The Noodle is one place I always try to get to when visiting Indy. Wednesday nights have a great open jam, with no cover! Beer prices are reasonable. I have only had appetizers, but they are good too. Will return!

Service here can be a bit on the slow side, but once you order, food comes fast. Prices are good and there’s a wide variety of food. Nice, historic place to grab lunch in downtown.
