We have currently changed our name to ReDux. Open Table update coming soon. We are still the perfect place to wine down with good company. The menu is focused around delectable locally sourced small plates and entrees which are designed and created in our scratch kitchen. Come in and enjoy our fine food, wines from around the world and craft beers in an elegant but casual environment located at the crossroads of Hamilton County.

I don't mind spending a good amount for great food or wine. Unfortunately, this place which has now changed it's name to ReDux, is overpriced while under delivering. The ambiance is nice and has a minimalist, clean decor . The service is what you'd find at an after-the-club, wee morning hours, Denny's. The plating is beautiful, but then the first bite of food disappoints. The copious drenching of sauces, reductions, and other ingredients attempt to disguise and mask the okay-quality meats and seafood. An okay place if you want to sit at a nice bar. However, local neighborhood gem, it is not. You're better off heading down the street to old town Noblesville, Clay Terrace, or Hamilton Towne Center eateries that have better food, better service, and better value. Makes you wonder, why the name change?

Our first impression was good as we walked in, nice ambiance, comfortable seating, great wine list, friendly waiter, and the menu looked promising. Unfortunately our meals weren't that great. My husband got the filet, which was covered with a cherry reduction. It did not pair well with the steak and my jambalaya was just ok. The longer we stayed the more stuffy it felt, a place for middle aged regulars.

They are no longer called Stompin' Barley. They are now called Redux and prices seem to have approximately doubled. Sat for Dinner service on a Friday night to a completely empty room. When we opened the menu, we joined the rest of society that were all also not in this dining room.

Stompin would be more attractive to us if they would change their menu and price point. It’s a cute place but would be better served if they stopped trying to compete with 5 star restaurants. The value just isn’t there for what you get. The owners are nice but I think need to change their expectations. Adding some more variety for those who don’t feel like dropping $200.

My husband and I ate here for New Years Eve. We were greeted at the door with a complementary glass of champagne, which was very nice. They had a pre fixe menu and their regular menu. I had the scallops and my husband had the filet. Both meals were excellent. The service was superb. The owners are very nice, as is the chef. We sat at the bar after dinner and chatted with them and some locals. This is definitely a great neighborhood gem. We will definitely be back more often.

Great service. We went early so it was not busy, but we had reservations. Unbelievably quick service and an excellent wine menu. I had the salmon burger which was great, and my wife had the meatloaf. An excellent take on a dish I make quite often. The mushroom gravy was an excellent addition.

My husband & I dine out often and this restaurant is one of our favorites! The food is always delicious, the staff is always welcoming & the atmosphere is cozy and sophisticated.

Their new menu offers dishes you won’t find anyplace else. On our most recent visit, my husband ordered the Shrimp & White Bean Cassoulet and found it to be wonderfully rich and flavorful. I ordered the 3 oz. Beef Tenderloin with Cheddar Grits and it was fabulous! The steak was cooked perfectly, the grits were so creamy & delicious and the presentation was very appealing. We shared a wedge salad and took home 2 pieces of Egg Nog Cheesecake...yum!

Bravo to Chef Ginnie for the wonderful new menu and bravo to Dick & Alesia for creating a dining experience that always goes beyond great food and great service!

We love Stompin Barley and were delighted to hear that they are changing the name to Redux soon. Always concerned that the name failed to give the right impression of the sophisticated nature of the place and the food. New chef and new menu proved as good as in the past if not better! If you haven't tried it or haven't found it (hard to spot on the inside of a strip center) YOU SHOULD!!

The entrees were a hit or miss as far as quality and service. The entrees all came out
at separate times and one of the entrees was served 20 minutes after everyone else
received their food. The entree was poorly cooked and had no flavor. Another entree was rushed because
it was served lukewarm. For the price point the food did not compare to quality! Our server was
very helpful and I did not feel the poor food was her fault.

This happens to be a hidden neighborhood gem. I would not have known about it if not for my Veterinarian visits near by. Plenty of parking. Easy access for sure! Awesome to be on Open Table. We are only a mile away and feel very fortunate to have this gem so close by. Wonderful food selections. There is much for me to choose from on the menu and the wine has never disappointed. Truly love it. We ate there 2 nights ago and I just made reservations for another in a couple weeks, so we can introduce some Fishers friends to Stompin' Barley. The name made me think it was a "bar food" restaurant, but oh my no! Lovely wine glasses too :-)
