High top bar tables are a great place for a kid-free date night. Our server, Jack, was great… thank you for recommending the meatball appetizer! The seafood boil gnocchi had a nice kick to it. The only reason I’m giving the food 4 stars vs 5, is because my husband’s wasabi pea-crusted walleye had some bones in it. We typically go earlier in the evening with our kids, but it was fun to experience the restaurant from the “grown-up” side. As always, we will be back!

Seafood boil flavor was awesome but wayyy too much salt. Meatball appetizer was good, sauce was great, meatballs good, but they only give you an awkward number of 3.

Me and my wife had a rezy at 6:15 and was able to get in a little early. I was hoping for the oysters Rockefeller but they weren’t on the menu anymore so we ordered the seafood dip appetizer and it was very good. We shared a wedge salad and it was excellent. She had the wasabi pea crusted walleye and I had the seafood boil gnocchi. We enjoyed both of our entrees. We liked them because you can’t get them anywhere else. Everything came out very fast and the server JacksonE was excellent. The servers worked together very well. We came down from Muncie and we were not disappointed. We’ll be back to try some other dishes.

The food is fabulous-especially for the value. Meat was cooked perfectly and well seasoned and presented beautifully with a tasty melange of flavors. Have been many times and frequently take out of town guests there as it’s special and locally owned.

We enjoyed our dinner from start to finish. Our server, Jack, did a great job. We started with the crab dip - yum! Our entrees were a pork tenderloin, an encrusted whitefish and the Parmesan chicken. Everyone cleaned their plates. For dessert, we enjoyed an amazing coconut cheesecake. This was our first time here and we will return on future visits to Broad Ripple.

I found this restaurant by accident. The nail salon that I visited was across from this restaurant and it looked very inviting just from the outside, so I knew that my fiance and I had to go. the neighborhood is so cute and has a bohemian/crew/sealife feel to it, so the restaurant fits right in at this location. The dress is casual to business attire, but I would not dress down too much because you may feel out of place. We went for dinner the very next day and oh what a joy it was!! We sat at a high-top table in the bar area and the location was perfect. The service was awesome, the waiter that we had was oh so friendly and he knew what to bring to the table, refill or suggest before we had a chance to even ask for it. Excellent food, drinks, and the cost was not bad at all. I would recommend this restaurant over and over again and we will be visiting again.
