group of 10. They were very accommodating of the reservation we made for our large group, and our server nailed it. She was professional, friendly, and super-service oriented.

The only ding -- we knocked a star off "Ambiance" because it was so loud, it was hard to hear anyone speaking more than a couple people down the table, but the place has great energy and is a lot of fun.

Krueger's should definitely be on your list to check out.

It was OK. Seems like the food is commodity nothing special. The double patty burgers were poor.

Drinks were also poor.

For a new place, it was very good! I really enjoyed the veggie burger and my friend enjoyed the chicken BLT salad. We shared the polenta side dish, which was both interesting/different and delicious! Great service and a nice atmosphere! I look forward to coming back when the patio is open, as it looks like a great setting for enjoying a beer and dinner outside.
