Even though we called to check before we stopped here, they did not have the game that we wanted to watch (we were told on the phone they did). They have three TV's in the bar area and do not have the football package. As long as you know that going in.... Food was very good - fish and chips... More

I was in Lafayette on business and wanted to go to a casual dining non-chain restaurant and eat at the bar since I was by myself. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and taste of the food. It was great and not pricey. The beer selection was outstanding and I had a local brew on tap. I have to... More

When in Lafayette this is ALWAYS our "go to" spot. 20+ visits and never a bad meal. In fact we held our son's wedding rehearsal dinner at 9 Irish. A fabulous time was had by all. They are fantastic about assisting in scaling a menu to fit your occasion needs. Lastly, you're in for a treat if you visit on... More

We enjoy eating at Nine Irish Brothers after a game at Purdue. They have a good variety of beers on tap and wonderful appetizers. New especially like the Irish Nachos! One negative is it s rather noisy inside when it is crowded. On days like that we prefer to sit outside so we can hear each other talk!

Business lunch with five people. Everyone had something different and it was all good. I had the Black & Blue salad that was very good. Others had various sandwiches. Good service.

More or less traditional Irish pub decor and atmosphere that is part of small chain of 3 restaurants in Indiana. We were not there on the weekend, when they have music, but that would add to the experience. The menu featured traditional Irish food and a surprising number of salads. The service was very friendly and attentive.

Did a great job of meeting our groups needs with private dining room. Fish and chips is right on. Had same room for dinner on the same week, felt isolated for dinner, no cultural experience with the bar or music because of the room. Server did well, but can work harder on the charm. Entrees for dinner are very big.... More

This is our "local," the pub we go to for a quick bite and a beer, or where we stop for live music on the weekend. The food is reliably good, the wait staff is friendly and efficient, and the prices are quite reasonable. I met a friend here recently for a weekend lunch, and we spent quite a long... More

We stopped in to 9 irish for a few drinks after a meal. Good spot with a busy atmosphere. The night we were in was a quiet night. They have made a good homely feeling of the place

Nine Irish Brothers is an award-winning traditional Irish pub--recently named the Best Irish Pub in the State of Indiana by Yelp and Buzzfeed--with two convenient locations in Greater Lafayette, Indiana, and a third location in the heart of Massachusetts Avenue in Indianapolis. Our family-owned-and-operated restaurant serves premium Irish food and spirits and has a full bar and menu, with items ranging from salads to steak to Irish favorites such as Guinness Stew, Shepherd's Pie, and Fish & Chips. Well-behaved patrons of all ages are welcome from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., unless circumstances prohibit minors (e.g. large, rowdy bands). Nine Irish Brothers is proud to be smoke-free. We also feature live Irish entertainment on most weekend nights. We take reservations for parties of six or more people.
