We stopped here for lunch after our guided tour of the nearby Lucas Oil Stadium and the service and food was quite good. Even with everyone ordering different menu items, our food only took less than 15 minutes to arrive. The atmosphere is nice and...More

Restaurant with very good food. Had a good Burger with fries and Salad. Went in twice, both times very good service. Waitress was very patient even that it took us very long to order. Again thanks for the good service and the good food.

We had the opportunity to eat at this location while in Indy for Drum Corps International (DCI) Finals weekend. We were seated upstairs and found that it was nice location. Staff was good, menu struck us a limited. Food was good as was service.

Convenient location & ambiance was ‘trendy tavern’. The Thai Salad was excellent & so were the majority of entrees. Creme Brûlée was served cold & typically I enjoy it warm. Would love to return.More

We called ahead and they stated they could handle the 30 of us for lunch. Not true. Too few wait staff. Food was ok, but not stellar. I think our group size overwhelmed themMore

When you order a pizza at a restaurant, you expect more than something you would make while broke in college. The pizza was a quesadilla shell and no sauce, way to much cheese, and 5 pepperoni. The “fresh kettle chips” are less fresh then a...More

I have eaten at the restaurant a few times and it is ok for the money. It doesn't particularly knock you socks off; however, it's not bad but for the price I expect a little more.
