I've been here a few times. Each time the food is served quickly, service is friendly and feels local. As you might expect, things feel like a pub, but a more homely one. Fried foods are the specialty, and meet normal expectations.

After we did the Escape Room we headed over to the Nickel PlateBar & Grill. The staff was very accommodating on a very busy night we had a party of nine. Nickel plate is in the historical area and has A variety of food& spirits at a decent price.

We are new to the area and are trying to find restaurants we enjoy. After one meal here this is not one of them. Just mediocre bar food.

Used to love going here but found that it just wasn't quite the same . We ordered tenderloins and i might as well have been eating nothing ! No flavor what so ever ! Fries were good but otherwise ? I will say the fried pickles were quite tasty ! I hope we just caught a bad evening !

Reviews for the tenderloin sandwich were spot on! Was in Indy on business, locals suggested this place and I was not disappointed. Good service and good comfort food. We had breaded mushrooms to start and tenderloin sandwich for the main dish. No struggling to chew...it is after all called "tender"-loin! Fries were good too...

There is something for most people, but it is not very progressive, more homey, than tasty. The food reminds me of food from 20-30 years ago.

Highly rated and delicious breaded tenderloins at Nickel Plate. Accompany the sandwich with their delicious potato salad, and you will be leaving with a full tummy, completely sated. The wait staff are friendly and attentive. This restaurant's owner is a die hard Steelers fan, so exercise caution during game day especially if they're playing the Indianapolis Colts.

My daughter relocated to Indiana and soon found a Steeler haven that was not only friendly, but offered great pub food served by a really personable staff. Starting at the hostess stand to being greeted at our table by our server we encountered nothing but warm smiles. It was a Sunday afternoon and the place was quickly filling up with... More

This restaurant has been in Fishers for over 20 years great food award winning tenderloin. The service is awesome with many experienced waitresses and bar tenders. The thriving downtown area is a great place to walk around with huge park and outdoor amphitheater. Handles ice cream is close by for dessert.
