Locally owned and operated, TAVERN ON SOUTH is a casual, yet sophisticated restaurant and bar located in the shadow of Lucas Oil Stadium and just a short walk from Victory Field as well as the Convention Center and downtown business district. Our menu is focused on seasonally inspired selections utilizing fresh, quality ingredients. Our well stocked bars feature regional craft beers on draft making TAVERN ON SOUTH a favorite spot for a refreshing beverage.



Our two-story, brick building built in 1910 features a warm, inviting interior that includes a bar and outdoor dining on both levels. The second level deck that looks out to the downtown skyline is the best seat in Indy, perfect for catching some sun over the lunch hour or dining with your friends on a beautiful Indiana evening. Plus, we have plenty of complimentary on-site parking!!!
We look forward to seeing you soon!!!

At first I was disappointed we were taken upstairs, in less nice, more casual setting. It did not appear full downstairs and we had this reservation for NYE. I wanted to see outside from our table, but our waitress was very good, and it ended up being very enjoyable. Good food.

Took over 30 minutes to get our food. Steak was cold. Took another 10 minutes to get a steak knife. Mashed potato cold. Salad didn’t have all the ingredients in it that were listed on the menu

Only complaints are that parking can be a problem when busy and the 2nd floor was not accessible to me when my group was there. I was told there was no elevator access which surprised me. I had to leave.

The service and location are great. It was our 3rd or 4th visit, and the food wasn't quite as good. The salmon was VERY dry and flavorless. Pizzas, meatloaf and brownie dessert were good.

Tavern on South never disappoints. Nothing too spectacular, but always good food and service in a very pleasant atmosphere. A large space means that the wait is never unmanageable and reservations are honored.
