Good food and pleasant atmosphere. I was particularly happy with the prices. Lot of variety and very good service.

I really want to love this place. However, I only like it. The staff is friendly but does not give great service - ever. The food is seldom bad. It is also seldom good- just average. Go on a Saturday night though and hear the house band. It is a great music group that does sea chanteys, celtic music and the like. They are fabulous and pack the house.
They do not take reservations. So, you may have to wait for a table. I am a regular despite only average service and food. There is an intangible something about this place that brings you back over and over again.

While in Indianapolis on business, I decided to walk along College Ave. until I found a place that looked inviting. I happened upon the delightful Aristocrat Pub and Restaurant. Happy chance. I ordered the special, grilled salmon with rice pilaf and asparagus. Paired with a local craft beer, the meal was a 5-star. The asparagus was prepared to the perfect tender-crisp, while the salmon and rice were just right - some restaurants over cook all three items - so, like Goldilocks, I emphasize here, just right. The black bean soup was bland and lukewarm, but enhanced by the sour cream and onions on the side. The server was nice and allowed me to enjoy the outdoor garden cafe without the bums' rush that I sometimes get as a single diner. For dessert, I recommend the dense, chocolate bete noire and cup of coffee. If weather permits, sit outside for the company of the birds overhead and the lovely view of trees and flowers that separate the dining from the street traffic.

Atmosphere is warm and welcoming. When the weather is good, outdoor seating is great. Even though the pub sits on busy College Avenue, the plants out front provide a nice screen from the street. Excellent Reuben or Tenderloin sandwiches, great salads, and a nice range of beverages make this a great casual dining spot for lunch or dinner.

Since being remodeled after a fire, this is such a nice spot to visit. (It was nice before..now it is really nice..) Great for lunch, dinner or just to grab a bite and hang out. Spacious seating (Unless there is a Butler game that day! ;-) and attentive staff. Prices are decent. The Baked brie is incredible. Not sure why it is so great--it just is. Just the right mix of everything. Salads and sandwiches are quite ample. Always a great visit there. Variety of beers as well. Worth the stop.
