First time at Union 50 and like all Cunningham Restaurants it did not disappoint!! The server was fantastic, very knowledgeable about the menu and no issues making a couple substitutions due to dietary restrictions. We were celebrating a birthday and received a complimentary dessert, the tres leches was delicious.
Can’t wait to come back and listen to the live music.

We had a wonderful time with amazing food, excellent service, and unique drinks. We had the cheese board and our sever provided great recommendations to try. We had a mix of small and large plates and everything was amazing. The Oathkeeper and Sangria were both unique and very good drinks. The only thing we did not enjoy was the extremely small table. It was disproportionately small and was the only thing that we did not enjoy in our experience.

Our service was the best part of the night! He was outstanding. And I’m drawing a blank on his name but he was sooo good. Started with M I think. We sat close to the stage and left shortly after the band started. Suggest to eat early and leave before the music if you want to converse with your group. The food was so so good. We will be back.

Restaurant is pretty big and feels comfortable regardless of how busy they are. The menu offers a good variety from small plates to entrees at a decent price point. We went on a Saturday night and ended our meal with live music, the restaurant had a band on their corner stage starting around 10pm. Fun vibe, good drinks, good value.

Wedding Anniversary- Mike (our waiter) greeted us with a Happy Anniversary welcome and complimentary Prosecco wine for a toast. Dinner was fantastic (Pork Chop was amazing). Mike then brought us a dessert of our choice, on the house. Fantastic place for special occasions and parties!

Nice décor. Very attentive staff. Good variety of food... the fries were delicious. The age of the patrons was very mixed so we didn't feel like we were in a place too young for us. It was a little loud but we could hear each other talk with no problems. We didn't stay for the live music but the list of bands looked interesting and good. We will go again.

I was surprised to find this little gem tucked in a neighborhood street was as wonderful as it turned out to be. Food was really good. Menu is a bit tricky to navigate if you are new to fab food but the server was very helpful to guide us through. I will definitely go back to try some of the more unique dishes that I was timid in trying. My Beef Tenderloin was super and I only had regrets in not trying some other things. We had a bit of a tight schedule with tickets to a show after dining so I will need to get back there when we have more time. Loved this place!

I LOVE this restaurant. I visited for the first time with colleagues in February, and could not wait to go back again with friends. Four us visited on a Saturday evening. AMAZING food and service. Union 50 is quickly becoming my favorite restaurant. Make sure to try the tres leches for dessert.

AMAZING! We were referred by a friend and hadn't even heard of Union 50, we went and we were NOT disappointed. The food was AMAZING! The restaurant/Bar area is beautiful. The outdoor fire pits are nice and the fact they leave the gate open for passing patrons is most welcoming. The selection of beers was outstanding! The menu is very different and welcoming, it is also awesome that there is a "chef's special" that isn't on the menu. We needed help navigating the menu but our waiter was more than eager to explain it to us. A MUST GO!

Ask for Devan as your server! She knows exactly what she is done, is very pleasant, and you will want for nothing as she is right on top of it! We had the best experience, the food was great, but the service was perfect. Thank you for a great evening out!

We always like union 50. We have been here a lot and even though there is not a ton on the menu, we end up liking it all. Drinks are good and the wine list is okay. Toast and jam, beet salad and bone marrow end up being our go to in whatever group I take.

The first thing I liked was that there was a parking lot for us to park in and it was a quick walk to the entrance. However, even though we had reservations at the bar, we were originally going to be seated in the regular dining area. I’m not sure the hostess even looked at my request. However, the place wasn’t busy so we were pretty much able to sit wherever we wanted, so we sat at a high top table in the bar area. One thing I really liked about the place was that it was pleasantly warm/comfortable. We had an appetizer, medium sized entrees, drinks, and dessert and everything was great. Great place for a date night! We both agreed we’d go back again!

We were visiting Indianapolis for the first time and a relative recommended Union 50. We had the BEST dining experience from start to finish. Everyone in the family (5) found something they wanted on the menu and every dish was delicious! I would dine here over and over again if I lived in Indy. Thanks for a memorable dining experience!

Everything we ordered turned out to be fantastic. The scallops, shrimp toast and mushrooms were all so delicious. Also got the chilaquiles poutine as appetizer and it was amazing. Ambiance is nice and its tucked away off the main street which gives it a nice, more quiet feel. Highly recommend!
