I was not wowed by the menu or the quality of the food. However, it's better and cheaper than what you'll get in the stadium and it's really close. The manager bent over backwards to get us seated and made sure we were served quickly...More

I went ahead and gave Tavern on South a 3-star review on my most recent 2-star visit because I've been here before and I know they're capable of better. The food is basic pub fare, but it's a nice atmosphere and the service is usually...More

In Indianapolis for an overnight while flying out for vacation and found Tavern online. The atmosphere was fantastic, and even on an 85 degree evening, the fans made the deck a great place to dine. Fantastic food, great drinks and superb service.

We went there for lunch with about 16 business associates. The food was excellent and the service quick despite the busyness. I had the crab cake sandwich and was very tasty. The location is 1 block from the Stadium which was very convenient for us.

There were too few servers, not enough cooking space, and the food that did come out to our table (after a 50-minute wait) was missing essential toppings and well over-cooked. We saw our server at our table a total of 3 times during our 90-minute...More
