We visited this bar a couple of times, nice bar and ok priced drinks but 1 of the bar staff was so rude it was unreal, theres just no need to treat people with disrespect because you can't understand them! We are English and we speak English how hard is it?

My husband and I stopped here before the Colts game to "tailgate". We sat at the bar and had some drinks and apps. The food was fast and drinks were cold. Only gripe for me is I'm a Miller Lite girl and this was an all Bud bar. They had lots of other choice beers in bottles though, so I... More

We ate here because it was close our hotel and offered outside covered patio. The online menu is NOTHING like the menu given. It was average pub food. Nothing impressive. It is conveniently located next to Lucas Stadium

In town for a volleyball tournament and had a large group with adults and little kids. Downtown Indy was busy and we were able to walk in and eat and drink. It's not fine dining but they had wings, burgers etc. The beer was cold and our crew had fun. It is steps from Lucas Oil Stadium and it probably... More

Great place to eat if your staying nearby. Colts themed inside and out. Fun place to tailgate during the games. They have several TV's on the Smoking patio and Tiki Toss. One of the best cheeseburgers in Indy hands down. They have a really big menu and the inside is family friendly. Bottoms up draft beer dispenser is cheap entertainment.... More

They had great bar food, but nothing in smaller sizes for the kids. We visited while we were in town for Supercross and they had a special events menu that included pricing I overheard locals complaining about.

Dropped in because it was open and close to hotel. Food was average at best. Also could not figure out how tab was so high. There are better places nearby.

Loved all the Colts decorations and multiple TV's with very sports show on! Pizza was expensive $25 for two toppings but absolutely worth it! Burgers were huge. Good time for Sports Fans of all ages!

Wow... what can I say, with only 2 tables in the place for lunch it took 45 minutes for food. The wings were cooked to an absolute crisp, great if you are into that but not me. Average salads and dull beer selection on tap. This place would have been your normal 2-3 star rating right up to the point... More
