Baked Orange Roughy
Very sweet and delicate in flavor, this popular fish is baked in lemon garlic butter and seasoned with lemon pepper.
BBQ Pork Loin
Lean, grilled pork tenderloin warmed in our homemade teriyaki BBQ sauce served on a Kaiser roll.
Great service and the food was good for German food.
Took our family of seven to celebrate a milestone birthday and they wouldn’t let us sit together due to coronavirus. WE ARE THE SAME FAMILY. Then they put us in the hallway by the bar area which felt like we were in a traffic pattern. Spent $300 for dinner and would have been just as happy going to Culver’s. Waiter was great but the hostess was useless and could care less about where we were seated. If I could have known they wouldn’t let us sit together as a family I would have gone somewhere else. Hamilton County has lots of restaurants and I don’t have to pay extra for parking.
IF I ever go again, we will make sure they seat us in the restaurant and not in the hallway. But I’d rather spend my money elsewhere.
Food was delicious and Jen, our waitress, was terrific! We had a lot of fun!
Always a great meal and service at The Rathskeller.
The waitress was fantastic and made the food and atmosphere even better
Been here many times for many different occasions. Love it here but they are suffering from Covid slow business which results in everyone being a little out of step. Overall still nice.
Food was outstanding. Jane, our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, and her service was excellent. My first time at the Rathskeller, but will very definitely be going back.
Our service was very good. Food was very good. The food was pricey I thought BUT it was a special occasion so we splurged.
Birthday celebration with excellent food and good service.
The beer selection and pours are generous. I love the history of the building, and the location on Mass Ave. It is worth a visit whether you live in Indy or are visiting. The menu is a bit limited, but for german food in Indianapolis this is one of the only places to go.
Food was delicious! Waitress and hostess were so sweet and helpful! Amazing ambiance!
Lovely lunch for a family get together. They also have a nice kids menu.
Top German restaurant, and it looks awesome as well!
Great Place to visit for fun events, grab a bite in the bar or a German dish in the dinning room. Very, Very cool building but the best part is the service and the great food! Definitely a must visit venue in Indianapolis. The outside entertainment area is lots of fun!
Great service and excellent food. Highly recommend!
We went for my dad and I’s birthdays. The waitress was really great and the food was wonderful!!
We ate in the bar where like the dinning room the atmosphere is pure old Germany; if you like that sort of thing, there is no place better. Best German food in town but the menu expands far beyond. The staff is very friendly and informative.
Food was great! Our server took good care of us. Tables were spaced well too. My wife and I came 3 years ago for our first anniversary and it was great. Came back for our 3rd and was very happy
Service is why we go. Also the best place in the city for a German draft beer off the tap, great selection. Food is always good and representative of German-type fare, and even if it wasn't it would still be the top German restaurant in the area.
Food was overpriced. I feel like we were paying the rent for a big, empty building. I doubt we will return. The food was just ok and was $100 for 3 people. Just ok. I cannot brag on anything. The service and the old building was wonderful.
Dual birthday party. Very nice!
We celebrated our 33rd anniversary. My wife is German so Rat was a great idea. The food was good but a bit bland at times. The strudel was very good. Service was good also. Great to have some German beer.
Birthday for my daughter
We had Jen as our waitress and she was amazing! We will definitely be back to see her!
Food was good and the swervice from the waitress was beyond expectations
Great beer selection, amazing food, and awesome service.
Great Food! Our server was very attentive and pleasant.
The food is fantastic, make room for the bread pudding.
Generous portions of meals were served. From the appetizer selection, the chick && jalapeño poppers were delicious and so were the sauerkraut meatballs. The entrees were very tasty.
Good German food and atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone who likes German food.
Just ok. The building was pretty neat but the food was just ok and we were paraded through a service station and a bunch of employees on break in the way to our table.
Delightful experience from start to finish. We had a few late RSVPs, and the hostess was more than happy to accommodate us without any hassle. Nearby parking was easily found by everyone in our party, despite Mass Ave’s closure to traffic and parking. The food was excellent, competing for Indy’s best in several categories, but at a very reasonable price during Devour Downtown.
We frequently dine at the Rathskeller and are never disappointed in the food or the service. It's one of our favorite places to have celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or just get together with friends.
Went for a Saturday night dinner during restaurant week. The three course meal was good and plenty of food There was a band in the beer garden and it looked quite crowded. According to my wife drunken young women were in the ladies room and it was completely trashed. It seems that they need to decide, nice restaurant with controlled beer garden or party time bar. I will be a lot more selective on future visits.
Good service. Staff is pleasant. Good food. Nice ambience. Parking is easy to find. Always fun.
The service and food was great. I will certainly recommend for gathering with friends or date night.
Great service and help with many German dishes. We had to return an overcooked steak and replace another entree, but overall we had a pleasant experience on a Saturday.
Noisy fun atmosphere, great beer and drink options.
