This was not our first visit to North End, the food is consistently high quality as is the bourbon selection. Our server, Kristen, was attentive and very pleasant but was not "smothering". We enjoyed our meals; smoked turkey sandwich, puller pork platter, pulled pork sandwich and chili. For dessert we had the sugar cream pie which had a thick filling.

The brisket and sausage sandwich along with the collared greens was excellent and my wife enjoyed her ribs. For desert, we thought the apple cobbler would have been better if it had more fruit filling. Ambiance and service was very good and will return.

We both had rib tips, a Valentine’s Day special. They were wonderful. I mentioned to our waiter that they should be on the menu all the time. He said many people aren’t familiar with them. I guess they may be a cultural thing. But I still think they should be on the menu, then maybe they will be more mainstream! I always get the wonderful collards as a side. Tonight we both also got baked beans which are very good. And my boyfriend got cornbread as he always does. I love it too but I can only eat about 1/4 of the serving. We often get onion rings as an appetizer because they are so good and we weren’t disappointed tonight. And finally we celebrated the occasion with dessert. He got chocolate cake; I got pecan pie parfait for the first time. I gave my boyfriend the top scoop of ice cream for his chocolate cake and still brought home more dessert than it ate. It reminds me of Derby Pie—more chocolaty than pecan pie. But very good. Our server was Carlos. He was attentive and efficient. I always love going to North End.

Wow! First I want to give an amazing shout out to our server Kasey, she was awesome and knew her food that was great! This was a Devour Indy restaurant so we had an amazing spread of all these awesome meats with every side was right! We luved the onion rings and Northend fries, and the drinks we're great Moonshine punch yum and this Apple Bourbon that was delicious! The meal was wrapped up with a Apple Cobbler ala mode it was perfect! We will be back soon!

The food overall was good. Truly excellent homemade pickles. But served warm not hot. Pork was a bit fatty. Staff were very kind but obviously overwhelmed with the pace and number of patrons.

Was very cold in the dining area, they could work on keeping the heat better controlled. Also they didn’t have any of the special bourbons that they advertise to have for pour. Said they ran out of all a few weeks ago (Weller’s, Pappy, Van Winkle, Willett’s)

We had high hopes, but left disappointed. The restaurant is nice and the menu looked awesome, but the food did not follow through. We had the loaded fries as an appetizer which fell a little flat- they were under seasoned. For dinner we had ribs, chicken, turkey breast, greens, salad, Mac and cheese, and fries. The ribs were really good. The chicken and turkey were kinda bland and a little dry. The sides were probably the best part- except the salad which I got with Ranch. Their version of Ranch was awful - watery with a hint of dill and way too heavy on the buttermilk.
We wanted to try the adult milkshake, but were informed they were out....
Overall, it was ok, but we will not be going back...

had the Texas brisket sandwich and the brisket came served cubed..... very hard to keep the meat on the bun when served this way. IMO all brisket should be served in slabs, not cubed... easier to eat... flavor was good, had fries as my side and they were also good. Next time will be for dinner as they have a great selection of Bourbons....

Awesome baby back ribs -- nice smoke ring, large and juicy. Beef brisket also had a nice smoke ring and came with burnt ends -- very juicy, with beefy taste that didn't need any barbecue sauce. Good variety of craft beers on draft -- our beer was cold and appropriately priced. We ate in the bar -- service was quick and friendly. We will definitely be back -- the pit master knows their craft!

We dined at North End for the second time and enjoyed ourselves. We love BBQ and find North End to be quite satisfying. The ribs were very flavorful and tender. The brisket was slightly tough or undercooked, but still very good. The potato salad was excellent! We really enjoyed the house made BBQ sauces. Very flavorful!

Fast service . Great food. I probably should have taken a little more time to enjoy the appetizer ( salmon dip) before ordering my entree. Great selection of moonshine.
Chocolate cake (5 layers!) was incredible.

There was a private function in the back, so we had to eat in the bar. That was no big deal, but the server was also bar tending and was clearly not happy about having to wait tables as well. Service was slow, unfriendly, food was lukewarm- we won’t be going back.

There was a hair in my drink. Gross! It was replaced and comped. Overall, waitress was impossible to track down. No refills on soda or water until asked. She walked by several times, but never looked our way.

Server was nice and friendly, didn't rush us giving us time to peruse the "Liquids" menu. We came for the Devour Indy menu special which gave the two of us a portion of Brisket, Pulled Pork, Sausage, Rib and Chicken. All of it was very good. They have four house made sauces that all are very good. The chicken was roasted not pulled like so many other places. Our first visit will not be our last.

This is a fun place that serves good food and tasty cocktails in a cool, casual ambiance. We took a group of friends who hadn’t been before and everyone enjoyed the food and said they will be going back. A highlight for most was the side of mac and cheese with rib jam on top. One in our party had the butter lettuce salad and added salmon. Every bite was eaten! My husband ordered the spare ribs and, although tasty, felt they weren’t as good as the baby back ribs he’s had there before. Also, if you’re a bourbon fan, this is the place to go. They have hundreds.
